Kia have launched the all-new Sportage and all-new Optima at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
The all-new Kia Sportage makes it global debut, while the all-new Optima is being shown in European production specification for the very first time.
Lets start with the all-new Kia Sportage which is now entering its fourth-generation. It is fair to say the new Kia Sportage certainly looks good with an all-new exterior design and Kia have stated the Sportage will offer an innovative and sophisticated package to buyers.
Inside the new-look interior is made up of higher quality materials and a modern new design which serves as a much needed update over the last generation.
The Sportage will also offer a range of new and updated engines and transmissions which enhance efficiency and performance over the last generation.
To match and even better the success of the last generation Sportage, a new GT Line spec is available to add to the versatility of the range. The GT Line spec delivers a sportier experience to customers with visual and dynamic improvements on top of the already refined fourth generation Sportage.
The Kia Sportage is Kia’s best-selling model in Europe, accounting for more than a quarter of Kia’s European sales. The all-new Sportage will go on sale across Europe in early 2016.
Now onto the Kia Optima which is being shown for the first time in Europe at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
This is the car Kia aim to introduce the brand to an increasing number of new customers.
The all-new Optima builds on the worldwide success of the outgoing generation, offering a new, modern exterior and an improved interior design with increased space for passengers.
On top of the improvements inside and outside, the new Optima features greater refinement, an improved ride and handling.
The all-new Kia Optima will go on sale across Europe late 2015, with the range due to expand in future, with the addition a high performance GT version.
The Optima GT will be powered by a 2.0-litre T-GDI engine and the prototype model is said to be producing 241hp and 260lb-ft of torque.
Further technical details of the Optima GT will be announced closer to the car’s European launch.
