Kia Optima Overview

The Kia Optima stands out against its class thanks to its distinctive style, simple controls, and comfortable interior.

Kia Optima History

The Kia Optima was launched in 2001. Redesigned in 2006, the Optima received more powerful engines and kept the already feature-rich cabin. After being redesigned to have a more attractive exterior in 2011, the vehicle changed very little until its most recent redesign in 2016.

How It Drives

Performance-wise, the four-cylinder and the V6 engine are unremarkable, instead focusing on ensuring the vehicle is fuel efficient. Between the two, the four-cylinder engine is better-suited for fuel economy. The Kia Optima benefits from a very comfortable cabin.

Used Kia Optima Value

As a family-friendly mid-size sedan with an affordable price, the Kia Optima competes against the Ford Fusion, Nissan Altima, Mazda 6, Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, and Chevy Malibu.

Kia Optima Standard Features

The Kia Optima features either a 2.4L four-cylinder engine or a 2.7L V6 engine. As new features became available, Kia did a great job of integrating them into the Optima's cabin. The higher trim package features such as cruise control, remote entry, sunroof, and leather seat trims.
