The designers of the Kia Optima brings a fresh new style for the 2014 model year. This updated look works both inside and out to keep the Optima looks best in class.
The inside of the 2014 Kia Optima boasts strong modern lines that mark a distinct change from the 2013 model with quality finishes that look and feel good. The technology and conveniences packages remain similar to what was offered in the 2013 model year.
Convenience and Technology
The interior changes to the Optima offer the driver a cockpit feeling. This feeling is reinforced by big gauges, a new 4.3-inch instrument panel display, and a bank of controls mounted on a center stack canted towards the driver. Also on the center stack, the eight-inch optional touchscreen screen offers the driver and front seat passenger access to the navigation, sound system, and UVO eServices.
The basic LX sound system includes an AM/FM/CD/MP3/SiriusXM system with six speakers. The Limited comes with an Infinity Premium Audio System with HD radio, eight speakers, and external amp and woofer. This upgraded audio package is optional on the EX and SX packages.
Kia’s UVO eServices come standard on the Limited edition while being optional on all other trim packages. The driver gets access to the voice command navigation system, rear camera display, backup warning system, and blind spot detection system.
Air conditioning is standard in the Kia. On the EX, SX, and Limited trim packages, the air conditioning comes with dual zone controls with center console rear vents.
Seating and Trim
The 2014 model year brings redesigned seats and distinct upgrades at each trim level.
The basic LX comes with beige or great cloth seats, six-way adjustable driver’s seat, and a rear seat with adjustable headrests and a 60/40 split. The EX offers an upgrade with standard black leather seats, a driver’s seat with ten-way power adjustment, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and indoor door handles in satin chrome. The SX keeps the upgrades of the EX and adds carbon fiber film accents, black cloth headliner, and alloy pedals.
The Limited brings three seating material options: white, gray, and black Nappa leather. This trim level includes four-way adjustable front passenger seat, heated front and rear seats, and bright chrome inside door handles. Some of these upgrades are optional on the EX and SX trim packages.
A spacious cabin is common to all trim packages. Leg room, both front and back, offer everyone a comfortable ride. The head room is generous, though the rear seat is a bit lower than the front due to the exterior roof slope. If you add an optional moon roof, the head room is a bit shorter.
The interior of the 2014 Kia Optima is the perfect mixture of modern design and luxury. If you want to experience it yourself, you need to look at the inside of a Kia yourself. Stop by Burlington Kia and see for yourself.
