Product Overview

Kia Optima / Magentis 2 facelift (code MG) is the facelifted version of the affordable mid-size sedan in production from 2008 to 2010. It was available with a range of inline-4 and V6 engines that displaced 2.0 to 2.7 liters.
While Kia did not update the powertrain to any significant amount (besides a small power bump), much effort was made to make the facelifted Gen2 Optima / Magentis appear more up-market: It became larger and more imposing as a result. A new 5-speed automatic also became available (which by this point was itself outdated by a decade).
