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


My wife totalled her 300C and we looked at new cars for almost 8 months.
With the way the economy was I wanted fuel efficient but she wanted sporty and fun to drive.
Looked at all the different family cars out there and then drove the optima SX turbo.
The features that set the Optima apart was the very roomy back seat for the kids,
Great looks and fuel economy. We have around 8,000 miles on the vehicle and still love it.
No problems, No noises and she gets raving compliments everywhere she goes.
She drives mostly city with a little highway driving.
City mpg is about 19-21 but highway mpg is right on the button at 33.
I am 6'2" and have no problem with comfort, front or back.

Best Features

Plenty of room, great looks, fuel economy, nice interior, fun to drive

Worst Features

slushy transmission
