2014 Kia Optima US pricing announced

Article by Christian A., on September 23, 2013

The 2014 Kia Optima was treated to slight updates to keep up with the swiftly changing family sedan class. In a statement, Kia revealed that the 2014 Kia Optima has a base price of $22,300 (which includes destination costs) for the LX model with a six-speed automatic transmission. This is $150 higher than the 2013 model.

The Optima is already a very stylish midsize sedan but Kia gave it a subtly redesigned front and rear fascias together with new alloy wheels. Its interior also got several revisions, including new brushed metal, black high gloss, and chrome trim all through the interior. It has been fitted with a bigger 4.2-inch LCD information screen for the gauge cluster. The SX Turbo models get a revised D-shaped steering wheel.

There are four trim levels available for the 2014 Kia Optima. At the bottom is the LX model that’s priced at $22,300. The price tag on the EX model says that it is $24,700 ($250 more expensive than the current model). The EX features a standard keyless entry and pushbutton start system aside from its previously standard features such as leather seats and dual-zone climate control. Even if the SX model was formerly only offered with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the 2014 SX comes with the same 200hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder as LX and EX models.

The SX, which costs $26,050 SX, comes with a sport-tuned suspension, a set of 18-inch wheels, LED taillights, paddle shifters, and metal pedals. The 2014 SX Turbo model, with a starting price of $28,000, features HID headlights as well as the 274 hp 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine.

The range-topping SX Limited trim has a starting price of $37,100 and is equipped with a set of special 18-inch chrome wheels and chrome trim, power folding mirrors, a panoramic sunroof, Nappa leather, and navigation as standard equipment. The optional packages available for the 2014 model are generally the same as the outgoing model. However, Kia adds a blind spot detection system to the $2000 Technology Package on EX and SX Turbo models as well as the Premium Technology Package on the SX model that costs $5150.
