New Kia Magentis: first details
Expect the new Kia Magentis to resemble
something like this!
22nd February, 2010
The next generation Kia Magentis (known as ‘Optima’
in some markets) will make its public premiere at the New York Motor Show, which opens on Friday
2nd April 2010. A fresh design from the ground up, Kia’s latest generation of its popular mid-size
sedan is completely transformed and embodies a bold, athletic and sporty visual energy.
Longer, lower and wider than the previous generation model, the new Magentis features a
significantly longer wheelbase and will offer more space for people and cargo.
The next generation Magentis/Optima will go on sale at Kia dealerships in the USA and in some
non-European markets from mid-2010, while sales in Europe will begin in late 2011.
The new Kia Magentis will arrive in Australia late this year.
Stay tuned to Next Car for additional details on this important new model as further
particulars become available. This new model will stretch the influence the highly successful
Korean brand has on the Australian market!
