Three Engine Options Make the Kia Optima an Optimal Choice in Saco

While some vehicles pigeon-hole you into a specific set of specifications, the Kia Optima gives you more power to choose your driving experience. Three engine options put the power of choice in your hands, so you can balance power, fuel economy, and price in a way that best fits your unique lifestyle. Bill Dodge Kia of Saco can help you choose the perfect model, or you can read below to learn a little more about what they have available.

The standard engine in the Kia Optima is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder power plant that offers a good mix of power and efficiency. With 185 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque, you’ll have plenty of gusto available to power you through both city and highway journeys with swiftness and ease. A six-speed automatic transmission with Sportmatic® sports shifter ensures satisfying power delivery at any speed, and gives you the option to control your shift points when you want to get a little more hands-on. Fuel economy is excellent at an EPA-estimated 25 mpg city and 35 mpg highway, so taking that extra road trip doesn’t have to feel like a guilty pleasure.

If you’d prefer added efficiency over power, choose the 1.6-liter turbocharged engine available in the Optima EX. While power is reduced to 178 horsepower, torque actually gets a lift to 195 pound-feet to give you better acceleration. Fuel economy is phenomenal at an EPA-estimated 27 mpg city and 37 mpg highway, so you can have the perfect blend of accelerating power and long-range fuel economy with this combination.

For the Saco driver who values performance above all else, the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine found in the Optima SX is the perfect choice for you. With 245 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, you’ll have a hard time wiping the smile off your face whenever you put your foot down, and at up to 30 mpg highway you can still enjoy your weekend joyrides without breaking the bank.
