The next-generation Kia Optima is scheduled to be revealed at 2015 New York Auto Show held on the first week of April, but ahead this debut, Kia has recently released the first teaser image of its new Optima (codenamed as JF) in a Sports Wagon concept ahead of the Geneva debut.
[ads id=”4″ style=”float:left;padding:9px;”]Kia describes the “Sportspace” vehicle only as a D-segment concept. Today we want to take a look closer into a complete gallery of live pictures taken at Kia’s European Design Center.
“The concept has been created as a spacious and versatile accessory to an active lifestyle, as a purposeful, energetic design study for the style-conscious, and as a sanctuary from the stresses of the modern world,” said Kia.
The interior quality will get another step forward, like in the new generation Kia Sorento, and looking at the spy picture, the 2016 Kia Optima will have new 8″ inch infotainment system under chromed bar, getting all the attention from the new leather-wrapped dash, new infotainment and air controls. The 2016 Kia Optima will use the same steering wheel we saw on the Sportage spy shots.
The concept looks to be close to production ready Kia Optima Wagon and points to a new family of mid-size models from Kia, including sedan, wagon and possibly coupe derivatives, powered by petrol, turbo-petrol, diesel and hybrid powertrains. Stay tuned for Geneva!
