The 2016 Kia Optima in El Paso: Raising the Performance Bar

The 2016 Kia Optima has raised the bar that was set by its highly respected 2015 predecessor. With much gusto, it confidently pushes the midsize sedan boundaries, with much to spare. As you read through this article, take note that El Paso dealers have this sleek head-turner ready for you.

Power Trains and Performance

All the Kia Optima 2016 models are front-wheel drive with a 6-speed automatic transmission that comes standard. Both the EX and LX versions come to you with a 4-cylinder, 2.4-liter engine capable of generating an impressive 185 horsepower and some formidable 178 pound-feet of torque.

The LX 1.6T, on the other hand, has a 4-cylinder 1.6-liter turbocharged engine to give you 178 hp plus 195 lb-ft torque. Kia has paired the LX 1.6T engine with a 7-speed automated clutch transmission.

Trim Levels and Options

The Kia Optima 2016 model is a 5-passenger midsize sedan. You can pick your choice from several trims. This includes LX (slightly differentiated for the Optima 2.4-liter base and 1.6T engines), SXL, EX, and SX trim levels.

Enhanced Infotainment and Interior Features

The 2016 Optima is the first Kia that features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, something that will appeal to both the young and the old. The UVO infotainment system has features that teens will love including curfew alert, speed alert, geofencing, and “driving score.”

Inside, the cabin of the 2016 model has received genuine stitching along the doors and dash to give it a nice touch of class—also reflected in its price point. Want to get a hold of the Kia Optima in El Paso? Visit a nearby dealer and take this evergreen car out for a test drive.
