2019 Kia Optima Review


The updated 2019 Kia Optima takes a leap forward with a long list of standard safety and technology options. The Optima looks better than ever as well thanks to new design inspired by sports cars like the Kia Stinger.

At Waikem Kia in Massillon, Ohio, buying an Optima is easier than ever. We offer the area’s best prices and the most knowledgeable sales staff. We invite you into our showroom today to see why the Optima is the perfect midsized sedan for your driveway.


Safety Standard

This is the safest Optima ever, and Kia’s Advanced Driver Assistance System is now standard on every new Optima.

- Forward Collision Avoidance Assist -- can automatically apply the brakes to reduce speed, which may minimize the effects of a frontal collision. 

- Forward Collision Warning System -- is designed to detect a potential collision with a vehicle it senses in front of the Optima and provides an audible warning and visual displays to alert the driver.

- Driver Attention Warning -- monitors the driver and will provide visual and audible alerts if it senses the attention level has been significantly reduced. 

- Lane Keep Assist -- may apply corrective steering if it senses the vehicle drifting outside the intended lane

- Lane Departure Warning -- monitors the position of the Optima within its lane and warns the driver if it detects that the vehicle is deviating or about to deviate from the intended lane.

Other standard safety options on your new Optima include blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alerts and a backup camera.


Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

Each Optima also comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, part of Kia’s UVO entertainment system. UVO play tethers the user’s compatible smartphone to the Optima’s audio system through a USB cable.  Via voice recognition, drivers may use their compatible Apple or Android smartphones for navigation, to make calls, send and receive messages, and listen to music all in a way that allows the driver to stay more focused on driving.

New Style

The new Optima is gorgeous. You’ll turn heads wherever you go thanks to the sports car inspired design on the 2019 Kia Optima.

It looks like the Stinger with LED daytime running lights, thin front nose and 16-inch alloy wheels. A long list of enhancements to the affordable S model emphasize sportiness and technology, including: new projection beam fog lamps, LED taillights, dual exhaust, sport side sills with gloss black trim, a gloss-black grill and 18-inch alloy wheels.

The EX boasts the turbocharged 178-horsepower engine with a seven-speed dual clutch transmission with an adaptive Smart Shift drive mode.  It also adds new leather seating surfaces with front seat heaters.  A new 17-inch alloy wheel design and Smart Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go are standard.  Similar to the S, the EX is equipped with standard fog lamps, LED taillights and dual exhaust. Available options include new ambient multicolor interior lighting, and a heated steering wheel.

Redesigned 18-inch wheels are standard on the SX and the SX Limited (SXL) package is available with Michelin 235/45R-18 tires. New LED fog lights, ambient interior lighting, sport steering wheel and Smart Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go functionality are standard on both SX and SXL variants.  The SX features available European-styled red and black two-tone sport leather-trimmed seats, panoramic roof, a Harman Kardon®3 premium audio system with UVO link with Navigation, heated steering wheel, gloss black door pillars and side moldings, and a sport bumper with LED fog lamps.  The SXL is available with a striking new two-tone bronze and black interior with Nappa leather seating surfaces.
