Kia US has unveiled the 2015 Optima midsize sedan. It is built at Kia's West Point, Ga., facility (KMMG) and features next-generation of UVO eServices and a number of subtle interior refinements meant to improve ergonomics and offer a more premium experience.

As before, the new Optima is available in LX, EX, SX, SX Turbo and SX-Limited trims. The UVO eServices is available as an option on the EX, SX, SX Turbo and standard on the SX-Limited. The new feature include Geo Fencing, Driving Score, Speed Alerts and Curfew Alerts.

Other innovations include repositioning the wheel-mounted buttons, new brushed bezels for the D-shaped steering wheel coming with SX-Limited and also a new black cloth option for the LX.

Outside, the 2015 Optima is now available with a Smokey Blue (late availability) metallic paint, and Sparkling Silver and Platinum Graphite replace Bright Silver and Metal Bronze, respectively.  The acoustic laminated windshield, found last year only on SX-Limited, is offered across the Optima lineup for 2015.

The engine range includes two powerful Theta II powerplants: a 2.4 liter GDI four-cylinder and a 2.0 liter GDI turbo.

The 2.4-liter GDI engine is available on LX, EX and SX models while the more robust 2.0-liter turbo GDI engine is offered exclusively in the SX and SX Limited.

Each engine choice is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission featuring Sportmatic shifting.  Drive Mode Select (DMS), which offers owners a customizable driving experience by adjusting transmission shift points and steering weight, remains exclusive to the SX Turbo and SX Limited.
