Kia is breaking new ground with the Optima Sportswagon, the South Korean manufacturer's first foray into the family estate car market. Thankfully it's as reliable and versatile as you would expect.
For a family estate the Optima Sportswagon is an undeniably striking and attractive car. In a class that can all too often place functionality above a pleasing aesthetic, the Optima Sportswagon is a refreshing new face. The Optima Sportswagon is directly descended from a Kia concept car and features a raised roofline and far sleeker window shapes than you would usually expect. The grille is also worthy of particular note, as although it adheres to the trademark Kia shape, it is studded with metallic elements that make it stand out from the very first glance.
As you would expect from a reliable brand such as Kia, the interior of the Optima Sportswagon features hard-wearing and durable plastics as well as soft upholstery. Depending on which trim option you choose, the Optima Sportswagon will come kitted out with an infotainment system that includes either a seven or eight-inch colour touchscreen. Apple CarPlay and Android are also included across the range, utilising the dashboard's USB socket to access your media with ease on the go.
The Kia Optima Sportswagon comes with a single choice of engine, although you can choose whether to have a seven-speed automatic or six-speed manual gearbox. The engine in question is a 1.7-litre CRDi ISGi diesel unit that can draw upon 139bhp to reach a top speed of 124mph. Fuel economy is a healthy 54.3mpg, whilst emissions stand at just 113g/km of CO2.
The Kia Optima Sportswagon boasts a five-star safety rating from the crash-safety experts at Euro NCAP, meaning that it is one of the safest cars on the roads for drivers, passengers and other road users. This is thanks to a full complement of airbags, which includes side and curtain airbags, as well as safety technology such as ABS, electronic stability control, hill-start assist control and intelligent stop and go, all of which come as standard.
