Great Value
Kia was offering thousands of $$ in customer cash, plus a military veteran's bonus, for leasing. Then I went to work on the dealer, and got the lowest possible money factor (interest rate) and highest residual value. After some haggling, I got the dealer down on their sale price. The point of all this explanation is to say I got a great deal on a really well-built car. I think the Kias are a great value for the money, are well-built, and have a solid warranty.
Nice car loose performance for comfort
I brought this car around Aug in 2017. I got the EX trim. I was a previous owner of a 2012 and a 2015. (all the base line of the Ex Trim.) This is a very nice car but I lost a few things from the previous 2. I lost fog lights, engine power, dual exhaust in my opinion better sounding speakers. you also loose the lit up cup holders and holders in the door. At first when I got the car I was un happy with it. But as an owner in the last few weeks I'm really beginning to like it. In my EX base I have very comfortable seats with memory placement for 2 people, a newer dash, a improved Air conditioner, it's quiet and smooth (as far as wind noise) With this car you do still hear road noise, ( just like the old one) Very much improved gas mileage, Satellite radio is much easier to navigate, Bigger glove department. This car can drive in 3 modes economy, Standard and sports mode. As time went on I realised there is a big difference in power driving in sports mode than in Economy mode. In sports mode and normal mode you get much more power than in economy mode but in my opinion not as much as in the older models. but it's enough. The older model had 195 horse power vs this model has 185. One thing thats great the oil changes are done at 7500 miles vs 5000. Also the side view mirrors fold and there are lights where the door handles are on the outside, not necessary but it's cool. Over all this is a nice car I loved what i gained but I hurt in what i lost.
Always had excellent Hondas Kia is smoother.
Be sure to drive it first. Smoooth

The 2017 Kia Optima is a midsize sedan that offers a slightly better value proposition than many of its competitors. Typical of most Kia vehicles, the Optima is available in several trim levels, most of which can be ordered with your choice of feature packages. This means that high-end safety and luxury features can be optioned on even the base LX model. On the downside, this makes it fairly difficult to navigate the Optima's offerings without a guide. We've done the heavy lifting for you.

The 2017 Kia Optima comes in LX, LX 1.6T, EX, SX and SXL trim levels. Powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, the entry-level LX is equipped with features appropriate for its very reasonable price, such as automatic headlights, a rearview camera and satellite radio. Multiple option packages add a power driver seat, a blind-spot monitoring system and a 7-inch touchscreen, among other upgrades. The LX 1.6T is a modestly priced upgrade that includes a few of the above additions and a fuel-efficient turbocharged engine that is unique to this trim. The EX is slightly more expensive and reverts to the LX's engine, but it includes many more luxury-themed features such as leather upholstery, dual-zone climate control and contents from a few of the packages from the above trims. We think it's the best value if you don't need one of the performance-minded Optimas.

Speaking of which, the SX is driven by a powerful turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that makes 245 horsepower. A few performance and creature-comfort upgrades are also included, which amounts to a significant price jump over the EX. If you just want a high-octane engine without the frills, the SX's new Sport Value package slashes the price by ditching some of the niceties. If you want your Optima fully loaded, however, there's nothing more luxuriously equipped than the SXL. It includes everything from the lower-priced trims in addition to a few exclusive upgrades. It's fairly expensive for a midsize sedan, but the Optima SXL's elegant cabin feels more premium than those of top-trim competitors.

The Optima's base price is in line with most of its rivals. You'll find the Optima is less expensive than others as you start moving up the trim ladders and comparing features for the price. Even at the SXL level (which can cost more than upper-echelon competitors), the Optima gets the win for its greater feature content and show-stopping cabin trim. When you're ready, use Edmunds' robust shopping tools to find the perfect Optima for you.
