You'll Like This Car If...
If you're looking for a good midsize-sedan value, one with plenty of modern features, sharp styling, good driving dynamics, and a roomy interior – y'know, the works – then the 2016 Kia Optima hits all the right buttons.
You May Not Like This Car If...
Maybe you're a Honda or Toyota loyalist. Maybe you've had three Nissan Altimas in a row and don't see a reason to change now. The point is that blind brand loyalty is about the only reason we can see for not putting the 2016 Optima on your test-drive list.
What's New for 2016
The 2016 Kia Optima is all-new this year, with a stiffer structure, retuned suspension, bigger interior and trunk, improved engines with better drivability and fuel economy, and a host of new technology features. The modestly different styling doesn't capture the extent of the changes underneath.
