The Kia Optima can be described as so much more than a sedan. It's sporty, progressive, and ready to make your Mechanicsburg, Harrisburg, and Carlisle commutes fun again. But do you know if it's the right set of wheels for you?

At Fred Beans Kia of Mechanicsburg, we want all our customers to have the perfect Kia vehicle. With our 2020 Kia Optima review, you can discover the highlights of this sedan to find out if it's the right one for you. Let's dive in.

Optima Performance

Driving a sedan means quick acceleration and the right amount of vigor when hitting the city streets. The 2020 Optima offers this strength with its standard 2.4L 4-cylinder engine. It boasts 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque for some serious authority behind the wheel. It's paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission with SportMatic®, so you can easily put the pedal to the metal.

If you need to satisfy your inner speed demon, the 2020 Optima SX offers the 2.0L turbocharged engine. Get ready to experience some white knuckles from its 245 horsepower, 260 lb-ft of torque, and steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

Need the best gas mileage? Then opt for the EX trim with its 1.6L turbocharged engine. This is mated with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission to elevate your fuel economy. In fact, with this trim, you'll receive up to an EPA-estimated 27 city/37 highway/31 combined MPG.*

Kia Optima Interior

There's nothing that pairs better with pure power and efficiency than a stylish, roomy, and fully equipped cabin. After all, you'll want to be behind the wheel of the Optima a lot! When you slide into this sedan, you'll sink into available leather seating that sports a two-tone black and red palette that's both cozy and pleasing to the eye.  

The driver's seat is optimized to have everything within reach via a handy side console. Add on features such as available heated and ventilated seating or a leather-wrapped steering wheel to be surrounded by luxury.

Kia Optima Technology

No doubt you have a busy lifestyle and while you're traveling, you deserve to stay connected and entertained. This is seamless to achieve in the Kia Optima that offers a plethora of progressive technologies to make your commutes worthwhile.
