2014 Kia Optima Facelift revealed

Kia has unveiled the updated Optima saloon at the New York Auto Show.

In U.S the 2014 Optima will be available in LX, EX, SX and SX-Limited trims with first cars arriving in showrooms in the third quarter of the year. The European spec model will be launched in early 2014.

The facelifted Optima features updated front and rear end, a revised grille, new rear diffuser, redesigned bootlid, LED daytime running lights, new LED rear lamps and new wheel designs.

Moving on into the cabin, the new Optima reveals two new displays: a 4.3-inch TFT LCD instrument cluster and optional high-resolution 8-inch navigation and telematics screen, featuring UVO eServices, an 8-speaker Infinity sound system, HD Radio and Satellite Radio. There are also new seat designs and materials available.

New addition is an optional new Blind Spot Detection (BSD) system, which includes rear cross-traffic alert and rear parking sensors.

The US spec model is powered by a 2.4-litre GDi four-cylinder, 2.0-litre GDi turbo engine or a 2.4-litre hybrid powertrain. All engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission featuring Sportmatic clutch-free shifting.
