2016 Kia Optima 1.6-Liter 4 Cylinder Turbo Engine 178 Horsepower Performance Review
2016 Kia Optima 1.6-Liter 4 Cylinder turbo Engine 178 horsepower Performance
The 2016 Optima rides on alloy wheels ranging from 16 to 18 inches, with
three new unique 18-inch wheel designs, depending on trim level. Three new
exteriors colors compliment the latest Optima's sophisticated styling: a
vibrant blue inspired by a sparkling ocean underneath a sunny sky; a
dynamic grey with olive undertones, and a deep red that gains depth from
the use of aluminum pigments.
"The Optima changed the way people felt about the Kia brand, and KMA owes
much of its growth and success to its head-turning design and sporty
performance. It was - and still is to this day - a fresh alternative in the
midsize sedan segment, and it amplified a five-year design-led
transformation that propelled Kia to record-setting sales year-on-year,"
said Michael Sprague, executive vice president, sales and marketing, KMA.
"The all-new Optima retains the signature personality of its predecessor,
but we've literally improved everything, providing more space, better ride
and handling, more technology and greater refinement."
Instantly Recognizable European Design
Because the previous generation Optima was such a success story for the
brand, Kia's designers had to strike a delicate balance, retaining the
identity of the vehicle while, at the same time, making a confident move
forward to keep the car modern and fresh. Sweeping contemporary surfaces
and modern architecture inspired the design of the all-new Optima,
revealing a sophisticated and dynamic sedan that is instantly recognizable
yet has more road presence than ever.
The all-new Optima is boldly designed to be functional and sporty with
exterior dimensions that are marginally longer, taller and wider. The
wheelbase has been extended to 110.4 inches (increased 0.4 inches), and the
vehicle has been widened to 73.2 inches (increased 1.0 inch). Both changes
enable a roomier and more comfortable cabin with more head room, shoulder
room and rear seat leg room. The increased dimensions also allow for more
cargo capacity in the trunk.
The all-new Optima is available with three engine choices, striking a
performance balance between sportiness and fuel efficiency. Two powerplants
carry over from the previous generation, the 2.4-liter GDI four-cylinder,
available on the LX and EX models, and the 2.0-liter GDI turbo engine, available on the SXL and SX turbo models. While the engines have yet to
receive EPA certification, the 2.4-liter is estimated to produce 185 horsepower at 6,000
rpm and 178 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,000 rpm. The 2.0-liter turbo is expected to generate approximately 247 horsepower at 6,000
rpm and 260 lb.-ft. of torque at 1,350 rpm. Both engines are mated to a
six-speed automatic transmission with Sportmatic® shifting while the SX
and SXL trims add paddle shifters. Both engines have been retuned for fuel
economy and better performance and drivability with maximum torque now
available at a lower RPM.
All new for the 2016 model is a 1.6-liter four-cylinder turbo engine. The 1.6-liter will be offered on the
LX trim. Pushing out an estimated 178 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and
a stout 195 lb.-ft. of torque at just 1,500 rpm, the new engine mates to a
seven-speed DCT, a first for the Kia brand. The transmission optimizes the
engine's responsiveness for a sporty feel that doesn't sacrifice fuel
economy. Also new for the Optima, Michelin® tires are available on all
trims. All three engines channel energy through the front wheels.
The aggressive front clip pulls the sheet metal taut over the wheel arches,
and the swept-back headlights reach deeply into the fenders. On the SX and
SXL trims, Kia's signature tiger-nose grille is hot stamped and composed
into a sophisticated pinpoint design that bears a strong resemblance to
Kia's luxury sedan, the K900. The all-new Optima introduces Kia's first
application of bi-functional HID headlights - with available Dynamic
Bending Lamps and High Beam Assist - that illuminate the tarmac around
The greenhouse silhouette maintains the raked A-pillar and sweeping
C-pillar that lend the Optima its sport-sedan appearance. The rear vent
windows kick up smartly just ahead of the carved rear fenders. As with its
predecessor, the all-new Optima incorporates a raised deck lid, and the use
of available LED halo-style tail lights mimics that of the Cadenza premium
