2018 Kia Optima
For a model that has been in production since 2000, the Optima excels at keeping its loyal fans and happy while inspiring new generations of buyers. Odds are you know somebody who drives an Optima, and those odds will only improve in the future as more and more drivers discover this gem every year. We fully expect the 2018 Kia Optima to inspire the next round of Kia buyers and carry the torch forward.
As the Optima approaches its scheduled release date for Portland this summer, fans can expect what we always expect: an under-appreciated outward appearance, impressive handling, advanced interior features, and unbeatable value.
2018 Optima Features
The modifications to the 2018 Optima will continue to elaborate on the advancements made in previous years. For example, the trend toward developing a sportier and sleeker exterior (without being too aggressive) is a given. The Optima has always been a good-looking sedan, and it continues to refine its look.
Changes are coming underneath the hood as well. The 2018 Optima will have a new engine – a 7-speed, 1.6 liters, turbo 4-cylinder engine, to be exact, with 195 pounds/foot of torque. Projections are not quite official yet, but this new Optima engine expects to produce an admirable fuel rating of 28/39 miles per gallon city/highway, making those weekend trips to Hood River even more cost-efficient.
2018 Kia Optima Price
Kia’s world headquarters has always embraced the Optima as being a high-quality yet affordable sedan. Consequently, it is firmly entrenched within that niche, and we don’t expect to see prices elevate significantly in 2018. The base version is expected to cost around $22,500, while the fully-loaded version may run closer toward $36,000.
