Kia Optima Turbo 2011 Test Drive & Car Review – RoadflyTV with Emme Hall

The 2011 Kia Optima is another visually stunning product from the designers at Kia. It’s been totally redesigned for 2011, and is easily one of the most recognizable, well-proportioned, and daring cars on the road today.

Kia was kind enough to send us a fully loaded Optima SX Turbo, which sported nearly every option offered, as well as the top-shelf 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder that pumps out 274 hp and 269 lb.-ft of torque while achieving a stunning 34mpg on the highway.

It impressed us with great reflexes, surprising power, and a high level of standard equipment including heated rear seats and a cooled glove box. Watch host Emme Hall’s thorough and lively review of this overachieving sedan and share your thoughts!
