The new 2015 Kia Optima is available. 2015 remains to be the year most car companies choose to unleash their latest models to the market. One car maker is however not shying away from the challenge. With a tradition of producing sedans,KIA Optima remains one of the sought after models in the coming year.
One inevitable fact is that the sedan will come with further improvements to the earlier model given the other car releases from rival companies. However whether KIA has sought to address the customer needs in terms of overall design, interior space and generally affordability in the mid-range Sedan category. It is quickly coming into terms that it’s difficult to please all people all the time, eventually compromise has to be reached.
Design -Exterior and Interior
The exterior appearance is an improvement and would rival the other models in the category like Mazda 6 or Ford Fusion. A sharper looking front has been added, with an inclusion of LED fog lights that spruce up its overall look. Perhaps it’s natural for the tail of most of the forth coming cars to be revised and the Optima is no exception. Whether it is for aerodynamic purposes or just improved general appearance; KIA seems to have pushed the envelope on the optima’s new tail.
One cannot deny that (4 years ago to be precise) KIA was the leading car manufacturer in terms of design in the midrange sedan category. However it remains evident if the interior design is anything to go by. The interior has been termed “roomy” by most pundits with plenty of leg space. However, when it comes to interiors, aside from the need for space, the exquisite design is often paramount and in this case, is what sets it apart from the others.
While most cars in the modern era seem to have almost the same interior, the cockpit of the Optima remains minimalist in nature without many gadgets save for the necessary ones. A TFT instruments panel with USB slots for playback options are a plus in addition to the fine leather finish and metal trim in the interior.
2015 KIA Optima Performance
The 2015 KIA optima come with a V6 engine and four cylinder powered engine might seem as a short end of the stick for lovers of power. However, depending on the choice, turbo charge and hybrid models are equally available for car lovers who put performance ahead of anything.2.4 litre direct injection gives a total of 200 horse power and six speed transmissions is a modest value in terms of performance but fuel economy has been improved compared to earlier models.
