Kia Opirus Sales Figures

Kia Opirus

The Kia Opirus, also known as the Kia Amanti in North America, was a full-size sedan produced by South Korean automaker Kia. Introduced in 2003 and produced until 2010, the Opirus aimed to compete in the executive sedan segment, offering a more luxurious and premium option within the Kia lineup. The Kia Opirus was withdrawn from the market in 2008 without a direct successor.

The Kia Opirus represented an ambitious move by Kia into the luxury sedan market. While it did provide a comfortable and feature-rich option at a competitive price, it faced challenges in competing with more established luxury brands. The Opirus was eventually discontinued, and Kia has since continued to evolve its brand image and product offerings, including in the premium segments of the market. The Opirus remains an interesting chapter in Kia’s history, reflecting the brand’s growth and ambition during that period.

The Opirus was powered by a 3.8-liter V6 engine that produced 266 horsepower and 253 lb-ft of torque. It was available with a manual transmission or an automatic transmission. The Opirus was a popular car among Kia buyers, thanks to its luxurious interior, comfortable ride, and stylish design. It was also a good value for money car. The Opirus was discontinued in 2011 after Kia decided to focus on its newer models, such as the Kia Cadenza and the Kia K900.
