Kia Awards

If you want a sedan to suit your personality, the 2018 Kia Optima is ready to oblige. Exterior colors take the look toward sophistication or sport. Interior choices let you go from affordable quality to premium design. Named one of the 10 Best Sedans Under $25,000 by Kelley Blue Book, this sedan provides a handsome escape from the ordinary.

Explore Your Color Options

There are 11 exterior color choices, but some hues are limited to specific trim levels. Cabins come with one of nine upholsteries. There are two cloth choices. These CleanTex fabrics have been manufactured to withstand stains, odors, and static. Pushing the design more upscale, three regular leathers and three premium leathers are also on the menu. You can also get a combination of leatherette and cloth.

Choose the Optima LX

The 2018 Kia Optima LX comes in aurora black pearl, sparkling silver, silky silver, and titanium silver. Power-heated side mirrors and 16-inch silver-finish alloy wheels are standard. The interiors for these cars have black cloth seats with black doors and dash. Metallic trim and a white headliner provide accents. If you prefer horizon blue, ebony black, Sangria, or snow white pearl, you have two interior color options. These exterior colors can come with either black cloth or beige cloth. Beige upholstery is matched to two-tone beige/black dash and doors. The tilt-telescopic steering wheel has mounted tabs for cruise control, hands-free phone, and the audio system. Equipment includes a 3.5-inch thin film LCD display, dual 12V outlets and an auxiliary jack. The backseat passengers enjoy a folding armrest with cupholders. Other details include front/rear bottle holders and front-seatback pockets. A white headliner completes the look.

Go Sporty with the Optima S

The 2018 Kia Optima S trim edition adds platinum graphite and Remington red to the color palette. It also comes in ebony black, horizon blue and snow white pearl. The Sport trim wears a special front bumper with chrome accents, a metallic front grille, a rear spoiler, 17-inch wheels and LED fog lights. All S interiors come with sport chairs. The upholstery combines black cloth covers and leatherette bolsters. The driver picks up a leather-clad steering wheel and a 10-way power seat. Shoppers may also choose a sunroof.

Enjoy the Optima LX 1.6T

Offered in four exterior colors, this edition wears a gloss black grille and 16-inch gray-finish wheels. The interior has black cloth seats with a black dash, white headliner and two-tone pillars. Like the LX and S models, it has a seven-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple Carplay.

Step up with the Optima EX

With more luxuries on the 2018 Kia Optima EX, it is no surprise that it also comes with leather upholstery. The basic color interior choice for this edition is a rich black leather with exteriors in platinum graphite, ebony black, horizon blue or sangria. It features a black dash and doors with a white headliner. You can choose horizon blue, ebony black, snow white pearl or titanium silver exteriors and get a second leather option. The gray seats are matched to a two-tone gray and black interior. With the black or white exterior colors, you can also choose the beige and black two-tone design with handsome beige leather seats. The upscale design is enhanced by contemporary wood trim on the door panels and center console. Kia adds USB 2.1 charging ports and a rear-facing 12V power outlet to the center console. Carpeted floor mats complement the interior color scheme. The exterior has handle pocket lights to welcome you at night. LED running lights and rear LED combination lights contribute to a premium look.

Race with the Optima SX

Ready for fun? You will favor the Optima SX with black sport leather and red-stitch accents. The D-shape Sport steering wheel has paddle shifters to make the most of the advanced engine. The cabin trim is satin chrome. A panoramic sunroof opens up the design to natural light. Fashion choices include leatherette to soften the door and dash. Silver stitching adds an upscale accent. A headliner in tricot black fabric is another menu item exclusively offered on the SX edition. The palette of exterior colors includes eight hues. Black sport side sills, sport bumpers, and a rear spoiler dress up the look. Red front and rear brake calipers add yet another sporty touch. The 18-inch wheels come in a standard machined finish or an optional chrome.

Soar with the SX Limited Package

With the Optima SX Limited Package, Kia kicks it up another notch. Quilted leather insets are matched with smooth leather bolsters. You can get a rich brown Aubergine Nappa leather with an exterior in ebony black, snow white pearl, or titanium silver. Black Nappa leather can paired with an ebony black or horizon blue exterior. Ebony black, snow white pearl, titanium silver and sangria can be matched with an Ivory Nappa leather option.
