2018 Kia Optima Sedan Improvements New Features and Specs

The same goes for vehicles like the 2018 Kia Optima.  It is a carryover from the 2017 model year for the most part, and it has been a successful model year (2017 IIHS Top Safety Pick, Kelley Blue Book “Best Family Sedans” for 2017 list, etc.), but you can also expect improvements for 2018.  First among them is a new trim level that provides a sporty look and drive experience, but at a low sticker price.  We’ll look at the new features of the 2018 Optima, and what specs and features you can expect for 2018!
