4 Reasons to Buy a 2018 Kia Optima Near Slinger, WI

  1. Low operating costs. The 2018 Kia Optima is an incredibly affordable sedan, starting at just around $28,000. But it isn't just a low upfront price that makes the 2018 Optima desirable. The 2018 Optima comes in 5 available trims with three engine choices, each of them delivering high fuel efficiency. The base 2.4 liter starts it off with an EPA-estimated 24 miles per gallon in the city and 36 miles per gallon on the highway, but the real savings are in the 1.6-liter turbo engine that gets a very impressive 28 mpg city and 37 mpg highway.
  2. Top performance. In addition to delivering such great fuel economy, the available engines offer excellent performance capabilities, particularly when you choose those equipped with a turbocharger. The turbocharged 1.6-liter engine accelerates from zero to 60 mph in just 7.7 seconds while the slightly more powerful 3.0-liter is capable of making that jump a second quicker at 6.7 seconds. In addition to this performance aspect, drivers of the Kia Optima will enjoy its firm brakes and responsive seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission.
  3. Quiet and comfortable interior. If you are one of those drivers who hates to hear road noise while you're driving around Slinger or commuting to downtown Milwaukee, then you will really appreciate the noise dampening prowess of the 2018 Kia Optima. Kia has gone to great lengths to ensure that this sedan and other models have the best in sound-reduction design. Other positive interior aspects include plenty of room and a wide range of adjustments in the front seats and plenty of rear cargo space in the trunk.
  4. Incredible warranty package. The Kia warranty package might not be exclusive just to the 2018 Kia Optima (it is included with all new Kia vehicle purchases), however, it still bears mentioning as Kia offers one of the most desirable warranty packages of all automakers. When you buy a Kia Optima near Slinger, you'll get an impressive powertrain warranty that lasts 10 years or 100,000 miles as well as a 5-year/60,000 mile limited basic warranty and other bonus coverages. The powertrain warranty though is the most important as such an extended plan will offer you added peace of mind and assurance that unforeseen and unexpected service and repairs will be covered. Why does Kia offer one of the longest and more extensive warranty packages? Because Kia models are built to last and company warranties are designed to reflect the assurance representatives have in their design and builds.
