The new instrument panel might be less interesting, but it's ergonomically superior.

The around-view camera, only on the SX Limited, makes parking safer and even fun.

Diamond-quilted upholstery as in some far more expensive cars. But not as comfortable as it appears.

Abundant rear legroom, but scarce rear headroom.

The related Sonata has a similar instrument panel, but it's less stylish and appears much cheaper.

The Maxima's interior is more exciting, and a little better finished.

The overhangs appear a bit tighter than before, but remain far from tight. Looks long.

A handsome car with a strong stance, but no longer a striking one. Strong front corners.

The C-pillar continues to be the most interesting part of the exterior. Third window moved off door.

The previous Optima had the third window on the door. Signature chrome strip cuts across the pillar.

Nearly passes as upscale. Steering wheel hub and center console trim don't contribute.

Not eye candy. A decent turbocharged four, but it doesn't compare to a good V6.
