According to Kia Motors at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show on September 15, the cutting-edge Sportspace concept car, which it was unveiled in March, will turn into a production car to create an Optima Wagon for targeting European market. 

[ads id=”0″ style=”float:left;padding:5px;”]Developed by the Kia Design Center in Frankfurt (Germany), the Sportspace concept car garnered attention as it offered a glimpse of how the design of the All-New Kia Optima (also called K5 in South Korea) will be.

The Optima Wagon is expected to be released early next year as a strategic model for the European market where the demand for wagon-type vehicles is high and will be designed from the Sportspace. 

Kia Motors officials said that chances are low that the K5 Wagon will be released in Korea and not even in North America. In the meantime, Kia Motors has showcased its new Optima and Optima GT models at the Frankfurt Motor Show a few days ago.

The new Optima will come in two types including the 2.0-liter gasoline and 1.7-liter diesel models, and in the near future will receive a plug-in hybrid model and a high performance variant, with 245 hp Turbo engine. Is expected that the Sportspace will have the same engine range, could be a GT-line model if it works.
