Kia Optima interior

Inside, the new Optima is a more premium and high-quality place to sit than the old model, but still not up to the standards of rivals such as the VW Passat.

Style

Interior quality is good for a Kia, but not a match for the VW Passat's

There’s plenty of soft touch materials, piano black plastics and fake metal trim accents, and the general design is pleasing on the eye.

While I can't fault the build quality, the dated design is a bit of an eye sore

Infotainment

Interior quality is good for a Kia, but not a match for the VW Passat's

Carried over from the Sorento is the central display that measures seven inches in the entry level models rising to eight inches on top-spec cars. It’s fast, intuitive and has plenty of connected features such as live traffic updates for the standard TomTom sat-nav as well as Bluetooth music streaming.
