The first Kia Optima rolled out of the factory back in 2000. The years have been good to this midsize Kia sedan, and the Kia Optima is the best one yet. When you want a vehicle that makes it easy for you to get around town, the Kia Optima is perfect for you. It also gives you an impressive array of standard features to make driving more convenient, and the comfortable interior ensures that you'll enjoy the drive, no matter where the road takes you. There are four different trim levels of the Kia Optima: LX, S, EX, and SX. Each one brings different levels of comfort and capability, and each one is right for a different kind of driver.


Take a look under the hood of the standard Kia Optima, and you'll find a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. It produces 185 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque. You can also opt for the available turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, which puts out 178 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque. If neither of those sound particularly exciting to you, don't worry; we saved the best for last. There's also an available turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, which puts a whopping 245 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque at your disposal.
