2018 Kia Optima’s Exterior Changes

While the new model is basically a carryover from the previous model year, we think the tweaks that have been made to the exterior of the vehicle make it a better option. You’ll get some extra trim options on each level, and the vehicle no longer comes with the SX Limited trim. However, this is good news because the most sought-after features of the SX Limited trim have been combined into the other trim levels. This gives you more value for less money, and you’ll love the sporty look of the base level S model. Give our dealership a chance to show you all of the incredible changes. We promise you won’t be disappointed. Compare model differences at Glassman KIA in Southfield Michigan. We will work with you to help you get a great vehicle.
