2018 Kia Optima in Wauwatosa

2018 Kia Optima for Sale in Wauwatosa

The 2018 Kia Optima comes in no less than five trims, and you’ll find them all at Russ Darrow Kia of Wauwatosa. You won’t find a dealership with more 2018 Kia Optimas for sale in Wauwatosa or a sales team that knows know more about the various trim levels the Optima comes in. Here’s just a primer on the differences between the 2018 Optima’s trim levels.

The LX Trim: A Well-Equipped Base Trim

The LX is the 2018 Kia Optima’s base trim, but there’s nothing basic about this well-equipped trim. Lots of features that are either optional features or unavailable on other cars come standard with this trim level. Some highlights include:

  • a rearview mirror and rear parking sensors
  • blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • a 7-inch touchscreen display
  • remote power locks and cruise control

With so many standard features, this trim offers a lot. Its starting MSRP of $22,500 makes the 2018 Optima LX even more attractive.

The S: A Sporty and Affordable Upgrade

With the S trim, the 2018 Kia Optima takes on a sporty feel and stance. To the L trim, this selection adds features like:

  • a sport front grill and sport front bumpers
  • a rear spoiler and a sunroof
  • LED fog lights and sport LED rear lights
  • larger 17-inch alloy wheels
  • sport cloth seats and a leather steering wheel

Starting at $23,500, the 2018 Kia Optima S is an excellent upgrade for drivers who want an aggressive-looking and quick sedan.

The LX 1.6T: A Step Up in Power

The 2018 Kia Optima LX 1.6T brings a boost of power, upgrading the standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine to a turbocharged 1.6-liter. This peppy turbo engine provides 195 pound-feet of torque, and it’s complemented by a 7-speed automatic transmission that’s unique to this trim. Additional features that come with the LX 1.6T trim include unique light gray wheels, a leather steering wheel and a leather shift knob.

With a starting price of $24,300, the 2018 Kia Optimas for sale in Wauwatosa are some of the quickest and most nicely equipped cars for sale under $25,000.

The EX: An Elevation of Luxury

With the EX trim, the 2018 Kia Optima gains a suite of features that make it feel more like a luxury sedan than a sports car. Among the features that the EX trim adds are:

  • a hands-free trunk
  • dual-zone automatic climate control
  • rear heat and air conditioning vents
  • heated front seats
  • leather upholstery

This is just a selection of what comes on the 2018 Kia Optima EX, which starts at $25,600.

The SX Trim: A Major Increase in Power

The SX trim brings a major increase in power, and it has the exterior features that should accompany a big improvement under the hood. Instead of the standard engine, the 2018 Kia Optima SX comes with a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that delivers 245 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. This is complemented by 18-inch wheels, a rear spoiler, dual exhaust tips, a sport-tuned suspension and more.

Starting at $30,500, the 2018 Optima SX is the most expensive of the five trims. The power is comparable to engines that come with much higher priced sedans, though.
