Nowadays, midsize sedans are often framed as a mature, economical option for those looking for a no-fuss means of getting around the greater Spartanburg and Greer areas. And that's all well and good, but if you're seeking excitement, there's really no much to draw your interest in the midsize sedan market. With that being said, the new Kia Optimais one of the few midsize sedans that really deserves your attention, and we'd love to show you what drivers from Simpsonville to Greenville have loved about it here at Benson Kia.

Now, if there's one thing that the new Kia Optima has consistently been praised for, it's athleticism. Sure, it's standard 181-hosepower engine is more geared towards efficiency, with an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 27 mpg city / 37 mpg highway, but when you take a look at its available powertrain options, it's clear that the new Kia Optima is a much stronger competitor than many of its rivals on the market near Shelby, SC these days.

Spring for the turbocharged 2. 0-liter inline four-cylinder engine available on trims like the Kia Optima SX and you'll command up to 245 horsepower on the open road, so the only time you'll see other midsize sedans is in your rearview mirror.

Plus, the new Kia Optima is an absolute joy to drive on the highway thanks in large part to smart safety systems and technologies to mitigate distractions and hazards. From blind-spot collision warning to Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go, the Kia Optima deals with those little nagging annoyances so you can focus solely on the simple pleasure of driving.

With its generous power and even more generous loadout of features, it's no wonder that the new Kia Optima is one of the most popular new Kia cars in store here at our Spartanburg, SC Kia dealership. And if you're interested in spending some time in the driver's seat of this athletic and innovative new midsize sedan, feel free to drop in to Benson Kia for a test drive with the new Kia Optima today.
