Kia Optima Columbus IN

Loaded is Standard in the Kia Optima

Are you looking to upgrade your commute in Columbus IN? The fuel-efficient Kia Optima comes loaded with standard features that you would pay a lot more for in other cars. Stop by Ray Skillman Auto Center and let our Kia specialists show you how much more entertaining your commute can be.

Loaded with Style

A smartly-contoured body is complemented by Kia’s signature tiger-nose front grille and sporty alloy wheels. Slip into the cockpit and you’ll find a control center that puts you in command. Enjoy a perfect moonlit night when you slide open the available panoramic sunroof.

Loaded with Sass

Available 1.6L or 2.0L turbo-charged engines take the ho-hum out of your daily commute. Pop the shifter into Sportmatic mode and get the thrill and control of a manual transmission without the awkwardness of dealing with three pedals. Choose Eco, Sport, or Comfort driving styles and let the Kia Optima take care of the details. Test-drive an Optima today and see which driving style fits you best.

Loaded with Comfort

Available heated and ventilated front seats are nicely bolstered and hold you securely in place. A leather-wrapped, flat-bottom steering wheel adds a touch of luxury with paddle shifters, cruise controls, audio, and phone controls right at your fingertips. Sound absorbing front door windows keep the traffic noise to a minimum. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatible with Bluetooth and a USB jack mean your playlists and contacts are always available.

Loaded with Smarts

There’s an app for your Optima. UVO Link lets you lock and unlock your doors or adjust your climate control settings on your smartphone, even if you’re away from your car. With an 8” touchscreen, UVO Link can also help with navigation and, if needed, request roadside assistance. The available Smart Welcome detects the presence of your Smart Key nearby and unfolds outside mirrors and turns on inside door lights for you. Stand directly behind your car with the Smart Key and your trunk opens automatically.

Loaded with Safety

Kia doesn’t believe that safety should be optional. That’s why Optima models come with standard rear camera display and rear cross traffic collision and forward collision warnings, blind spot and lane departure warnings, park distance warning, and driver attention warning. On dark, winding roads, the available Dynamic Bending Light adjusts the direction of your headlights based on your speed and steering angle, making it easier to see what’s ahead of you.

What a wonderful experience! Both the sales person and finance officer were simply wonderful. It was good to see customer service alive and well! They took the time to evaluate my lifestyle and needs before matching me with a vehicle. Their years of experience were evident. I was never pressured at all. I strongly recommend Ray Skillman if you are even remotely interested in buying a vehicle. I wish I could give both of those gentlemen a bonus!
