One of the most interesting new features of the 2016 Kia Optima is a 1.6-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that is available on the vehicle’s LX trim. This engine provides a combination of power and fuel efficiency, and produces 178-hp, while getting up to 39-mpg on the highway!
What might be the fanciest, most relaxing option in the 2016 Kia Optima is the quilted Nappa leather seat trim. This material is designed to be better ventilated and keep the passenger comfortable while also being a bit softer than your typical leather seat trim.
Don’t you hate it when you go out to your vehicle with your hands full of groceries or luggage and you aren’t able to get the keys out of your trunk to pop it open? No need to worry about this annoying hassle thanks to the available Smart Trunk which opens when you stand behind it!
One of the main goals of Kia’s design team with the 2016 Optima was to create a larger, roomier vehicle drivers and passengers to enjoy. They succeeded in doing this by making the 2016 Kia Optima in Novato CA longer and wider. There is now almost 105 cubic-feet of passenger volume to enjoy, with over 45 inches of leg room in the front seats.
Now you are probably thinking, “If they made the interior larger they must have sacrificed space somewhere else!” Clever thinking, but you would be incorrect. The 2016 Kia Optima actually has more cargo space than the previous model. Almost 16 cubic-feet of trunk space is available to store whatever cargo equipment you may need to haul.
There is no denying that the 2016 Kia Optima is set to be one of the best vehicles on the road for the next few years. If you would like to try this outstanding vehicle out for yourself, get in touch with one of our Kia Marin sales team members today!
