2015 Kia Optima LX

Location: CarMax Dulles in Dulles, Virginia 20165
Description: Used 2015 Kia Optima LX for sale - $13,998, 68,006 miles with Cruise Control, Auxiliary Audio Input, Alloy Wheels, Overhead Airbags, Traction Control, Side Airbags
Transmission: Automatic Color:Blue Interior Color: Gray Average Vehicle Review: (4.29 reviews) Love the car! Sporty looks, good power and handling and a reasonably comfortable ride. I was VERY uneasy about buying a Kia but after reading some online reviews from non-biased experts, I thought I'd give it a try. So far, I've not been disappointed. The only truly disappointing thing I have with the car is the sound system has an issue that causes it to cut out from time to time and the Bluetooth doesn't always connect to my phone. The dealer has confirmed the problem with the stereo, but I've not had time to get it in and leave it with them as they said they will need it for a couple days to pinpoint the problem (either the stereo or the amp).

2018 Kia Optima SX

$23,998* 12K Miles


CarMax Dulles In stock

Key Features
Limited Edition, Auto Cruise Control, Turbo Charged Engine, Leather Seats, Panoramic Sunroof, Harman Kardon Sound
Location: CarMax Dulles in Dulles, Virginia 20165
Description: Used 2018 Kia Optima SX for sale - $23,998, 11,372 miles with Limited Edition, Auto Cruise Control, Turbo Charged Engine, Leather Seats, Panoramic Sunroof, Harman Kardon Sound
Transmission: Automatic Color:Blue Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.8 reviews) This car is super smooth to drive and silent. The SX version comes loaded with a turbo engine and technically all the bells and whistles. Since it comes with leather seats the front ones can be individually heated/cooled and the rear one can be heated if needed. I've already drove it on 9 hour-long trips from Austin TX to Memphis TN and can't be happier with the performance, fuel efficiency, smooth drive and a great look that make people turn to see it. The only cons I personally have for this car are these features that I'd love to have in this car, however they were not a deal breaker: 1) It doesn't have the remote start feature. 2) The windshield wipers are not automatic. 3) It doesn't come with steering wheel heater/warmer.

Description: Used 2017 Kia Optima LX for sale - $14,998, 49,443 miles with Rear View Camera, Cruise Control, Auxiliary Audio Input, Alloy Wheels, Overhead Airbags, Traction Control
Transmission: Automatic Color:White Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (5 reviews) Parked next to my daughter-in-law's jaguar, I have to say the looks of my Optima are much better. I've gotten up to 43 mpg on the highway and the handling of the car has saved my life at least once. Running 70 mph on a dark highway, I had a deer jump out in front of me. I jerked the wheel to the left and the car lurched smoothly in that direction. Heading to the left guard rail I snatched it will back to the right, the car reacted instantly. Shifting the wheel back to the right lane the car responded smoothly and quickly. This is the most impressive car I've ever driven.

2010 - Present Kia Optima Trim Configurations

For the debut of the third-generation Kia Optima in 2010, the sedan saw a sleeker and sportier body style that buyers enjoyed.

This was also the first generation to see a hybrid trim offered starting with the 2011 model year.

Overall Rating

4.5 out of 5 (120 reviews)

Great car worth every penny.

Parked next to my daughter-in-law's jaguar, I have to say the looks of my Optima are much better. I've gotten up to 43 mpg on the highway and the handling of the car has saved my life at least once. Running 70 mph on a dark highway, I had a deer jump out in front of me. I jerked the wheel to the left and the car lurched smoothly in that direction. Heading to the left guard rail I snatched it will back to the right, the car reacted instantly. Shifting the wheel back to the right lane the car responded smoothly and quickly. This is the most impressive car I've ever driven.

Pros

  • Ride and Handling:
  • Safety:
  • Interior Space:

- William Carroll, 2013 Kia Optima

Super smooth ride for a fairly decent price

This car is super smooth to drive and silent. The SX version comes loaded with a turbo engine and technically all the bells and whistles. Since it comes with leather seats the front ones can be individually heated/cooled and the rear one can be heated if needed. I've already drove it on 9 hour-long trips from Austin TX to Memphis TN and can't be happier with the performance, fuel efficiency, smooth drive and a great look that make people turn to see it. The only cons I personally have for this car are these features that I'd love to have in this car, however they were not a deal breaker: 1) It doesn't have the remote start feature. 2) The windshield wipers are not automatic. 3) It doesn't come with steering wheel heater/warmer.

Pros

  • Cargo Space: Lots of room
  • Technology and Entertainment: All cool features included: GPS navigation, Bluetooth connection, Satellite radio, rear view camera, individual air conditioning controls for driver and passenger, panoramic roof
  • Cabin Noise: no noise at all

Cons

  • Styling: It could have remote start, automatic windshield wipers and steering wheel warmer

- Ricardo Leon, 2012 Kia Optima

Good, solid car at a reasonable price!

Love the car! Sporty looks, good power and handling and a reasonably comfortable ride. I was VERY uneasy about buying a Kia but after reading some online reviews from non-biased experts, I thought I'd give it a try. So far, I've not been disappointed. The only truly disappointing thing I have with the car is the sound system has an issue that causes it to cut out from time to time and the Bluetooth doesn't always connect to my phone. The dealer has confirmed the problem with the stereo, but I've not had time to get it in and leave it with them as they said they will need it for a couple days to pinpoint the problem (either the stereo or the amp).

Pros

  • Power: 274 HP in compact form...what's not to like about that!
  • Fuel Economy: I'm pleased with the fuel economy. While it's not "as advertised", I manage to get 30 MPG on the highway and about 24 around town.
  • Interior Space: Roomy car for its size...and I love the panoramic moon roof!

Cons

  • Cabin Noise: Lots of road noise, some say tires, others say "it's a Kia thing".
  • Seat Comfort: Not horrible so it's not really a "con", but they could be slightly more supportive. Love the heated and cooled feature!
  • Value: Seemingly holds its value well. We'll see at trade in time.

- Chuck N, 2012 Kia Optima
