2016 Kia Optima
Looking a lot (a lot!) like the outgoing model. ( I said a lot!)
You almost get a a “Why bother” feeling by looking at it.
Sure, it looks really good. But does it really look better than the current one?
Interior is still very nice, if a bit more conservative.
Engines are pretty much the same, with a 2.4 Liter and 2.0 Turbo.
(Now with a bit less power)
And the 1.6 Liter Turbo also available in the new Sonata.
Which, I think, should be the base engine. If GM can put a 1.5 L Turbo as the base engine in the new Malibu, Kia could sure do the same thing with their small/efficient 1.6.
And what happened to THIS front end???
