Slightly altered for 2013 (the EX turbo trim level is no longer offered), the Kia Optima is a mid-size sedan equipped with FWD and seating for five. The Optima is available with a standard 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 200 hp and 186 lb-ft of torque or an optional 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that yields 274 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are paired to the same 6-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission that enables the Optima to achieve fuel mileage within an EPA estimated range of 22 mpg city to 35 mpg highway. Features include 18-inch alloy wheels, sport-tuned suspension, HID headlights, rear camera display, navigation system, heated/cooled seats, leather trim, and interior carbon fiber accents. Safety is comprised of advanced airbags, vehicle stability management (VSM), electronic stability control (ESC), traction control system (TCS), brake assist system (BA), electronic brake-force distribution (EBD), and tire pressure monitoring (TPMS). The Optima is backed by a 5-year/60,000-mile warranty.
