2014 Kia Optima Review

The 2014 Optima is giving the competition a run for their money! Under the hood lies a 200 or 274 horsepower 4-cylinder engine. Its High-performance dampers help deliver precise handling and a remarkably smooth ride. The 6-speed Sportmatic transmission provides a choice between traditional automatic-mode and manual sport-style shifting. Hands free simplicity comes in the form of Bluetooth wireless standard on every new Optima. The 6 speaker sound system or available 8 speaker Infinity audio system and USB/auxiliary input jacks combine to create an outstanding performance for the ears. You’ll be prepared for the unexpected with Optima’s safety systems including front seats featuring active headrests and seat-belt pretensioners with force limiters in addition to airbags managed by an advanced sensor system. The 2014 Kia Optima. Not your average Mid-Size Sedan.
