New 2017 Kia Optima Available Now at Shaker's Kia in Watertown, CT

With its 2017 update, the Kia Optima continues to set the bar for excellence in the compact sedan category. The Optima's combination of sharp styling, terrific engine power and performance, and a host of features and options is uncommon to its segment. The new 2017 Optima adds new driver assist features and introduces a plug-in hybrid model.

Power and Performance

The 2017 Optima has a range of engine options, depending on your bias toward fuel efficiency, affordability or performance bias, or your desire to balance all three. The base models (LX and EX) come with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that makes 185 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque. Performance-minded drivers will want the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that produces 245 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, while there's also a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that still manages 178 horsepower and 195 pound-feet or torque.

The hybrid versions of the Optima include a 2.0-liter four-cylinder paired an electric motor that generate a net output of 192 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque and is EPA-rated at 39 mpg city/46 mpg highway. The newest model, the plug-in hybrid Optima, has the same gas engine paired with a more powerful electric motor and achieves EPA-rated fuel economy of 103 mpg-e or 40 mpg combined.

Features and Options

The Optima is available in five trim levels. Each is very well-equipped relative to its price, and there are several optional packages available at each level.

An available Driver Convenience package adds heated and power-folding mirrors, a power-adjustable driver's seat, and the Convenience Plus builds on that by addition blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors, and Kia's Uvo infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen display and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
