2014 Kia Optima Turbo Test Drive Video Review
For a few years now, Kia has steadily been improving its line-up all the
way from the entry level compact car all the way to the top-of-the-line
Cadenza. The Optima is Kia's mid-sized sedan entry set to take on cars like
the Ford Taurus, Chrysler 200, Honda Accord, and Toyota Camry. The 2014 Kia
Optima has 2 engine choices, tons of options, and some seriously great
styling. The Optima has 5 different trim levels ranging in price from
$21,500 to $36,300.
Find Out More on the 2014 Kia Optima
On the outside the Optima has some subtle styling compared to its sister
car the Hyundai Sonata. But make no mistake; in a segment where every car
looks like another, Kia does a nice job of separating the Optima from the
rest of the pack. The headlights look great as does the strong shoulder
line. The blacked-out room looks good on almost every paint color and out
back the Optima has neat taillights that blend the meeting of angles.
You have 2 options when it comes to engines. The base is a 2.4 liter
4-cylinder engine making 192 HP and 181 lb-ft of torque. The more exciting
engine which is on this car tested here is a 2.0 liter turbocharged GDi engine that makes 274 HP and 269
lb-ft. of torque. The transmission is a 6-speed automatic with fuel economy
numbers checking in at 20 MPG in the city and 31 MPG on the highway.

The Kia Optima is an attempt to introduce something a little more daring to
a segment that includes dull but worthy models like the Toyota Avensis. Its
bold looks and well-appointed cabin will draw some attention and it also
comes fitted with a 1.7-litre diesel that provides a good balance between
performance and running costs.
WHY AM I SO UPSET WITH MY KIA K5?
KIA MOTORS, this is for you.
My K5 Optima is only 6-month old now (14,000km mileage) and I have 7-8
problems with my car since the 1st week of ownership. Your local dealer
here in Malaysia can't or isn't skillful enough to solve my problems
despite sending it in for numerous times, wasting my time and effort.
Please contact me if you are sincere with your products.
