2016 Kia Optima Lehighton PA
The best-selling Kia Optima sedan has been totally redesigned for 2016 with modern styling, a refined interior and improved ride. It brings elements of Kia’s luxury models to this more-affordable car, with an emphasis on soft-touch material and passenger comfort. The new design mimics European sport sedans, as do the high-end standard features. The theme of this car is to bring a premium driving experience to the masses. Standard is a 2.4-liter engine making 185 hp and 178 lb.-ft. of torque while getting 25 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway. The two available turbocharged engines can increase the performance AND the fuel economy.
The new Optima is longer, wider and stiffer than the old model. Not only does this improve handling, but it also improves passenger comfort by expanding the interior dimensions. Rear seat passengers will enjoy the extra leg room, and everyone can appreciate more head room and shoulder room. The trunk has grown by half a cubic foot as well, for more cargo capacity. Reducing noise, vibration and harshness was the top priority for Optima engineers, and the result is a much smoother and quieter ride.
The best-seller is all-new
The Optima has been completely redesigned this year to give it the looks of a European sport sedan, with the ride and handling characteristics to match. New engine and transmission options balance performance and fuel efficiency.
Roomier and more luxurious
By lengthening and widening the wheelbase, the Optima’s engineers were able to open up more room for all passengers to make themselves comfortable. New soft-touch materials and seat cushions enhance every drive.
A new touchscreen sound system incorporates CD, mp3, satellite radio and rear camera display into the dash. Available upgrades allow smartphone connectivity for apps like navigation, music and messaging.
