Last month, Kia launched an advertising campaign for the new Optima, and now there are several undisguised photos on the Internet.

The first batch was posted on Bobaedream and reportedly took photos during the photo shoot for promotional purposes. They show that the future sedan will have a sleek appearance.

Despite the fact that the images are not of very high quality, we can see a streamlined body with thin bends. There are also outstanding side skirts and a corner accent that cuts through the doors.

Sporty style continues in the back, as we see a ventilated bumper and a trunk with a built-in spoiler. Other highlights include a dual exhaust system and a small diffuser. The taillights have also been redesigned and are now connected by a thin stripe.

Under the grill is a trapezoidal air intake, on the sides of which there are corner fog lights and sports side openings. We can also see the distinctive hood and rounded front bumper.

As for the interior, it was announced earlier this week and has a modern design. Details will be announced in December, but the image shows that the car will be endowed with an autonomous digital instrument cluster and infotainment system.

Engine options remain unconfirmed, but they may be the same as those offered on Hyundai Sonata. This means that motorists can count on a 1.6-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine that develops 180 hp. (134 kW / 183 hp) and 195 Nm (264 Nm) of torque. An atmospheric 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 191 hp should also be installed. (142 kW / 194 hp) and 181 lb-ft (245 Nm) of torque.
