Even though our long-term 2016 Kia Optima came to us in base LX trim, that doesn't mean it has to be low-quality. The layout and materials make the grade.

    Still can't believe the depreciation on the K900. Buying a used 1 year old one for $30k-$35k (going rate) would give you a lot of car for the money.

    ^ ...And with the money you save, maybe you can put in a decent suspension. :P

    Seriously I the only one who liked the Saab-like interior layout of the previous Optima? I thought that was really cool. The current look is definitely nice, I'd be happy to commute in it, but in terms of styling it's a little "me too".

    ^ I agree... The previous Optima was a lot cooler in many ways. This new generation might be superior and better equipped but lost its cool.

    Kia needs to update their logo. The interior is nice enough but what stands out to me is that huge bargain grade design on the wheel. Gotta update those things too as a brand evolves

    You guys should also show a picture of your long-term Sedona - also a very nice interior and of a piece with the rest. Kia has their act together with interior architectures and materials.
