Designed at Kia’s Frankfurt design studio, the Sportspace concept’s goal was to “provide stylish and exciting transportation for four which is also spacious and functional, without sacrificing the performance, sustainability and economy that Kia is known for.” With its signature tiger nose grille and simple, clean lines, the Sportspace concept’s overall design isn’t a huge departure from the current generation Optima.

“We set out to design a car that is a totally new breed of grand tourer – one for active people who need reasonable cargo space on the weekend, but don’t want to compromise moving around in style, comfort and with an element of sportiness,” explains Gregory Guillaume, Chief Designer Europe.

We’ll have to wait and see if the Sportspace concept means that Kia is looking at introducing an Optima wagon in Europe.
