Kia Estate Car

The newly-named Optima Sportswagon is coming out soon and if you’re a fan of Estate cars, then we think you’ll like this one for sure. Only a few of the Concept’s little details remain, but the basic form remains mostly the same as the concept which was released last year. We’d say it’s comfortably better-looking than, say, a Vauxhall Insignia wagon, complete with its 242bhp 2.0-litre turbo four, twin exhausts and biggish wheels.

What is Kia’s first go at an estate of this size will be offered with a choice of three engines when it goes on sale in the last quarter of this year. There’s a likely quite economical 1.7-litre diesel and a naturally aspirated 2.0-litre petrol, plus the auto-only turbo of the GT. Speed tests haven’t come out yet, but don’t expect anything too spectacular.
