2017 Kia Optima Sportwagon Review; Nice Improvement Interior – KIA has purchased European knowledge and manpower for its cars to our wishes. The New Kia Optima Sportwagon GT is the most dynamic Kia ever, and should show how far the brand has come.
The most important thing the Koreans do for years now, is listening. What do Europeans? There are now European design centres, European development centers and there is a test center at the Nordschleife to the Korean table bases at European level. In 2015 the German mount specialist Albert Biermann of BMW to Korea. This guy goes the Koreans learn the tricks of the trade.
The 2017 Kia Optima Sportwagon GT is a Kia as you never saw before. The station wagon looks smooth, sharp and thick, without being too much of a good thing. The Interior is miles away from the previous generation Optima Sportwagon. The materials look good, the ergonomics are fine. The new 2.0 turbo engine is a powerful block. The 245 HP make the car smoothly and the power is especially in the middle. The engine Miss quite a bit of character, the force is what just issued, with a big boost-feeling. He climbs not comfortable in the rows as similar engines of BMW or Audi.
2017 Kia Sportwagon Driving Experience
Are you going to drive, then you notice immediately that the mount on the hard side. Are you looking for the border on, then this leads to ‘ interesting ‘ handling. Send hard in, lift your gas and the butt of the station wagon comes out with the aggression of a Ford Focus ST Wagon. Understeer is through this balance to compensate, but you need to know that you are busy. Because it is a front wheel drive, you should all be fine dosing, but at least the car you very much when driving. And that is a great step for Kia. The GT has surprised us more than we had thought.
