Waukegan, IL ( July 27, 2011 - Consumers shopping for a Chicago Kia Soul may have become more attracted to the model after seeing an NBA player jump over an Optima to make a slam-dunk. After many replays and cheers from the crowd, sales team members at Kia dealers in Gurnee were happy to see the model make such a significant appearance at a very popular event.
Los Angeles Clipper Blake Griffin helped the Kia Optima make a big splash at the 2011 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest when he jumped over the model to slam-dunk the ball and win the contest. When the crowd first saw the model roll out on the basketball court, many spectators couldn't believe that it was a Kia. Kia Soul owners, on the other hand, might have recognized the sleek style from the beginning.

Family men who are also basketball men may have seen the Optima on their TV screen that night, but may not have realized it was an Optima. After the initial shock wore off, dads nationwide paid a bit more attention to the Kia name - a result that sales team members at Gurnee Kia dealers like Classic Kia were very satisfied with.

According to a review by Tommy Grafman at, the Kia Optima is a "great car, with high-end stylish looks and great fuel economy." With a 2.4L direct-injection engine that produces 200 horsepower and achieves a fuel economy of 24 city/34 hwy mpg, it's understandable how the Optima made such a lasting impression on Grafman. Interested consumers are encouraged to visit their favorite Kia dealer such as Classic Kia to test drive the Optima as soon as possible.
