2016 Kia Optima Corpus Christi, TX


Optimized and Redesigned

Kia believes that a low price shouldn’t translate to low quality, and the manufacturer has earned the trust of drivers across the country for their high-value, affordable vehicles. For its humble price tag, the Kia Optima delivers a comfortable ride, smooth handling, responsible fuel economy, and excellent safety ratings.

Kia completely redesigned the Optima for 2016, with new technology, a spacious cabin, and several engine options. The airy interior is ideal for long rides and road trips, and the expanded variety of entertainment features will keep things interesting no matter how long the journey takes. Kia’s commitment to safety is reinforced by a host of available driver assistance features to keep everyone out of harm’s way.

The 2019 Optima comes in five trims:

  • LX
  • LX Turbo
  • EX
  • SX Turbo
  • SXL Turbo

Even the starting trims come with popular tech like satellite radio, and you can find extra comfort features like heated seats in the EX and SX trims. At the top of the lineup, the SXL Turbo features brilliant HD headlights, a 10-way power adjustable front passenger seat, and other amenities.

The Kia Optima’s value is hard to beat, so if you’d like to see how much car you can really get for such a low price, come see it for yourself at Mike Shaw Kia. Our team is ready to show you this car’s trims and features, and we can even let you take it out for a test drive today!

Interior Review of the 2016 Kia Optima

Five occupants can fit comfortably in the Optima’s roomy cabin, and drivers have praised the front row’s ample legroom. The seating was designed to accommodate long trips without wearing on the occupants, and the base cloth upholstery may be substituted with leather. Families may secure car seats in the back row via two full sets of LATCH connections, both of which are easy to locate and fasten. Whether you’re packing up for a road trip or just bringing home a cart’s worth of groceries, you’ll find plenty of cargo space in the Optima’s 15.9 cubic foot trunk. The UVO infotainment system offers a wide variety of technology features through a practical touchscreen.

Performance of the 2016 Kia Optima

You have three engine choices to power the Optima. The base is a 185-horsepower 4-cylinder, while two turbocharged 4-cylinders are also available, providing 178 or 245 horsepower. A punctual six-speed automatic transmission comes standard, although the 178-horsepower engine is paired with a seven-speed dual clutch automatic.
