At an MSRP of $22,500, the LX is the base trim of the 2018 Kia Optima. Some of the exciting standard features in this trim include an aerodynamic design, touchscreen display and heated outside mirrors, as well as all the same great safety features as the other trim levels.

At an MSRP of $23,500, the S trim of the 2018 Optima is one level above the base trim. With this upgraded trim level comes all the features of the LX trim, plus a rear spoiler, available panoramic sunroof, LED fog lights and other added convenience features.

What Comes with the LX Turbo Trim? 

At an MSRP of $24,300, the LX Turbo trim is the third trim level, above the LX and S trims. This trim level shares almost every quality with the base trim of the 2018 Optima, except for one big difference. Rather than a 2.0L engine, it has a 1.6L Turbocharged engine, and 7-speed manual transmission, which gives it both increased torque and fuel efficiency. 

What Comes with the EX Trim? 

At an MSRP of $25,600, the EX trim level is second highest trim level for the 2018 Kia Optima. With this trim level comes all the same features as the S trim, plus added features like an available premium surround sound system, automatic emergency braking, electronic parking brake and much more.
