2018 Kia Optima Styling & Interior Features


The 2018 Kia Optima injects excitement into your everyday driving experience, and it all starts with the design. The aggressive front end definitely makes a statement on the pavement, thanks to the low stance and the trademark tiger nose grille which seamlessly blends into the headlights. The sculpted body lets the 2018 Optima effortlessly cut through the air (and the competition’s envious glances) as it comes and goes, leaving only a glimpse of its dual chrome tailpipes and aggressive-looking rear combination LED taillights. It gets even better the minute you step inside the spacious and quiet cabin, with soft touch surfaces and scientifically designed seat cushioning to make you feel right at home. The overall superb build quality is even more evident at the driver’s seat’s streamlined and ergonomic console layout, the better to take command behind the wheel. Premium stitching all around raises the bar for luxury and comfort. Stay connected wherever you go with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ on the 7- or 8-inch touchscreen with Bluetooth and voice command. Immerse yourself in audio delights with the Harman/Kardon® Quantum™ Premium Surround Sound with Clari-Fi™ 10-speaker system. You’ll look forward to every trip, one luxurious mile at a time, on the 2018 Kia Optima.

2018 Kia Optima Specs


Such a centerpiece of design, comfort and luxury deserves a proper showcase of performance. The 2018 Kia Optima offers the power of three at your disposal: a 2.4-liter normally aspirated four-cylinder with 185 hp and 178 lb.-ft. of torque; a 1.6-liter DOHC turbocharged 16-valve engine that produces 178 hp and 195 lb.-ft. of torque; and 2-liter DOHC turbocharged 16-valve powerplant that throws around 245 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. All engine variants come with Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) and Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (CVVT) to maximize output and efficiency, mated to either a 6-speed automatic or a 7-speed dual clutch gearbox. Macpherson struts at the front paired with rear multi-link suspension ensure a luxurious ride, yet the 2018 Optima hugs corners with ease thanks to the suspension’s sport tuning. When night comes, LED headlights with Dynamic Bending and Auto Leveling help you see far ahead and around obstacles or curves. Standard four-wheel ABS brings serious stopping power while maintaining control, and an array of front, side, curtain and knee airbags forms a protective cocoon for all occupants when the inevitable happens. The 2018 Kia Optima combines elegance, comfort, power and safety in one eye-catching package. Get ready to be awed by it up close and personal, only at Irvine Auto Center in Irvine, CA.
