I bought an 2015 SXL after reviewing all other midsize cars in it's class. Honestly, I was about to buy an Audi until I actually sat in and test drove this car. Interestingly enough, for the options the SXL had I would have had to spend $6-9,000 more on the other vehicle I was going to get. The engine pulls like a turbine powered engine, its twin scroll turbo four puts a definite smile on my face. The interior is comparable to the more expensive vehicles from Germany and the UVO is easy to understand and learn. Exterior is very well done and defintly gets looks in SXL trim. I'm particular when buying a car and this is the best choice by far!

Amazing car so far after 26,000 miles. When I bought a hybrid I often wondered if it was a good car for commuting long distances. Well, surprise, surprise, I drive 150 miles round trip each day and this car handles like a charm. Gas mileage is super and I have already saved hundreds compared to my last vehicle. It has plenty of power although it may hesitate on fast takeoffs at times. I actually like driving this car just as much as my Mercedes E350. AWESOME!!!

Dump your Camry or Accord!

We used to have a 2007 Dodge Caliber R/T, and the Optima is 3 times better. The suspension tuning is just perfect. Fitting 3 adults in the back is fantastic. We can fit 2 large travel bags and lots of groceries at the same time. It feels great that you are in a 2014 Top Safety Pick. Bluetooth is not at all complicated to setup. It is exciting to go to the grocery store in the car, headlights are really good, and ride comfort is amazing. We have the base LX trim, and still feels really luxurious. Definitely are great buy, the best buy!

I have a 2015 Kia Optima SXL. I love this car more and more everyday. It is absolute perfection, I would change nothing. To all the negative people out there, show me a car that has everything my Kia does for the same price. I have never been so happy with a car and the only thing I will have in the future is another Kia Optima.

Great value for the $$

Started having transmission trouble with my 06 TL (which I purchased new and just loved) and did a lot of research before buying my SX Turbo. I am very happy with the car. It is large enough to seat 4 comfortably, but has a lot of pick up and maneuvers very well. The Turbo with sport mode is fun to drive even though it decreases gas mileage a bit. I drive in Eco mode to/from work while in traffic to maximize gas mileage and enjoy the Sport mode on the weekends when out for a day trip, so it is very versatile. The only thing I miss about my TL is the leather used for the seats was softer and nicer to sit on. The SXL offers an upgraded leather interior but, for me, the extra $$ weren't worth upgrading to the Limited. However, I am very happy with my decision!

I purchased a used 2012 Kia Optima Hybrid in late 2012 with only 7900 miles, knowing I was really buying a new car. I love the car and all the features , but now reality has set in that the Value is $10,000 less than what I owe. The car only has 50,000 miles . Why is the Kia model losing so much value so fast ? Purchase price $25,000 , Value $14,000..
