Today in South Korea, Kia’s latest and greatest automotive achievement, the K5 (otherwise known as the Optima in the US) was released to the public. You may recall a few months back I blogged about the release of its bigger brother, the K7. The K5 however has a bit more edge to it and with the US versions having the option for a 2.4L supercharged engine that puts out 274 horsepower, the car can turn heads in a few ways. The car will also be relesed shortly into European markets under the name, Magnetis. Not sure about the price tag but i’d expect high 20’s without the supercharged goodies.
