2017 Kia Optima Garden Grove CA
Does it get any better than the 2017 Kia Optima? For the price, we think Garden Grove, CA drivers can do no better. The model offers an ideal blend of function and form, as the overall look draws in the eye, but the performance seals the deal. Not much has changed for the model year, as the Kia Optima was entirely redesigned for the 2016 model year, but such a recent refresh keeps it modern in a competitive marketplace. We know you have plenty of midsize options, but the Optima is the one you’ll choose.
Everyone knows Kia has some tough competition, and from automakers that appear to be more established. This isn’t a case of “you get what you pay for” as Kia has come a long way to be the reliable automaker you’re looking for, at least according to the reputable reviews from Consumer Reports. That said, you get a reliable, dependable and attractive model for far less money than you’ll find from the competition. Sweetening the pot are two excellent engine options, starting with the 1.6-liter turbo.
Shoppers everywhere are tired of seeing the same old thing on the market: dull sedans. You want a vehicle that is refined, but also worthy of showing off to friends, family and neighbors. Attractive color options, slip headlights, chrome accents and a mesh grille combine to create an elegant option.
Technology seems to make the world go round, and it’s a lot easier to make your Optima go forward during those long trips. Standard features include a/c, remote keyless entry, cruise control, satellite radio with a six-speaker sound system, full power features and a rearview camera system.
There are three engine options for the 2017 Kia Optima, with the model starting off with a 2.4-liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine that delivers up 185 horsepower. Two turbocharged engines are also available: a 1.6-liter and 2.0-liter turbo four. Both options provide more power without hurting efficiency.
Why you’ll love the 2017 Kia Optima
At the end of the day, the most important thing is finding a car that’s the right fit for you. This means a model you can comfortably afford, but also one that doesn’t feel like a sacrifice. The 2017 Kia Optima has earned high praise because it offers an ideal balance of style, performance and comfort. The upscale materials in the interior provide that feeling of quality shoppers expect when shopping for a new car, especially in the higher SX and SX limited trims, which feature the diamond-stitched leather seating.
Technology is obviously an important consideration for modern drivers, but what can be added for convenience often ends up causing frustration. The 2017 Kia Optima shines among the competition because Kia kept things simple and easy to use. All controls are responsive, laid out in a logical way and feature knobs and buttons where it still makes sense. The UVO touchscreen system, though, is one of the simplest to use. In other words, the Kia Optima remains intuitive when other options are starting to develop a learning curve to operate.
The base LX and EX trims are attractive and peppy with 185-horsepower engines, while the LX 1.6T is ultra efficient and the top trim SX and SX Limited offer premium options with potent 245-horspower systems. Whether you lean more toward practical or sporty, you’ll love the 2017 Kia Optima. Find out just how much you fall for it when you stop by Garden Grove Kia for a test drive.
