2016 Kia Optima.jpg

Kia K5/Kia Optima (TG). 2015 to date (prod. n/a). 4-door sedan, 5-door wagon. F/F, 1591, 1998, 1999, 2359 cm³ petrol, 1685 cm³ diesel, 1999 cm³ LPG (I4 DOHC). A new Hyundai Sonata meant that a new K5 was bound to follow suit, unveiled at the New York Auto Show. Less sporty in looks with Kia showing off its premium quality, but losing some of its distinctiveness; car is larger, stiffer and stronger, but no heavier, than its predecessor. The 2·4 produced the least power of the three launch engines, as Kia went to turbocharging for the 1·6 and 2·0. Plenty of kit for the money, as expected.


Manufacturing location: Hwasung, Korea; West Pt, Georgia, USA

Marque: Kia | Model: Kia K5 | Predecessor: Kia K5 (TF)
