    Just bought the new 2018 KIA Optima SXL in beautiful Horizon Blue with Limited package. Very rich and shiny medium deep blue. Love the color! Love the car. The 2018 is more refined than my 2015 SXL was. Quieter and even nicer on the interior, plus love all the new tech.

    Last Saturday at my kids' recitals at Pattonville HS (St. Louis, MO area), saw a blue 2011-13 SX(L possibly) parked near mine. It had the sunroof, chrome accents on the footwells and side mirrors, red calipers, and red K5 badging. She was a beauty!
