3 Reasons to Check Out the Kia Optima
If you’re in the market for a new car, check out the 2018 Kia Optima. Made in America at the company’s Georgia plant, this remarkable sedan is stylish and refined. The 2018 models emphasize smart technologies to keep passengers safer while riding in luxury and comfort.
The 2018 Optima Exterior
The European-styled body is accented with stunning lines along the front and rear. The body sends a bold statement that demands attention. With its sleek curves and subtle lines, the Optima’s exterior combines form and function flawlessly. The aerodynamic body yields above-average fuel consumption, making this sedan a great family or commuter car.
Optima’s trademark Tiger-nose grille catches the eye, especially when enhanced by LED lights. This model year, the Optima comes in five trim styles: LX, S, LX 1.6T, EX, and SX. Body colors include Snow White Pearl, Sangria, and Horizon Blue, as well as three shades of silver and two shades of black.
The 2018 Optima Interior
A quiet, spacious interior awaits in the Optima. The driver’s side is ergonomically designed to make it easy for drivers to reach the pedals without feeling cramped. The seats feature ventilated cushions designed to support key pressure points for a more comfortable ride. Adjust the driver’s seat at 12 different points, including 4-way, powered lumbar adjustment to keep the back supported. Front-seat passengers will enjoy a 10-point adjustable seat with 2-way lumbar support.
Rear seat passengers enjoy optional sunshades for cooler rides with less sun glare. Keep devices charged with two 12-volt outlets and one USB port in the front. The back has two USB ports and one 12-Volt outlet.
Improved insulation and body stiffness combined with redesigned mirrors and sound-absorbing windows make a ride in the Optima almost silent. Add in a heated steering wheel for wintertime comfort.
The 2018 Optima Drive Wise Technologies
This year’s Optima offers many technologies that alert drivers to potential hazards and others that help keep accidents from happening altogether. Autonomous Emergency Braking applies the brakes if it detects a risk. The Advanced Smart Cruise Control maintains a safe from other vehicles on the highway by using radar and will adjust speed as needed. The Forward Collision Warning System will alert the driver to potential hazards in front of the car, and the Lane Departure Warning System will sound if the car drifts out of its lane.
Innovative driver-assist technologies in the 2018 Optima make driving easier and safer. The Blind Spot Detection will alert drivers of cars or objects in their blind spot, and the Lane Change Assist chimes if a vehicle is approaching quickly. Keep kids and pets safe with Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Surround View Monitor that scans and warns if there’s anything behind the car or coming too close to the rear.
