Redesigned last year, the mid-size, front-wheel-drive Optima sedan carries through into 2007 with both four- and six-cylinder models, a good-sized 14.8 cubic foot trunk and one of the roomiest cabins in its segment.  Standard safety equipment includes front and front seat-mounted side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags, active front headrests and a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). Four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with Brake Assist, stability and traction control and Brake Assist are available as a packaged option. Drivetrain-wise, the standard 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine produces 161 horsepower while the optional 2.7-liter V-6 is good for 185. A five-speed automatic transmission with Sportmatic manual shift capability is standard on most Optima models. An improved, smoother shifting five-speed manual transmission is standard on the base LX four-cylinder model, which also comes standard with  cruise control, keyless entry and alarm, manual tilt and telescopic steering column, audio system controls on the steering wheel and floor mats. The LX V-6 model adds dual exhaust outlets and alloy wheels.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
