‘ 2014 Kia Optima ‘ Test Drive & Review – TheGetawayer

I spent two weeks with the Kia Optima, which has just been facelifted for 2014. A nice daily driver with tons of options for a small price … Deutscher Fahr…

Ladies & Gentlemen… Hell just froze over. Guido is in a Korean
automobile. (moment of silence)
The Optima is the best looking, affordable family car. A lot nicer than
Honda & Toyota’s offerings. I didn’t know it could cost up to $47,000 in
Germany, though. You can get a base C-Class in The States for $40,000ish. I
like the Optima, too. They’re releasing a much more expensive model some
time soon. Don’t recall the name of it. I’d like to see your focus on high
performance cars, along with some variety here & there. Sounds like a good
formula. Another top-notch review.

Very interesting review! I’ve never driven one of these but maybe it’s
worth checking out! I’m still just a little worried about the build
quality, my friend had a Kia Sorento rental car and the media interface
quit working after 1,000 miles, lol. Well done video though Guido!

tinydx95t2 says:

Guido it’s a great video and to be honest its a very nice change of pace to
see you in something very different is a nice change.

Steve W says:

Interestingly Kia does not offer a Diesel in the USA. The only ones doing
so are VW, Audi, Mercedes and Jeep with Mazda promising to but not doing
so! Diesel fuel in the USA is at least 20 % more costly than gasoline and
with the added cost of the Diesel engine it isn’t that economical here.

sub titles would be nice cant understand a word youre saying

Thank you for 15.000 Subs ! Here’s a new review: The 2014 Kia Optima

jeebus2121 says:

For non-Europeans: 7.2l/100km is about 32.7mpg. 

NuclearGrizzly says:

I had an Optima as a rental as was both surprised and impressed. It is
certainly a lot of car for the money. The one I rented had the 2.0 turbo
engine and was plenty fast. 

kevin n says:

I forgot to ask you Guido, you definitely should test drive a BMW i3 or the
new Porsche Macan 

Vacre7 says:

I regard this as a Porsche channel, but I am not surprised by the Kia. I
want to see more of your reviews, so review anything.

Poonzerker says:

Fantastic review! I purchased this car recently (the SXL – limited trim
w/turbo in the States) and LOVE every second I am behind the wheel. I was
so proud and pleased to hear your complimentary sentiment on it, as well.
Ausgezeichnet and 감사합니다!

Mico Araújo says:

That’s a very good looking car…I’m not seeing myself buying a KIA Optima,
but as a fleet car for a company? I might say that’s the best option on the
market right now. I would be a happy cat with a company car like that KIA
instead of a VW Passat or a Skoda Superb. That Optima is really well
equiped…Diesel car with leather interior, xenon headlights, daylight leds
and Infinity sound system for under 35k €? Please yes…
As for the cheaper car reviews, I think that is a good option for your
channel. There are plenty of good cars to review under 50k. I’d like to see
some pocket rockets reviews also…hehe!

Take care Guido!!

garytanaka says:

Kia will never replace a BMW but I enjoyed your review.

Raul Marincas says:

yes, i think that you should start reviewing some cheaper cars, but please
keep those spaceships too 

dyl bong says:

love this video mate do lower cost cars with hi spec good idea i just got
my self a a4 allroad due to you videos cheers mate

Nisar Nasar says:

Is there sun roof ??

sasajungic89 says:

It looks nice this new Optima. I’m surprised you liked it. I really didn’t
think you would. But from what I can tell it looks like a quality product.
Great review Guido :)

YouTerrorist says:

kia no thanks german cars only :)

kevin n says:

Hey Guido, in North America Kia’s aren’t available in a diesel. For about
35k Canadian it comes with a 2L turbo petrol with 274hp. 

ali pontiac says:

Welcome back, i will be so happy if you can test drive and review the
Corvette Stingray

MrRazvanel009 says:

the front of the car looks like skoda octavia III…imo

Ethan McCrory says:

Only shit, I just fell in love with that voice.

David Scotton says:

I liked this review. I like sports cars more, but the more videos you do
the better! Any chance of seeing you review a C7 Corvette?

Jorge Tamacas says:

I think you should make this kind of reviews. It´s not always about sport

martin shobnasky says:

wow where were you?nice vid

bcop1534 says:

could you review a vw golf 2.0 tdi

Danilo Drašković says:

In my country it costs 30k€ 🙂
But in any way I would really rather consider Mazda 6 over this, even
though I share your opinion.

epics7 says:

Good job. I did a search on this car, shortly after seeing one on the
streets. I was impressed with how the interior was laid out, but wanted to
get an honest review on this car. I’d love to see more reviews on the KIA
cars as well as the other Korean cars. 

Ranjith RAMAKRISHNAN says:

youre blown away by the car!! So am I! Kia man. it kinda replaces my dream
of owning a BMW. 

Yao Hong Luo says:

Amazing car to look at and drive in. Its a really sound product from Kia to
compete with some of the established names in this car segment. Had a test
drive recently and it totally surprised me. Interior quality, feel & design
was European and the ride was comfortable most of the time. The Optima we
drove came in the Nu 2.0 CVVL engine with 165ps and 20.0 kg.m, 100 km dash
quoted @ 10.6 secs on 18″ sport rims. Absolutely “The Power to surprise”.

derry jones says:

I like the kia to…. but only the top range models. They have made great
strides in improving there cars and info structure. Its on my short list of
cars I would buy. People think cars that sell in the us are not true
driver’s cars, but that’s totally wrong, our road trips last for days, and
after 8-10hrs of driving you will want a nice roomy cushy ride to. But we
dont get the desile in the us lucky germans…….. lol

RasKiddo says:

Thanks for the review man! excellent. Hoping to pick one up soon. Trying to
decide between auto and manual. i don’t know how much of a difference it
really makes in ‘the real world’ as opposed to the mpg stats provided by
