  • Kia Optima.

    Anyone asked to pen an obituary for the outgoing Kia Optima would probably write something like "nice-looking car; shame about the CO2 emissions, refinement and trim quality". Which is pretty much what customers said, and a good starting point for Kia when getting down to work on the new one. But that's not all. For a while, Kia has been dragging its feet in the areas of connectivity and advanced driver assistance features. Both of those have also been addressed. And there will be greater choice, with sportier-looking GT-Line versions for the first time. The Optima's good looks have been further polished, and there's more passenger and cargo room thanks to a longer wheelbase, higher roof line and wider cockpit. For now, the UK line-up will again be diesel only, though a plug-in hybrid will be added in 2016. The diesel engine is a Euro-6 emissions compliant version of the 1.7-litre CRDi unit from the previous Optima, developing more power (139bhp instead of 134) and extra torque (251lb ft versus 240). Maximum torque arrives earlier in the rev band, too - at 1,750rpm rather than 2,000. Vitally, it also produces lower emissions - down by 14 per cent to 110g/km for the six-speed manual gearbox, and by a massive 27 per cent to 116g/km with the seven-speed twin-clutch automatic transmission, which replaces the former six-speed torque converter unit. That lowers the tax burden on company car users by three and eight bands respectively. And if that's not enough, Kia is promising greater refinement, a smoother ride and a more engaging drive. Those promises have largely been kept. It takes only a few hundred yards to appreciate the improved driveability of the revised engine (just follow the guidance of the gearshift indicator to see how much more driverfriendly it is) and its greater smoothness and more dulcet tones. With the new automatic gearbox, it's even better, and given that it raises benefit-in-kind tax by only one band over than the manual car, Kia can envisage a fair take-up. There's less wind noise (no gaps in the door seals any more, and better windscreen mountings), although the claimed improvements in road noise are surfacedependent. The same can be said for the ride, though the heavily revised suspension mostly does its job well. A relocated power steering pump makes the car a bit more adroit, too. The real joy for business users who might have to spend hours behind the wheel, however, will come from the plusher interior, more shapely seats (though the cushions might be just a bit too hard for some after a while) and more premium equipment options. A TomTom equipped navigation system with connected services will be standard, through a seven-inch screen with impressively clear graphics set at exactly the same height as the instruments. The pared-down switchgear is set lower in a horizontally orientated dash, and looks very BMW reminiscent. All versions of the Optima feature a reversing camera, dual-zone climate control, cruise control, speed limiter, power folding and heated mirrors, DAB digital radio and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as 17-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, tyre pressure monitors, and electric hand brake and hill start assist. Move up to level 3 and you get a larger eight-inch navigation screen, electric driver’s seat, heated front chairs, xenon headlights and 18-inch alloy wheels, as well as extra chrome for the exterior, half leather seats, an uprated instrument cluster, a Harmon Kardon premium sound system and LED front fog lights and rear tail light clusters. Right at the top-of-the-range, the new level 4 equipment level includes wireless mobile phone charging, a 360- degree camera system, automated parking, blind spot detection, rear cross traffic alert, a lane keeping assistant, as well as high beam assist, speed limit detection, autonomous emergency braking and adaptive cruise control. Leather upholstery is also included within the price tag, as well as ventilated front seats and heated rear outer chairs, and a panoramic glass sunroof. GT-Line versions will fall somewhere in the middle, with final specifications to be confirmed when it is launched later in 2016.
  • DS 4.

