2021 Kia Optima revealed in K5 form for South Korea

Less than a week after teaser drawings were released, the 2021 Kia Optima midsize sedan has been revealed in the form of the South Korean-market K5. The grille has a three-dimensional mesh that Kia says was inspired by the rough texture of shark skin. The greenhouse has a similar shape to that of the current car, with fastback rear pillars and tall rear quarter windows.
