 What's New for the 2018 KIA Optima?

Five models make up the roster of the 2018 Kia Optima, which is a full-size sedan that's made for families. You can purchase the LX base edition for slightly under $23,000. The S and LX 1.6T are priced under $25,000. For just under $26,000, you could get the EX trim that's loaded with premium features. In the previous year, the SX Limited was considered the most advanced and expensive model in the lineup. For 2018, the Kia decided to make the SX version the highest-level option, which is available for just less than $31,000. When it comes to the exterior design, Remington Red is a new option that replaces Sangria from the previous year. Overall, the 2018 Optima has a more sleek and aerodynamic appearance that commands attention on the road. You'll also notice that the Tiger Nose grille has been enhanced for contemporary and aggressive styling.

When looking at the 2018 Kia Optima's active safety technology, you'll notice that several accident-avoidance features have been standardized. Powered by the latest sonar technology, the Rear Parking Assist System facilitates parking and handling in tight spaces. This advanced parking aide was optional in most of the trims in the previous year. Operating on radar technology, the Blind-Spot Detection (BSD) helps you notice other cars that might move into your blind zones. Four of the 2017 Optima models had this safety feature as an optional addition. Some other accident-prevention amenities that are standard in the 2018 Optima include the Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. In fact, the 2017 model only had the Lane Departure Warning without any extra lane-changing tools. Perhaps the most sophisticated active safety feature in the 2018 Optima is the Autonomous Emergency Braking, which reduces the severity of a collision between you and another car that's ahead. You'll get audible and visual alerts from the Forward Collision Warning just before the automatic braking function takes action. There are plenty of other safety installations that come standard in the 2018 Optima, such as the Hill Start Assist Control and Vehicle Stability Management. A driver's knee air bag is installed to mitigate injuries to your legs during an accident. Full-length side curtain air bags reduce injuries to all occupants during a lateral collision. Additionally, the front air bags and seat-mounted air bags deploy in two stages.
