Best Car I've Ever Owned

I just bought the 2020 Kia Optima EX Premium last week and I love it. This car rides great, is comfortable and the amount of tech features is incredible. I had a 2014 Toyota Camry and the difference is mind blowing, the Kia practically drives itself.

Excellent and safe car.

This car is exactly what I want in a car. It has all the whistles and bells and the safety features. Live my new car!!!!

2020 Kia Optima SE

Absolutely love it! All the bells and whistles of a high end European car at a fraction of the price with a very responsive and economic 4 cylinder engine. Infotainment system is very simple to use not to mention the countless safety features. The sound system is loud and crystal clear. Plenty of space for my wife and our little ones who are still in car seats. I love the panoramic moon roof especially being downtown. The blind spot monitor and lane assist come standard with Kia which is a huge plus for me. The AC cools down the interiors very quickly despite these muggy Chicago summers so I’m expecting the heater to warm up fast in the winter. Very happy with this purchase!
