OPTIMA MEDIA REVIEWS
2016 Kia Optima Review - Inside LaneThe 2016 Kia Optima takes on the likes of Ford Mondeo and Skoda Superb, but good cars. Can the new premium design of the Optima and its good value for money take on the best in class? Power is sourced from a 1.7 litre diesel engine producing 139bhp and over 340Nm of torque. A 7 speed dual clutch automatic transmission provides smooth and fast changes. 64 mpg combined is claimed.
The Top Gear car review: Kia OptimaThe quality impression created by the outside is present within the Optima too. The dashboard is smart-looking and details such as a shiny wood insert at the top of the steering wheel help raise the ambience, taking attention away from the few cheap and shiny plastics that do remain.
2016 Kia Optima 1.7 CRDi Eco reviewIt’s certainly classier inside. The new dashboard architecture is very pleasant indeed, providing a more premium feel with added satin trim and piano black inserts.
