This week, Kia took its new version Optima Sportswagon for the testing. This fourth generation model received a wagon for the first time. On the car spy photos Kia Optima Sportswagon 2017 that were taken by spies, it is still hard to specify a lot of features, as the automobile was completely camouflaged.
Though, some preview of the model, which will be out in the end of this year, can be done by the Sportspace concept, which was a very good-looking car.
According to the pictures, the new prototype will likely to have the 4 cylinder turbodiesel, due to the only exhaust tip. The other option of the engine is 2 liter turbocharged in the GT top-range version. The Sportswagon will also get more aggressive characteristics and dual tips of exhaust. There might be hybrid plug-in version as well, as in the variant of the KDM-spec presented in November last year.
The Sportswagon can be revealed to public at the soonest as on March, but the company can also wait until October, when the car exhibition in Paris will take place. Kia decided not to launch the model in the U.S. as it believes it won’t be able to compete with the Sportage.
