Kia is proud to introduce the 2016 Kia Optima! Kia focused on challenging the midsize segment by making significant improvements to this model year. And why not!? This vehicle has been the top-selling Kia vehicle for three-consecutive years. Kia is preparing for more of the same success they have seen with past iterations of this model. Keep reading for more information.

The 2016 Kia Optima will ride on a chassis that Kia says is longer, wider and stiffer to improve ride and handling. They’ve also made the cabin more spacious for this model year. There will be three engine options which include a new 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder combined with a seven-speed Dual Clutch Transmission. The Kia Optima will be available in five trim levels:  the LX, LX 1.6T, EX, SX and SXL. Kia plans on continuing production of the Kia Optioma in the West Point, Georgia facility.

“The Optima changed the way people felt about the Kia brand, and KMA owes much of its growth and success to its head-turning design and sporty performance.  The all-new Optima encompasses everything the outgoing model did so well but does it better.  It has matured in all the right ways; from the European sport-sedan design to the premium materials to its improved ride and handling,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president, product planning KMA.  “The all-new Optima retains the signature personality of its predecessor, but we’ve literally improved everything; providing more space, better ergonomics, more technology and greater refinement.”
