View Optima Inventory

The 2015 Kia Optima has been a popular midsize sedan in the Kia lineup at Willowbrook Kia for quite some time. That being said, we can’t wait to add the 2016 Kia Optima to our inventory this fall. Westmont, Woodridge, and Countryside customers will certainly appreciate its modern technology, exceptional performance, and updated design. Read more for an overview of what you can expect on this exciting upcoming model.


Strong Performance

With a choice of three powertrains, Westmont, Woodridge, and Countryside drivers will be able to find the power and performance required in a sedan. The three powerful engine options offered on the 2016 Optima include:

  • The standard 2.4L, 4-cylinder engine that generates 185 hp and 178 Ib-ft of torque.
  • An optional 2.0L, 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that is capable of an impressive 247 hp and 260 Ib-ft of torque.
  • Coupled with Kia’s new 7-speed dual clutch transmission, the 1.6L, 4-cylinder engine can give off 178 hp and 195 Ib-ft of torque.

A Sophisticated Design

A number of design changes allow the Optima to be more luxurious and sophisticated than ever before. On the vehicle’s exterior, Westmont, Woodridge, and Countryside shoppers will notice an updated tiger-nose grille, and chrome trim around the windows, headlamps, grille and even the wheels. Kia’s new bi-functional HID headlights that are available with Dynamic Bending Lamps and High Beam assist are also included.
Additionally, the 2016 Optima is the first Kia model to be built with a panoramic sunroof support structure that is made of carbon-fiber reinforced plastic to lower the sedan’s center of gravity and reduce weight.

Noteworthy Technology

A number of cutting-edge tech features help make the 2016 Kia Optima one-of-a-kind. Some of these technologies include:

  • Infinity Premium Sound System: Equipped with 14-speakers, QuantumLogic surround technology, and Clari-Fi music restoration, the available Infinity Premium Sound System will make your time on the road more enjoyable.
  • AndroidTM Auto and Apple CarPlay: AndroidTM Auto and Apple CarPlay are Kia’s first ever smartphone integration systems. With these systems, you can easily control navigation, check your social media, change your music, and so much more.
  • Updated UVO Connectivity: Kia’s UVO connectivity system will be equipped with four features that have never been offered on previous Optima models. These features are curfew alert, speed alert, geo-fencing, and driving score.
  • Autonomous Emergency Braking: This advanced safety system can bring the Optima to a complete stop to reduce damage or avoid a potential accident.
