Ranked as the #6 Affordable Midsize Car by U.S. News & World Report, the 2016 Kia Optima LX is a budget-friendly sedan that boasts a sporty style. Completely redesigned with high-strength steel throughout the chassis, this five-seater offers better handling and structural rigidity. It also has 15.8 cubic feet of space in the trunk.
Under the hood rests a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 185 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque. Equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission, the Kia Optima has a fuel economy set at 28 mpg combined (24 city/35 highway). Experts at Edmunds also found that it can go from zero to 60 mph in 6.7 seconds.
The LX trim level includes 16-inch alloy wheels and upgraded interior tech options. The rearview camera is displayed on a 5-in monitor that operates with Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free calling. Pop in a CD, tune in to satellite radio, or hook up your smartphone via the auxiliary jack to listen to music through the 6-speaker stereo system.
