http://www.autobytel.com/kia/optima/2... Kia has gone from ranking dead last in 2001 for Initial Quality according to JD Power. Now Kia ranks 2nd right behind Porsche in the same survey. Kia has quickly become a major player and some of the success is due to the Kia Optima which is part of a very competitive mid-sized sedan category. Prices start at $21,990 for the base LX trim up to $35,890 for the SXL Turbo model. The model tested here starts at $23,990
Now it is even more appealing in order to stand out from the crowd. First thing is the styling which includes a cool grille making the car very handsome. Under the hood is a 1.6 liter turbo 4-cylinder engine that makes 178 horsepower and 195 lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy checks in at 28 MPG in the city and 39 MPG on the highway.
