Kia optimas turbo and 2017 Kia Optima review
- by admin
Kia’s latest offering from the Kia brand, the Optima, was introduced in 2016 and quickly became a household name.
But its turbocharged engine, its two turbochargers and its aggressive styling have since been replaced by more conventional models and it now takes up the mantle as the brand’s fastest selling model.
Kia’s Optima is powered by a new turbocharged 1.8-litre four-cylinder engine that is rated at 160kW and the turbocharger is rated for 160kWh.
The engine, however, was originally developed by the Japanese automaker’s own engine unit, but its development was halted by the Fukushima nuclear disaster.
Kia also made a big deal about how it could get its cars to 80km/h in just five seconds, but that was only a few hundredths of a second faster than the best Toyota Corolla.
This was an early example of a new technology that allowed Kia to get its vehicles to the top speeds with no mechanical assistance or assistance from the engine.
In addition to the engine, the new Kia has a 6.4-litres V6 and a 5.2-liters V8.
Its top speed is now 160km/hr.
Kias flagship vehicle, the Kias, was first launched in 2017 and it has been a popular choice for many in Australia, particularly those looking for the latest, most affordable, and most capable car in the Kiosport range.
Now, the company is looking to bring the new Optima into the mainstream with the release of the new 2017 Kias.
Both models are powered by an engine that produces a whopping 210kW at 0-60mph and a claimed 215km/hour top speed.
The 2017 Kiosports Optima will be offered with a range of exterior options including a rear spoiler, a wing, and an Alcantara top.
It will be powered by the Kiso 1.6-litel V6 engine and has a claimed 170kW powertrain.
All of the exterior styling will be done up in Alcantral black.
It will come with a six-speed manual gearbox, a rearview camera, a heated front fascia, and a seven-speaker audio system.
The new 2017 Optima comes in three colors: Black, Silver, and Pearl.
While there are no details available on pricing, the 2017 KIAS Optima may be a bargain.
