Turns fuel into adrenaline.
No matter which trims you choose, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the balance of power and fuel efficiency built into Optima’s turbo engines.
SX 2.0T | EX 1.6T
The SX offers 245hp and 260 lb.-ft. from a 2.0 liter Turbo with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters for ultimate performance and control, and a sport-tuned suspension for a stronger connection to the road.
The EX trim includes a 1.6 liter Turbocharged engine with a 7-Speed Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT) for those seeking a balance of real-world power with an EPA estimated 27/37/31 MPG City/Highway/Combined.
Exhilarating, inside and out.
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. With a new two-tone black and red leather interior for 2019, the Optima SX is a perfect environment for pure driving pleasure.
Driver’s command center.
The Optima cockpit is designed with purpose. Its available flat bottom leather steering wheel with molded grips offers perfect hand placement, while the shift paddles are precisely where you need them to be. A driver-side console features a clean, horizontal design that streamlines ergonomics and helps create a greater sense of space.
Protection and peace of mind.
The Optima uses Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS) and a ring-shaped section, defining the boot opening behind the rear seats below the shelf, to substantially increase body rigidity. And hot-stamping of components in 16 core stress areas helps boosts the body structure for better driving dynamics and a quieter ride.
Engineered for safety.
The advanced airbag system features dual front, front-seat-mounted side, and full-length side curtain airbags. High-tech sensors can detect the severity of certain impacts and the presence of a front passenger, helping to control airbag inflation.
Every seat comes with three-point belts for added security with over-the-lap and shoulder straps. The front seats have height-adjustable seatbelt anchors to help provide a more customized fit, as well as pretensioners that help restrain passengers in certain collisions.
Innovation starts here.
New to Kia for 2019 is UVO link, which makes life easier by offering smarter infotainment through an enhanced telematics suite and smartphone app. UVO link seamlessly connects your compatible smartphone to your Optima, giving you access to Remote Lock/Unlock, Remote Climate Control, 24-hour roadside assistance, and much more.
Music to your ears.
Available Harman/Kardon® QuantumLogic™ technology transforms the Optima cabin into an astounding 7.1 channel surround sound experience through 10 speakers and 630 Watts. Clari-Fi™ restoration technology delivers music as it was intended to be heard.
Charge It Up.
Keep your devices charged no matter where you sit. Optima’s front console features two standard 12 V outlets and one USB port. The center console is available with two additional USB ports and a 12 V outlet conveniently located for back passengers.
