The 2018 Kia Optima is available in five trim levels, the LX, S, LX 1.6T, EX, and SX.  These five trim levels provide 2018 Optima owners with powerful and efficient drivetrains as well as ample interior cargo and passenger space.  Even though each trim level has the same 104.8 cubic feet of total passenger space it is how each trim level uses that space that differentiates them.  Find out what’s inside the cabin and underneath the hood of each trim level of the 2018 Kia Optima right here.
