2001 Kia Optima Review

Pros

  • Competitive price, solid build quality, loaded with standard features.

Cons

  • Unproven newcomer in a tough market, V6 engine feels a bit anemic.

What's new

Kia joins the high-stakes poker game that is the midsize sedan market with the all-new Optima. Available in four- and six-cylinder models and two trim levels, the Optima offers a loaded deck of standard features, including air conditioning, side airbags, four-wheel independent suspension and power windows, locks and mirrors.
