When the designers and engineers behind the latest iteration of the Kia Optima looked to the ever-thinning foray of sedans on the market, they didn’t see a dying breed but a chance to excel. They saw promise and a segment of buyers who had been disillusioned by vehicles that couldn’t quite compete with the onslaught of crossovers and stayed firm in their old ways. The 2020 Kia Optima was seemingly a product of this reflection and challenge. This is evident when you look at the swept-back coupe-like styling of the 2020 Kia Optima. It’s evident when you see the long list of standard comfort and convenience technology.
It’s evident when you put your foot down in the Kia Optima and feel up to 240+ horsepower sing beneath you and pull your car confidently ahead. The 2020 Kia Optima builds on this generation’s success with even better features and a streamlined offerings structure.
Building on the success of the 2019 Kia Optima and its improved design, the 2020 Kia Optima offers only refinement for a near-perfect outgoing model.
While the design remains largely the same, extra features have been added to each trim level, allowing drivers and passengers alike to enjoy a better and more composed ride with plenty of technology to help every mile feel like a retreat.
Among those improvements, the 2020 Kia Optima LX and S trims now have Forward Collision-Avoidance-Assist with the advanced Pedestrian Detection feature. Both EX trims and the range-topping SX also feature wireless charging as a standard feature.
Wait a minute, did we just say both EX trims? That’s right, the fuel-efficient 1.6-liter turbocharged engine is now available in the EX and EX Premium trims. The latter builds on the efficiency-driven success of the 2019 Kia Optima EX by adding plenty of comfort and convenience features.
Ultimately, the 2020 Kia Optima is a driver’s car in a segment that has historically turned its nose up to engaging performance and variety.
