2012 Kia Optima SX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
I have a black on black fully loaded 2012 SX. I paid $30k.
I have had about 3 months with 3500 miles on it( I don't drive it when there is snow, sand, etc. on the road)
Awesome exterior look, a real eye turner.
It looks like Audi BMW, but $20k less.
Performance-unbelievable - corners on rails, and there is no turbo lag.
Horrible actual( total miles/ gallons use)
fuel economy compared what is advertise 24/34.
I actual get about 24MPG ALL highway driving like a grandma. Fuel economy computer is not accurate.
Narrow bucket seats, slightly tight on my shoulders
Poor wheel well insulation. When driving on snow, gravel, sand, it very loud inside
Performance,features, and styling
Better actual fuel economy
Honest and realistic advertised fuel economy
Wider bucket seats
Better insulated wheel wells
