Fuel-Saving Features

In addition to its three fuel-efficient engines, the new Kia Optima also offers the following features for higher EPA estimates:

  • Front-Wheel Drive: Front-wheel drive offers notable traction on Caldwell roads, but uses less gas than all- or four-wheel drive systems.
  • Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (CVVT): CVVT helps improve fuel economy ratings during your Meridian commutes by changing the timing of valve lift events.
  • Available 7-Speed Dual-Clutch Transmission: Standard on the Optima EX, this type of transmission offers greater fuel-efficiency than automatics and manuals, thanks to its two separate clutches.
