2017 Kia Optima SX Turbo ReviewCarGurus https://www.cargurus.com
THIS CAR HANDLES LIKE A MONSTER....A VERY COOL MONSTER! Its one of the best handling cars I have ever driven for under $30,000. Believe it or not,, I drove my Kia Optima SX AS A RENTAL CAR! LETS JUST SAY, I DID NOT WANT TO GIVE THE CAR BACK OR MAYBE....JUST GIVE THEM MY HYUNDAI SANTA FE AS A STRAIGHT UP TRADE! AS FOR A COMPPARISON BETWEEN THE OPTIMA SX AND THE CHRYSLER 200...THESE TWO CARS SHOULD NOT EVEN BE MENTIONED IN THE SAME BREATH, THE KIA FAR OUTSHINES ITS OPPOSITION! I WOULD NOT TAKE THE 200 IF IT WAS A FREEBIE!
vs2017 Chrysler 200 S Sedan FWD
2017 Kia Optima SX Turbo winning categories:
Looks/Style Ranked 2017 Chrysler 200 S Sedan FWD worse.
"With the right package (ie a Panaramic Sunroof and more) The KIA IS a lookeron the road. I am a firm believer in LEATHER interiors, with the remote exception of an alternative stain blocking cloth or other non leather material. Leather in the Optima SX makes it look like a BMW or Audi inside!"
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2017 Chrysler 200 S Sedan FWD worse.
"My apology, I did not mean to check off the Kia in Cargo Capacity superiority. The Chrysler 200 has a huge trunk over the Kia, but believe me, I am not even looking at cargo capacity if I am about to buy or lease a Kia Optima....especially the SX..a TURBO MODEL.!"
