As far as car design goes, Kia’s Optima sedan is somewhere in the middle between the newer generation and the old one. Its Tiger Nose grille and body contours are all angular looking, contrasting with the new Cee’d or Rio.
However, Kia’s engineers and designers are busy little bees and are constantly preparing revisions that are both cosmetic and dynamic. The third generation Optima sedan has been in production since 2010, when it made its debut at the 2010 New York Auto Show.

This facelift clearly features softer lines and elongated headlights with added LED accents for on the top. The section of the taillights that’s attached to the boot has changed indicating that the whole boot, together with the lower bumper are to be redesigned.

For a while now, an estate version and a coupe have been rumored as new additions to the K3 family, and this facelift would be the perfect time to launch them.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
