Boosted Bruiser - Spinout

Turbocharged Kia Optima pounds out 274 hp

Dec 21, 2010

The '11 Optima's available turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four will hit the scene with 274 hp and 269 ft-lbs of torque. The good news is the 2.0-liter four can be paired with the midgrade EX or top-level SX trims. The bad news is the turbo four's transmission of choice is a 6-speed automatic exclusively - yep, no manual is offered.

The SX looks the parts and has the goods to impress, including sport-tuned suspension, black front brake calipers, LED taillights and a more aggressive exterior with a trunk lip spoiler and sculpted side sills.
