*This is a sponsored post for KIA. I was given a #KIA #Optima to drive in order to facilitate this review. All opinions and content belong to Jenny at dapperhouse.
I recently had the opportunity to drive a new 2016 KIA Optima. It is one heck of a cool ride and definitely a car that I would want to own myself. Here are a few pics and features that you will love about the KIA Optima.
I loved the moss grey color because it looks modern and sharp.
As you can see, it was very icy in Chicago while I was driving this car. Traffic can be dangerous in these conditions so I was relieved that it has incredible safety features like:
- Dual Front Advanced Airbags
- Front Seat Side Airbags
- Driver’s Knee Airbag
- Full Length Side Curtain Airbags
- Anti Lock Braking System
- Traction Control System
- Electronic Stability Control
- Hill-Start Assist Control
- Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems
- Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH)
- Blind Spot Detection System
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert
The other amazing feature for me was the magical gas mileage that the KIA Optima has. I drove this car everywhere for an entire week and only used a quarter tank of gas. The guys from Drive Shop USA told me that this car gets 32 miles per gallon on average which equates to only about $1400 in total fuel costs for the entire year! Incredible right?
Inside the KIA Optima is gorgeous, comfortable and stacked with all the latest comfort and technological features such as Navigation System, Center Console USB chargers and Dual Control Air with back seat air vents. Driving it is so comfortable and smooth. The lumbar support helped a lot too and the fact that it keeps the memory of my seating and mirror positions made it really easy to just get in and drive.
This really is a special car that you can be proud of owning and driving. Just for fun you should go take a test drive and see for yourself why you will want to own a sporty and luxurious KIA Optima.
