Progression at every level
Innovation, a sporty stance, and style that conveys confident individuality.
These are the characteristics you expect from progressive, modern car
design. One glance at the bold new shape of the Kia Optima will convince
you that these qualities are effortlessly delivered.
Hone your competitive edge
The essence of modernity
With a bodyshell conceived as a single futuristic unit, the high-tech silhouette conveys all the
clean, streamlined references its designers could muster. The striking, sharply styled front end
is further refined by the contrasting black of the signature Kia radiator grille, bezel frame
headlights and lower air dam. The Optima is dynamism personified.

The cityscape...
Your natural playground
Turning heads thanks to its strong exterior styling, the Optima is the ideal accompaniment
to urban living. High-tech rear lamps and reflectors emphasise the elegant visual flow, while
oval, chrome-tipped exhaust pipes put the accent on power.
06 / 07
Sleek and purposeful
from front to back
There are some things that all sporty cars have in common: a long athletic
bonnet, a lowered profile, and chrome detailing. One dynamic styling attribute
after another all come together in perfect harmony to create the Kia Optima.
Character lines
A vehicle’s outline is what defines its character. The
Optima’s coupe-like roofline, flowing smoothly
into the high rear deck, merges uninterrupted
with the strong C-pillar.
08 / 09
HID Xenon headlamps with static bending lights
that attracts attention
Projection headlamps and a high-mounted LED stop lamp are just some
the defining features of the Optima. LED daytime running lights heighten
the specification even more, while the optional sport package offers
unique 18-inch alloy wheels and LED rear combination lamps, adding to
the dynamic appeal.
Static bending lights
Available as an option, HID headlamps with static bending lights
increase your visibility when cornering, synchronising with the
turns of the steering wheel to light up more of the road.

The Optima’s muscular athleticism is carried through to the cabin. A cockpit area shaped
around the driver combines with a sturdy 4-spoke steering wheel for complete control.

Supervision cluster with 3.5” colour TFT LCD
A high-tech, visually striking supervision cluster emulates classic sports car instrumentation with its dual cylinder
design. Featuring a 3.5” colour TFT LCD, it gives you essential information such as average fuel economy, trip
distance, distance to empty, open door warning and outside temperature. At the same time it allows you to fully
customise the menu to your own desired settings.
Centre fascia
The centre fascia is angled towards the driver by 9.6 degrees, putting the audio,
navigation and air conditioning systems within easy reach and making control and
operation as uncomplicated as possible. All the while contributing to the feeling of
spaciousness and comfort.
14 / 15
Paddle shifters
Paddle shifters bring an exciting new dimension to your driving through their ability to make lightning-quick gear
changes, just like a competition vehicle. Positioned at the end of your fingertips just behind the steering
wheel, they do away with the need to take your hands off the wheel in order to shift gears.
Take your seat in the Optima and what registers first is the array of technologically
advanced features at your disposal. From paddle shifters to auto cruise control, and
from a bright, easily-readable supervision cluster to the wraparound, driver-oriented
centre fascia, this is a car designed for the here and now, with one eye on the future.
◦ Dual zone full auto temperature control
Different people prefer different temperatures. No problem
– the climate control divides into two individually adjustable
zones for custom tailored comfort.
More space, more comfort,
more sophistication
Despite a lowered exterior height and an elevated beltline, interior dimensions
on the Optima have actually been increased. How? Through the
innovative use of space and the judicious layout of elements.
Headroom and legroom are generous for both front and
rear passengers. Driver comfort has received particular
attention, with the driver seat incorporating an advanced
memory system that remembers the settings for two
different drivers. And so that the front passengers aren't
left out, their seat gets the same treatment.

Attention to detail For you and those closest to you
The spaciousness of the Optima allows your friends and family to
experience all the reassuring comfort and elegance that are built
into this highly refined vehicle. At the same time, they’ll
appreciate the use of luxury materials and the emphasis on
texture – the finishing of the seats blending seamlessly
with the trim detailing. Storage is generous too, with
door pockets, cup and bottle holders, and seat back
pockets. All of it perfectly complemented by cool
mood lamps and interior lighting.
