Make: Kia

Model: Optima

Released: Jan 2014

Kia’s mid-size Optima gets a minor mid-life update in late 2013 but any cosmetic changes are hard to pick. Cabin styling updates and the addition of more infotainment and active safety options will keep the handsome sedan going for a few more years, while the possibility of a 204kW 2.0-litre turbo engine should keep Kia fans excited.

Make: Mazda

Model: Mazda3

Released: Jan 2014

It may have lost its local sales crown to the Toyota Corolla in 2013, but the Mazda3 will be in fight-back mode when it arrives in January. More refined than the model it replaces, the 2014 Mazda3 features a completely new exterior and interior design based on the Kodo design language, SkyActiv drivetrains and suspension that is tuned for local conditions.
