2018 Kia Optima - Conroe, TX


Reliability and Driving Pleasure Returns to Conroe, TX for a New Model Year in the New 2018 Kia Optima

It's not every mid-size sedan that can lap the competition to pull ahead in the segment and remain a contender for years running. But from base LX, S, and fuel-efficient LX 1.6T trims to EX and fully loaded SX, the Kia Optima continues the tradition of doing just that. Bumper to bumper, curvaceous design line to well-appointed cabin, we think you'll find in the new 2018 Optima as many advanced features and cutting-edge technologies to love as have years of enthusiasts. But don't take the word of a Conroe, TX Kia dealer for it. The proof's behind the wheel.

The new Optima lights out of Conroe for 2018 packing your choice of three energetic engines: a turbocharged 178-horsepower, 1.6-liter inline-four economically built for distance travel, a turbocharged 185-horsepower, 2.4-liter inline-four, and a 245-horsepower, 2.0-liter performer for aficionados of the sport drive. But whether you're a commuter on the daily grind to The Woodlands or Spring or hitting the highway on that long-planned road trip out of Cypress or Tomball, the extra mile's a matter of course. 2018 Optima offers respectable fuel economy of an estimated 22-28 city mpg, 31-37 highway mpg, and 25-31 combined mpg, depending on your choice of trim.


Likewise, you can count on a ride remaining limber and responsive thanks to the Kia mid-size's MacPherson strut front and multi-link rear suspension. It dovetails with standard Vehicle Stability Management, Electronic Stability, and Hill Start Assist control systems to keep 2018 Optima capable over diverse terrain and through inclement weather. Factor in a bevy of safety and driver-assist technologies, and it's a breeze to arrive at your destination with peace of mind. The new Optima can detect vehicles in your blind spot, approaching from the side, and immediately behind; it helps keep you situationally aware when changing lanes, and can even simplify parking with an assist system designed to keep you in the know of obstacles nearby.

But for the height of drive-time security, step into the driver's seat of a 2018 Kia Optima SX. The mid-size sedan can automatically brake in an emergency, keep a safe distance from other vehicles on the road, apprise you in advance of an accident, and even let you know when you're unintentionally drifting lanes, resulting in a ride quality unparalleled.

To that end, the 2018 Kia Optima doesn't rely only on top-tier protection. Slide in, and you'll find a capacious interior burgeoning to up to 104.8 cubic feet, your passengers' and your comfort tailored to your preferences with your choice of CleanTex and leatherette-appointed sport cloth, leather, or sport leather seating depending on trim. Quilted Nappa leather's even an option, with heating and ventilation in upper trims, so relaxation's the order of the day no matter your predilection. Moreover, control remains at your fingertips whether you're entertaining or getting directions on the fly thanks to a 7-inch touchscreen-equipped UVO infotainment system that ascends to one 8-inch with standard voice-activated navigation in upper trims. What's more, every 2018 Optima trim's Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatible, so your smartphone can come along for the ride.
