2016 Kia Optima to debut in Frankfurt - the new fourth-generation Kia Optima will arrive in Australia next year.

The significantly updated version of the mid-size Kia Optima is set to officially debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month.

The new fourth-generation Optima will sport a modern, new-look exterior that is larger in all directions – width, length and height, along with what Kia says is a bold interior design with more space for all occupants.

Set to start arriving in European Kia dealerships before the end of the year, the 2016 Kia Optima also picks up an array of new technologies including a new 8” touchscreen infotainment system and, while not yet confirmed for Australia, a wireless charging system for mobile devices.

Improved ride and handling is also promised and, for Europe at least, a choice of Euro-6 compliant petrol and diesel engines will be offered. A plug-in hybrid variant is also going to be offered in a number of markets next year.

Kia Motors Europe boss Michael Cole says the new 2016 Optima offers something fresh and different in the mid-size car market.

“The all-new Optima retains the unique personality of its predecessor, and improvements to every aspect of the car will make it an even more compelling proposition to buyers – private and fleet.”

“It truly offers motorists something fresh, in a segment that’s typically among the most conservative.”

Australian pricing and specification details for the 2016 Kia Optima are yet to be confirmed, we will keep you updated.
