2012 Kia Optima SX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


I came to this 2012 Optima from a 2010 Mazdaspeed3. With a new son the Speed3 just wasn't doing it. This Optima is the real deal! The ride is smooth in my opinion and the handling is tight. The cabin looks great in the SX. I love the Infinity sound system, it sounds GREAT for a factory system. The iPod interface works great and the Nav. system is about as good as it gets. The panoramic sunroof is just plain cool. The heated and cooled front seats will come in real handy here in St. Louis. The backseats are almost as comfy as the front ones, back seats being heated is pretty sweet. The style of the exterior is awesome, slick lines, LED taillights, xenon headlights. This car ROCKS!

Best Features

Infinity Sound system, Nav. system, heated and cooled front seats, heated power folding side mirrors, heated back seats, panoramic sunroof, iPod interface, Sat. radio, wheels in premium touring package, trunk space is impressive, paddle shifters is cool, cooled glove box for drinks is neat, it goes on and on...

Worst Features

Cooled back seats too, different leather quality for the steering wheel, better quality on the sunglass holder. That's about it and they're all pretty small things.
