Transmission: Automatic Color:Red Interior Color: Tan Average Vehicle Review: (4.543 reviews) It is one of many that have a well documented steering problem. It will NOT drive in a straight line - it drifts. It is not a "pull" but the driver must continually make "micro-adjustments" to keep the car in the lane. It is VERY annoying and physically tiring.

Transmission: Automatic Color:White Interior Color: Gray Average Vehicle Review: (4.543 reviews) I am very comfortable in this car. It is peppy, sleek and fun, I love the panoramic sunroof. The car will respond well when you need to accelerate. The cabin could be less noisy. Selection buttons were not made with a woman in mind and can be difficult to push.

Transmission: Automatic Color:White Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (4.543 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.

Generation Overview

The 2013 Kia Optima falls under this sedan's third generation (2011-2015), which was introduced with a revised turbocharged engine in place of the existing V6. Compared to the second-generation Optima, the third-generation model also features refreshed styling inside and out—plus more optional features such as heated and ventilated front seats on some models. 

By the 2013 model year specifically, the Optima had discontinued its existing EX Turbo trim, streamlining the model's trim offerings. 

2013 Kia Optima Engine Options

The 2013 Kia Optima LX and EX trims receive a 2.4L four-cylinder engine that's good for 200 hp; on the LX, a six-speed manual transmission is standard (although a six-speed automatic transmission was optional when the 2013 Optima was sold new). Meanwhile, every EX trim is outfitted with an automatic transmission. 

The 2013 Optima SE trim is outfitted with a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine at 274 hp, which is also paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. Every model is equipped with front-wheel drive. 

2013 Kia Optima Interior

With a 15.4-cubic-foot trunk and standard 60/40-split-folding rear seats, the 2013 Optima doesn't skimp on storage space. Most passengers (adults and children alike) will likely find that the cabin is roomy enough to sit comfortably, even on longer road trips. The 2013 Optima's trunk opening is also relatively short and wide, which makes loading and unloading cargo a little less strenuous.

Reviews for 2013 Kia Optima

Overall Rating

4.6 out of 5(131 reviews)

Don't buy without an extended test drive. Pay attention to the steering.

It is one of many that have a well documented steering problem. It will NOT drive in a straight line - it drifts. It is not a "pull" but the driver must continually make "micro-adjustments" to keep the car in the lane. It is VERY annoying and physically tiring.

- Terry, 2013 Kia Optima

Exteme power, Style and class

The power is fantastic and gets great gas mileage amd offers every possible option. The ride and comfort level is like being in a BMW or other high price luxury cars. Give optima a try and you will not be disappointed.

- William Macklin, 2013 Kia Optima

Excellent value

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.
