The 2013 Optima SX Limited combines style and luxury.

This upscale and fully-loaded sedan features a chrome-highlighted deck lid spoiler to go along with the unique designed 18-inch chrome alloy rims, displaying hints of the red-painted brake calipers.

That’s just for starters.

Under the hood is Kia’s 2.0-liter turbo gas direct injected four-cylinder engine that packs 274 horsepower and 269 pound-feet torque.

In terms of fuel efficiency, this four-door sedan is capable of getting 22 miles per gallon, city, and 34 mpg, highway. Mileage may vary based on driving habits.

Inside are heated front and rear Nappa leather seats – the front seats also cool – coupled with the black cloth headliner and pillar trims.

This top-of-the-line package also includes LED daytime running lights, electronic parking brakes, panoramic moon roof, first aid kit (tucked neatly away in a trunk-space panel) and Navigation with a backup camera and an Infinity audio system.

The Optima SXL recently arrived at Kia Country, 1515 N. Main St., Manteca, and can be seen up close in the dealership showroom.

“With the arrival of the Optima SXL, the Kia brand propels itself into a more premium class, which is what consumers have told us they want to see when walk into our showrooms,” said Tom Loveless, Kia Motors America executive vice president, in a recent statement.
