2019 Kia Optima: Specs, Features & Trim Comparison

The Kia Optima has actually been around for a couple of years, and with the mixture of affordability, design and capability it’s simple to see why. The Optima transformed customer’s perspective concerning the brand. It revealed to the buying public that Kia was more than simply small, low-cost transportation. With the Optima you could now have a fashionable, secure and trusted large car with an incredible service warranty. That formula hasn’t changed and the ’19 Optima heads to showrooms with an updated front end and more base safety and security technology.

There are several gas-saving, 4-cylinder engines to select from on the ’19 Optima. The base engine is a naturally aspirated 2.4 L 4 cylinder engine that produces 185hp. The midrange engine is a 1.6L turbocharged 4-cylinder making 178 horsepower (yet with nearly 20 pounds extra torque). The high-end engine is a 2.0L turbocharged -cylinder creating 245 horse power. All 3 versions will get at least 30 miles per gallon on the highway (according to kia.com), however the EX with the 7-speed DCT is the least thirsty, getting an approximated 37 miles per gallon on the highway.


While still resembling the previous generation, the 2019 Kia Optima boasts a new, sportier style. The signature tiger nose grille is now flanked by LED daytime running lights for a striking appearance. The standard 16-inch wheels and dual exhaust pipes finish the stylish new look. Once you slide inside you will notice that you are surrounded in space and comfort. There won’t be fighting over riding shotgun due to the fact that while heated and ventilated front seats are optional, heated back outboard seats are likewise available. Comfort is not simply for front seat passengers anymore.

Technology Highlights

Modern technology and safety and security appeared to have changed into the ‘it thing’ that new automobiles must have. The new Kia Optima has both the safety and security options and the tech that buyers desire. Every new Optima comes with Forward Collision Avoidance, Blind Spot Collision Warning and Lane Keeping Assist. With Optima, you can feel safe handing the keys over to a new vehicle driver. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth connections are all part of the base 8-inch color touchscreen display screen. A Harman/Kardon stereo and Surround View Display are some of the intriguing technology options.
