Turn Heads While Keeping Your Family Safe

The 2019 Kia Optima receives a show-stopping new exterior in addition to a suite of upgraded Advanced Driver Assistant Systems (ADAS) that comes standard. If you were to poll the average American, they would be very unlikely to place the Optima in a sports sedan category… we beg to differ. Drivers can choose between four unique drive modes making driving in any condition a breeze.

Some of the most notable features of the 2019 Kia Optima include:

  • Both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay
  • Available Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid models
  • Spacious cabin that boasts seating for five
  • Signature tiger-nose grille
  • LED headlights
  • Wireless Charging

Kia did not skimp on the safety features in the 2019 Kia Optima. The frame is made from Advanced High Strength Steel, and extra care is taken to ensure the sixteen core stress areas are reinforced. All together this creates a stronger body structure leading to better driving dynamics. The Traction Control System placed in the Optima is designed to eliminate wheel spin when a driver is accelerating.

We all know hard braking can wear on our vehicle and contribute to a shorter lifespan for the car. Kia has considered this and placed Electronic Brake-force Distribution on the 2019 Kia Optima. This system works by maintaining a consistent distribution of weight that is applied to the vehicle upon stopping.

There are three trim levels to choose from with the Kia Optima (EX, LX, and SX).
