2018 Kia Optima

Exhilarating, inside and out - that's the 2018 Kia Optima. A thrilling Optima driving experience begins before you start the engine. The moment you slide behind the wheel, you discover a quieter, more spacious cabin loaded with the latest available amenities. The perfect environment for pure driving pleasure. The driver-side console in the 2018 Optima features a clean, horizontal design that streamlines ergonomic and helps create a greater sense of space. So open the door of the Optima and you'll find a spacious, modern interior enhanced with bold accents, soft-touch surfaces and fine, premium stitching, all of which come together to create a sanctuary of quiet comfort and craftsmanship for you and your passengers.


2018 Volkswagen Passat

Live midsize to the fullest behind the wheel of the 2018 Volkswagen Passat. With its refined styling, the Passat has what it takes to make you rethink the family car while putting the "fun" into "functional". On the outside LED headlights with LED Daytime Running Lights help illuminate your drive as well as highlight your sense of style. Plus, the available Passat R-Line trim steps up the bold and sporty attitude for even the most sophisticated drivers. With a sporty front end and rear bumper, 19-inch wheels, and performance design cues, you may notice an increase in double takes. While on the inside you can find wood and textured aluminum appearance trim to give the Passat interior an added boost of premium amenities.
