Overall Rating

4.4 out of 5 (33 reviews)

Love all the features and how the car performs

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.


  • Ride and Handling: It rides like a luxury car but handles like a sports car when needed
  • Power: Has the power of a V6 without the fuel costs.
  • Interior Space: Very roomy


  • Braking: Brakes a little harder than I'm used to.

- Shantell Howard, 2014 Kia Optima

great car

I bought my wife a KIA back in Feb of this year . 28 days later she was hit head on by another driver. The KIA took all the impact of the hit and wife walked away with just whiplash... I also know God had a help in this but the KIA is a great car to take the impact that it did was amazing . Thanks


  • Safety: how the car is built.

- kelly mounts, 2014 Kia Optima

Wonderful car good price But no 125 pt insp.

It is a very good reliable car gets very good gas mileage and I love driving it it's nice sporty yet seats five people. For a four-cylinder this Injun has a lot of power and push behind it when you're wanting to get on the highway it just gets up and goes no hesitation at all just like you're driving a V-8


  • Fuel Economy: Get 30 around town 42 highway
  • Power: Very good get up n got for a 4 cyl.
  • Styling: Love how the car looks overall. Very much like a more expensive car.


  • Cabin Noise: Lots of road noise when on a rough road.
  • Technology and Entertainment: Needs to com with navigation standard.
