2018 Kia Optima near Cross Plains

Why Choose the 2018 Kia Optima near Cross Plains?

For years, the Kia Optima has held a special place in our hearts as a cost effective choice in the mid-sized sedan arena. It has been a dependable standby in terms of value and driver friendliness. The new 2018 Kia Optima near Cross Plains features even more interior upgrades and a wider range of options to make the car truly your own.

About the 2018 Kia Optima

Perhaps the most notable feature of the new 2018 Kia Optima near Cross Plains is the fact that the base line LX trim level has received a pretty substantial boost in features and technology. Thus, even for the low $20,000 price point, you will enjoy a lot of high tech safety features that the competitors reserve for their upper trim packages. In addition to the blind spot monitoring and rear view cameras, the 2018 Kia Optima also boasts a pretty impressive 29 mpg average fuel economy and comes with an optional Turbocharged upgrade for increased power.

What The Experts Say

Overall, the 2018 Kia Optima stays well within its wheelhouse as a family oriented car that offers plenty of passenger room and cargo space. It is very fuel efficient, so it's perfect for family road trips or daily commutes. The five separate trim packages make it easy to find a vehicle that closely matches your needs with extra tech gadgets, a wider budget range, and plenty of specialty addons in the upper tiers to make this a luxury drive. You'll notice that even the bottom tier comes with a large touchscreen infotainment system that is easy to navigate and very well thought out. The redesigned cabin features a number of premium materials that already add to the aesthetic and feel of the vehicle, putting it closer to some luxury sedan competitors. This includes both leather seating and dual zone climate controls.

As far as the driver experience goes, it seems that the 2018 Kia Optima has mixed reviews on the transmission. A traditional automatic transmission is smooth flowing just like you would expect from a comfort cruiser. However, some people have noted that the newer dual clutch 7-speed transmission in the turbocharged models feels a little too eager to jump up to the next gear. In some configurations this can cause an unexpected lag in the amount of power that is actually accessible at the wheels. For the most part it isn't noticeable in normal driving around town, but if you're hitting the interstate you may feel the difference.

Ultimately, the 2018 Kia Optima performs exactly as expected for the mid-size sedan category. It receives bonus points for the number of premium upgrade features that have been included in the base model, making it just a little more driver friendly than all of the competitors in this price range.
