My New Car Kia Opirus-Amanti
Opirus sedans were first shown at the 2003 Geneva Motor Show. The car got its name in honor of the ancient city of Ophir, famous as the center of trade in products made of gold and sandalwood. Opirus is distinguished by elegance and stylish design, rich interior decoration and belongs to the executive class. Kia Opirus was built on the largest Mitsubishi platform with a clear focus on the North American market. Pro-American Opirus sentiment is felt in everything. Even the layout itself - a five-meter sedan with front-wheel drive and a transverse V-shaped "six" - is not a European solution. By the way, in America, the car is sold under the name Kia Amanti.
The design of the car turned out pretty extraordinary. In the exterior of Opirus, several style elements are borrowed at once, borrowed from popular European models. Thus, the four headlamps quite reminiscent of the Mercedes E-Class, and a large grille of a peculiar shape gives the novelty a resemblance to the Lancia Thesis.
Kia Opirus boasts a spacious cabin where five passengers can comfortably accommodate. Inside the cabin, the feeling of composure is felt: the seats of light leather are soft and spacious, there is plenty of space above your head, and you do not have to bow to the upper edge of the opening when landing through the rear doors. A nice detail is the dandy metal door sills with the model name.
In the center of the front panel is a color display navigation system. Dashboard Opirus on the latest fashion - electronic. The control of the radio tape recorder and other auxiliary systems is duplicated by the buttons on the steering wheel. Claims to his driver’s workplace are difficult to present - everything is in place, buttons with intuitive symbols are where they are supposed to be - traditionally and soundly without special frills. The front seats and steering column of the car are electrically operated.
The seats are just as soft as they look; they are spacious, backs hug exactly so as not to hang around the bends. The dashboard with a very spectacular lighting - about turning the key in the depths of the dark "hollow" light up the white scales and rich red instrument arrows.
Sound insulation is such that the engine can be guessed only by the instruments. On the go, the feeling of a deaf estrangement from the surrounding world continues to persist: Koreans have worked conscientiously with the sealing of the cabin.
Kia Opirus is equipped with xenon headlights with an automatic adjustment system, a five-speed automatic transmission, a system of 8 airbags, an electronic stability system on the road ESP, an electronic control system for the ECS suspension, an IMS seat setting memory system, a rear and side curtain from the sun, an electronic speedometer with a special backlight and a great audio system from the company Infiniti.
Kia Opirus is equipped with two petrol engines V6, a working volume of 3 and 3.5 liters. (194 hp), which are combined with an automatic transmission, equipped with manual shift function. With a 3.5-liter engine, Kia Opirus can accelerate to 100 km / h in 9 seconds. Fuel consumption in the urban cycle will be 13 l / 100 km.
Kia Opirus is a great combination of high tech technologies and competes on an equal footing with the latest models of the European and Japanese manufacturers.
