The New Kia Optima is a Midsize Sedan That Covers All the Bases

When the time comes to revisit the notion of buying a new car, you will undoubtedly be confronted by a number of options to choose from.  Focusing on midsize sedans narrows the search a bit, but there are still plenty of vehicles to choose from to get you around Baltimore.  The new Kia Optima presents itself as a great car for drivers with the inclusion of smart design and impressive features.  You have come to the right place to learn what the Optima has to offer Fallston drivers.

Power and Performance

You will find that there are two standard engine options for the new Kia Optima.  The first is a 2.0L turbo engine found in the SX trim of the Optima.  It delivers 245 horsepower and provides paddle shifters located on the steering wheel for a more personalized driving experience.  The EX trim includes a 1.6L turbocharged engine coupled with a dual-clutch transmission.  With a focus on striking a balance between power and efficiency, this engine delivers a combined 31 MPG.

If you prefer to drive a vehicle based on hybrid technology, then rest easy because there is a new Kia Optima option for you as well.  The standard Optima Hybrid effectively combines an electric motor and a 2.0L GDI 4 cylinder gas engine.  The plug-in hybrid powered Optima provides drivers with a greater range of independence.  When switched into EV mode, operations are all-electric.


Once inside the Kia Optima, you will find an environment built for comfort.  The cabin is both spacious and quiet for your Bel Air, MD excursions.  The driver side console, for instance, has been modified and streamlined ergonomically to enhance the sense of more space.  There is a heated option available for both front and rear seats for better comfort during those chilly Lutherville winters.  The front seats, additionally, have the available option of also being ventilated.  If you appreciate the feel and texture of leather, it is available for the Optima SX.


The exterior stylings of the new Optima are sure to catch the eye.  At the front of this modern sedan, you will find a signature grille.  When coupled with available LED headlights and 18-inch gloss black wheels, the Optima makes for a strikingly stylish and well- illuminated vehicle to all who witness its approach.  To round out the exterior of the Optima, drivers have the option to include available gloss black side sills, mirrors and rear spoiler that will make you stand out on the streets of Parkville, MD.


As is the case with any modern vehicle, technology features play a large role in the positive experience of driving.  The new Kia Optima includes the things that drivers can appreciate and use.  This includes compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to add convenient access to text messages, calls, and a number of other apps.  Speaking of phones, the Optima includes 4 USB ports and 3 12V outlets to address power and connection needs.  For audiophiles, Harmon Kardon QuantumLogic technology with Clari-Fi is available.  When installed, 650 watts of power pumps through 10 speakers to deliver 7.1 channel surround sound goodness.

Another technological benefit found in the new Optima is Smart Welcome.  With this available feature equipped, exterior mirrors unfold and the door pockets light up when Smart Welcome system detects driver's Smart Key.


The new Kia Optima's approach to safety is both practical and technological.  The use of Advanced High Strength Steel and hot stamped components in a number of key stress areas has improved the safety of the Optima's structure.  The Traction Control System and Hill Start Assist Control aid in maintaining better control while the Brake Assist System and Electric-brake Force Distribution system ensure that braking is consistent and appropriate for every situation.

The Kia Optima also has available driver-assisted technology-based features designed to make driving safer.  These include systems that assist with blind spot detection, forward collision warnings, lane keeping assists, and smart cruise control.  When it's time to park, there is a system available to aid with that as well.
