The top end of the new Optima mid-size sedan lineup is the 2001 Kia Optima SE V6, packed with plenty of standard features and a 170-hp, 2.4-liter V6 engine. The only transmission is a 4-speed Tiptronic shiftable automatic. The 2001 SE V6 is loaded with the same features as the SE I4, but has a few more options available to it.
Dual front-side airbags are standard in the 5-passenger Optima. On the V6, ABS brakes are also optional. Seats split-fold 60/40 to expand on the 13.6 cubic foot trunk. The SE also sits on bigger 15-inch wheels than the base LX sedan. Some features you'll only find on the SE are a sunroof, heated mirrors, keyless entry, security system, CD player, and a leather-trimmed wheel and shifter. It also has full power features, including an 8-way power driver's seat. Along with the ABS option, the 2001 Optima SE V6 can be equipped with leather seats. Drivers feel the 2001 Optima SE V6 is a good value since it comes with a lot of features. They also like the roominess. Problems with power window failure is a major downside.
This overview covers the SE V6 trim only.
