2012 Kia OptimaMatthew S. - Richmond Hill, GA02/07/2016
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!
Sporty car with surprising economy!
2012 Kia OptimaJack McCormack - Melbourne, FL11/28/2015
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!
I loving my Kia .
2012 Kia OptimaJacqueline Davis - Edgewood, MD04/28/2016
Great car for the family. The drive and ride is very comfortable. I love how Kia Optima takes the road without any problems. The style of the car is awesome. Only thing I wish it had was a different radio system inside for the 2012. Who knows maybe one day I will buy a newer model later down the road. I will definitely recommend this car.
