2019 Kia Optima – Video
Known as the K5 and manufactured at the Hwaseong assembly plant, the Optima features a reshaped tiger-nose grille with vertical slats. The headlights are different, as are the DRLs and LED-accented fog lights. All in all, the name of the game at the front of the car is “angular.”
The 2019 Kia Optima benefits from a handful of revisions on the inside, starting with the design of the engine start button. The steering wheel and instrument cluster, more advanced voice recognition, Advanced Smart Cruise Control, UVO 3.0 infotainment with complimentary telematics service, and Krell premium audio are some of the highlights.
The South Korea-spec Optima is available with four. The range starts with the 2.0-liter gasoline four-cylinder engine, and continues with the 1.6-liter turbo, 1.7-liter turbo diesel, and liquefied petroleum gas-capable version of the 2.0-liter plant. The Optima Hybrid and Optima Plug-In Hybrid are next in line for facelifting, and both of the models should arrive at dealers by year’s end.
