Vehicle Technology & Features

At Kia, we believe convenience should come standard. That's why we've equipped every 2018 Optima with Blind Spot Detection (BSD) and Lane Change Assist (LCA). So, when it comes to locating vehicles in your blind spot, including when you change lanes, you have extra help without the extra cost. Competitive claims based on manufacturer websites as of August 2017. Subject to change.Blind Spot Detection (BSD) with Lane Change Assist (LCA) is not a substitute for proper and safe driving. Always drive safely and use caution when changing lanes and driving in reverse. BSD with LCA may not detect every object alongside or approaching from behind the vehicle.

Music to your ears

The 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. Harman/Kardon® QuantumLogic™ Premium Surround Sound with Clari-Fi™, 630 Watts and 10 Speakers included in the EX Technology and SX Technology Packages. Harman/Kardon®, Clari-Fi™ and QuantumLogic™ are registered trademarks of Harman International Industries, Incorporated.

Turns fuel into adrenaline.

No matter which trim you choose, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the power and fuel efficiency built into every Optima engine. The LX 1.6T trim includes a 1.6 liter Turbocharged engine with a 7-Speed Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT) for those seeking a balance of efficient, real-world power with improved fuel economy. The SX offers the 2.0 liter Turbo and steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters for ultimate performance and control.

Protection for all, all around

The Optima uses more than 50% Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS). A ring-shaped section, defining the boot opening behind the rear seats below the shelf, substantially increases body rigidity. And hot-stamping of components in 16 core stress areas boosts the body structure for better driving dynamics and a quieter ride.
