I was provided a week long loan in a vehicle in exchange for my honset opinion.
What I really love is the sporty exterior. The LED lights and heated outside mirrors with turn signal indicators are quite the luxury. I also love that the mirrors fold in when you lock the car. There's electric power steering and a 6-speed sportmatic transmission AND there are even paddle shifters on the steering wheel! So nice to have manual features without it being a fully manual car.
The 2015 Kia Optima really handles curves and sharp turns very well and it did great on the highway and in the city. I was so impressed with the fuel efficiency - 27 MPG with 23 in the city and 34 on the highway. I barely put a dent in the tank for all the driving I did.
There is a fantastic sound system in the Kia OPtima and the Push Button Start and Smart Key entry is amazing!!! I love the navigation system, the satellite radio and the Bluetooth abilities.
What was really cool was that there are controls on the door for the trunk and the gas. You can learn more about the 2015 Kia Optima on the Kia website.
