(2001 model shown)

Optima

The mid-size Optima sedan shares platforms and powertrains with Hyundai's Sonata, but carries specific styling touches. It offers only relatively modest changes for 2005. The standard 138-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine delivers modest acceleration, while an available 2.7-liter V-6 provides a more-pleasing 170 horses. Both engines can be mated to either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic gearbox. Four-wheel-disc brakes are standard (ABS is optional), along with front side airbags, a tilt steering wheel, rear defroster, power locks, mirrors and windows and a cassette stereo. The top EX model further includes a premium audio system, cruise control, keyless entry, a power driver's seat 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.
