My Kia Optima is just one of the best purchases I've ever made! Truly I never really thought of Kia as a competitor in the car industry let alone seeing myself own one. But I stand corrected truly Kia has surpassed all my expectations & some. Now offering the lastest technology, luxury packages, and design Kia is now a force to be reckoned with. Its stylish, dependable, great on gas & is very affordable and hassle free to maintain. Not to mention its spacious, with its large interior and trunk space it's truly almost the perfect cross between a sedan & small SUV. It's perfect for those who don't want that huge truck/SUV or minivan but also don't want those tiny sedans with no trunk space. Overall I am very pleased with my Kia Optima.
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!
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.
