Pleasant to the touch wheel is made in a fairly competent form – not big and not small. As they say, just right! It turns very easily, but at the same time it has excellent feedback and information. Adjustable in height and on the flight. On the steering wheel itself there are buttons for controlling the audio system, cruise and climate control, telephone and Bluetooth system. Front seats have a good and comfortable shape. Being in them, you can easily overcome many hundreds of kilometers without a break. The seats have excellent heating, which Russian drivers will especially appreciate in harsh winter. In addition, the driver’s seat also has ventilation and lumbar support setting. The instrument panel is a work of art from the same Peter Schreier. Tachometer, speedometer, fuel gauge are located separately from each other in three deep wells. In expensive versions of the sedan instead of arrows working system SuperVision, which emulates these scales and movement of the arrow. The central panel of the Kia Optima says that the owner in this car is the driver. It is under a slight degree to the left. This not only simplifies the management of auto systems, but also looks very impressive. It has a high-definition touch screen, which displays the readings of a parking camera or navigation system. Tuning the radio on the same screen. About music should be said separately – this is a real gift for music lovers. The Korean car uses the Infinity audio system, which provides the crystal clear sound of your favorite songs. In addition, Optima has special jacks for connecting a USB drive or any Apple device for playing music. Rear passengers will appreciate the vehicle’s wheelbase. It is not just spacious, but very spacious! Throwing your legs, there is still plenty of room to the front seats! In addition, the rear seat backrest easily transforms into an armrest with cup holders, which is especially appreciated on long journeys. By the way, going on a trip, you can not worry that there is not enough space in the trunk. Its volume is 505 liters! If you need to carry a long load, then, expanding the rear seat backrests, you can get a very large loading area.
Kia Optima pleases management in any situation. Fast and dynamic overclocking will delight in city driving. On the track the car confidently holds the road. Very pleased with the insulation – a pleasant sound of the motor is heard only at high revs, and in other cases in the car you can safely talk in a whisper. Despite its size (length – 4845 mm / width – 1830 mm / height – 1455 mm), it is easy to park a large sedan. Thanks to the intelligent parking system, the car will park itself where it considers it safe. In this case, all the movements he will perform without the participation of the driver.

In the domestic car dealerships luxury sedan can be purchased either with a two-liter petrol engine, 150 horsepower, or more powerful – 2.4 liters with 180 “horses” under the hood.
