2019 Kia Optima Trim Levels
If you are looking to get a 2019 Kia Optima for your commute around Louisville, Elizabethtown, and Clarksville, we have a lineup of various Optima sedans on our lot here at The Kia Store. And to help you figure out which one of the four new Kia Optima trim levels is the one you want, we highlighted some of the features that you will find in each of them.
Kia Optima LX
In this base-level trim, the Optima LX will be equipped with a 2.4L DOHC I-4 engine that produces 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque. This is also paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, the Sportmatic® Sports Shifter, and Drive Mode Select.
Inside the cabin of the 2019 Optima LX comes the UVO play infotainment system for connectivity to your smartphone to stream music through Bluetooth®. This also features an easy to use 8-inch touchscreen display. You will also get to enjoy the personalized connectivity and use of your smartphone’s apps with Android Auto™, Apple CarPlay™, and Siri® Eyes Free.
The 2019 Kia Optima is also loaded with an abundance of safety features, including:
- Rear-Camera Display
- Park Distance Warning-Reverse
- Blind Spot Collision Warning
- Lane Change Assist
- Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning
- Forward Collision Warning
- Forward Collision-Avoidance Assistance
- Lane Departure Warning
- Lane Keeping Assist

Kia Optima S
The infotainment system in the Optima S trim level is upgraded to the UVO link. The system includes conveniences like remote start, valet alert, and diagnostics info, as well as more options to stay entertained like SiriusXM®.
There are also changes to the interior design to give you more comfort with the sport black cloth seat trim, with leatherette bolsters that replace the cloth seat trim with Clean Tex™ seats. And the driver’s seat is now a 10-way power adjustable seat with 2-way power lumbar support compared to the 8-way adjustment in the LX. And the dual-zone full automatic temperature control system also comes standard.
Kia Optima EX
The 2.4L engine gets exchanged for the 1.6L DOHC I-4 turbocharger engine along with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, instead of the six-speed automatic. This engine will supply 178 horsepower and 195 lb-ft, while also giving the 2019 Kia Optima EX great fuel economy with 37 highway/27 city MPG*.
Within the Optima EX, the front seats are heated and you also have the option to get available ventilated front seats.
The Forward Collision safety technology also gets the added Pedestrian Detection feature, and the EX also includes the Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go for even more assistance from the Optima while driving.
Kia Optima SX
The transmission of the Optima SX returns back to the 6-speed automatic, but the engine once again is changed. In the 2019 Optima SX, the power will be maximized to 245 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque that is generated by the 2.0L DOHC I-4 turbocharger engine. You will also get a sport-tuned suspension in the SX trim. Other sporty features in the SX include a sport steering wheel with mounted paddle shifters.
On the exterior, the now LED headlights get a few added technologies with the Dynamic Bending Light with Auto-Leveling and High Beam Assist.
A few more features are also added to the infotainment system that now comes with HD Radio™ and SiriusXM Traffic™ that will give you real-time traffic conditions. The Optima SX also has outstanding sound quality for whatever you choose to listen to thanks to the 10-speaker, 630-watt Harman Kardon® Quantum Logic™ Premium Surround Sound with Clari-Fi™.
Both you and your front passenger will also enjoy a relaxing seated position with the 12-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with 4-way power lumbar support and the 10-way power-adjustable passenger’s seat with 2-way power lumbar support. Other luxury features include standard ventilated seats and a heated steering wheel.
