Kia has announced plans to offer the Optima in a new body style.

The company declined to elaborate but hinted the model will be inspired by the SportSpace concept which debuted at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year.

The news seems to suggest the company will offer an Optima wagon but it is interesting to note that Kia Motors America vice president of product planning, Orth Hendricks, previously said the company had considered an Optima wagon but decided against it because the model would overlap with the Sorento and wouldn't attract enough buyers to justify the production costs.
