7 Features to LOVE about the 2016 Kia Optima SX LTD #DriveKia

I received this car from DriveShop for a 7 day test drive.  All opinions are my own


I have fallen COMPLETELY in love with this vehicle and seriously hated to give it back at the end of my test drive!  I have driven many cars for DriveShop and the 2016 Kia Optima SX Limited is my all time favorite!  What’s not to love about this stylish sedan in Snow White Pearl?

As far as Warranty, Mechanical & Safety features go we already know that all of the new Kia vehicles have the 10 year/100,000 powertrain SUPER warranty.  This edition of the Kia Optima also has a 2.0 Turbo Gas Direct Injection 4-Cyl Engine (which has AMAZING pick up!) and front advanced/mounted side airbags.


Let’s talk about the 7 interior, comfort and convenience features that really stood out to me!

Harmon-Kardon QLS Premium Surround Sound

Come on guys you should know by now that I need my sounds.  The quality of this surround provided me with several mini car concerts!

Aubergine Nappa Leather Interior

This interior!  Can you say gorgeous? The quilted leather is so buttery soft in Aubergine.  Wow!


Heated & Ventilated Front Seats

Always a bonus, especially in the Winter

Surround View Monitor

This allows you to see all angles when moving forward slowly or backing up

Heated Steering Wheel

This steering wheel warmed my hands right up and kept me so toasty & warm!


Panoramic Sun Roof w/Power Sunshade

Sunshine and light available for front and back seat passengers.

Heated Rear Seats

The kids really enjoyed this feature as it got a little chilly while we toured Georgia’s Fall festivals !

When it comes to luxury accommodations I give the 2016 Kia Optima SX LTD a score of 10 on a scale of 1-10. It has everything you expect in a high end luxury automobile. It has my name written all over it.  It’s classy, economical and comfortable.  Its the car version of me!  I can totally see myself driving this car forever (actually if they put a fridge and some running water in, i would live in it..) I didn’t know it before I got behind the wheel of this spectacular specimen that I would fall so hard.  I also didn’t know that Kia has come so far in the development and quality of their vehicles. I was super impressed.  She is everything.
