A year ago, we had big names like NBA All-Star Blake Griffin and movie legend Christopher Walken doing ads for the Kia Optima. So what is there to do for an encore, after all that hubbub? For starters, you take a midsize sedan that is already the best blend of performance, style and value on the market, and then you enhance its standing with an updated eServices system and add cool technologies like Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, as well as making driver-assist features like Lane Departure Warning System and Autonomous Emergency Braking (available in only SX, SX Limited trims in 2016) available for an additional trim option (now also in the EX trim, plus SX and SX Limited in 2017), for only about $300 more.
All other trim levels for the 2017 Optima besides the EX are the same price as they were in 2016 models, which provides great value since UVO3's eServices give you more room for music, for example, with enough room for 8GB, or around 2,000 average-length songs. And every 2017 Optima comes with the security that comes from the Optima being named an IIHS Top Safety Pick, which means it's among the most impact or crash-resistant sedans in its class.
|Engine Specs & MPG||Interior Features||Technology|
|28 mpg city, 37 mpg highway, 178 HP: LX 1.6T trim||Seats five passengers||Active Eco System, standard|
|25 mpg city, 36 mpg highway, 185 HP: LX trim||104.8 cubic feet passenger room||Available wireless smartphone charger|
|24 mpg city, 34 mpg highway, 185 HP: EX trim||Available Nappa leather seat trim||Available UVO3 eServices with 8GB for music, 8-inch touchscreen|
|22 mpg city, 31 mpg highway, 245 HP: SX, SXL trims||Leather-wrapped steering wheel (all trims but LX)||Hands-free phone, standard (Bluetooth)|
Excited about the options of the 2017 Kia Optima yet? Then consider its starting fuel economy of 25 mpg city, 36 mpg highway for its base EX trim level, which ratchets up to a sweet 28 mpg city, 37 mpg highway for the LX 1.6T trim level. Not only will you save more at the pump than a lot of other midsize sedans with the 2017 Optima, but you also have a sedan that for 2016 was named a KBB.com Best Buy, and was named of the 10 Best Family Cars of 2016 by Parents magazine and Edmunds.com.
We haven’t even mentioned the value and peace of mind you get from Kia's industry-leading warranty, which checks in at 10 years or 100,000 miles for limited powertrain and 5 years or 60,000 miles for bumper-to-bumper coverage, which outpaces much of the competition. It’s for all of these reasons and more that we look forward to showing you the 2017 Kia Optima at Friendly Kia, 5819 US Highway 19 in New Port Richey, FL. We also serve the Tampa, Clearwater and St. Petersburg area, as well as Brooksville, Trinity, Tarpon Springs and Spring Hill.
