A trophy you can drive
The crowd is cheering. The confetti is flying. One racer stands victoriously with the trophy
hoisted above his head, while the others can only watch. This is what it’s like to win. This is
what it feels like when you drive home in the Kia Optima—the champion of midsize sedans.
Few can boast performance like class-leading 274 horsepower1 and 34 mpg/hwy2; available3
technology such as push-button start, a voice-activated navigation system, heated and cooled
seats and power-folding mirrors; and style like leather trim, 18" alloy wheels and panoramic
sunroof. This is one trophy you’ll want to display proudly on the road and at home.
