2011 Kia Optima SX: Ride Quality

August 12, 2011


Considering that the Optima SX has firmer suspension tuning than the regular Optima, I'd say it still has a pretty agreeable ride quality. The ride quality isn't as soft as some other cars, but it's still comfortable and controlled on the freeway. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the SX for daily driver duty. Road noise does seem to be a bit more pronounced than the norm, however.
