Kia has three options for mid-size sedans: the mid-size Optima, the full-size Cadenza and the K900 luxury sedan. The Optima has been updated with five different trim levels, including LX, LX 1.6T, EX, SX, and SX Limited. One cool new feature is the Smart Trunk which automatically opens when you stand in front of it with your Smart Key. A 2.0-liter engine provides plenty of power with up to 245 horsepower.
The 2016 Cadenza is similar to the 2015 model, which means that it is both bold and classic. A spacious interior features refined design that offers the luxury buyers want. It is like taking a vacation from the real world every time a person goes for a drive.
Enjoy a relaxing drive with the 2016 K900. Another luxury model from Kia, this car creates an environment perfect for relaxing. From the insulated cabin to the smooth-handling suspension, it makes arriving less important than traveling. Kia of Auburn has a large selection of all three sedans to choose from.
If you don’t need the room and fuel economy is important to you, Kia has a wide selection of compact cars. The 2016 lineup contains no less than five options in the compact category.
- Rio 5-door
- Forte Koup
None of the models have been redesigned for the 2016 year, but they all offer outstanding value and comfort with their current look. The Forte family of compact cars provides a spacious interior with many available features that are not often seen in the category. The Forte sedan comes with a 1.8-liter engine while the Koup and Forte5 include the 2.0-liter engine for more power.
The Rio has a lot to offer drivers. According to Kia.com, it comes with luxury amenities, such as push-button start and Bluetooth wireless capability. Multiple trim levels make it easier to get what you want in a car without paying for extra. Some features, such as SiriusXM satellite radio, steering wheel-mounted controls and air conditioning are standard on all models.
Deciding Between a Mid-size or Compact Car
Price is not the only difference between the Kia mid-size and compact cars. The mid-size sedans offer more room and are ideal for families or anyone who values space. Compact cars are often the choice for single drivers who want enhanced efficiency and easy maneuvering throughout congested traffic. Of course, either option comes with features that enhance the driving experience.
When deciding on whether to buy a mid-size sedan like the Cadenza or a compact car like the Rio, you want to consider more than just price. You have to plan for how it will fit your needs today and tomorrow until you are ready to buy your next new car.
