2013 Kia Optima SX Limited

This is a sponsored post but all opinions are our own!!!!

Last weekend was me and Melinda’s 12th wedding anniversary and we got a chance to get a kid-free weekend away with a nice trip to the beach in OCean City, NJ and we got to travel in style in the 2013 Kia Optima SX Limited.  This car to me is what I call luxury as it had all the bells and whistles like leather seats, heated and cooled front seats, heated rear seats,  panoramic sunroof and so many more options.

The 2013 Kia Optima SX Limited was super fun to drive.  The pickup was incredible and that was because of the turbocharged engine.  Melinda and I would go out for drives just to get the Kia on the road and that is saying a lot because I hate driving most of the time, LOL.  I really liked the size of the Optima from front to back.  The leg room was great which I look for due to me being 6’3.  The truck was another thing I was impressed with.  We loaded it with a trip to the grocery store as well as BJ’s Wholesale and had plenty of room in the trunk.

Some of my favorite features of the Kia Optima SX Limited were the rear view camera, cooled leather seats, navigation system and satellite radio. When it comes to cars I am very hard to please but I will say that this car had so many features that it was feature overload for me.  Like I mentioned to me this car yells luxury  but if you want to find out for yourself head to your local Kia dealer and see for yourself.
