The Kia Optima is well-equipped and no matter your budget you'll get plenty of features

The Optima is available in five trims: LX, S, LX Turbo, EX, and SX. If general commuting is all you have in mind then you should be fine with the LX, S, or EX's 2.4L engine that has 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft torque and is paired with a 6-speed transmission. If you want a little aggression get the LX Turbo that has a 1.6L turbo engine. Horsepower dips to 178, but you get 195 lb-ft of torque.

The nice thing about the midsize segment is that most models usually have one engine that's got a lot of oomph. If you really want to take on the Westminster streets we suggest going all out for the top SX trim. It has a big 2.0L Turbo engine with 245 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. You'll also get a sport-tuned suspension to further enhance your ride.

Performance is important, but what do you get once you settle inside the Optima? Quite a lot and that's true even if you opt for the base trim. Standard highlights include a 7-inch touchscreen that can use Kia's UVO infotainment system or Apple CarPlay™/ Android Auto™. You'll also get a Drive Mode Select feature, a backup camera, and sound-insulating glass on the front doors, allowing you can tune out the road noise and enjoy the drive ahead.

The Optima also comes standard with a few impressive advanced safety technologies. Few things can hide in your blind-spot, thanks to the blind-spot detection. There's also a rear cross-traffic alert and a rear park assist to help protect your back bumpers. Those two features are very useful to have, especially if you're in the parking lot of one of Denver's busy malls.

This is just the beginning of what you can get when you buy or lease a Kia Optima. Check out the trims below and see which ones catch your eye.

Which Kia Optima trim is right for you?


We've already gone over the main features of the LX, but there's a few more details you should know about. Outside you'll get 16-inch alloy wheels, chrome door handles, and heated power-folding mirrors. Inside, there's cloth Cleantex seats, soft-touch materials, and both the driver and passenger can manually-adjust their seats 6-ways. However, the driver does get power lumbar support which is appreciated on long drives. This trim can also add on the LX Convenience Package.


The S trim adds on a few more creature comforts. Most of the seating is still cloth, but you'll have leatherette trim on the side bolsters. Genuine leather covers the steering wheel and shift knob. You'll have a full power-adjusting seat for the driver that can be manipulated 10-ways! On the outside, the S trim has a few exterior updates, such as LED front fog lights, a rear spoiler, and Sport front bumper with chrome accents for a bit of flair. The tires are also a touch bigger at 17-inches. This trim can also add on the S Panoramic Sunroof Package.

LX Turbo

As a reminder, the LX Turbo has more torque thanks to its 1.6L Turbo engine, and in place to the 6-speed you get a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. The tires go back to being 16-inches, but they have a cool gray finish. You still get the Cleantex cloth seats, but adjustability is the same as the S trim, and the leather-wrapped steering wheel still remains. There are no packages for this trim.


The EX goes back to having 17-inch wheels. You also get LED daytime running lights and LED combination taillights for strong visibility. Getting into your Optima is faster and easier now that you'll have a smart key with push button start. The smart key also works for the trunk! We also think you'll like the little touches, like the ambient mood lighting on the front doors and wood grain accent trim. However, the biggest change is the seating, and you'll now get full leather seats that can also be heated during the cooler months. The driver seat also gets a memory function and can be adjusted up to 12-ways and 4-ways for the lumbar. This trim can also add on the EX Premium and EX Technology Packages.


At the top of the lineup is the SX and its 2.0L Turbo engine. You'll get larger 18-inch wheels, a sport-tuned suspension, and larger front disc brakes. There's even dual projection LED front, rear, and fog lights and a panoramic sunroof. Inside there's a Supervision cluster that provides pertinent information, seats that can also be ventilated as well as heated, black gloss accents, and a leather-wrapped D-shaped steering wheel with perforated stitching. Power seating does go back to the 10-ways/2-ways, but you'll still be plenty comfortable. This trim can also add on the SX Limited and SX Technology Packages.
