The Kia Optima K5 is launched in Malaysia, selling at RM143,888 on the road. It gives other D-segment competitors a run for their money with its comprehensive list of equipment and bold styling.
No doubt that this Optima K5 is a head turner. Daytime LED running lights, HID auto levelling headlights, flush 18-inch alloys, rear lip spoiler and blacked three-piece panoramic roof (all as standard) make the Optima K5 looks grand at day, stylish at night.
Inside, paddle shift, leather seats, dual-zone air-conditioner and cruise control are standard equipments for the Optima K5. Other items include reverse camera integrated to the rear-view mirror, push-start button, 8-way electronic controlled driver seat with memory to mention a few.
In terms of safety, the Kia Optima offers 6 airbags, ABS, EBD, BA, TCS and hill-start assist. No close competitors of Optima’s offer side and curtain airbags and also hill-start assist as standard in the similar price range and engine displacement. Kudos to Kia for providing these extensive safety features.
