Fully updated on the outside

The Kia tiger-nose grille takes pride of place at the front and features a bright chrome finish. New front bumpers, new LED tail lights and fresh designs for the headlights and fog lights, all make the 2018 Kia Optima stand out, whilst the Optima Saloon also features an updated rear bumper. In addition to new 17” and 18” alloy wheel designs, there’s an exciting new exterior colour available: Runway Red.

Kia Optima Interior

And even more desirable on the inside

Sophisticated black cloth upholstery comes as standard on the Grade 2 model, with the addition of faux leather for the Grade 3, whilst there’s also a brand new design for the steering wheel. To add to the sophistication of the interior, a satin-chrome trim features on the centre console and extends right across the dashboard.

Lower emissions, lighter weight, fully turbocharged

Depending on your model and engine choice, your new Optima Saloon could give you up to 62.8mpg, CO2 emissions of only 117g/km and a 0-60mph time of 10.6 seconds. The new Kia Optima Saloon features the all-new ‘U3’ 1.6-litre CRDi diesel engine with an active emissions control system to bring it well within the requirements of the new Euro 6d TEMP emissions standard for CO2, particulates and NOx. In spite of these significant improvements, you’ll enjoy superb performance with 134PS of power and 320Nm of torque available. The Grade 2 comes with a 6-speed manual ISG transmission as standard, whilst the Grade 3 offers a choice of the manual transmission or a 7-speed DCT ISG.

With a tweaked chassis offering improved agile handling and a smoother, more comfortable ride, the new Kia Optima puts you in charge with its drive mode selector. The Eco, Comfort, Sport and Smart modes mean you can choose whether to prioritise economy or acceleration, whilst the Smart mode works with you to anticipate your preferences and the current road conditions.

Kia Optima Design

Safer by design, safer by technology

Kia offers the new Optima Saloon with a choice of intelligent active safety systems under its Advanced Driver Assistance Systems banner, meaning the Optima is one of the safest cars in its class. The Driver Attention Warning system monitors both the driver and the car, sounding a warning and activating a display, if it detects that the driver is dangerously tired. Other systems available include Forward Collision-avoidance Assist with pedestrian recognition and Lane Keeping Assist. In addition, the full LED headlamps come with Dynamic Bending Light and High Beam Assist.
