Kia promises an all-new Optima with more interior room, premium materials and new tech features. The 2016 version of the sedan will debut on April 1 during the New York International Auto Show, and Kia just gave us our first look.
The current generation of the brand’s best-selling midsize sedan is striking in terms of exterior styling, and although the new model doesn’t look quite as sleek and sporty as the teaser illustrations, style is still an Optima hallmark for 2016. The sedan’s familiar grille gets a bolder look with a studded effect seen in the updated Sorento and Sedona models; it also wears larger bumper grilles and more chrome trim.
Check out the image above and stay tuned for more after the sedan makes its debut in New York next week.
