2016 Kia Ratings, Reviews and Awards

Kia introduced new designs and significant changes for two of its models in 2016. The Optima, the brand's mid-size sedan, made people question their loyalty to carmakers such as Nissan, Honda, and Toyota starting in 2016. The reborn 2016 Optima was slightly larger than previous models and had the choice of three engines. It was similar to the revamp of its platform twin, the Hyundai Sonata, the year before. The new Optima has a retuned suspension and stiffer structure. Other notable features include more room on the interior and more space in the trunk. Also getting a makeover for 2016 was the Kia Sorento, the brand's mid-size crossover SUV. Like the Optima, it's a bit bigger and offers three engines to choose from, including a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder, a 2.4-liter four-cylinder, and a 3.3-liter V6.
