Owner reviews

Today I decided to give heat on Mozhaika – excellent dynamics at speed. It takes up to 170 km / h without problems, but after that it is already clear that it is hard for her to accelerate. I also decided to check the acceleration to hundreds and here I realized that I would definitely chip my car.

The engine is very stifled, the Camry is noticeably better at accelerating to a hundred. I turned off all the systems completely, tried this and that, on the petals and without – it still rides for her passport seconds.

Alexander Polyakov, review of the 2020 Kia Optima GT

The car is well assembled, the materials are all very decent. The difference with the previous generation is felt immediately. In general, it is not much inferior to the Passat. There are two main complaints. First, the insulation. Not Mazda, of course, but leaves a lot to be desired. Considering that the Optima’s price is the lowest, this issue can be easily resolved. For 37,000 rubles and two days of waiting, the whole car began to rustle for me. The result is excellent!

Secondly, the quality of the “young dermantin” leather on the seats. I still have too short a tenure period for any jambs to appear, but the reviews on the profile forum are extremely negative.

Review of KIA Optima GT with automatic 2019 onwards

The first sensations from the controls are wonderful. The auto is responsive, the response is excellent for every turn of the steering wheel, it goes along the track like a tank: softly and smoothly. The motor is insanely high-torque, from the very bottom it makes it clear how many horses there are and what torque! The chassis is excellent, the racks work out all the irregularities, do not break through. Even on 18-inch wheels and low-profile tires, the feel is great.

Alexander, review of the new KIA Optima GT 2.0 (245 hp) with automatic transmission in 2019

There is really a lot of space in the cabin! For example, in the twelfth year Accord I could not sit down by myself (height 182 cm), but here even my knees do not reach the front seat. The seats are very comfortable, the lower part is long. Unlike the Japanese, here the legs do not “hang” in the air. This car is one of the few where my knee does not rest on the middle of the panel. Ergonomics on top. The back seat folds down – you can transport something long.

The sedan is based on the upgraded platform of the previous generation model, with McPherson struts at the front and independent suspension at the rear. The electric booster on the new Kia Optima GT 2020 is fixed directly to the rack housing, disc brakes in a circle (front brake discs with a diameter of 320 mm), Michelin Pilot Sport 3 tires measuring 235/45 R18.

As mentioned above, the model is driven by a two-liter turbo engine with a return of 245 “horses” (at 6,000 rpm), developing a peak torque of 350 Nm in the range from 1,400 to 4,000 rpm. Unfortunately, during measurements during test drives, the car cannot show the declared 7.4 seconds to hundreds, being a little slower.

But many auto journalists speak positively about the handling of the Optima GT, noting the gambling nature of the car. Also, the plus sign deserves the sports front seats, which hold well in corners, and some complaints are caused by the effectiveness of the brakes during active driving, poor noise insulation and the interior and multimedia system that seem a little outdated today.

The car has the following overall dimensions, mm

  • Length – 4 855
  • Width – 1860
  • Height – 1 485
  • Wheelbase – 2 805
  • Ground clearance (clearance) – 155

Interesting Facts

The Kia Optima model in question is the fourth generation, and the GT version with a turbo engine appeared in the line for the first time – there were no such cars on the Russian market before.

For the sedan, the GT Line equipment is offered, which, externally and internally, completely repeats the Optima GT, but comes with a more modest 2.4-liter aspirated engine with 188 forces, which saves 170,000 rubles.

Due to the stylish design, rich equipment and adequate price tags, the car is in good demand, but it is the most expensive version with a turbo engine that is bought a little – mostly by enthusiasts.
