Exploring the Kia Optima Trim Levels
The Kia Optima comes in four available trim levels to explore, the LX, S, EX, and SX. While the trim levels are similar, they come equipped with different technology, safety, and powertrain features. Here we’ll dive in to all four configurations to help you get a better understanding of which one fits your needs.
The base trim level is the LX, which comes equipped with a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that produces 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque capabilities. You’re also going to get the standard 6-speed automatic transmission.
The exterior design features a stylish matte gray front grille, heated side mirrors, LED daytime running lights, and 16-inch alloy silver finish wheels. Inside, you’ll find the standard 8-inch color touchscreen display system with UVO play capabilities and Bluetooth® audio streaming, which allows you to effortlessly connect your smartphone.
Under the hood of the S, you’re going to find the same 2.4L engine and 6-speed transmission that’s in the Optima LX. The exterior design features a gloss black front grille, sport black side sills, and a rear spoiler.
With this trim level you’ll get the Smart Welcome and Smart Trunk™ as well. Smart Welcome will detect your Smart Key and automatically switch on your door pocket lights, which allows easy access when it’s dark out. The Smart Trunk™ will automatically open when you stand behind the vehicle, which makes loading and unloading a breeze.
In the EX you’re going to get the 1.6L w/ Turbocharger engine, which produces 178 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque capabilities. This trim level comes with the 7-speed dual-clutch transmission which will provide you with an easy to handle and smooth ride. The exterior features 17-inch alloy machined finish wheels that look as great as they perform.
The final trim level is the Kia Optima SX, which comes equipped with 2.0L w/ Turbocharger engine producing 245 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque capabilities.
For those who want an advanced audio experience, this trim level might be perfect for you, because it comes equipped with the Harman/Kardon® QuantumLogic™ Premium Surround Sound w/ Clar-Fi™ system, which includes 10 speakers.To get more information on the Kia Optima, read our car review!
