2016 Kia Optima | Moosic, PA
As midsize sedans go, it has taken a few years for the Kia Optima to catch up with the likes of the Nissan Altima, Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. Now redesigned for the new model year, however, the 2016 Kia Optima has taken bold aim at those long-loved competitors, and the results can now be seen at Performance Kia in Moosic, PA. With its appealing, sloping roofline, terrific trio of powertrains and quiet, composed cabin, the 2016 Kia Optima is set to announce its arrival in the midsize sedan segment as a less-ubiquitous option for Pennsylvania drivers.
Along with the outstanding traits mentioned above, the new Kia Optima also offers a host of outstanding technology features. Perhaps the most praise has greeted the Kia UVO eServices suite, which allows users to employ voice-recognition tech to access smartphone functions, turn-by-turn navigation and searchable local apps. The Optima also adds an assortment of great driver-aid technologies, including Autonomous Emergency Braking, Advanced Smart Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning, and Blind-Spot Detection with Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

When a Scranton-area driver decides to take the plunge with the 2016 Kia Optima, they’ll have the choice of three outstanding powertrain options at their fingertips. Of the Optima’s five available trim levels, the LX and EX come standard with a 2.4L inline four-cylinder engine that generates 185 hp and 178 lb-ft of torque, mated to a standard six-speed transmission. Up next -- and as its name would suggest -- the LX 1.6T features a turbocharged 1.6L four-cylinder engine paired with a seven-speed automated clutch transmission, and generates 178 hp on its way to 39 highway mpg. Finally, rounding out the lineup are the SX and SXL, which boast a 245-hp 2.0L Turbo capable of 32 highway mpg.
Once inside the 2016 Kia Optima, up to five adults enjoy an interior cabin that is both functional and spacious, with soft-touch materials and comfortable seating found throughout. An available panoramic sunroof on higher trim levels allows passengers to enjoy the exterior elements as well, while the 15.8 cubic feet of cargo capacity lets users store all cumbersome items with ease.
