Advanced smart cruise control, blind spot detection, rear cross-traffic alert and autonomous emergency braking are also available.

Interiors and Special Features:

As with most redesigns, the Optima’s new interior is both larger and more comfortable. The big news here, however, is that Kia used its larger sedans for inspiration when it designed the cabin, resulting in a more premium interior with a range of details usually found in luxury vehicles. The attention to detail is exemplary and the stitching on the dashboard and the doors, as well as the tasteful metallic accents, make the new Optima’s interior a nice place to spend time in. The cleaner design of the center stack, now sporting fewer buttons and knobs, helps improve this feeling.
