I dislike when I need to write this kind of articles, but unfortunately, its true. Kia decided not to launch an Optima Wagon (based on the Kia SportSpace concept). 

[ads id=”0″ style=”float:left;padding:5px;”]When the South Korean carmaker unveiled the Kia Sportspace concept in March at the Geneva Motor Show, there was a big exciment on the media, Kia fans, also not only Kia fans with the possibility of this concept car turns into a production model.

The bad news arrived from the USA arm of Kia where Orth Hendricks, Kia Motors America (KMA) vice president of product planning told to Auto Guide during the New York AutoShow, “We looked at it. It’s a beautiful car and obviously it’s a big deal in Europe mainly because they love estates over there.”  he said.

“However, the company determined the Kia Sportspace concept would overlap with the Sorento and wouldn’t attract enough buyers to justify the production costs.” he added.

Ok so, today is a bad day, don’t you think? 🙁
