Looks nice, hope it has a bigger engine as well. *crosses fingers* here's to a 3.0L+ V6 engine! =P

Together with the Kia KOUP concept, Kia also displayed the refreshed Optima sedan at NY auto show.

2009 model year Optima will go on sale later this year, but you can already get pretty much all of the informations and lots of images about it.

Nice. According to the pic it looks like there are turn signal indicators on the side view mirrors. Nice addition.

Don't care for the barrel cluster guages though.
