On Monday, April 20, KIA introduced in the Celestial Empire a new version of the KIA Optima sedan that replaced the generation. The release of new items will be the Chinese factory KIA and Dongfeng.

A new modification of the new generation KIA Optima debuted in China. The first test KIA Optima of the sixth generation was introduced three months ago. Then the car was prepared for mandatory certification. With the change of generation, the Korean sedan has changed dramatically in appearance. The brand offered its customers a spectacular fastback with a sloping roof line, stylish optics and a shortened trunk lid. To improve visibility, the exterior mirrors were moved to the doors. It was decided to combine taillights in one monoblock.

The length of the next Optima increased by 50 mm to 4,905 mm, its width increased by 25 mm to 1,860 mm, and its wheelbase increased by 45 mm to 2,850.

 In China, the new Optima will receive a one and a half liter 176-horsepower turbo engine. Another affordable engine is the 190-horsepower turbocharged two-liter from the Smart Stream family. There was also a hybrid version: the 195-horsepower installation included an atmospheric G2.0 engine and a 48-volt starter-generator. Sales of the Chinese version of the KIA Optima local assembly are scheduled for September.
