With plenty of contenders in the mid-sized sedan arena, the Kia Optima certainly has its work cut out. It comes in four trim levels which include: LX, EX, SX and Limited. The standard and base trim has much to offer. Stock you’ll get 16” wheels, power accessories, six-speaker premium sound system, and Bluetooth connectivity. Upgrade to a better trim level and
enjoy features like power seats, auto-dimming mirrors, backup camera, larger wheels, an 8” touchscreen console with voice command, and automatic climate control with rear vents. Other add-ons include sports-tuned suspension and a beefier turbocharged engine, to name a few. The base engine is a four-cylinder that makes 192 horsepower with 181 pound-feet of torque, but can be upgraded to a 2-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine that gets 274 horsepower and 269
pound-feet of torque (recommended), with an estimated EPA combined mpg of 27. The standard 5-year/60,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty is the best in the business (only Hyundai offers as good a warranty), assuring that you won’t have to worry about anything going wrong with your new car for quite some time.
