Does anyone know why the 2010 2.4L Optima makes 175hp vs the 2011 2.4L Optima that makes 192hp. Like what parts/components are different in 2011 thats not in 2010 that causes a significant increase in hp with same litre-age? Both base model LX

2011 is when the complete redesign of the Optima was done.

This was when they brought the designer Peter Shreyer from Audi over to Kia.

In 2011 the all new completely redesigned 2011 Optima was released.

Other than the name "Kia Optima" I don't think it shared anything with the older 2010 model.
