Ever since the all-new Kia Optima rolled into Kia of Cheyenne in 2011, it’s continuously impressed both drivers and auto enthusiasts alike. Eye-catching style and precision handling are just a few of the most talked about features of the third-generation Optima. These too, are the very things that helped Kia redefined itself as a brand – no longer just a manufacturer of economy cars, Kia now boasts a lineup of styled, top-performing, super-efficient, and always affordable models.

But that has stopped the folks at Kia from turning it up yet another notch. That said, if you’re looking for a car with just a bit more edge, you’ll be mighty impressed by the Kia Optima Limited.

Kia took the 2013 Optima, and then they touched it up with chrome from the black gloss mesh grille to the rear spoiler and dual exhausts. Oh, and the 18-inch wheels. Then they added LED daytime running lights, and eye-catching red brake calipers. To keep it looking as sleek as possible, Kia only offers the Optima SXL in three colors – Snow White Pearl, Ebony Black, and Titanium Silver.

Slip into the driver’s seat and you’ll feel like you’re in a much pricier car, thanks to leather seats that are heated and cooled, a panoramic sunroof, leather trim on the doors and dash, and wood accents throughout. That’s to hardly mention the Navigation system with Sirius Traffic, rearview camera and push-button start.

Don’t worry, it boasts performance to match the crisp exterior lines and cushy interior, by way of a 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder GDI engine pumping out 274 horsepower. It easily out-performs other four-cylinders just like it, and we might so far as to say it beats some competitive six-cylinder sedans. With a six-speed Sportmatic transmission, it’s also extremely efficient – performance junkies get their fix by way of paddle shifters.

But then, it doesn’t really matter what we tell you about the Optima Limited, because it’s really best experienced in person. Stop by the Kia of Cheyenne showroom at 2999 Nationway, Cheyenne, WY 82001, where you’re welcome to take a test drive of the Kia Optima or any of the other new Kia models that catch your eye.
