2019 Kia Optima
2019 Kia Optima - Experience the Difference
Six different trims, plenty of comforts, and a new level of standard safety makes the 2019 Kia Optima a top choice in its class. Here's a quick rundown on what makes this year's Optima the world's favourite mid-size sedan.
What's new in 2019
A few subtle changes for the 2019 model year make the Kia Optima safer, more fun to drive and even better looking than last years model. New LED running lights, and an updated front fascia lead the way on the exterior. Safety-wise, every 2019 Optima now come standard with Lane-departure Warning, automated emergency braking, and lane-keeping assist. The 2019 Optima also gets Kia's latest UVO infotainment software.
Stylish, Sporty and Loaded with Tech
An aerodynamically shaped body, elegant grille, and modern LED lighting make this year's Optima look more like a sporty luxury import than a practical sedan. Equipped with the available rear spoiler, dual exhaust, and 18" machined-finish alloy wheels with red callipers, the 2019 Optima becomes the sportiest sedan on the market today.
Sporty on the outside and comfortable on the inside, every 2019 Kia Optima comes standard with Heated Front Seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and all but the LX trim gets a heated steering wheel (a definite plus during our cold Canadian winters). Standard tech on this year's Optima includes an eight-inch touchscreen display, Bluetooth connectivity, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration.
A choice of two - trim-specific - engines power this year's Optima. The LX, LX+, EX, and EX Tech trims get an inline 2.4L, GDI, 4-cylinder engine while the SX Turbo and SXL Turbo get a turbocharged 2.0L, T-GDI, 4-cylinder. All 2019 Optima's feature a 6-speed Sportmatic automatic transmission. The standard four-cylinder gets 9.5/7.1 L/100km while the turbocharged version gets 11.2/7.9 L/100km (Highway/City), L/100km.
Kia vehicles win awards in every class, year in and year out. Although the Optima has only been around since 2016; it holds its own when it comes to quality and safety and has the awards to prove it. Here are some of the most recent awards won by the Kia Motors, and the Optima in particular:
