Across the Optima range you'll find more progressive driving dynamics, innovative safety technologies and a higher class interior than ever before.
The Kia Optima has undergone an evolution. The good looks that we all know still remain, however it is now available with a potent turbocharged engine.
The Kia 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.
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.
