Executive drivers - and anyone seeking that bit more elegance from their vehicle - will love the Kia Optima.
The smooth silhouette of the Optima is created by a longer roof line, which slopes above the side sill mouldings and chrome and body-coloured door fittings. A single chrome-tipped exhaust highlights the rear of the car, matching the bright front grille. In the cabin, up to five adults can travel in comfort on smart black cloth, and the front seats slide and recline. For infotainment on the move, a trip computer and Bluetooth with voice controls are both standard.
A powerful 1.7-litre diesel engine is fitted under the saloon’s gently curved bonnet. It partners with a six-speed gearbox, which can be chosen as an automatic or manual, and produces 134bhp in either case. The Optima’s other important figures are the maximum 57.6mpg combined and 1.3-tonne braked towing limit.
Safety is a priority for every Kia owner, which is why the Optima is fitted with such a long list of protection and security features. When it’s parked up, the saloon is kept safe by deadlocks, an alarm and an engine immobiliser. You’ll feel reassured by the twin surrounding airbags and child safety measures out on every drive.
If you’d like to experience the Kia Optima for yourself, please come to Hidsons. From our Kent dealership, you can take a test drive and order the car at any available trim level.
