2015 Kia OptimaThomas Ringlein - Colorado Springs, CO11/23/2016
Automotive news came out with a report showing overall quality of new imported cars. And Kia scored higher than Honda and Toyota both. After a test drive, we were hooked. It drives real smooth, but still sporty on the twisty roads. And 36 MPG? Easy choice. Even the non Turbo 4-Cyl gets 180HP.
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!
My First Love
2012 Kia OptimaBriana Burroughs - Raleigh, NC07/01/2016
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.
