The Kia Optima LX: a base model that excites

Looking for a midsize sedan that has a more exciting look than many of the competitors? Then stop into Grand Kia this week to check out our selection of 2018 Kia Optima models! We have plenty for you to choose from, especially the Kia LX base model.

Now, you're probably thinking a base model vehicle is a snooze-fest, but that certainly isn't the case with Kia's bases, especially the Optima. You'll still get a ton of great features and the best part is you don’t have to break the bank the drive away in one. Here's what you'll get on the Kia Optima LX.

Performance

The LX has a 2.4L engine that has 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft torque. With this engine you'll feel confident in the city, on the back roads, or passing on the highway. If you do want a little more performance, there is the LX Turbo trim that has a 1.6L Turbo engine with 178 horsepower and 195 lb-ft torque! We generally have a few of those on our lot.

Convenience Features

Even on the base model you'll get a standard 7-inch touchscreen. You can choose to use Kia's UVO infotainment platform or you can set up your eligible smartphone to use Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™.

Another feature we like is the sound-insulating acoustic glass. Road noise, especially at high speeds, can be annoying, and if you're someone who spends a lot of time behind the wheel then we know you don't want that distraction. With the sound-insulating front-door glass you can enjoy your ride in peace and near quiet.

Safety Technologies

The Optima comes well-equipped with many advanced safety features to help with crash avoidance. You'll get the following:

  • Blind-Spot Detection
  • Rear Park Assist
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert

There's also Bluetooth for hands-free calling/music streaming and a backup camera.

To see if the Kia Optima LX is the right midsize sedan for you — and we bet it will be — stop into our dealership this week for a test drive and discussion about monthly payment options for buying or leasing!
