My One Week 2016 Kia Optima SX LTD Test Drive Experience!

Disclosure: I was provided the 2016 Kia Optima SX LTD to review by Drive Shop. All thoughts and opinions are my own.


I am always very excited when given the opportunity to test drive a vehicle courtesy of Drive Shop. This time was no exception, and when I found out that were getting the 2016 Kia Optima SX Limited, I was pumped! It seems everywhere that I go these days I see this vehicle on the road! What’s not to love about this stylish sedan with all of its bells and whistles? 

I could go on and on about about how much that we loved this vehicle, but I am going to list for you my top my favorite 5 features of the 2016 Kia Optima SX LTD!

As always, each Kia vehicle comes with a 10 Year 100,000 Mile Limited PowerTrain Warranty. This Kia Vehicle has a 2.0 Liter Turbo Gas Direct Injection 4 Cylinder Engine and a 6 Speed Automatic Transmission with Active Eco System 18″ Alloy Wheels. 

Nappa Leather Interior

The interior inside this vehicle is stunning! So buttery soft and elegant! The seats have a quilted look to them which gives an extra flare that I just love. We drove the car to Ft. Myers to a Spring Training game and I can tell you that the seats are very comfortable! 

Heated and Ventilated Front Seats

This may be one of my favorite features of the car! As someone who lives in Florida where it gets extremely warm, we put the ventilated seats to good use and boy did it feel good! 

Panoramic Sunroof

I love a sunroof in a car, but when the sunroof covers the entire length it is amazing! It is so much fun to have the sun shining in all around you as you drive around town! 


Lane Departure Warning System and Blind Spot Detection System 

I really like this feature as it alerts you when you are starting to shift in the other lane. This is a great feature especially for those who are traveling by themselves. The Blind Spot Detection System has warning lights in in the side mirrors which conveniently alert you when vehicles are detected in your blind spot. And, when you shift into reverse, Rear Cross-Traffic Assist can detect approaching vehicles. Safety features such as these are at the top of my list when I am purchasing a new car. 

Harmon-Kardon QLS Premium Surround Sound

I love me a good surround sound system and this one does not disappoint! You can listen to your favorite radio stations or CDs and be blown away with the sound! This vehicle also features SIRIUSXM Satellite Radio and has Bluetooth Wireless Technology which is great for all of you tech-savvy folks!
