The 2019 Kia Optima is the brand’s family-sized sedan. Now in its fourth year on the road in its current version, it’s updated this year with new bumpers and wheels. Inside, the Optima SX offers optional red-and-black leather upholstery, while the SXL is available with bronze-and-black Nappa leather. More significant is the addition of automatic emergency braking, active lane control, and lane-departure warnings as standard equipment on every model except the two hybrids.
There are four available gas engines, one coupled to hybrid technology. The LX and S models use a 2.4-liter 185-horsepower 4-cylinder mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The EX takes a 1.6-liter turbo-4 making 178 hp with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic, while the SX comes with a zippy 2.0-liter turbo and 6-speed automatic.
The Optima LX is very well equipped, with power windows and doors, cruise control, Bluetooth with audio streaming, keyless ignition, power front seats, 16-inch wheels, a 7.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and automatic emergency braking.
