Reviews and Ratings
Overall
Pros Cons
I have a heavy foot, & the kia optima is at its best driving fast Rear visibility. head room. no height adjustment on passenger seat.
Styling - both interior & exterior Gas mileage is not even close to what i had hoped for
Good mpg for a 274 hp engine Engine power - 4 cylinders; a little sluggish
Overall comfort for all occupants No spare tire! cost me $450 to get donut spare
Warranty, miles per gallon Visibility should be improved to combat blind spot
Interior/ exterior styling & trunk space Excessive road noise, especially water/slush!
Overall look-classy & sporty I shouldn't have to buy a special kia adapter to play my ipod
Interior comfort & technology; love the back up camera. Passenger seat's to low - needs pump like driver's seat
The seat moving back to let you out of car easier Not the fastest turbo / some lag
In comparison to the price , the performance & power are beyond expectations. I would like if it were all wheel drive
