An attractive midsize, the 2019 Kia Optima adds safety technology in the form of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems to all its trims. It starts with Forward Collision Avoidance Assist, which can detect if your car is approaching a vehicle fast enough to cause a collision. You receive a warning so you can take appropriate action. If you don’t, the brakes automatically engage to either minimize the impact or prevent an accident altogether. Driver Attention Warning alerts you audio-visually if it detects lack of attention, such as if you get drowsy or fall asleep at the wheel. If you drift out of your highway lane without engaging a turn signal, Lane Departure Warning issues alerts and Lane Keep Assist nudges the steering wheel, so you remain on your intended path. When you back out of a parking spot, such as from your garage or at the mall, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning tells you if a vehicle is about to cross your rearward path.
Both the SX trim and the SX Limited Package include Smart Cruise Control that puts you at a safe distance from the car in front using the speed you set. When traffic changes speeds, so does your sedan automatically. If traffic stops and restarts, the Stop-and-Go feature ensures that your vehicle stops and restarts as well. The UVO telematics and infotainment system is now restructured into tiers that are easier to understand regarding what features are included with what trim level. Starting as a standard on the LX, UVO play merges your compatible smartphone to the audio system using a USB cable. You can then take advantage of Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ to issue voice commands for making phone calls, sending and receiving text messages, adjust navigation, and control music, so your focus always remains on the road.
On the S and SX trims, UVO link adds additional convenience and safety features. Added to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support are on-demand diagnostics, geofencing, speed alerts, vehicle alarm notices, and maintenance alerts. Remote Start lets you lock and unlock the engine from afar, activate the horn and lights when you’re outside the vehicle and engage the climate control system, so you enter a car that is comfortable. The top tier UVO link with Navigation goes on the SX trim, the SX Limited Package, and the EX with Premium Package. It includes all the previously mentioned features and adds My POIs, so you can define your points of interests and Map Care that updates your maps twice a year. Design enhancements for the model year include LED Daytime Running Lights, a grille finished in matte gray, and new 16-inch alloy wheel designs in the LX. The S gets LED taillights, sport side sills with gloss black trims, dual exhaust, projection beam fog lamps, 18-inch alloy wheels and a gloss-black grille. The SX now includes built-in heating for its new leather seats and a new 17-inch alloy wheel design.
