Plus, even though there's so much information about every model available to drivers, having to sift through all that information to make an informed decision can feel overwhelming! But, we're here to help!

We create these model research pages so that drivers can see and learn about some of the most popular models today and their key specifications and features. For this exercise, we're going to be looking at the 2018 Kia Optima, one of the most popular midsize cars today.
