Should I wait for the updated Optima?

Asked by Robert Ciavarella

My parents are looking at buying a Kia Optima GT, but the dealer told them that there is an updated model (MY17) coming out in November and that they should wait for that. I can't find any information regarding the updated model online and the dealer couldn't really tell them a whole lot about it either. As the current model already has an extensive list of features, is this updated model going to include any new features or design tweaks that will make it worth the wait?

From what we understand the MY17 update will have an upgraded interior, better LED headlights, and possibly an engine noise generator. Not much change it seems.
