That’s a great question! The Kia Optima—now rebranded as the Kia K5 as of 2021—features four cylinders across all three available engine options.
The base
LX
and S trim levels include a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 185 horsepower, while the
EX
features a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that generates up to 178 horsepower.
If you’re looking for more pep in your step, then go with the top-tier
SX
, with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that boasts up to 245 horsepower. You can expect to get great gas mileage with a four-cylinder engine too!
And considering Kia produces some of the most affordable vehicles around, you can also count on saving money on
car insurance
with the Kia Optima as well!
