2007 Kia Optima review and picture


The Kia Optima has been trying for a long time to be able to stand out in the class of family sedans. It’s used to making an inconsequential but decent mark on sales and competition, but nothing to really make a name for itself. It has largely been known, instead, as the Kia What? But now, in 2007, the Kia Optima actually has a little momentum behind it, and perhaps with a few more years it will get even better and become truly optimal.

What are the great things about the 2007 Kia Optima? Let me tell you a few, and there are quite a few in the model year of 2007, especially compared to the last few dry years.

  • lots of features that come standard. More than enough, really.
  • lots of space in the backseat.
  • a well designed exterior and body.
  • long warranty that covers quite a bit.
  • lots of fun when it comes to longer rides.

As for the things that aren’t so great about the 2007 Kia Optima, the list is getting smaller every year. Here is this year’s list of what still stands to be improved for the Kia Optima to leap to the top of its class of family sedans:

  • mediocre dynamics in driving
  • if you get the manual transmission LX trim level, you don’t get an antilock brake system
  • driving on the highway, the power of the V6 engine wears down
