Kia Optima Inventory For Sale in Auburn, WA

The New 2018 Kia Optima is the Reliable, Well-Equipped Choice for Auburn, WA Commuters and Road-Trippers Alike

As it's a designer and builder of capable mid-size cars that pull ahead in the segment and have excelled on the market for new sedans many years running, few four-door automakers can match wits with the likes of Kia. Now that the 2018 Kia Optima has appeared on the scene, our nameplate looks to keep its tradition for a new model year, with a trim gamut from base LX and S through fuel-economical LX 1.6T to the well-appointed EX and line-crowning SX. Certainly, it's affordable -- approximately $22,600 at entry level to around $30,600 at the apex - but we think, like years of enthusiasts, that you'll find it's also a model of distinction when it comes to the advanced features and industry-forefront technologies to make the grade. But the word of an Auburn, WA Kia dealer is one thing. Step into the driver's seat for yourself here at Sunset Kia of Auburn, and you'll find the drive-time quite another.

Power & Performance

For one, the new 2018 Optima offers a choice of three spirited engines catering to drivers from the distance-goer to performance aficionado. There's a turbocharged 178-horsepower, 1.6-liter inline-four built for fuel economy, a turbocharged 185-horsepower, 2.4-liter inline-four for some extra pep in your driving step, and a 245-horsepower, 2.0-liter variant for a thrill or two. But whether you're off to work here in the northwestern Washington area or heading down the highway on that long-planned pleasure cruise, you'll find going the extra mile a matter of course. The new Kia Optima offers respectable EPA-estimated fuel economy of up to an estimated 22-28 MPG city, 31-37 MPG highway, and 25-31 MPG combined, depending on your trim choice.

The ride's an enjoyably nimble and responsive one, too, thanks to a MacPherson strut front and multi-link rear suspension, dovetailing with standard Vehicle Stability Management, an Electronic Stability System, and Hill Start Assist control for evenness over diverse terrain and through disagreeable weather. Factor in an ample selection of safety and driver-assist technologies available throughout the lineup to intelligently help along the way, and it's a snap to reach your destination with peace of mind. Optima can sense vehicles in your blind spot, notify you of those approaching from the side, keep an eye on things immediately behind, apprise you before an accident, and even brake automatically in an emergency. It can also help you safely distance yourself from other vehicles, keep you aware of your situation when making lane changes, inform you when you drift, and ease parking with an assist system that takes note of obstacles nearby.


Plus, the mid-size sedan's roomy, cargo-friendly, and most of all, comfortable. Slip into its inviting up-to-104.8-cubic-foot cabin. Your choice of either CleanTex and leatherette sport cloth, leather, sport leather, or quilted Nappa leather seating presents, with heating and ventilation available in upper trims, affording a veritable lap of luxury. Control convenience remains within reach, too, whether you're entertaining fellow passengers or acquiring directions thanks to 7-inch and 8-inch touchscreen-equipped UVO infotainment options, with voice-activated navigation coming standard in upper trims. What's more, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard, too, throughout the Optima line, so your smartphone can come along for the trip.
