The 2013 Kia Optima was named International Car of the Year by Road & Travel Magazine, giving further accolades to one of the most popular cars of the year.

2013 Kia Optima InventoryCourtney Caldwell, Editor in Chief the Road & Travel Magazine wrote a flattering review of the 2013 Kia Optima, mostly focusing on the car’s impressive appearance.

She talked about the striking presence of her pearl-white test model, which was often mistaken for a Jaguar or BMW before gawkers strolled around to the front to see the Kia logo.

The beauty of the 2013 Kia Optima isn’t limited to the exterior. Caldwell also wrote that the “beautiful black and white Nappa leather trim interior was surprisingly stunning upon opening the door. Not only elegant and upscale in appearance but also spurring sensations of a sexy sports car.”

Also noted in the review was the 2013 Optima’s impressive 2.0L four-cylinder engine which offers power and acceleration “for escaping tailgaters, road-ragers or highway hogs.”

The 2013 Kia Optima has a large supply of gadgets that impressed the reviewers, including Sirius satellite radio and a steering wheel with paddle shifters.

Inside and out, the 2013 Kia Optima is a car built to amaze, with a price tag that offers luxury and sport-car driving for a fraction of the competition. “Speaking of cost, if the 2013 Kia Optima SX with all its goodies sounds like a rev-raising rock car boasting a $60K price tag, you’d be wrong,” Caldwell wrote.
