The 2012 Optima finished ahead of 12 other category winners to claim the Motoring TV award. “The 2012 Optima is a world-class vehicle encompassing a dynamic modern design, a driver-oriented award-winning interior, technology and top safety elements that have all contributed to make it a Car of the Year winner” stated William Lee, President and Chief Executive Officer of Kia Canada Inc.

"The Kia Optima can be all things to all potential customers. You have the regular sedan, the go faster model with its 274 turbo charged horsepower, and hybrid for those looking to do their bit for the planet,” said Brad Diamond of Motoring TV.

In addition, the Optima is a candidate for AJAC car of the year as it won both the “Best New Family Car Under $30,000", and the "Best New Family Car Over $30,000” categories at the fall test fest. We will know on Thursday if the Optima will claim AJAC car of the year.
