Video: The New Kia Optima Has Become All-wheel Drive
Ki has released all the details about the K5 sedan for the global market. Outside of South Korea, the model is known as the Optima, but now the automaker intends to use only the index for designation everywhere. Previously, the brand's flagship sedan, renamed from Quoris to K900, followed this path.
For the first time in its history, the model received an optional all-wheel drive, and in the home market the K5 remains only front-wheel drive. Details about the new transmission have not yet been disclosed.
- There was information about the top version of the GT. She will receive a new petrol 2.5-liter turbo engine with a capacity of 290 hp. (422 Nm) with combined fuel injection and an eight-speed "robot" with two clutches. The K5 GT accelerates from zero to 100 km / h in 6.6 seconds.
- Less powerful versions of the sedan on the global market are offered with two-liter aspirated with two injectors per cylinder and a return of 152 hp. (192 Nm) or 160 hp. (196 Nm), with a 180-strong "turbo four" 1.6 (265 Nm) and a 2.5-liter naturally aspirated engine with 194 hp. (246 Nm). These engines are combined with a six- or eight-speed "automatic".
In the basic version, the KiK5 has an analog instrument cluster, audio system with a small monochrome screen and a standard gear lever. The most equipped sedans are equipped with a variety of electronic driver assistants, a 12.3-inch digital dashboard, a head-up display, multimedia with a 10.25-inch monitor and 12 Bose speakers, an automatic selector washer, interior background lighting, sliding curtains on the rear windows and many others.
Sales of the new generation KiK5 have already started in South Korea. Local taxi drivers are prohibited from buying the novelty: a special version of the previous generation model was left in production for them. In other countries, including Russia, the new sedan will appear during 2020.
