With 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque, the 2.4-liter’s output is on par with the four-cylinder engines in competitors such as the Honda Accord and the Mazda 6. Paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, it pulled our 3399-pound Optima EX test car from zero to 60 mph in a respectable 7.5 seconds, and it returned 25 mpg over 800 miles of mixed driving. The engine generally is quiet and unobtrusive—until you mat the accelerator, and at higher engine speeds, the sound skews toward gravelly and unrefined. The engine also sometimes miscommunicated with the transmission, with quick throttle inputs occasionally prompting a stumble and a delayed downshift.
It’s Got the Goods
This is perhaps overstating the powertrain’s foibles, but however minor the issues, they’re what keep the 2.4 behind the Optima’s better turbo engines. Luckily, every Optima has a lot to offer elsewhere, with a handsome exterior and an understated but highly functional interior. In EX trim, the Optima is ideally equipped for its $25, 840 base price, with dual-zone automatic climate control, USB and 12-volt power outlets front and rear, leather upholstery, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a power driver’s seat with memory function, a backup camera, and a 5.0-inch touchscreen display.
Our test car also had the $3700 EX Premium package, which adds a panoramic sunroof, ventilated front seats, a power passenger seat, navigation with an 8.0-inch touchscreen, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and LED interior lighting. Another $1200 for the EX Premium Audio package (Harman/Kardon surround-sound system, heated outboard rear seats, and rear window shades) brought the grand total to a still-reasonable $30, 740.What are canonical urls?
