The 2017 Kia Optima sedan is equipped with a standard 2.4-liter I-4 that produces 185 hp and 178 lb-ft of torque and paired to a six-speed automatic that delivers an EPA-rated 25/36 mpg city/highway for the base LX trim and 24/34 for the EX trim. The optional and fuel efficient 178-hp, 195 lb-ft of torque 1.6-liter turbocharged I-4 is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and delivers 28/37 mpg, but can only be equipped in the EX trim. The most powerful engine, a 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 that produces 245 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque (also mated to a six-speed automatic), manages to deliver 22/31 mpg and is available in the SX and SXL trims. The Optima does not offer all-wheel drive like the Ford Fusion and Subaru Legacy.
Beyond those three gas engines, the 2017 Kia Optima is available as a hybrid and plug-in hybrid. The 2017 Optima Hybrid manages to deliver an impressive 39/42 mpg while the Optima plug-in hybrid electric vehicle can run up to 29 miles on all-electric energy and has a combined fuel economy rating of 40 mpg.
If you decide to purchase the mid-level EX trim, the EX Premium package becomes available and includes a panoramic sunroof with power sunshade, an 8-inch touchscreen with Uvo Eservices and navigation, 10-way power adjustable front passenger seat, ventilated front seats, LED interior lighting, blind-spot monitoring, rear parking sensors, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and an auto dimming rear-view mirror. The SX trim’s Launch Edition package includes everything above but adds Merlot color sport leather seating, a Harman/Kardon premium surround-sound system, satin chrome accents, and heated rear seats.
