Hello style. Hello get-up-and-go. The Kia Optima is a sleek fusion of bold design and heart-pounding performance with more than a dash of trailblazing technology. This is the next generation Optima and a Kelley Blue Book Best Buy. And because it’s a Kia it comes with an industry-leading warranty. Choose from 5 models. The LX up through the SX Limited. No matter which trim you choose you’ll be surprised by the power and fuel efficiency built into every Optima engine all the way up to the 2-liter turbo. Each one turns fuel into adrenaline. Inside you’ll find a bold driver centric design and technology that make driving a pleasure. Amenities like UVO eServices to keep you connected and a host of the most advances driver aid technologies. The Optima is available in a variety of exterior and interior options to suit any taste so make it yours. The Kia Optima--revolutionizing conventional thinking about midsize sedans.
The new Optima’s interior features a cleaner driver centric design for a greater sense of space. You’ll find premium seats and a higher level of comfort. Stay connected with UVO’s advanced voice-recognition technology. Command the in-dash system with just your voice.

Protection for all all around. Earning a 5-star Crash Safety Rating from the NHTSA Optima comes standard with advanced passive safety features like comprehensive airbags and seat-belt systems. It also has on-board advanced safety technologies that work automatically so you can stay focused on the road.
With the LX 1.6T trim you’ll get a new 1.6 liter Turbocharged engine with 7 speed Dual-Clutch Transmission pumping out 178 horsepower. Looking for power with improved fuel economy? The SX and SX Limited trims offer the re-tuned 2 liter Turbo delivering 245 horsepower. And the Optima sips gas with the LX delivering an EPA estimated 25 city and 36 highway miles per gallon. While the SX comes in at 22 city and 31 highway. Just one more reason to rethink the midsize sedan.
