Kia/optima style and performance.

My first Kia/optima was purchased in 2013, I love the performance, exterior style is excellent and the warranty was one of the best I have ever had. I just purchased the 2019 Kia/optima and it is just as reliable and the style is sporty and all the new features are excellent.
