2011 Kia K5 - Kia Optima - Design
It features a much sleeker, sportier profile designed by new Kia design chief Peter Schreyer, following the new design language featured on the Kia Forte, Kia Sorento, and upcoming Kia Sportage and Kia Cadenza — and using Kia's new corporate grille, known as the Tiger Nose, also designed by Schreyer. Lead designer of the TF in the team of Peter Schreyer and Miklos Kovacs was the Italian Davide Limongelli.
2011 Kia K5 - Kia Optima - Features
As with its Hyundai Sonata sibling, the Optima's lineup has been replaced with a universal GDI 2.4 4-cylinder engine, either powered by a 6-speed automatic transmission with Eco dash display, or by a standard 6-speed manual transmission that is only standard on the LX model. Sales are slated to begin in Fall 2010. The new K5 came out on April 29, 2010 in the South Korean market.
The new Kia Optima retains its trim lines of the base LX, upscale EX, and sporty SX models.
2011 Kia K5 - Kia Optima - Equipment
Standard equipment include a slew of advanced safety features such as ESC and ABS brakes, as well as Sirius Satellite Radio, cooled glove box, iPod connectivity, and handsfree Bluetooth phone operation. EX models receive Kia's new UVO infotainment system by Microsoft with integrated backup camera, and Proximity Key with Push-Button Start. SX models add a rear spoiler, metal pedals, black hybrid metal and carbon insert trim, paddle shifters, and illuminated scuff plates.
A panoramic moonroof, heated front and rear seats, cooled front seats, heated steering wheel, and navigation system is also available.

A Hybrid model and Turbo model has been announced, and is predicted to arrive in early 2011.
