A few weeks ago, we posted a review of the Kia Optima Hybrid Premium, and now we’re back with a review of the 2013 Kia Optima SX Limited.
The 2013 Kia Optima SX Limited is the new top-tier trim level of the Kia Optima sedan. First introduced at the 2012 Chicago Auto Show, the upscale Optima Limited builds on the Optima SX’s existing foundation of class-leading horsepower and fuel efficiency, while adding a number of exclusive design and feature upgrades.
Offered exclusively in Ebony Black, Snow White Pearl and Titanium Metallic exterior colors, the Optima SX Limited features many luxury details, including LED daytime running lights, chrome-accented rear spoiler and lower door sills, and wood interior trim.
Standout red brake calipers can be seen through the Optima SXL’s uniquely designed chrome 18-inch wheels, while the 2.0-liter turbo GDI engine delivers an impressive 274 horsepower and 269 lb-ft. of torque. Switch off traction control and prepare to be impressed!
Inside, high-grade Nappa leather adorns the seats, door panels, center console armrest and center fascia trim for a premium feel. Beautiful wood accents can be found on the steering wheel, interior door trim and shift knob. The Optima SXL also boasts an electronic parking brake, which is offered exclusively on this uplevel trim.
Our Optima was LOADED with options, including HID headlamps, Supervision meter cluster with LCD display, steering wheel paddle shifters, metal pedals, illuminated door scuff plates, panoramic sunroof, eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat with memory, four-way power front passenger’s seat, heated/cooled front seats, heated rear seats, navigation system with back-up camera and SiriusXM Traffic, and an Infinity audio system and speakers.
Kia’s done a phenonimal job with the 2013 Kia Optima, it just clicks on all cylinders. If you’re in the market for a midsize sedan, stop by the Kia dealership and test drive the new Kia Optima. You’ll be glad you did!
