You’ll find a high-definition touchscreen interface in the middle of your command center from which you can access your infotainment system. Powered by UVO, the Optima’s infotainment system is quite advanced, offering Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ connectivity. You’ll also find a high-quality sound system inside. The Harman Kardon® QuantumLogic™ sound system offers incredible quality with its 7.1 channel surround sound through 10 speakers at 630 watts. You can even enjoy the added benefit of Clari-Fi™ audio restoration no matter what you’re listening to.

Safety Technology

With the Kia Drive Wise system, you can drive with peace of mind, knowing your ride’s tech is working to keep you out of accidents. Blind Spot Detection and Lane Change Assist come standard in all Optima models, so you don’t even have to upgrade to a higher-level package to enjoy those benefits. Additionally, the Optima offers Autonomous Emergency Braking, which can literally be life-saving. Should a collision risk be detected, your Optima can apply the brakes for you to avoid or at least limit the damage of a crash. While helpful, it’s important to remember that systems like this can never replace your own reaction time.

Hybrid Technology

Some of the best available Kia technology features can be found under the hood. Equip the Optima with one of the hybrid engines, and engineering technology can have you saving more than ever at the pump. Available in standard hybrid and plug-in hybrid models, you can enjoy the benefit of a partly electric engine powering your journey without burning a drop of gas. The hybrid engine is a 2-liter 4-cylinder that produces a surprising 270 lb-ft of torque despite having a major electric motor component. If you opt for the plug-in version, you can even enjoy EV mode, which ensures that all operation of your vehicle is electricity-powered.
