New York auto show: 5 redesigned sedans
2014 Kia Optima
With redesigned front and rear ends, the 2014 Kia Optima was unveiled at the 2013 New York International Auto Show. The mid-size sedan, which is built at Kia's West Point, Ga., facility, features a European-inspired design with front light-emitting diode positioning and fog lights as well as new rear LED lights.
Inside, the seats have been redesigned for increased comfort and there are more upscale amenities, including push-button start, a 4.3-inch liquid crystal display instrument cluster as well as optional blind-spot detection system and navigation.
On sale in fall 2013, the 2014 Kia Optima will be available with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, a 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder or a 2.4-liter hybrid powertrain. Standard features on all Optima models include solar glass, heated side mirrors with built-in turn signals, dual exhaust with chrome tips and new 16-inch alloy wheels.
