Used Kia Optima for Sale in Southfield Michigan
Great looking yet highly functional, the Kia Optima has been wowing critics and consumers alike since its debut in 2000. And the 2018 model year—which finds the midsize sedan in the middle of its fourth production cycle—continues such a heritage. The 2018 Optima is available in five trims: LX, S, LX 1.6T, EX, and SX.
2018 Hyundai Optima’s Exterior
On the outside, the 2018 Optima starts off with features such as a chrome exhaust system, power-adjustable heated mirrors with LED turn-signal indicators, and projector beam headlights with auto light control. Going with the EX or SX adds features such as a hands-free smart trunk and side-mirror power folding ability. Exclusive to the SX are side sills, a panoramic sunroof, racing-inspired front and rear fascias, and dual chrome exhaust tips. The S is the only trim with a chrome-accented front bumper, and it joins the SX in having a rear spoiler, distinctively styled black metallic grille, LED fog lights for long-lasting and penetrating illumination, and sports-style LED rear combination taillights. The LX and LX 1.6T get 16-inch alloy wheels while the S and EX ride on 17’s and the SX receives 18’s with red brake calipers.
2018 Hyundai Optima’s Interior
With two rows of seats for up to five occupants, the 2018 Kia Optima provides a passenger volume of 104.8 cubic feet. Cargo volume from the trunk is measured at 15.9 cubic feet, although you can expand it into the cabin when necessary by folding down the rear bench-style seat. Front seating comprises an 8-way adjustable driver’s seat with 2-way power lumbar support; and a 6-way adjustable passenger seat. Upgrading to the S trim level elevates front seating with 10-way power adjustability, and it is the only variant with sport black-and-leatherette cloth seats. The upper-level EX and SX trims get additions and enhancements such as leather upholstery, front-seat heating capability, and 12-way power adjustability with 4-way power lumbar support and a memory system for the driver’s side.
Only the top-of-the-line SX has front-seat ventilating capability (in addition to the heating) and sport-styled leather seats. For comfort and convenience, the Optima starts off with features such as remote keyless entry, six-speaker audio, Bluetooth® wireless connectivity for hands-free phone operation and audio streaming, a 3.5-inch TFT LCD driver-information display, and Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ for smartphone-based infotainment control. New for the 2018 model year is a 7-inch color touchscreen for displaying entertainment information. On the EX and SX, the upgrades and additions include dual-zone automatic climate control and smart key system with push-button engine ignition and engine immobilization. Unique to the SX is auto-dimming ability on the rearview mirror to tame headlight glare from vehicles driving behind you.
2018 Hyundai Optima’s Mechanical
For a smooth ride, no matter the type or condition of road surface, the sedan has a MacPherson strut front suspension and a multi-link rear suspension. The SX, though, has its suspension tuned tighter to increase driving excitement. The car uses motor-driven power steering—which draws power from an independent source (an electric motor), rather than touching the engine—for accurate and efficient turning and cornering. Notably, the SX has its electric motor mounted on the steering rack while the others have theirs on the steering column. The sedan relies on a sturdy and mechanically cohesive steel unibody construction.
2018 Hyundai Optima’s Powertrain
Under the hood, the 2018 model usually relies on a 2.4-liter inline 4-cylinder (I4), which provides 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque. However, true to its “1.6T” suffix, the LX 1.6T is powered by a 1.6-liter turbocharged I4, which produces 178 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. It is the smallest of the engines available on the Optima. As the top dog, the SX has the largest and strongest engine: a 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 that puts out 245 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. All trims except for the LX 1.6T get their engines paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The LX 1.6T instead relies on a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, which uses two separate clutches for odd and even gears. Due to its unique powertrain configuration, it provides the best fuel economy on the nameplate: 28 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway.
2018 Hyundai Optima’s Safety
For cushioning and restraint in the event of a crash, the 2018 KIA Optima has a driver’s side knee airbag, a pair of front impact airbags, dual front seat-mounted side impact airbags, and a pair of roof-mounted side curtains. Other standard safety features on the sedan include electronic stability control, a rearview camera, traction control, hill start assist control, and four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes. Upgrading to the EX or SX adds the previously mentioned smart key system with push-button engine ignition and engine immobilization, which act as a theft-deterrent mechanism. For the 2018 model year, advanced safety features like lane change assist, blind-spot detection with rear cross-traffic alert, and a rear parking assist system to bolster the function of the rearview camera are added as standard on all trims.
