In case you have forgotten, we caught the prototype of the next-generation Kia Sorento about a month ago while it was practicing climbing up in the Swiss Alps. Regrettably, the three-row crossover was greatly camouflaged from the ground up, so we had no chance to learn too many details about the upgraded SUV at that time. Things are a bit various now because the 2021 Kia Sorento has been spied testing when again. This time, nevertheless, the revamped model was shot while going through testing at the Nurburgring track.
After the Hyundai Sonata received a significant revamp for the 2020 model year, next up is its Kia cousin, the Optima. While we were out and about in the Colorado Rockies, we occurred to find two prototypes rolling down Interstate 70 toward Denver. Based on earlier spy shots we've seen and the timing, we're dead particular these are examples of the 2021 Kia Optima in action. From the front, it certainly looks like this sedan gets a new headlight and grille treatment. Look at it in profile, and it's harder to tell the changes. Nevertheless, it seems the general silhouette is ever so slightly sleeker than the Optima we know today.
