2016 Kia Optima: My Preferred Audio Controls
by Kelly Hellwig, Managing Editor on April 25, 2016
I've been shopping for a new personal car recently, and I've realized that the work advantage of driving nearly everything on the market does not necessarily make it easier when choosing a vehicle for your personal needs.
In other words, I want to build my own "hybrid" — Audi seats, BMW steering, Porsche brakes, maybe a Ferrari badge?
This evening I was again reminded of another addition to my list when I climbed behind the wheel of the 2016 Kia Optima. To me, the Optima's navigation and audio system controls are perfect.
There are wide, clearly marked buttons and large knobs exactly where they should be. Even first-time or occasional Optima drivers will have no trouble finding the radio or initiating the nav system, turning the volume down or the heat up.
Just plain simple. Doesn't get much better than that.
