New and Used Kia Optima: Prices, Photos, Reviews, Specs
The Kia Optima is the automaker's popular mid-size sedan that squares off in an ultra-competitive class.
With the Optima, Kia competes against best sellers like the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, not to mention the Ford Fusion, Nissan Altima, Mazda 6, and Chevy Malibu, as well as its mechanical cousin, the Hyundai Sonata.

The newest Optima was introduced for the 2016 model year as a bona fide contender among mid-size sedans. For the 2019 year, automatic emergency braking is standard and the Optima's styling has been modestly updated, while Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid models are carried over nearly unchanged.
The new Kia Optima
A new Optima arrived for 2016. Styling for the new Optima is slightly less dramatic than before, while the car itself is slightly wider, with a touch of extra wheelbase length. The cabin is slightly restyled, and has much more in common with the related Hyundai Sonata than before.
The latest Kia Optima benefited from the dual-clutch automatic transmission offered in the Hyundai Sonata Eco model. Like the Sonata, the new Optima offers a 2.4-liter inline-4 as well as two turbo-4s, a 1.6-liter and 2.0-liter. Kia claims increased torsional rigidity and improved sound suppression.
On the infotainment end, the Optima offers both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility for its base 7.0-inch touchscreen or optional 8.0-inch touchscreen.
Today, the Optima shares an assembly plant in West Point, Georgia, with the Kia Sorento, though Optima Hybrid sedans are made in South Korea. A new S trim level joined the lineup for 2018. The following year, the Optima's styling was updated (squint and perhaps you'll see the differences), but the big and worthwhile change was its newly standard automatic emergency braking.
Kia Optima history
With the first-generation Optima, Kia reached beyond its usual crossover and hatchback offerings to take on the mainstream mid-size sedan market. From 2000 to 2005, Kia was still in its infancy in the U.S., and as a result, the Optima was substantially the same as the Hyundai Sonata, save for some cosmetic differences. It was offered with a 4-cylinder engine, and wore a small grille that differentiated it from the Sonata.
For the second generation, the 2005-2010 Kia Optima had styling that more distinctly separated it from its Hyundai cousin. In 2008 it received a revised look influenced by new design director Peter Schreyer, as well as updates to equipment including Bluetooth and satellite radio. It remained a compact to mid-size sedan, but in the second generation it added an optional V-6.
These models came with either a 175-horsepower, 2.4-liter inline-4 or a 194-hp, 2.7-liter V-6. The 4-cylinder returned better fuel economy, while the V-6 didn't offer much more power, so we did recommended the base engine. While this Optima wasn't a style leader, it did have a spacious interior and an airy feel, with good outward visibility. Safety ratings were good; front side airbags came standard, along with side-curtain airbags covering both rows, and active headrests for front-seat occupants.
The 2011 Kia Optima was new. The sedan was longer, wider and lower than before—and much more attractive, with some of our editors liking the Optima's look better than that of the Sonata.
The Optima shared the Sonata's powertrains, including a 200-hp, 2.4-liter direct-injection inline-4, a 274-hp, 2.0-liter turbo-4, and a new hybrid model. Fuel economy ratings for the base engine were as high as 35 mpg highway, and up to 40 mpg for the Hybrid. Though thrifty, the gas-electric model's behavior left it a tier below the more refined performance of Toyota and Ford hybrids.
The Optima's standard and optional features lists were stronger than for those of most other mid-size sedans in this price range. Bluetooth and a USB port were included even on base models, the mid-level EX trim offered dual-zone climate control and a smart-key system, and top options included Infinity audio, leather upholstery, and heated rear seats. A navigation system was available, as was UVO, an enhanced system for smartphone connectivity.
No major changes were made to the Optima for 2013, although late in the model year the Hybrid model saw some driveability updates and mileage improvements, with its EPA numbers now coming in at 35 mpg city, 39 highway. In 2014, the four-door was given a small revamp that included some aesthetic tweaks up front, upgrades to the infotainment offerings, and cross-traffic alerts as well as blind-spot monitoring.
The 2011-2013 Optima Hybrid was one of a group of cars that have been found to have overstated fuel-economy numbers. Kia initially submitted figures of 35 mpg city, 40 highway, 37 combined to the EPA, which allows automakers to self-certify fuel economy. On a confirmation check of several vehicles, the EPA found the Optima Hybrid's actual tested fuel economy to be 34/39/36 mpg. Owners can register with Kia to receive reimbursement for the gas consumed above and beyond expected levels; more details are found at KiaMPGInfo.com.
For 2015, the Optima received the latest version of Kia's UVO infotainment system.
Kia Optima 2019 | 4 Door Sedan | Kia Motors Malaysia
A bold shape. Appealing details. A delicate balance. Exciting technologies. And an extended wheelbase for remarkable stability and comfort. The roomy Kia Optima puts refinement into an irresistible package.
Side windows that gracefully stretch beyond the rear doors. A subtlely-shaped boot lid that acts as an aerodynamic spoiler. And a choice of sophisticated wheel designs. The Optima is a showstopper in the truest sense of the word.
An arching aerodynamic stance. Prominent rear lamps. Clean, sculpted lines. And handsome tailpipe options. Any way you look at it, the Kia Optima radiates luxury from any angle.
As modern life becomes increasingly filled with data and mobile devices, the Kia Optima’s interior is designed to set a new benchmark for the human-machine interface. The wraparound instrument panel presents you with all theinformation you need, while at the same time removing clutter and distraction everywhere you look.
The premium sport styling of the Optima cockpits keeps the virtuosity of the machinery under the bonnet top of mind. Contoured seats brace the driver and passengers through the turns. Rich colors and materials hint at an immersive, invigorating experience on the road. An exclusive sport steering wheel features paddle shifters for fingertip gear shifts, and red stitching around the cabin sets a drumbeat of anticipation from the moment the seatbelts are fastened.
The Kia Optima is packed with standard features while a wide selection of options allow you to make it your very own.
Select from four drive modes for 6-speed automatic - Comfort, Eco, Sport and Smart settings adjust shift points to fit your preferences for economy and performance.
From the first glance it's clear that the Optima GT is a different breed. Black high-gloss molding graces the sills below the doors. At the front, a dark gray meshed-type grille between expressively styled LED headlamps, and side intakes on the lower air dam heighten its sporty image. From behind, the exclusive 'GT' emblem announces that it's a serious performer.
The chassis of the Optima has been engineered for a smooth ride and responsive handling through the road’s twists and turns. Robust front wheel bearings and large dual rear lower control arms help further refine its ride and handling characteristics.
