After releasing a number of teasers, Kia Motors has revealed the all-new generation K5 sedan or the Optima for its home market - South Korea. The 2021 Kia Optima midsize shares its underpinnings with the Hyundai Sonata but gets a radical new design language that will set the tone for future cars from the manufacturer. The sedan sports the imposing new 'Tiger Nose Evolution' design language that adds the wide, three-dimensional design which integrates the grille and headlamps more organically than the previous generation model. The grille's texture has been modelled after a shark skin, while the headlamps feature a 'heartbeat' signature LED daytime running lights.
