Kia Motors is getting back up and running with an optimistic view of the auto market and already working towards new ventures with Kia and HMG producing purpose-built vehicles (PBVs). The most recent and surprising news from the overseas automaker is a declaration of new plans to fill out one of the car segments in its vast lineup of vehicles. Kia Motors may have seen a lot of great success with the Kia Telluride SUV and the Kia Seltos compact SUV, but despite that, sedans are still in the cards. Not surprising, this has sparked quite the internet debate.
We at Miami Lakes Automall Kia can’t throw our hat in the ring, but me personally, I say, “Yes.” Sedans are great. Unless the head of a family or always travelling with a group of people, a four-door five-seater is more than enough, and not many consumers use all that space anyway. Look around the next time you’re on the road and take note of how many people are in these five-to-seven passenger cars and how many of them actually have more than one or two people, driver included.
We can’t say we’re too surprised that the 2021 Kia Optima is getting a bit of a makeover. After the 2019 Kia Optima was released with little changes, the old sedan was starting to show its age. In an effort to bring it back to the forefront of the Kia Motors full compact car lineup, the next model year will show come with a few changes. After our comparison of the 2018 Kia Stinger and the 2018 Kia Optima, we’re curious how the two will match up in the 2020/2021 model year.
2020 Kia Optima Preview
Kia Motors has been talking a lot about its SUVs and crossovers ever since the 2020 Kia Telluride took center stage. Now is the perfect time for a makeover while no one’s looking at the sedans and coupes that are also a part of the Kia Motors lineup. Set for 2021, the new Kia Optima design will feature a new sporty front and rear fascia. Highlighting this look are slanted headlights inspired by the overseas Kia Ceed and a full-width LED taillight bar.
The overall design of the Optima has changed as well. It no longer looks like a sedan. If anything, judging by the picture above, it’s certainly starting to take on some sports car undertones. Kia Motors Designer Byungchul Juh has gone on record stating that the Kia Optima for 2020 is just the beginning for Kia Motors working towards a completely fresh design approach for future vehicles.
