Available across three trims – Optima '2,' '3,' and '4' – starting from £21,495, the Kia Optima provides head-turning design, a wealth of enjoyable cabin features, the highest levels of safety features plus – as with every new Kia model in the range – Kia's pioneering 7 year/100,000mile warranty.
The exterior design of the new Kia Optima is elegant and strong so it won't fail to turn heads. Using 17" or 18" alloy wheels, as well as a chrome tipped exhaust and chrome roof line, the new Optima breathes sophistication. There's tinted glass for privacy, but also all round electric windows as standard and the option of a panoramic roof in the '4' specification to ensure you make the most of natural light.
You can drive in comfort with a heated steering wheel in the '3' and '4' specification, added to with heated seats in the top-level model. ISOFIX child seat fittings are included as standard, making the new Optima practical as well as stylish.
The new Kia Optima includes a wealth of technology as standard, as well as a range of optional features, all designed to help make your driving experience as enjoyable as possible.
With USB points in front and rear, and a DAB radio included as standard, both driver and passengers will be able to relax on long journeys. In the higher specifications, there's a Premium Sound System featuring 10 speakers to give you crystal clear sound. A 7" or 8" touchscreen satellite navigation system aids travel, particularly with the inclusion of KiaConnected which gives information about traffic, speed cameras, weather conditions, and more. There's even a wireless phone charger in the '4' model to ensure you're never caught short.
Safety technology is tantamount, so the new Optima comes with Hill Start Assist Control as well as parking sensors in the front and rear. There are rain sensing wipers so that your needs are met before you even have to think. In the '4' you'll also benefit from a Park Assist System and Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

Equipped with a 1.7 litre CRDi 134bhp engine and available with a choice of 6-speed manual or 7-speed automatic DCT transmission, the new Kia Optima offers great performance wherever you go. It can achieve a combined mileage of up to 67.3mpg, making it efficient as well as stylish.
What's more, CO2 emissions are now as low as 110g/km, and Start-Stop technology helps to further reduce emissions when you're temporarily paused in traffic or at lights. The result is that the Optima is better for the environment and for your wallet. There's no Vehicle Excise Duty in the first year, and after that it's just £20 or £30 annually depending on your specification.
In the Optima, experienced Kia technicians have produced a 5-seat saloon that performs impressively for its engine size.
