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


Kia has done an exceptional job with the 2012 Optima. I had a chance to test drive one and it was very surprising. I did enjoy driving it, however, all that horsepower is wasted b/c it's no fun driving a front wheel drive car. You cant drift and there is under-steer if you get on the gas too hard. Being front wheel drive is a major deal breaker for me. If they get smart and make a rear wheel drive or even an all-wheel drive model, I will buy one.

Best Features

exterior/interior design is awesome. Great power without sacrificing much MPG.

Worst Features

Make it rear wheel drive
