With comfortable front seats, controlled steering and smooth handling, the driving experience is easy to pick up. The Optima is responsive and nimble, with great attention to detail for ride quality.

There are 4 trim levels of the Kia Optima: LX, EX, SX and SXL.

Powertrain & Engine

The 2016 Optima delivers fantastic fuel efficiency and a sporty design. The 2016 Kia Optima offers three engine options: 1.6L turbocharged four-cylinder engine with a 2.4L four-cylinder and a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder also available. 6-speed automatic transmission is standard on all models and trim levels. The vehicle is extremely fuel efficient, even on the most expensive and sporty engine. All vehicles come standard with front-wheel drive.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

The 2016 Kia Optima may have finally achieved iconic design. After its entry into the Optima's fourth generation, the 2016 Kia Optima has barely changed its modest visual design. It's slightly more spacious and comfortable than before. The cabin uses the space well to organize the seating for optimal legroom. New seat designs with longer, lower cushions for the front seat improve passenger and driver comfort as well.
