Kia Optima MPG & Engines

Different drivers require various engine configurations and your Kia Optima MPG will depend on which trim level suits you best. See what Kia Optima gas mileage you can get from the available engines below:

Kia Optima LX & S

  • 2.4L 4-Cylinder — EPA-estimated 25 mpg city/35 mpg highway

Kia Optima EX

  • 1.6L 4-Cylinder w/ Turbocharger — EPA-estimated 24 mpg city/33 mpg highway

Kia Optima SX

  • 2.0L 4-Cylinder w/ Turbocharger — EPA-estimated 21 mpg city/30 mpg highway

Fuel-Saving Features

Along with its three strong and reliable engine configuration options, the Kia Optima MPG can also be enhanced by the following fuel-saving features :

  • Front-Wheel Drive: Front-wheel drive offers notable traction on Jefferson City 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 Fort Leonard Wood 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.
