: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Overview

Kia's entry in the hotly contested midsize sedan segment, the Optima is known for its adventuresome styling and comfort features. Like many of its competitors, the Optima is available with an abundance of upgrades that push it into near-luxury territory.

What's New for 2015

The available Uvo telematics system receives some updates. Last year's top SX Limited trim level is now known as SXL.

Choosing Your Kia Optima

The Optima starts out with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with 192 horsepower, about what you would expect for a base engine in this class. The available turbocharged 2-liter four-cylinder achieves 274 horsepower. Both engines use a six-speed automatic transmission.

The Optima is available in four trim levels:

Kia Optima

LX

Carries the four-cylinder engine, plus heated mirrors, Bluetooth phone and audio, fog lamps and a six-speaker sound system with satellite radio. The optional Convenience Plus package gets you a power driver seat, a rearview camera, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, the Uvo telematics system and laminated front door glass to reduce noise.

Kia Optima

EX

Comes standard with the power seat, laminated glass and auto-dimming mirror, then adds leather upholstery, 17-inch alloy wheels, keyless ignition and dual-zone automatic climate control. You get a massive boost in equipment with the Premium package, which include luxuries such as panoramic sunroof, heated and ventilated front seats with driver memory, a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats and an eight-speaker Infinity sound system. You can also add the Technology package with parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and a navigation system.

Kia Optima

SX

Gets the EX's equipment and options, plus performance upgrades such as 18-inch alloy wheels, a sport-tuned suspension, paddle shifters and selectable driving modes. The turbocharged engine is available.

Kia Optima

SXL

Bundles everything you can get on the lesser models (including the turbo), then adds specific wheels, upgraded trim throughout, an electronic parking brake and premium leather upholstery.

CarsDirect Tip

There are no individual factory options for the Optima. The trim level will dictate everything from engine to minor conveniences, so choose carefully.
