    Where’s the next generation Optima? I thought they were revealing that car soon? The Sonata was revealed already. This is the same body as the current car.

      Yeah, we reported that few weeks ago. The new Optima is expected to debut in 2015, during Detroit Motor Show or New York Motor Show in April, first of all, will be revealed in South Korea at the end of the year or earlier 2015.

      The next K5/Optima will be released next year, if I’m not mistaken. I don’t think HMA would be foolish enough to release two vehicles that are in the same class segment, since that would easily hurt sales on both companies.
