The network published photos of the next generation of the Korean luxury sedan Kia Optima under the factory designation DL3c.

The next generation of the Optima model from the current generation will be distinguished by the presence of a large radiator grill – this is what Chinese buyers like in cars. The grill extends to the lower area of ​​the headlamp, and the lines are horizontal and located between rhombuses.

The lower grille also became longer, and the fog lights took the place of the ventilation holes at the end of the grille. The latter, by the way, have become thinner. The headlights remain the same, and now we see a close-up of the form of DRL in the off state. In addition, a camera was installed from the front of the car, right on the upper area of ​​this enlarged radiator grill.

 The new Kia Optima in America will be offered with two different turbocharged engines and three different transmission types. 1.6T will be available with two levels of performance, with one of the variations acquiring an 8-speed automatic transmission, and the other with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.

  The all-new 2.5-liter Theta3 engine with an output of approximately 286 hp, which will work in conjunction with an 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox and all-wheel drive system, will become the flagship.
