Peter Schreyer has indicated that he would love to do a wagon and coupe version of the Kia Magentis, also known as the Kia Optima here in Malaysia. The all-new Magentis has just been unveiled by Kia in sedan form. Typically, a D-segment vehicle such as the Magentis will usually be accompanied by a wagon body in Europe (like the Mazda 6, Euro Accord and Mondeo), as well as a two-door coupe bodystyle in North America such as the Honda Accord Coupe and the Toyota Camry Solara.

US is probably the only country in the world where large D-segment coupes in that segment (as in non luxury) work, and Schreyer agrees that a “Magentis Koup” would work in the US.
