Meet the 2017 Optima

Handsome, athletic and ultra-refined, the Kia Optima stands out at every angle. Whether you are shopping for a car with hot styling and modern conveniences or you are more concerned with performance and fuel efficiency, you're sure to fall head over heels for this midsize sedan. To find out if this is the perfect car for you, check out our 2017 Kia Optima and Optima Hybrid review below!

Stunning Inside and Out

Since its redesign last model year, the 2017 Optima has become an even more popular option in the midsize segment. Sleek and sporty, the sedan is a definite head-turner, but it's what's on the inside that seals the deal. Even the entry-level Optima LX shows off with an upscale cabin dressed with the latest comfort and tech amenities, including a 5-inch radio display, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, power lumbar, remote locking/unlocking and a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel.

There are four other trims for the 2017 Kia Optima in Houston--LX 1.6T, EX, SX and SXL--and there are plenty of package options to boot. Two new packages have been added for the model year: Driver Convenience (LX) and Premium Plus (EX). Included in the former are heated and power-folding mirrors, an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat and driver memory settings, while the latter adds an electronic parking brake, select drive-assist safety systems and a 10-speaker sound system.

The Optima Hybrid has a lot to offer, too, showing off its own redesign this year. Now offered in Premium and EX trims, this eco-friendly variation of the sedan comes standard with heated mirrors, keyless entry/ignition, dual-zone climate control, a 7-inch touchscreen and smartphone integration.

Gas-Powered and Hybrid Options

There are a variety of powertrain options available on the 2017 Optima, depending on which trim you choose. The base engine, standard on LX and EX models, is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that makes a solid 185 horsepower and 178 lb.-ft. of torque. The LX 1.6T variant swaps the engine for a turbocharged 1.6-liter four, which achieves a comparable power output at 178 hp and 195 lb.-ft.

The top-of-the-line SX and SXL trims employ a turbocharged 2.0-liter four that boasts "V6-like power," according to 2017 Kia Optima reviews. Rated at 245 hp and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, this engine is added alongside performance-oriented equipment like paddle shifters, a sport-tuned suspension and dual-exhaust tips.

For those looking to live a little greener, the Kia Optima Hybrid also offers impressive performance, as well as improved fuel economy. It utilizes a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor, achieving a total system output of 199 hp and 235 lb.-ft. of torque.

Smart Safety Features

All models of the 2017 Kia Optima in Houston are equipped with the usual safety equipment, such as antilock brakes, stability and traction control, and hill start assist, plus a helpful rearview camera. Most models also feature Uvo emergency telematics, which aids in accessing instant roadside assistance or emergency services. Additionally, there are a plethora of optional security features that can be added, including rear parking sensors, blind spot warning, lane departure warning, forward collision warning with automatic braking and more.
