The term dark horse is thrown around a lot, but the Kia Optima may be the biggest example of the phenomenon in the automotive world. Quietly biding its time for more than a decade as an adequate sedan, the Optima has spent its current generation dazzling both drivers and reputable automotive publications, racking up awards like the IIHS Top Safety Pick + and contributing to Kia’s fourth consecutive year at the top of J.D. Power’s Initial Quality Study mass-market winners.
For 2019, the Optima is getting even better. A styling refresh sees the Optima move from European sophistication to a more sporty and aggressive exterior design, complete with an athletic stance, coupe-like proportions and redesigned front end. Innovative technology features further add to the Optima’s already-stunning value by giving drivers more for less.
Choose between a thrifty 2.4L, a massively-efficient turbocharged 1.6L engine or a thrilling turbocharged 2.0L engine to select the performance you want. Kia’s 6-speed automatic transmission with Sportmatic® is onboard to use this power efficiently and enjoyably. Especially conscious of fuel economy? Kia’s incredible 7-speed dual clutch transmission keeps your RPMs low and your gas budget even lower.
Kia’s Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS), a suite of active safety features, is now standard on every 2019 Kia Optima model. Whether you prefer the entry-level LX trim or the range-topping SX, you’ll have Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA), Driver Attention Warning (DAW), Lane Keep Assist (LKA) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW).
