The new addition made in the 2016 version of Optima is plug-in, hybrid technology which makes it different from other cars in this category. Kia has also added some style to its exterior to give it an exclusive touch. The 2016 Kia Optima has a tapered and sleek roofline that sets it apart from various other modern and trendy sedans.

Interior of the 2016 Kia Optima

The interior of the 2016 Kia Optima has received great reviews regarding its cabin having been styled quite attractively. Its cabin gives a very roomy feel while driving it. The legroom in its front seats and back seat is enough to enjoy long drives comfortably. A USB port, Bluetooth, a cooling glove box and satellite radio, are the other equipment provided in the 2016 version of the Optima. Some of the optional features offered by Kia include a 10-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, proximity key, rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, rear cross traffic alert, blind spot detection, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, an 8-inch touch screen for Kia's UVO infotainment system with navigation and compatibility with AndroidAuto and AppleCarPlay. An array of logically arranged infotainment and climate controls on the dashboard along with uncomplicated UVO infotainment system have also impressed the drivers of this car as they can be operated easily with the help of buttons and knobs. You can get in it and come out of it easily through its large and opening doors. The driver's seat is made supportive and wide with plush leather which can be power adjusted completely in four-ways. 

Performance of the 2016 Kia Optima

Though the 1.7-liter diesel engine of the previous year Optima was very reasonable as it speeds up from 0-60 mph only in 10 seconds with decent performance on the road as well. While overtaking other vehicles on the road it has to work hard and sound loudly when accelerating for this purpose. So to improve its performance, Kia outfitted the 2016 Optima with a four cylinder turbocharged 1.6-liter and or a 2.0-liter engine with automatic transmissions. According to drivers, the power of its 1.6-liter turbocharged is respectable for daily driving. Its 2.0-liter engine is considered as powerful as V6 engines used in various mid-size sedans of rival companies. The average fuel consumption of the 2016 Kia Optima is 24 mpg within city and 35 mpg on the highways which is a respectable EPA rating for vehicles of this class. With its sensitive steering the 2016 Kia Optima handles corners quite well and quietly. Though the firmness of its ride resembles that of highly priced sedans, the firmness of the brake pedal of  the Optima helps in stopping it at shorter distance than other similar vehicles in this class.

Thus, the 2016 Kia Optima offers a fine balance between performance and comfort while driving in daily routine.
