The Kia Optima is a five-passenger, front-drive, mid-size sedan which places it squarely in the most competitive car class there is. The Optima is available in three trim levels; LX, EX, SX, SX Turbo and SXL Turbo. The LX, EX and SX are equipped with a naturally-aspirated 200-hp 2.4-liter DOHC four-cylinder.
The SX Turbo and SXL Turbo use a turbocharged 274-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder. A Sportmatic six-speed automatic is standard on all. A panoramic sunroof, aluminum wheels, power heated leather seating, dual-zone automatic climate control, navigation system and rear view camera are just some of the features available on the Optima. Standard safety features include active headrests, traction-control, stability-control, four-wheel antilock brakes and a tire pressure monitor.
The Optima is a carry-over model for 2015.
