    More information about the 2012 Kia Optima:

    Altogether, the Optima is one of the sportiest-feeling mid-size sedans in its base configuration, while the Turbo model promises the acceleration and responsiveness of rival V6 models but with true 4-cylinder fuel economy-as high as 24 mpg city and 35 highway, by EPA estimates. It fits Kia's tradition of packing more features and value into their vehicles at the same price as lesser-equipped rival models while actually forging a beautiful new design direction. A hybrid powertrain continues to be available, and provides impressive fuel economy numbers of 34 city / 39 highway. Resale value for the new Optima is looking strong. ALG, which supplies residual value data to the auto industry, significantly raised its residuals for this generation Optima compared to the previous model--indicating confidence that this new Optima will be worth much more come trade-in time. Kia also still has one of the strongest warranties in the business, with ten years or 100,000 miles for powertrain and a 5-year, 60,000-mile vehicle warranty and roadside assistance.

    Strengths of this model include roomy interior, Stylish new design, excellent gas mileage, even with turbo, strong resale value, steering and handling, extensive standard features, and long warranty
