Over the last few years, the Optima has become one of America’s favorite family sedans. Drivers have grown to love the car’s combination of style and performance. Take a closer look at the new 2016 Optima LX Turbo.
New Turbocharged Engine
The Optima LX Turbo is powered bssy a strong four-cylinder engine. A turbocharger helps the 1.6-liter engine to produce a satisfying 178 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque. When tested at the track, the sedan hit 60 mph in a brisk 7.5 seconds.
Excellent Gas Mileage
Equipped with a dual-clutch automatic transmission, the Optima LX Turbo can return an impressive 39 mpg on the highway. The Optima’s efficiency puts a lot of today’s compact cars to shame. Furthermore, you only need to use regular unleaded fuel.
For good reason, a number of automotive publications have given the Optima high marks for its beautiful styling. A new front-end makes the sedan sportier than ever before. Some of the striking paint colors include Sparking Silver, Gray, and Snow White Pearl.
By taking advantage of the Optima’s longer wheelbase, Kia was able to increase the amount of passenger room. Everyone will be able to ride along with an additional degree of comfort.
You will have access to several nice features, including a key-less ignition system and a blind-spot monitor. The touch-screen infotainment screen provides an extra touch of luxury.
