What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than to rent a hot vehicle to match you and your babe’s fly? The brand new 2016 Kia Optima is literally luxury for half the price tag. I got the wonderful opportunity to give this beauty a test drive and feature in my Wig Lookbook. I was so blown away with the upgraded features, comfort and style the Optima provided that I thought I’d let you guys in on a few of my favorite features.

Hopping straight into the specs:

Make: Kia

Model: 2016 Optima SX Limited

Color: Snow White Pearl


Kia definitely payed close attention to comfort, style and modern day features with this new release. You can find everything from a Built in Wireless charging system, a smart trunk that releases without the push of a button, Heated steering wheel complemented with rear and front heated seats! That’s right, although the weather isn’t cooperating you can definitely stay warm on your chilly Valentine's night out. Double dating? Your guests will enjoy the convenience and comfort of heated seats, super cool panoramic sunroof and rear charging ports!

During this shoot, I had to make a few necessary outfit changes. The rear blinds allowed privacy not only from the sunrise but for a quick outfit change as well! For someone on the go like myself, I literally live out of my car. This has to be one of my favorite small but absolutely convenient details as I often find myself changing on the go for different events!


Of course; just as many 2015+ car models you’ll find the standard Navigation System, Blind Spot Detection Systems, Smart Cruise Control, Bluetooth and Push to Start features. Kia took comfort and convenience to the next level by adding in Memory Driver Seats and Outside Mirror Position as well as a super cool Surround View Monitor.


The  Memory Driver Seats are great for couples who share a vehicle as it detects exactly who is in the driver seat and automatically adjusts your seat to the height and distance of your comfort based on your preset settings! No more pulling up your seat after your husband borrows the car!

Last but not least the Surround View Monitor literally gives you a bird's eye view of your vehicle's position. It’s like back up cam 2.0 only better! You can become a parallel parking pro overnight and fit into tight spots with ease.

I had such an amazing time filming this look-book video and sharing my creative ideas with you guys! This has to be one of my favorite Vehicle Test Drives! Special thank you to KIA for the courtesy ride.

Be sure to checkout KIA for your next car purchase or even your next day trip!
