It might be called the Kia K5 in South Korea but we all know it as the Kia Optima here. After all the teaser, we finally got to see how it will look like now.
We got to see some new teaser drawing last week and now Kia has officially taken the covers off the Kia K5 in South Korea. From what we can see, the design does match what was shown on the renderings including the aggressive exterior design.
In the front, the new K5 will be fitted with new grille with three dimensional mesh that is said to be inspired by the skin of the shark. There is also the chrome bars on the roof and in the back, a full-width taillight bar. As for the engine offering, it was suggested that we might see the same engine from the Hyundai Sonata.
While there is no word on when the Kia Optima would be announced, it should not be too far from the K5 announcement.
