Why Kia Optima Red Top is the best Kia model on the planet
- by admin
Kia has announced that the new Kia GX, which is being built in the U.S., will be the first model in the Kia lineup to get its new Optima Red Top design.
The new Kias top, which has a brushed aluminum finish and is now available for $49, is a more modern take on the Kias traditional Red Top, which features the Kiosk logo on the back.
The GX retails for $45, making it the cheapest Kia on the market, and comes in a number of colors and finishes.
The Red Top was also the first Kia to get an exterior body-colored trim.
Kia said it will be launching the GX in the United States on January 14, with an announcement expected soon thereafter.
The Kia also released an image showing the Gx in all its Red Top glory.
Top-of-the-line cars have long been a staple of Kia’s range, but its new Optima GX is the first of its kind to be available for the premium segment.
Optima was built to compete against the likes of the Tesla Model S, Mercedes-Benz S-Class and Cadillac ATS-V. It has an 8.1-liter V6 and a 6.2-liter turbocharged V8 engine that makes 300 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque.
The car has a starting price of $61,100.
Optima will be available in two trim levels: the base model ($61,200) and a Sport Plus package ($63,000).
The base model has a six-speed manual transmission, a front and rear LED daytime running lights, and Bluetooth wireless connectivity.
The Sport Plus gets a 6-speed automatic transmission and a front-facing parking sensor.
Kias premium Sport Plus comes in Black or Silver, while Kia Premium Sport Plus ($65,000) comes in Red.
As a sporty premium model, Optima gets a 5-speaker stereo audio system, along with adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning and adaptive cruise, and a heated front seat.
The GX comes with an 8-inch touchscreen display with navigation and a power-assist airbag system, which Kia says is designed to provide protection and safety.
Like the Optima models, the Optimal Red Top will come with a leather-wrapped steering wheel, which comes with Kia accessories, including a seat belt protector and a protective seatbelt clip.
Kia also introduced a version of the Optimas GX that includes a 3.5-liter, turbocharged, inline-six V6 that makes 385 horsepower and 390 pound-fres.
It is the same engine that powers the Kinsley and Kia Sport SUVs.
