2016 Kia Optima Atlanta GA

Used 2016 Kia Optima at Metro Kia near Cartersville, GA

Kia's best-selling car, the Optima, is redesigned with what Kia calls more mature styling; it's also longer and wider than its predecessor and gets a turbocharged engine. The 2016 Kia Optima builds on its reputation for perky driving manners and sharp styling, yet it smooths out its rough edges.

Design of Kia Optima

When the original Optima debuted, it was positioned as a fresh alternative to its bland-looking mid-size sedan competitors. This version builds on that mission subtlety with swept-back headlights and a revised tiger-shark nose that resembles the brand's K900 luxury sedan. Newly available are high-intensity-discharge headlights with Dynamic Bending Lamps and High Beam Assist; they illuminate the road around corners. Rear styling cues include a raised deck lid and an LED taillight design similar to the Kia Cadenza full-size sedan. Three added exteriors colors are available: blue, gray and red.
