Ep.11 John Hughes presents the Kia Optima

Jun 1 2011

Contact the Dealer Directly

Address: Cnr Shepperton Road & Twickenham Street Victoria Park Perth, WA 6100

The new Optima has been completely re-designed from the ground up.

This new car is longer, wider and lower that the previous model giving it a sleek and elegant look. It also has flared wheel arches which create a slightly muscular edge. The front end has been completely re-designed with a new grille and some fancy new headlights. During the day you have the LED runner lights but at night you can experience the static cornering lights. The headlights sense where the steering wheel is being turned and illuminate the road accordingly.

The Kia Optima now comes with 2 all-glass sunroofs – one for the front and one for the back – so everyone can enjoy the passing sights. The dashboard and control centre is angled 9 degrees towards the driver’s seat which gives the front passenger a bit more legroom.

As for the actual drive, the Kia Optima either comes in a 6-speed auto or a 6-speed manual and the manual features paddle shifters behind the steering wheel to ensure the gear changes in the 2.4 litre engine are kept as crisp as possible.

The new Kia Optima is more than just a new car. It’s the beginning of a design revolution. For more information drop in and see the award winning team at John Hughes in Victoria Park.
