2019 Kia Optima: A Family Sedan with a Race Car Look & Feel

We attended the auto show as a guest of Kia

Along with the debut of the 2019 Kia K900 at the New York Auto Show, guests attending the event were in for a big treat by getting to be the first to see the all-new 2019 Kia Optima. For many years, the Kia Optima has always been a top choice for families looking to purchase a midsize sedan, and the new reimagined vehicle is going to have more parents wanting to get behind the wheel of the beautiful car.

The one thing that stood out to me when first seeing the new Optima was its sleek design and race car feel. It gives parents the ability to feel like they are driving a race car, even though they might have car seats in the back seat.

At Kia, they are not afraid to do things differently, and the Optima is a great example of that. The vehicle has European inspired seats, redesigned front, and rear fascias, a racing-inspired steering wheel, and multi-colored ambient lighting.

The 2019 Optima debuts a restructured UVO system that features a tiered approach to in-car connectivity. It comes with UVO Play that features Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and USB connectivity with the driver’s smartphone. The system features voice recognition to navigate, make calls and the ability to send/receive text messages to assist the driver with staying focused on the road. One of my favorite UVO features for busy families like mine is the convenience of the remote start, remote lock/unlocking, and remote activation of the horn and lights – you can even start the Optima using your smartphone!

Keeping your family safe on the road is a priority to Kia. Every Optima will come standard with advanced driver assistance systems that will work together to help avoid accidents. The car is equipped with a forward collision warning system, driver attention warning, and lane departure warning. This advanced safety system will play a crucial role in helping to keep your family safe while driving.

The 2019 Kia Optima is just another example of Kia’s commitment to excellent craftsmanship. Learn more about the Kia Optima online at
