2015 Kia OptimaDenise Jefferson - Jacksonville, FL04/18/2016
The passenger front seat sits too low to the floor and it feels like your sitting on the floor, you can't hardly see through the window from being that low in the passenger seat. When filling up the tank with fuel in the car gas gushes out all over you on you shoes, clothes and hand. Kia dealers don't know how to fix it and keep giving us excuses what's wrong with the car but the really don't know. I would not recommend this car to my worst enemy.
2013 Kia OptimaAaron Black - Brownsburg, IN09/29/2015
Fuel mileage is good with the 4 cylinder, but it has decent power for a 2 ton car and doesnt feel underpowered in nearly all situations. Responsive handling, and nice extras like Bluetooth standard. Spacious interior even with all 5 seats filled. Smooth ride.
Love all the features and how the car performs
2014 Kia OptimaShantell Howard - Columbus, OH01/19/2016
This car is good on gas but also has the power when needed. Love all the options such as heated steering wheel and rear heated seats. The cooled seats are a bonus in the warmer weather also! I love that you can change between normal, eco and sport drive.
Kia Optima Overview
The Kia Optima stands out against its class thanks to its distinctive style, simple controls, and comfortable interior.
Kia Optima History
The Kia Optima was launched in 2001. Redesigned in 2006, the Optima received more powerful engines and kept the already feature-rich cabin. After being redesigned to have a more attractive exterior in 2011, the vehicle changed very little until its most recent redesign in 2016.
How It Drives
Performance-wise, the four-cylinder and the V6 engine are unremarkable, instead focusing on ensuring the vehicle is fuel efficient. Between the two, the four-cylinder engine is better-suited for fuel economy. The Kia Optima benefits from a very comfortable cabin.
Used Kia Optima Value
As a family-friendly mid-size sedan with an affordable price, the Kia Optima competes against the Ford Fusion, Nissan Altima, Mazda 6, Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, and Chevy Malibu.
Kia Optima Standard Features
The Kia Optima features either a 2.4L four-cylinder engine or a 2.7L V6 engine. As new features became available, Kia did a great job of integrating them into the Optima's cabin. The higher trim package features such as cruise control, remote entry, sunroof, and leather seat trims.
