Appearance chetyrehdverki, which sooner or later will appear on the role of "Optima" in our country, has changed radically-from the design of the head optics and tail lights and ending with the silhouette. Kia Optima ceased to be a classic three-volume, turning into a semblance of whether liftback, or fastback for example Audi A5 Sportback.
However, technically it remained a sedan: the trunk lid for the sake of external effect noticeably shortened, but the rear window with it does not rise. But the model now looks very dynamic, and what will be the rear passengers and those who will load in the" Optima " large suitcases, remains to be seen.
New grille and bumper, embossed hood, diffuser and air intakes at the rear, wheels measuring up to 19 inches and chrome edging Windows-all this should create a visual mix of aggression and luxury. By the way, according to rumors, the glass became frameless, and edging received not only the side Windows, but also the rear.
Along the way, Kia shared information about the dimensions of new items. As expected, it has grown slightly-by 50 mm in length and 25 mm in width. Wheelbase immediately added 45 mm (up to 2 850 mm), but the height for obvious reasons decreased by 20 mm.
Images of the interior has not yet been published, but judging by the recent design teaser, it is also waiting for a thorough processing. In the cabin, "Optima" should appear large touch screens and panels instead of physical buttons and rotary "washer" selector machine instead of the usual lever. Sales of the sedan under the name Kia K5 in the home market will start in December.
