What's New on the 2018 Optima?

What are you looking for in your next car? If handsome styling, modest performance, a well-appointed cabin and budget-friendly options are top priorities, we recommend giving the 2018 Kia Optima in Houston a closer look.

This model year, the Optima debuts with even more standard safety features, adding advanced driver-assist technologies like blind-spot monitoring to every model. Kia also rolls out an all-new trim level for the Optima: S. Adding a variety of sporty upgrades--including a rear deck lid spoiler and dual-pane sunroof--the Optima S is slated to be a fierce competitor against the 2018 Camry, 2018 Altima and 2018 Sonata.

Optima Trims

The 2018 Optima comes in five trim levels: LX, S, LX 1.6T, EX and SX. Standard equipment includes everything from remote locking/unlocking, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, and a rearview camera to Bluetooth connectivity, a 5-inch media display and a built-in USB port.

Depending on which trim you choose, the Optima can also be outfitted with amenities like keyless entry, a hands-free trunk, driver memory settings, heated/ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 7-inch UVO touchscreen, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, wireless smartphone charging and a 10-speaker Harman Kardon sound system.

2018 Optima Horsepower

Ready to test drive the 2018 Optima for sale near me? You're sure to swoon over the sedan's smooth ride, confident handling and newly retuned steering system, which makes even running errands enjoyable. On top of that, there are plenty of powertrains to choose from, including two fuel-efficient hybrid options.

Standard, the sedan is outfitted with a 185-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and six-speed automatic transmission. Those who prefer the feel of a turbo engine can also opt for a 178-horsepower, 1.6-liter turbo-four, which comes paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch. For the most power, 2018 Kia Optima reviews recommend splurging for the top-of-the-line SX trim, which comes with its own exclusive engine: a 245-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbo-four.

If you're shopping for a new hybrid in Houston, the Optima is available in standard and plug-in options. Both utilize a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor, with the plug-in offering an all-electric driving mode. To learn more about Optima Hybrid performance, visit us today!

More advanced safety technologies, including adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking and a 360-degree camera system are also available on select models.
