TrueDelta Reviews the Powertrain of the 2017 Kia Optima

2017 Kia Optima Powertrain: Cons
YearComment
As turbocharged four-cylinder engines go, the Kia Optima's 2.0-liter performs pretty well. Though horsepower is down from the previous generation's 274 to 245, the revised engine is significantly smoother and quieter. The problem with this engine: it doesn't approach competing V6s in subjective or objective performance. It doesn't sound or feel nearly as good as the Maxima's 300-horsepower V6, and takes another second-and-a-half to get to 60 mph (figure 7.5 vs. 6.0). Despite being down over 60 horsepower, at full-throttle the Mazda6 is as quick. (The Mazda doesn't feel as strong in typical daily driving, though.) To fully warrant its positioning and price, the Optima SX Limited needs a stronger, more thrilling engine. It helps that the Kia's six-speed automatic generally performs well and (if such a thing is desired) responds fairly quickly to manual inputs via the shifter or steering wheel-mounted paddles. Selecting sport mode noticeably increases the responsiveness of both the engine and transmission, nearly eliminating the modest amount of lag present in the other modes. see full Kia Optima review
