The swoopy Kia Optima K5 has just undergone a facelift for the 2013 model year. For this blog post, I've compiled a set of before and after photos for the readers to make their own comparison. As the saying goes, 'a picture is worth a thousand words'.

The most obvious cosmetic update is done at the taillight combination. Personally, I prefer the current model's taillight as it is more sleek. The face lifted version reminds me of an Optima which did not have a good night sleep.

On the inside, the 2013 Optima gets a sportier steering wheel and a new gear stick.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.

In case if you are not sharp enough, that STEERING WHEEL (facelifted) looks like, if not, the same as the one in Gallardo. biggrin.gif
