Kia Magentis to make debut at the New York Auto Show

The US market may know it by another name – the Kia Optima – but in other parts of the world, it goes by its other tag, the Kia Magentis, and according to the folks over at Kia, it’s officially bound for the New York Motor Show.

In addition to announcing the venue for the 2011 Magentis’ world debut, teaser sketches of the new Magentis were released. The car, at least as far as we’re concerned, looks a lot sharper and more streamlined than it’s big brother – and fellow new release – the 2011 Cadenza.

According to Kia , the 2011 Magentis will be longer and wider than its predecessor and as a result, will carry a significant increase in cabin space.

Following its debut in New York in April, the Magentis is scheduled for a US release later this year – possibly around fall – and with a Europe release in the spring of 2011.

The car looks funny. I can’t imagine myself driving that one.

Well I don’t think that there would be any issues as it is not that much similar to one another Joe. Or maybe still I spoke to soon, the images are just drawings and are not the actual car so lets wait and see.

good thing that kia is not yet confronted by Honda due to the magentis and forte Koup front headlights and air intake’s similarities to Civic

I’m sorry for saying this but its that a TMT (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle) Model car. the designer run out of ideas and not only that you have not to much info about your car.

looks aggressive and sporty sedan, kia is really keeping up the phase with the big boys, they received a tons of award from the past few years.
