Full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/kia/optima/saloon/review
The Kia Optima is an attempt to introduce something a little more daring to a segment that includes dull but worthy models like the Toyota Avensis. Its bold looks and well-appointed cabin will draw some attention and it also comes fitted with a 1.7-litre diesel that provides a good balance between performance and running costs.

Powerful, Stylish and Fuel Efficient Midsize Sedan Returns in 2012 with Higher Levels of Technology and Refinement
Kia's popular midsize sedan is one of the brand's strongest performers and is now produced alongside the best-selling Sorento at Kia's manufacturing facility in West Point, Georgia
Optima's superior combination of performance, style, technology and long list of convenience features has earned praise from consumers and industry observers
IRVINE, Calif., September 26, 2011 - Since its launch in late 2010, Kia Motors America's (KMA) sleek sedan has stood apart from the crowd in the traditionally mundane midsize segment with its head-turning design, fun-to-drive performance, modern amenities and long list of standard safety features. In its first year on the market, the 2011 Kia Optima earned consumer and critical acclaim while sales increased nearly 150 percent and demand outpaced supply. The extraordinary growth is complemented by a slew of awards and accolades, such as being named "Most Gorgeous Car Under $20k" by Esquire, a 2011 "Editors' Most Wanted" vehicle by Edmunds' Inside Line, 2011 "Best New Model" by Kiplinger's Personal Finance, and inclusion on the "Ward's 10 Best Interiors" list. In addition to being recognized in the press, Optima also has received prestigious safety accolades being named a 2011 "Top Safety Pick" by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) and receiving an overall five-star crash safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Available in three trims -- LX, EX, and SX -- the Optima builds on an already solid platform for 2012 and adds numerous packaging and technology enhancements and new consumer-friendly amenities to provide a more upscale feel. On the outside, the 2012 Optima receives standard chrome accented exterior door handles, fog lights, heated outside mirrors, and new automatic light control on LX models while LED tail lights are now standard on EX models.
Moving inside, the 2012 Optima raises the technology bar by adding a standard eight-speaker Infinity®1 audio system, HD Radio, Kia's new UVO powered by Microsoft®2 voice-activated infotainment system, and power folding outside mirrors to the Premium Package on EX, EX turbo and SX models. To further enhance Optima's interior refinement, a revised center fascia finish was added to all models while standard wood trim and metal bezel finishes make their way to EX models. For added convenience, Optima models equipped with a 2.4-liter gasoline direct injection (GDI) engine will feature a Tire Mobility Kit.
Sleek and Modern Exterior
Originally conceived at Kia's Irvine-based design center, the Optima projects a refined, performance-oriented aesthetic with a sleek silhouette, aggressive stance, and sculpted elements that evoke passion and communicate Kia Motors' philosophy of creating stylish and dynamic vehicles. In keeping with Kia's design motif, the Optima's aggressive face proudly features the brand's signature tabbed grille complemented by projector headlamps to round out the visual appeal and Optima's coupe-like profile is accentuated by a sweeping chrome arc that flows seamlessly from the A through the C pillars -- a distinctive design element that visually lowers the car while enhancing its proportions. Optima's roofline connects with its pronounced shoulder line that leads to its sculpted flanks and extended wheelbase. Boldly flared wheel arches and a raked cabin create a sedan with a graceful muscular stance.
Every 2012 Optima comes well equipped with a generous roster of standard features, with the LX trim offering dual Exhaust with chrome tips, solar glass, outside mirror turn signal indicators, front fog lights, outside heated mirrors, and new chrome accented outside door handles and 16-inch steel wheels fitted with 205/65R16 tires. LX models equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission add 16-inch alloy wheels. The volume-leading EX trim offers larger 17-inch alloy wheels fitted with 215/55R17 tires while the EX turbo features a black gloss and chrome front grille and LED tail lights. Moving to the top-of-the-line SX trim, consumers will find unique 18-inch polished alloy wheels with 225/45R18 tires, unique front and rear lower bumpers and side sills, a rear lip spoiler, aero wiper blades, and HID head lights with auto leveling.
Functional, Engaging Interior Space
With sleek modern lines and a host of thoughtful features, the interior of the Optima exudes performance and was designed with drivers in mind. From the instrument panel that's contoured toward the driver to create a cockpit-like feel to the precise gauges and steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, Optima's interior provides the experience of a performance vehicle without sacrificing comfort or roominess. A sport-inspired short shifter delivers crisp shifts while an available panoramic sunroof provides an open-air feeling.
2012 Kia Optima - The Thriller
Sick and twisted, it's almost like the very vehicle itself was created in the walls of Arkham Asylum by the Joker himself. Sinister, beautiful, and plush...say those words 3 times, put on the strait jacket and we'll commit you now.
This 2012 Kia Optima SX turbo has the ability to dominate the road with a chip on its shoulder the size of Mount Everest. Leather heated and cooled seats, panoramic sunroof, traction control, blue tooth, Sirius/XM radio with a 5 Year/60,000 mile Basic Warranty and a 10 Year/100,000 mile Power Train Warranty.
An incredible 275 horsepower while still delivering up to 34mpg. Oh, we might also mention that with $0 down and $389 a month you could be an owner. How can we do all this you ask? Because we wrote the book on insanity. To any and all other cars...be afraid...be very afraid.

► 2012 Kia Optima
Arriving in Kia showrooms in Europe next Spring, the next generation Optima continues Kia's design-led transformation, while revealing a completely new and stunning design language for Kia, highlighted by a dynamic and streamlined profile that conveys elegance and athletic confidence from every angle. Kia's new sedan will be called 'Optima' in all markets outside Korea.
Designed at Kia's studios in Frankfurt, Germany and Irvine, California, the all-new Optima is longer, wider and lower than the vehicle it replaces and is based on an all-new midsize platform that allows for distinctive dimensions and proportions, while also providing a unique canvas for Kia's global design team to pen a vehicle that stands apart from everything else in its segment.
