2016 Kia Optima EX

Are you in the market for a great mid size car? The 2016 Kia Optima may be the right one for you and your needs.

The 2016 Kia Optima averages 28mpg so it's a very fuel efficient option if that's important to you. It gets 24 in the city and 35 on the highway. This is very accurate. The Optima has extremely good gas mileage and does very well on the highway!

 I received the 2013 Kia Optima EX for my test drive. It has some really great features like dual temperature control w/rear vents, sirius satellite radio, bluetooth technology, push button start with a smart key and so much more.
I have really come to love the smart key's. You get in your car and push a button to start the car, as long as the key is within a certain distance of the car, it will start. This means you can leave it in your pocket or purse and not have to worry about leaving them, finding them or dealing with all the stress. 

 Cupholders in back row
 LOTS of trunk space with the 2nd row seats up AND down. 
The Kia Optima has one of the largest trunks I've ever seen in a sedan. VERY large and will hold everything you need.
 Lots of foot room as well in the front and back rows. Plenty of room for anybody you're traveling with.

he Kia Optima is a really safe car. It offers Dual Front Advanced Airbags, Dual Front Mounted Side Airbags, Full Length Side Curtain Airbags, Vehicle Stability Management, Electronic Stability Control, Brake Assist System, Hill Start Assist Control, Advanced Smart Cruise Control, Back-Up Warning System and so so much more.

I would recommend the Kia Optima to anybody who needs a commute car, or a very small family (3-4). I had no issues fitting 2 car seats in this car, but 3 would be impossible. It's a wonderful car with great gas mileage though. 

The Kia Optima starts at a base price of $21,990. The EX that I received with a few extras came to $30,615. Very reasonably priced.

*Disclaimer, I received a Kia Optima for a 1 week test drive. All opinions here are 100% my own and I was not compensated to write this post, other than receiving the vehicle

Awesome! We tested out the Kia Sedona in the fall and loved it.
