New Kia Optima at Tyler Automotive Kia near South Bend, IN

A standout in the crowded midsize sedan segment, the 2015 Kia Optima touts a surprisingly sophisticated design, a smooth, quiet ride and able driving dynamics. It's the best-selling Kia in the U.S. For 2015, the Kia Optima gets some updates to its optional Uvo telematics system and a few minor changes to trim levels. The SX Limited trim level is now called the SXL. Read on for more information, and if you have any questions, call us (888) 815-2330, or visit our showroom located at 1810 South 11th Street in Niles, Michigan.

Powering the Kia Optima

Every 2015 Kia Optima is front-wheel drive. The LX, EX and SX come standard with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 192 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque. A 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 274 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque is available on the SX and standard on the SXL. All models come with a six-speed automatic transmission. The Optima's Traction Control system also provides extra support to the driver's ability to maintain control over the vehicle when on difficult roads. If road conditions lead to a loss of control, an Electronic Stability Control system will activate and work with the Optima's  brakes to mitigate over or understeering. The Optima's Speed Sensing Steering feature assists in improving the vehicle's handling by changing the steering wheel's responsiveness based on its speed. The 2015 Kia Optima rides comfortably without isolating you from the environment, although the car's numb steering detracts from the driving experience when the road gets twisty.

The 2015 Optima's Design

The 2015 Kia Optima is a midsize sedan that comes in LX, EX, SX and SXL trim levels. From its cross-hatch front grille and long sweptback headlight housing, to the red brake calipers on the SX-T trim, the Optima looks like it's going fast even when it's parked. There is a duality about the Optima sedan for 2015, speaking to both luxury and performance all while masking its true nature to serve duty as a humble family sedan. Inside the 2015 Kia Optima, you'll find a distinctly modern, European-influenced design, as well as good overall interior quality and an abundance of soft-touch materials. Standard safety features on the 2015 Kia Optima include four-wheel antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control, side airbags and side curtain airbags. A rearview camera is available, as are rear parking sensors, rear cross-traffic alert and a blind-spot monitoring system. The optional upgraded Uvo telematics system (on the EX and above) includes roadside assistance, collision notification and driver restrictions and tracking for secondary drivers.


The 2015 Kia Optima has evocative styling and an impressive set of features. Come take a test drive of the 2015 Optima at Tyler Automotive Kia near South Bend, Indiana.
