Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.
You can interpret our ratings in the following way:
5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.
4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.
3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.
2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.
1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.
Kia’s roomy midsize sedan:
Kia’s Optima remains a strong seller in a competitive, yet declining segment. Dealer inventories include models dressed in the LX trim; these are found in significant numbers. This means you’ll have a more difficult time finding the SX and SX-L grades.
The 2019s are still available. Most of the changes are minor and typically depend on the chosen trim. As for the 2020s, they're arriving on dealer lots.
Kia’s current offers are in place through October 31, 2019. The examples we're using are for California.
Big cash savings again this month:
This month, Kia is offering $3,000 in customer cash on the 2019 Optima L. Choose any other trim and the customer cash tops out at $4,000. These are outstanding offers, which lower your final cost accordingly.
As for the 2020s, Kia is offering $2,000 customer cash on the Optima L and $2,500 on all other trims.
Excellent financing offers:
Purchase a 2019 Kia Optima and you can finance one for 0.0-percent APR for 75 months. This is an outstanding offer!
As for the 2020s, you'll find 0.0-percent APR financing for 60 months, 0.9-percent APR financing for 66 months, and 1.9-percent APR financing for 72 months.
Keep in mind you can't combine customer cash with promotional financing.
Kia Optima leases for the taking:
Choose a 2019 Optima LX and you can lease one for $189 per month for 36 months, with $2,999 due at signing. This is a very good offer for a roomy, five-passenger sedan as the monthly cost of ownership is just $272.
Opt for a 2020 Optima LX and you can lease one for $209 per month for 36 months, with $2,999 due at signing. This is a very good offer for a roomy, five-passenger sedan as the monthly cost of ownership is just $292.
If you prefer a 2020 Optima Hybrid, you can lease one for $279 per month for 36 months, with $2,999 due at signing. Your effective monthly cost of ownership is $362. Opt for the plug-in hybrid and your cost is $319 per month for 36 months, with $2,999 due at signing. Your monthly cost here is $402.
Kia provides a mileage allowance of 12,000 miles per year. At the end of the lease term, you’ll pay a $400 termination fee.
This ranks as an excellent deal based on our expert analysis of: vehicle price, length of lease term, amount due at signing, monthly payment, etc.
