Finally, Kia carmaker offered its Optima SX Limited in dealerships available for purchase. This model is actually an improved Optima SX. Thanks to its enhanced appearance, technology, convenience and performance features, the model will be a sure success. The suggested retail price of the manufacturer for the KIA Optima SX Limited starts at $35.000. Enthusiasts had the opportunity to see it for the first time at the 2012 Chicago Motor Show.



All the power is being transferred to the road through 18-inch chrome wheels and the main features include LED lighting and exterior bright-work, red brake calipers, but also a lot of other exclusive design upgrades. The SX Limited also features rich wood grain accents and an electronic parking brake only offered for this trim level and also high-grade Nappa leather seating trim. Under the hood it hides a 2.0-liter GDI engine capable of delivering 274 horsepower and it has a fuel consumption of 22 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway.
