Still attractive after all these years and now fitted with abundant safety technology, the 2019 Kia Optima makes the strong case that sedans are not dead. Although four people fit with ease inside Kia’s midsize sedan and there’s plenty of room in the trunk for luggage, the Optima is sized perfectly for easy around-town driving.
New Features and Revisions
Most significant, Kia’s new Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (Blind-Spot Collision Warning, Parking Distance Warning, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning, Forward Collision Warning, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Lane Change Assist, Lane-Keeping Assist Line and Lane Departure Warning) have been made standard on all 2019 Optimas. Moreover, the Optima’s UVO (voice recognition) telematics system is now broken down into three tiers to make it easier to understand and use. The 2019 Kia Optima also benefits from mildly revised front styling that links it to the Kia Stinger sports sedan.
