Car Pictures and Reviews: 2011 Kia Optima SX Turbo | Car Review | The Kia Optima SX Turbo is wonderful, I can not think of any parts in which disappointing. It is also simply beautiful to look at. There are plenty of legroom in front and rear passengers to easily accommodate more than six feet tall and its trunk is very large. And with a turbocharged engine, the Kia Optima achieves an impressive balance of speed, power and economy. It accelerates quickly, and yet I managed 25 mpg in mixed driving. Not a great car but it is certainly a good deal.
This is an exception to the rule: "Do not mess with a good thing." Kia was already a good car, the Optima, and made it even better with the addition of 274 hp turbocharged 2.0-liter engine and sports suspension. At first I thought the turbo was too much for power through the front wheels - but I was wrong. As a little 'patience at low speeds, mitigating the couple waited to drive, and when you change, with more than 74 horses aspirated Optima EX is welcome and will be without penalty. EPA rating is 22 mpg SX Turbo city/34 mpg highway, just 1 mpg less in town, and the same votive highway. The suspension is firm but not hard, and the steering is sensitive, to remove the artificial feeling of heaviness in the EX. EX is tuned to appeal in the heart of the traditional market, but the SX Turbo is a practical, efficient machine, a driving enthusiast can enjoy every day. [ Car Review ]
I was very impressed with the Turbo Optima SX series, and this requires really mark things. The most notable was added to 75 horsepower from the turbocharged engine. The car is very fast, and surprisingly not a lot of torque, even if all the power through the front wheels. The management is very good for improving the suspension SX, and traction control system works well without being too distracting. But the most amazing thing about this car is its value. Our test car was fully loaded, including the panoramic sunroof, heated and cooled seats, heated rear seats, navigation and traffic information reporting and stylish wheels, all for just $ 30K. One of the best market value, there is no reason not to keep this car when shopping for a new sedan. [ Car Review ]
