For those car shoppers looking for a midsize sedan with a bit more sex appeal, look no further than the 2014 Kia Optima. An updated, more aggressive front façade comes together with a beautifully sculpted rear end to create a head-turning silhouette that would make anyone happy they have to drive the kids to soccer practice.

2014 Kia Optima Interior

Kia mixes a modern design with a touch of European flair to create a unique, yet stylish interior for the 2014 Optima. Soft-touch materials are abundant, while the Limited trim levels high-quality leather adds a touch of sophistication. The Uvo interface system allows the driver to control cell phones and MP3 players with his voice, keeping the driver connected no matter what. There is plenty of space for everyone, with comfortable seats and a decent amount of headroom for any height.
