2018 Kia Optima Overview: Which Kia Optima Trim Has a Sunroof?
The 2018 Kia Optima SX comes standard with a panoramic sunroof, and the S and EX models offer the sunroof as an option. The sunroof is not available on the LX model. The Optima provides a large sunroof – the next closest thing to a convertible. While providing plenty of fresh air and natural light, the Optima’s sunroof can help save the expense and complexity of a foldaway top. It features a power sunshade for added convenience.
The base engine on the LX is a 2.4-liter I-4 outputting 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque matched to a 6-speed automatic transmission. You can opt for the Optima LX 1.6T with a 1.6-liter turbo-4 with 178-horsepower, 195 lb-ft and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic, accompanied by a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat and leather-wrapped gear-shift knob and steering wheel. Standard LX comes with an UVO infotainment system featuring a 7-inch display, 6 speakers, Sirius satellite radio, USB and aux inputs, Bluetooth, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Other standard items include heated, power-adjustable outside mirrors, keyless entry and start, gloss black front grille, three driver modes (Sport, Eco and Normal), rearview camera, air conditioning, and power lumbar support for the driver’s seat. Safety features include Hill Start Assist Control, Tire Pressure Monitoring System, Vehicle Stability Management, Electronic Stability Control, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane Change Assist, Blind Spot Detection and Rear Parking Assist.
Optima S trim is a new choice for 2018. It features the 2.4-liter engine, 17-inch alloy wheels, dark metallic front grille, a rear spoiler and a sporty front bumper with chrome accents. In addition, you get a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with sport black cloth and leatherette bolsters, LED front fog lights and LED sport rear combination lamps.
Moving up to the EX adds leather seating (heated in the front row), 12-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with memory, power-folding outside mirrors, door handle pocket lights, remote opening trunk, LED running lights, dual-zone automatic temperature control and wood grain accent trim.
