2016 Kia Optima in Daphne AL
Midsize sedans have become a timeless icon of middle class and family values in the United States due in large part to their versatility, performance abilities and family-friendly features. This has led to some sedans getting almost lost in the crowd, but not so in the case of the 2016 Kia Optima in Daphne AL. As one of the flagship vehicles for the South Korean automotive giant, the Optima has proven itself time and time again to be one of the most innovative, safe, and fun cars on the open road.
At first glance, you may notice that the 2016 Optima has a different design than its predecessors. The body is now sleeker and sportier, drawing stylistic comparisons to its high-end counterparts from European manufacturers. The grille and headlights are prominent, almost like they’re waiting for you to jump inside and hit the road. And with the Optima’s 1.6-liter turbocharged engine capable of up to both 178 horsepower and torque output, it’s really hard to say no.
The 2016 Optima comes featured with three separate turbocharged engine options that provide a range of 178-245 horsepower and 178-260 lb-ft of torque.
The three engines that the 2016 Optima has available are a 1.6 liter and 2.0 liter turbocharged Inline 4, and a 2.4 liter Inline 4, available on the EX and LX trim levels.
The 2016 Optima gives you up to 28 miles per gallon in the city and 39 on the highway. With a tank size of 18.5 gallons, this equals a maximum fuel range of 722 miles!
