2018 Kia Optima for Sale near Naperville

Take Off from Joliet, IL in a New 2018 Kia Optima, and Your Travel Possibilities Abound

When it comes to a tradition of excellence in craftsmanship, few automakers can offer quite what Kia can. Nowhere is this better exemplified than its flagship mid-size car, ahead in the segment and on the market alike for new sedans now many years and running. For a new model year, the new Kia Optima continues to maintain its standing, too, from base LX and S trims to the fuel-economical LX 1.6T, all the way to the well-appointed and fully loaded EX and SX. Not only is it the affordable option, too, around $22,600 at entry level to approximately $30,600 at the top of the line. It's also a model of distinction on its own, from performance and safety features to industry-benchmark technologies. See for yourself firsthand, right here at our Kia dealership in Joliet!

Power and Performance

Right out the gate, you can look forward to a choice of three lively engines, from those for distance travel to plants geared for something a little higher-octane. First off, a turbocharged 178-horsepower, 1.6-liter inline-four, made with excellent fuel efficiency in mind. Secondly, a turbocharged 185-horsepower, 2.4-liter inline-four for a bump in energetics. Finally, a 245-horsepower, 2.0-liter for that adrenalized thrill enthusiasts crave. But whether you're off on the daily grind here in northern Illinois or heading up the highway to Naperville or New Lenox on that pleasure cruise you've been looking forward to, going that extra mile is regardless a matter of course. 2018 Optima offers superb EPA-estimated fuel economy of up to 22-28 MPG city, 31-37 MPG highway, and 25-31 MPG combined, depending on the trim you choose.

Safety and Driver-Assist Features

If you're looking for a definition of peace of mind for your local tour, whether around to Bolingbrook or out to Plainfield and Orland Park, a new Optima sedan is just that. Features to keep you safe and intelligently assist you on the road abound throughout the lineup. A load of standard and optional technologies can help you observe vehicles in your blind spot, let you know of those approaching at your side, keep an eye on traffic and obstacles behind, inform you before a collision, and even automatically brake during an emergency. Of course, let's not forget those features that help you keep a safe distance from other vehicles, maintain situational awareness during lane changes, let you know when you drift lanes, and ease parking.

Interior and Technology

Last, but certainly not least, when you opt for Optima, you choose accommodations at the height of comfort for the trip. The mid-size sedan is spacious, cargo-ready, and most of all, a world apart from the outside, with an up-to-104.8-cubic-foot cabin home to seating options in CleanTex and leatherette sport cloth, leather, sport leather, or quilted Nappa leather. It's available with heating and ventilation in upper trims, too, conducive to the year-round Prairie State climate. What's more, the car's expertly equipped for entertainment and connectivity, from the 7-inch and 8-inch UVO touchscreen infotainment options in lower trims to the voice-activated navigation-including variant in those upper. Better yet, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay come standard throughout the lineup, inviting your smartphone and all its features along for the ride.
