It is Rocket Science.

Across the Optima range you'll find more progressive driving dynamics, innovative safety technologies and a higher class interior than ever before.


Technologically progressive

The Optima has undergone an evolution. The good looks that we all know still remain, however it is now available with a potent turbocharged engine.


Optima GT Turbo

The Optima GT Turbo brings sportiness and performance to the range. It's not just mechanical changes, either. On the outside, you'll find a deeply scalloped rear diffuser, LED lighting at the rear and a sportier front bumper to complement its powerful 180 kW engine.


Optima GT

Instantly, you'll notice the heritage of award-winning design throughout the Optima GT. A bolder, wider interpretation of Kia's signature Tiger-nose grille can be found leading its design. A sharp, modern roofline follows suit across the top of the car, resulting in a sporty, yet stylish profile.


Premium Finish

Only the finest materials have been used throughout the interior of the Kia Optima range from extended use of soft touch materials throughout the cabin and Sports "Tubular" Seats on the GT model.


Technologically Advanced

You'll also find high-quality technologies as standard. Blind Spot Detection, Advanced Smart Cruise Control, Autonomous Emergency Braking1 and a 10-speaker Harman/Kardon® sound system in the Optima GT Model.


High-Quality Materials

Inside the GT model, you'll find genuine Aluminium gracing the lower centre console. There's also heated and ventilated seats, a heated steering wheel and Wireless Phone Charging* on GT Models.

Lightning-quick reflexes

The chassis of the all new Optima has been engineered for a smoother ride and more responsive handling through the road's twists and turns.


Advanced Material Construction

Thanks to smarter use of cutting-edge metals and adhesives at critical points of the vehicle chassis, the Kia Optima surrounds you with a lightweight yet strengthened cage—setting a new standard for occupant safety.
