While we here in the US will be given the Kia Optima, the European market will be getting the new Kia Optima Sportswagon model which they showed off at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this month.
Based on the Sportspace Concept that Kia showed off last year, the new Kia Optima Sportswagon came in with a similar design. The interior also matches what we have seen on the sedan model.
Under the hood of the Kia Optima Sportswagon is a 2.0 liter four cylinder engine that will be pushing out about 161hp. Kia will also be offering a 1.7 liter CRDi four-cylinder engine that will be delivering about 139hp as well as a 2.0 liter four cylinder engine that will be delivering about 240hp.
It has been reported that Kia has no plan right now to bring the Kia Optima Sportswagon into the US. What a pity.
