Kia Motors America’s redesigned 2011 Optima sedan is priced at $19,690, including shipping. The base model Optima LX features a 2.4-liter gasoline direct-injection four-cylinder engine that delivers 200hp. It is paired with a six-speed manual transmission.

What’s offered as standard on the base model include an AM/FM/CD stereo system with a three-month subscription to Sirius satellite radio, USB ports, Bluetooth wireless connectivity, a cooling glovebox and power windows and door locks. The starting price for the midlevel Optima EX trim is $23,190 including shipping.

It features 17-inch alloy wheels, leather-trimmed seats, dual-zone climate control and push-button ignition, as well as other improvements.

The EX also is available with the 2.0-liter, turbocharged GDI engine that can generate 274hp. Meanwhile, the EX turbo is priced at $25,190, including shipping. However, some might not like that Kia only offers an automatic transmission with the turbo engine.

The starting price of the high-line Optima SX is $26,690 including shipping. Offered as standard on the SX include the 2.0-liter turbo-four, 18-inch alloy wheels, high-intensity headlights and black leather seat trim.

Kia is relying on the new Optima to make the brand a more relevant competitor in the mid-sized sedan segment. For now, the brand’s current Optima accounts for only a tiny slice of the 1.7 million-unit mid-sized sedan segment, with sales of only 25,000 each year in the US. P.S.
