It appears that almost overnight, Hyundai's little sister Kia has matured. Got smart, pretty and competitive. That inkling arrived with the recent Sportage SUV but will be hammered home early next year with the Optima mid-size sedan and then, in high winter, an all-new Rio and Picanto. For now, it's the Optima -- which is struc- turally based on the Hyundai i45 -- that is drawing attention. At its international launch in Dubai, Kia execs put on smiley faces and nodded while send- ing journalists into the wind-swept desert with nothing but paper route maps and cautious expressions. The experience was, as expected, as relaxed as an Avon gondola ride. Further, it showed that Kia had quietly built a mid-size car that can take on Camry in space, lure people away from Accord on style and poss- ibly match Mazda6 on quality. The test cars were, unfortunately, not the cars bound for New Zea- land. We'll get a proper 2.4-litre four with direct petrol injection (Kia calls it gasoline direct injec- tion or GDI) which pushes out more power than the 2.4 MPI engines served up in a wintry' 37 degrees Celsius Dubai day. The GDI has 147kW/ 250Nm compared with the MPI's weedier 132kW/231Nm. We will also get a six- speed auto -- likely with paddle shifters -- and a revised suspension. The suspension news is all good. The cars in Dubai were supple and comfortable but in sid- ewinds designed to obscure the road with sand, were a bit floaty.
