Kia Optima Estate (2018 - )

The Optima Sportswagon is a very convincing alternative in the family estate class. Granted, it’s not all that great to drive, but it has plenty of other stuff going for it. It looks great, it’s very spacious and practical, it’s very well equipped and it’s very affordable to buy and run. For a lot of buyers, that’ll be enough.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

Estate rivals like the Ford Mondeo and Volkswagen Passat both offer hybrid options that will score especially well with fleet drivers and save significant money in Benefit in Kind if that’s a factor in your decision making. And the lack of that in the Optima Sportswagon range will likely rule it out for those buyers. If you’re doing big miles or running it privately this may be less of a concern and here the Optima’s figures look reasonably competitive, at least for the diesels. The sole petrol option is powerful but pretty poor on emissions.
