20134dr Sedan 198-horsepower 2.4L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Paid 25k for 2.4 L4 limited (nav and panoramic sunroof) that was fully loaded and compared to other similar models I think this was a steal of a deal.
20114dr Sedan turbocharged 274hp 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Currently a good lease deal on the sport version with turbo.
20114dr Sedan 200-horsepower 2.4L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Huge number of features often options on other brands. Long warranty. Real world prices are best value out there.
20104dr Sedan 175-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Very competitively priced. I saved $3000 when compared to a camry or accord with similiar features.

Cheep car.

Dealer was not willing to negotiate at all. Such is often the problem with a brand new model that is high in demand.

Too expensive for what they represent (cheap and low class)

Price of the Kia Optima: Pros

20134dr Sedan turbocharged 274hp 2.0L I4

The SX Limited is not an inexpensive car. The MSRP on mine was just shy of $36,000. I always lease cars, though, and I will say that my monthly payment is about $40 lower than it was on the 2010 Acura TL I had (which had a nearly identical sticker price). I'm assuming that Kia was simply offering more aggressive discounts than Acura, since their residuals can't possibly be on par. However, though Acura has great cachet and brand image than Kia, I'm much happier with the Kia so far.

$4,000-5,000 for closest Camry or Accord with far more equipment, higher horsepower, better fuel economy with a far better warranty.
20074dr Sedan 161-horsepower 2.4L I4

The price was $17,300 brand new.
