Kia Optima Turbo provides that much needed power boost

The 2011 Kia Optima, which already has won rave reviews and many customers for its affordabe pricing, uncluttered design, impressive fuel efficiency and premium content, is now introduced with Optima Turbo that will take the success level of the Kia Optima to another level. Bale Kia, your nearest Arkansas Kia dealer in Little Rock, proudly annonuces the introduction of Kia Optima Turbo, which incidentally is the first ever Turbocharged Kia to be sold in the U.S.

The 2011 Kia Optima Turbo is offered in both EX and SX trims, with the LX trim offering the same high standard levels of style and equipment found on the naturally aspirated Optima EX, including features like 17-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, heated outside mirrors, eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support,  an AM/FM/CD/MP3/Sat sound system with a complimentary three-month subscription to SIRIUS Satellite Radio and USB port, Bluetooth connectivity, push-button ignition among other features.
The premium Optima Turbo SX is packed with features such as HID headlights/LED rear combination lights, a rear lip spoiler and unique front grille, sculpted side sills, bigger 18-inch wheels, paddle shifters, a model-specific interior, Kia’s Supervision meter cluster with LCD display, and more. A number of well-thought-out option packages are available as well, allowing drivers to add more premium content, including a navigation system with rearview backup camera, heated/cooled front seats, a panoramic sunroof, an eight-speaker premium Infinity sound system, heated rear seats and a heated steering wheel.

However, the biggest boost to the 2011 Kia Optima Turbo is the boost in power.  The forced-induction 2.0-liter I4 engine leverages a twin-scroll turbocharger and gasoline direct injection, mated to an advanced six-speed automatic transmission with Kia’s Sportmatic clutchless shifting functionality, to deliver a stout 274 hp and 269 lb.-ft. of torque.  The car can still easily deliver an EPA line of 22 mpg city/34 mpg highway which transalates into more horsepower, more torque and better fuel efficiency.

The 2011 Kia Optima Turbo does not fall short on safety features as to compromise the additonal power as the car, as is the case with the Entire Kia lineup, packs a full complement of standard safety equipment, ranging from six airbags to both traction and stability control to the automaker’s Brake Assist System. 
If this was not enough, Kia also has dished out the Kia ultimate warranty package, which the customers will never say never. The warranty coverage that includes a 10-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty, a five-year/60,000-mile limited basic warranty, anti-perforation coverage that extends five years/100,000 miles, a five-year/60,000-mile roadside assistance plan and to top it all, the starting price of the 2011 Kia Optima Tubo is just $24,495.