    Little more than a year after Citroen announced that it would be spinning off its DS cars into a separate luxury subbrand, the French firm has facelifted half of its line-up, with both the DS 4 and flagship DS 5 sporting the company’s new corporate nose treatment. The rest of the range, namely the DS 3 supermini and Cabrio, will get an update within weeks, adopting a similarly bold front end that will also see the end of the double chevrons adorning the car, as has been done with the DS 4 and DS 5. While the UK is the biggest single market for the DS 3, there’s still some work to be done on the rest of the range, but the newly formed firm is hoping that revisions to the DS 4, including a realignment of its market positioning will transform sales. DS Automobiles is looking to attract two different sets of buyers for the newly revised DS 4, with the regular DS 4 riding lower compared to before, while the new Crossback model is aimed at the crossover market thanks to its raised ride height of 30 millimetres, and more rugged, off-road inspired styling cues. At the car’s international launch a couple of months ago, we focused upon the DS 4 Crossback edition, but now with the first examples arriving in UK showrooms, we were able to spend time behind the wheel of the DS 4 Prestige, paired to the flagship 178bhp BlueHDi engine. One of the biggest criticisms of the outgoing DS 4 was its unyielding ride and we’re pleased to say that ride comfort has been transformed on the new car. Deep ruts and potholes are tackled with ease, and there’s no need to brace yourself like you needed to do with the old car. Steering feel is particularly agile with lots of feel, with the DS 4 asserting itself as being different from the humdrum hatchback segment. Through the bends there’s minimal body lean and a decent amount of grip, inspiring confidence in more challenging corners. While it doesn’t offer the same kind of driver satisfaction as Ford’s Focus, there’s reasonable agility and the experience is reassuringly safe and predictable. The engine is quiet and refined, only becoming heard when you really gun the right hand pedal, and while there’s a fair amount of road noise on noisier surfaces, wind noise isn’t intrusive. Away from the lights there’s decent pace, with smooth gearshifts from the six-speed automatic transmission. The brakes deliver good bite, though beware if you have anything larger than average sized feet, as the space in the foot well is at a premium. There’s very little room between the centre console and the clutch pedal on manual gearbox variants, and it’s all too easy to get your size tens stuck uncomfortably, and then there’s a mad scramble to get the clutch down in time for you to stop. It’s a good reason why you’re better off opting for the automatic variants in preference to the manual versions. Apart from revisions to the dashboard to incorporate a seven-inch touchscreen navigation system, and the first time that Apple CarPlay has been seen in a PSA Peugeot-Citroen-DS product, it’s business as usual. So that means a nicely appointed cabin with surfaces that are a cut above the norm in the medium car segment. The trademark DS watchstrap-inspired leather upholstery is on offer and looks sensational. There’s squidgy materials used for the dashboard, but disappointingly the door tops are hard plastic unless you opt for the uprated leather trim. The instruments where you can change the backlighting are a nice touch, and all of the controls are neatly positioned up high for ease of use. You’ll need to be a contortionist to use the USB socket, or have small hands, though, because it’s awkwardly positioned on the centre console. And that’s particularly disappointing as the use of Apple’s CarPlay depends on you being able to plug in your iPhone via the USB socket. The newly introduced touchscreen is easy to use and nicely positioned just within your field of vision. While it isn’t the most responsive system around, it’s certainly no better or worse than some rival systems. Our test car came equipped with the distinctive watchstrap upholstery and comfort and lateral support is simply excellent. It’s also easy to adjust the seats to gain a good position, though the steering wheel always feels like it is positioned too close. Space up front is pretty good, apart from the aforementioned pedal problems, while at the rear there’s surprisingly more space than you expect. Once installed in the back, knee and headroom is actually alright, though it can be a bit of challenge to get in and out. Those shapely styled rear doors come to a point, and if you’re not careful you could do someone a mischief. Space around the cabin for oddments is generally good, with a decent-sized tray in front of the gear lever and well-proportioned door pockets. While vision out of the front of the car is good, thick rear pillars and a shallow rear window make manoeuvring more of a challenge. It’s therefore pleasing that all DS 4s come with rear parking sensors for added reassurance. Boot space is well proportioned at 385 litres, though you’ll have to get over the high sill first. The optional Denon audio system restricts space a little, but the seats are easy to fold down with the pull of a lever. With the launch of the new DS 4, prices have increased a notch due to realignment of the model range. Where the previous DSign model offered an attractive entry price to DS 4 ownership, it wasn’t particularly well equipped, something you can’t level at all models of this latest DS 4 range. For instance, all versions come with DAB digital radio, a seven-inch touchscreen navigation system, dual-zone climate control, rear privacy glass, cruise control and automatic headlights and wipers.
  • ZZR 1400.

    Kawasaki have introduced two revised 2016 ZZR-1400 models featuring upgrades to ensure the machines keep their power and character, whilst complying with Euro 4 regulations. Utilising new settings in the ECU and a revised evaporative and exhaust system, the ZZR meets the latest Euro 4 emission regulations without any drop in the power figures of this 1,441-cc machine.
