One of the most popular and successful Kia models over the years has been the Optima. The 2019 Kia Optima is here and better than ever. A stylish exterior, modern technology, solid performance, and high efficiency are all balled into an affordable sedan.
Innovation is familiar to Kia, and the 2019 Optima comes with some great technological breakthroughs. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto both come standard, along with a rear camera, blind spot monitoring, forward collision warning, and rear cross-traffic warning.
Sure, technology is great and it is often what makes the car. But what really matters to many drivers is what’s under the hood. Regardless of the trim level you go with, your Kia Optima will be a thrill to drive and it will be so at an efficient rate. The base LX model, as well as the S trim, come with a 185-horsepower, 2.4-liter inline-four-cylinder engine. This is the most efficient option as it averages up 35 highway mpg and 25 city mpg. Moving up to the EX trim will provide drivers with a more powerful, slightly larger I4 engine. This motor is 1.6 liters and is powered by 201 horses. Then we have the SX turbo engine. Those who opt for the highest trim level will be rewarded with a 245-horsepower, 2.0-liter I4 engine. Even with this additional power, the Optima SX averages up to 30 highway mpg and 21 city mpg.
