2016 Kia Optima: Storage Opportunities

by Brent Romans, Senior Automotive Editor on March 30, 2016

2016 Kia Optima

I like the available interior storage in our 2016 Kia Optima. There are a couple cupholders and a few bins to work with. The setup isn't flashy, but I've found it to be pretty handy for my personal effects.

The forward storage bin, which has a sliding lid, contains two power ports plus a USB interface and auxiliary audio input. If you close the lid, the bin is big enough to hold a typical cell phone and keep it out of sight.

Or you can load up the other accessory bins. I've found the bin behind the gear shift lever works well for holding the key fob and/or your keys (our car has keyless access and ignition).

Behind this and underneath the armrest is the main center console bin. An extra USB charger is located in here. The extra top storage tray is removable.

I also like the front door bins. Even tall water bottles will fit in here, and the extra slot can come in handy for keeping other items.

Of course, there's also the glove box. We've currently got the owner's manual and our fuel log notebook in here.

Overall, I think the Optima should have you well-covered when it comes to storing your stuff.
