Optima's winning ways continue

Kia's multi-award winning Optima has added another trophy to the cabinet with the announcement that the stunning mid-size sedan has been selected as Behind The Wheel's 2011 Car Of The Year.

The Optima beat out a field of five other top-line finalists _ it's Kia stablemate the Sportage compact SUV, BMW's 135i M Sport, the Holden Cruze turbo, the Ford Ranger and Jaguar's XJ luxury sedan _ with a combination of style, dynamics and value.
