Description: Used 2016 Kia Optima EX for sale - $17,998, 35,396 miles with Premium Package, Leather Seats, Panoramic Sunroof, Parking Sensors, Rear View Camera, Navigation System
Transmission: Automatic Color:Black Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.643 reviews) Love the styling on this car! It looks like a sports sedan but has the economy to rival compact cars. The 2.4L engine has plenty of pickup when needed, but can still average 33-35mpg with mixed city/hwy driving. Great car for taller people too, myself (6' 2") and my brother (6' 7") fit easily in the front with plenty of space for rear passengers. Couldn't recommend this car more!

The only negative is the front passenger seat. What were they thinking? The seat does not adjust up and down; therefore, it sits on the ground. The passenger must be 7' to look over the dashboard!

Description: Used 2017 Kia Optima LX for sale - $14,998, 40,636 miles with Rear View Camera, Cruise Control, Auxiliary Audio Input, Alloy Wheels, Overhead Airbags, Traction Control
Transmission: Automatic Color:Black Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (5 reviews) This sx turbo optima is fast and fun to drive. Plenty of room for our 4 person family. The dash and high end interior attracted me to this sedan over others. It handles well with very response steering and a sporty feeling suspension. Not a good car if your looking for a very smooth ride. The low profile wheels look good but do little to smooth out bumps. But this car loves a stretch of smooth highway where you can step on the gas and it's going 90 in no time. Good sedan for the price range and gets good mpg!
