Kia have released a couple of teaser images of the all-new Optima that will premiere at the New York Auto Show on 1st April. Following its debut at the New York International Auto Show in 2010, the Kia Optima has become a catalyst for the brand’s tremendous growth around the globe. Now, five years later, Kia will return for the world debut of a passionately designed and obsessively crafted all-new version of its popular D-segment sedan.

Little else is known about the Optima at the moment, but expect further strides forward inside and plenty of tech on board. But a hybrid could feature, and we can expect something a bit sportier, too, as Michael Cole, CEO for Kia Motors Europe, told reporters at the Geneva motor show. “We get the new Optima this year,” Cole said. “Could we go to a wagon, and then from there a performance saloon? That would be a nice fit and product positioning for the Kia brand as part of our aspiration for the future.”
