Transmission: Automatic Color:Silver Interior Color: Gray Average Vehicle Review: (4.625 reviews) I would recommend this car a million and ONE times!!! As a young adult, this was my first car purchase and I don't regret it. When I first started car shopping, I was dead set on a Mazda 6. When I visited Car Max, the Mazda 6 was everything my heart desired. That was until I laid eyes on a real beauty. The Kia Optima SX, has that luxury car look with a kick that I was looking for. And the price was well within my range. I would recommend this car to anyone that is buying their first car.

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.

Great car

Good on gas

Sporty car with surprising economy!

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!
