Although the current Optima has been around for only 3 years, the Korean carmaker still decided to introduce the Kia Optima 2018 facelift in its home market under the name of Kia K5. With this update, global markets also expect to welcome the refreshed Optima soon.
Kia Optima 2018 is expected to have some changes internationally
In general, the all-new Optima owns a snazzy appearance. Up front is a redesigned version of the bumper along with a reworked lower apron. Moreover, the 2018 model comes with the rebuilt triple fog-lights and the air intake vents which are placed lower than its ancestor. Furthermore, the current car’s slim grille is tweaked with vertical slats.
Moving on to the rear, the Kia Optima 2018 is equipped with a newly designed bumper involving red reflectors next to the trunk and a new diffuser. The car taillights have no chance, while the graphics inside has been revised remarkably. Besides, the said car comes with a new set of wheels that completes the car exterior makeover.

In addition, the Optima 2018 is available with the highway assist along with autonomous cruise control and a surround view camera system.

The new Kia Optima also features the same engine options as the current model which involve a 1.6L, 2.0L and 1.7L turbo diesel engine. As Philkotse mentioned before, it’s now not sure which engine would be equipped locally.
