Engine specifications and gas mileage of the 2019 Kia Optima 

There’s no slacking to speak of when you consider the amount of smart power that the 2019 Optima is hiding under its hood. Base models of the line house a 2.4-liter DOHC Inline 4 engine, which can produce 185 horsepower at 6,000 RPM and 178 pound-feet of torque output at 4,000 RPM. This also equates to a fuel efficiency of 25 miles per gallon in the city, 35 miles per gallon on the highway, and 29 miles per gallon combined.
