2016 Kia Optima

2016 Kia Optima

2015 New York Auto Show Kia unveiled  a redesigned version of its popular midsize sedan at the 2015 New York Auto Show. The 2016 Optima is slightly longer, taller and wider than its predecessor, which gives it marginally improved passenger and cargo room. Despite the all-new body, the overall look is a fairly subtle evolution of the existing Optima’s styling.

The debut of the 2014 Kia Forte Koup in New York marks the final new model in this compact car’s stable. Kia has performed a gradual rollout of the 2014 Forte, starting with the sedan’s launch at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show and following with the 5-door hatchback at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show.

Picture of Dorian Gray, Kia

The concept of picturing the Optima’s exterior on its dash reminds Chris of “The Picture of Dorian Gray.” Shown here is a still from the 1945 film.

I recently tested three versions of the 2012 Kia Optima, and I noticed in each one that the vehicle-information display, between the speedometer and tachometer, contains a little picture of the car. The image is always displayed and, curiously, varies with model: a profile view in one, a rear-three-quarter angle in another, a front aspect in the third.

Passport Dealerships

These Canada-only General Motors franchises lasted only a few short years.

For American car guys, Canada can seem like a very foreign place. Not only do our neighbors up north refer to American cheese as processed cheese, or more charitably as “mild cheddar,” they have a history of buying and selling cars that many of us Yankees have never heard of.
