2015 Kia Optima Sedan
Benefits of Driving a 2015 Kia Optima Sedan
Compared to other mid-size sedans, the Kia Optima stands out in many ways. Showcasing Kia's more Euro-influenced design direction, the Optima's styling is much more edgy than that of most other mid-size sedans. The Optima's design is functional, too, and quite roomy on the inside. The Optima is also one of the most fuel-efficient mid-size sedans, offering strong mileage in addition to its sporty performance. The turbocharged engine in the SX-Turbo and Limited trims provides the power and acceleration of a V6 but the gas mileage of a four.
What's new for 2015?
Following a thorough refresh last year the Kia Optima hits 2015 with only minor changes. Among them, the UVO infotainment system has been upgraded, cruise control placement is more ergonomically friendly, and an acoustic laminated windshield is standard.
