Kia’s all new Optima GT has a lot to offer
Conceived under the watchful eye of Kia’s president and chief design officer, Peter Schreyer, with modern and instantly recognizable design cues, the Optima GT maintains its athletic identity but rides on a chassis that is longer, wider and stiffer for improved ride and handling and a more spacious cabin. The Optima GT’s luxurious interior is obsessively crafted with an impressive attention to detail and features real stitching along the dash and doors, complimented by tasteful metallic accents.
This Kia Optima GT is bigger than its predecessor. In total, it is 10mm longer than the previous model, 30mm wider, 10mm higher and has a 10mmonger wheelbase. The increase in height also gives the interior more passenger space with a 10mm more headroom, 25mm more legroom and 17mm more shoulder room at the rear and 20mm more shoulder space up front.
The all-new Kia Optima GT offers the ideal balance of power, comfort, spaciousness and more importantly, safety for the entire family. It is a rare breed that has all the modern features that are expected of a modern car, and buyers can rest easy in a car which also comes with a five-year warranty.
The all-new Kia Optima GT will be offered in three different colors: Gravity Blue, Aurora Black and Snow White Pearl. It will be available in showrooms nationwide.
