Cruising Around LA in the Limited Edition 2013 Kia Optima SX

Last week was my first time going to LA and by all accounts I would need a set of wheels to get around. I’m used to taking cabs or public transportation when I travel but boy am I glad I had a car this time.  I was given a brand new Limited Edition 2013 Kia Optima SX and I loved it.

Kia Optima SXBefore driving the Optima SX, I’d never driven a Kia before, boy was I surprised. The Optima SX was fully loaded, it had everything from a GPS to panoramic sunroof. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting a Kia to be so bad ass!

Was there anything they forgot to put in this car?? This seriously, was the perfect car to travel around LA in. The Optima SX was also great on gas mileage; between being stuck in traffic and driving from one side of LA to the other, I still had a ton of fuel in the tank. It has great handling on the streets and the expressway, the ride was very smooth and relaxing. The Optima SX packs a powerful punch minus the extravagant price tag! It’s roomy enough for a family but also sporty enough for those of us who want to look and remain cool.

Stay tuned for my LA travel tips….

Thanks Kia and Drive STI!
