Vehicle Description


The 2016 Kia Optima looks a lot like last year’s model, but there is a lot that’s new under this midsize-sedan’s shapely styling: a ton of new technology and features, an upgraded interior, and a new turbocharged engine with better low-end power delivery. Then there’s the new steering on the SX and SX-L models, which when coupled to better suspension, makes the 2016 Optima surprisingly fun to drive. The 2016 Kia Optima makes a formidable case for itself against the likes of class leaders like the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry and Nissan Altima, plus similarly fierce new competitors like the all-new Chevy Malibu. Factor in competitive prices and excellent fuel economy, and it’s a compelling midsize-family sedan.
Driving the Used 2016 Kia Optima
Midsize sedans like the 2016 Kia Optima aren’t sports sedans, but driving dynamics matter even in day-to-day commuting, and it’s where the new Kia Optima boasts the biggest improvement compared to its predecessor. There’s a new electrical power-steering assist on the Optima SX and Optima SX-L that vastly improves steering feel and feedback, making the new Optima feel much more connected to the road than last year’s model. Note that Optima LX and EX models – which we didn’t drive – use the same unloved power-steering system from last year. Still, the suspension was nicely sorted, maintaining calm over large and small bumps, and staying composed on a twisty mountain road. The transmission responded quickly to the steering-wheel paddles, and the new turbocharged 2.0-liter engine had an excellent seat-of-the-pants feel, with good low-end torque.
Favorite Features
ANDROID AUTO & APPLE CARPLAY
Fully integrated smartphone systems are our new favorite thing. After all, that’s what we’ve really wanted our infotainment systems to operate like ever since the iPhone first came on the scene. Now, it’s a reality. Just plug in your Android or iPhone, and duplicate controls appear onscreen.
HARMAN/KARDON AUDIO
We’re used to seeing harman/kardon audio systems in high-end luxury sedans, but a system like the available QuantumLogic7 surround audio system in a car like the 2016 Kia Optima is a rarity. And it sounds great, too, and audiophiles will appreciate harman/kardon’s Clari-Fi system, which gets the most from MP3s.
Used 2016 Kia Optima Interior
The new Kia Optima’s dash is bisected by a thick metallic band of trim, with the gauges, infotainment touch screen and vents above, and the audio system and climate-control buttons below. It’s a clean design, and one that maintains the driver-oriented tilt of the previous car. All of the interior materials felt very high quality, with soft-touch surfaces on the door tops, dash and pretty much everywhere else you’d want them. The seats were plenty comfortable, and the back seat is downright huge, offering ample legroom even for tall passengers. Optima SXL models get Nappa leather and other high-end touches.
Used 2016 Kia Optima Exterior
One school of thought on the Kia Optima’s styling is that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. The old Optima was still a great-looking midsize sedan, sharp and modern, and the new one carries over much of the same sensibilities. There’s a similar grille design, the same sweeping arc of chrome over the roof, and so on. Yet there is so much new about the 2016 Kia Optima that others say that it deserved standout styling to match. Whatever you think, it’s still a sharp-looking car, even if it’s not very distinct from its predecessor.
Used 2016 Kia Optima Standard Features
The base model 2016 Kia Optima LX comes with a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Beyond that, there’s a Driver Mode Select system that switches among Normal, Sport and Eco modes. Other Optima LX standard features include manual air conditioning, a 5-inch LCD screen with a rearview camera, and controls on the tilt-telescope steering wheel for the cruise control and audio system, which includes Sirius satellite radio, Bluetooth and Auxiliary and USB inputs. The two front seats both adjust six different ways, with power lumbar support for the driver, and adjustable height on the passenger side.
Used 2016 Kia Optima Options
The 2016 Kia Optima Eco comes with a 1.6-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder connected to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, while the SX and SX-L get a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine and a much improved power-steering system. Kia has also made its blind-spot detection, rear cross-traffic alert and rear parking sensors available on LX and Eco models. Optima SX buyers can add active cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning, and a surround-view monitor as well. Other upgrade features include dual-zone climate control, a dual-panel panoramic sunroof with a fully opaque power sunshade, and the excellent harman/kardon audio system.
Used 2016 Kia Optima Engine
Base Optima LX and mid-grade Optima EX models get a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder with 185 horsepower connected to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Optima SX and SX-L models get a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with 245 horsepower, also connected to a 6-speed automatic, albeit with steering-wheel-mounted paddles. Note that both engines have less horsepower but more torque compared to last year’s similarly sized versions. New to the lineup this year is an Eco model, slotting between LX and EX. It comes with its own drivetrain, a 1.6-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder with 178 horsepower, but connected to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Fuel economy is solid across the board, with LX models getting 37 mpg on the highway, SX getting 32 mpg, and the Eco model getting 39 mpg.
