Completely redesigned last year, the 2016 Kia Optima offers two turbo engines – a 1.6-litre and a 2.0-litre – as well as an entry-level 2.4-litre 4-cylinder. The hybrid version is an interesting alternative combining comfort, style and fuel economy in a charming package. The spacious Optima is able to bring the whole family on vacation, even if the kids are grown up.
