Sneak Peak at the 2011 KIA Optima

The All-New 2011 KIA Optima is being referred to as "one seriously attractive sedan" and is in the running to be its segment style leader, better yet maybe even the best model in the

Here at Jim Butler KIA, we are proud to say that KIA has evolved and then we stand next to one of our great New Models in our beautiful Showroom in Chesterfield Valley off 722 Long Road Drive Crossing behind Walgreens (hint--hint).

While we still have several 2010 KIA Optimas In-stock and we don't know when exactly we will have the 2011 model or if it will actually be called a 2012 model instead, we are tickled at what is in store for us!

The All-New KIA Optima has been completely redesigned and is laced with all the bells & whistles that we can start to expect on every KIA
model. Awesome gadgets like navigation, Bluetooth technology, satellite radio, a cooled glovebox (just in case you forget about that chocolate bar you left in there), Push-Button Start, and available heated leather seats!!

Something that particularly pops out on this model is the paddle-shifters on the steering wheel...hmmm. When you peak under the hood you'll see a more fuel efficient 2.4 ltr four cyclinder engine that makes 200hp. So we have to ask ourselves if this is going to be a fun car to drive or just another sedan, then we looked at all the other great vehicles that KIA has developed in the past year and a half (KIA Soul, Sorento, Sportage), and we are confident that our answer is "YES!".

Although the New KIA Optima does have an awesome design, sportier handling, and cool technology features, it is also projected to get up to 34 mpg/hwy which makes the environment very happy.
