The Kia Optima UK Price starts at 19,595 GBP and the car will only be available with one diesel engine in this part of the world, a 1.7-litre U2 turbodiesel rated at 134 bhp at 4,000 rpm and 325 Nm (239 lb-ft) of torque between 2.000 and 2,500 rpm.
Transmission choices include a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic, with the manual versions featuring the automaker's Intelligent Stop & Go and aerodynamic drag-reducing measures while the automatics have an Active ECO button that alters the operation of the engine's ECU and the compression of the climate control system in order to lower consumption by around 9 percent.
In the UK the new Kia Optima will be sold with the 1,2 and 3 trim grades, with the mid-range 2 version offering a choice between Luxe or Tech variants.
On the standard features list customers will find alloy wheels, air conditioning, LED daytime running lamps, a leather wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth with voice recognition and music streaming, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, electric windows and electric folding mirrors as well as cruise control and a speed limiter.
