A standout in the crowded midsize sedan segment, the 2014 Kia Optima touts a surprisingly sophisticated design, a smooth, quiet ride and able driving dynamics. It’s the best-selling Kia in the U.S.
For 2015, Optima gets a refresh, including redesigned front and rear ends and a new wheel design. Inside, the updated interior includes a redesigned instrument cluster with larger TFT display, a redesigned steering wheel, and additional standard and optional features.
Optima LX and Optima EX models use a 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder that makes 192 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque. This engine is short on excitement but fine for most drivers. Quiet at highway cruising speeds, it delivers enough power to keep up with fast traffic on the freeways. The 2014 Kia Optima rates an EPA-estimated 23/34 mpg City/Highway.
Optima EX includes dual-zone automatic climate control with rear vents, leather upholstery, an 8-way power adjustable driver’s seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, pushbutton start and auto-dimming rearview mirror with universal garage door opener. Standard wheels are 17-inch alloys.
