 What’s New for the 2018 Kia Optima?

For 2018, Kia’s interior designers decided to make some major upgrades to the Optima’s cabin. Having the patented CleanTex label, the cloth upholstery covers the front seats. Having anti-microbial and anti-static properties, this premium material is engineered to resist staining and other damage that comes from extensive use. If you prefer a traditional upholstery with a lavish design, then opt for the quilted Nappa leather finish. The driver’s seat is now available with a 12-way, power-adjustable design that’s optimized for great ergonomics. A lumbar support with a four-way setting is also integrated into this comfortable seat. All of the seats in the Optima offer heating for the ultimate comfort on chilly days. Featuring three settings, the ventilated front seats add an extra level of comfort during the summer. Of course, the dual zone automatic climate control system further adjusts the temperature settings in the cabin. In the digital technology category, the 2018 Optima retains many of the signature features from the previous year. Powered by the UVO platform, the 8.0-inch GPS navigation system has a touch-screen menu. Real-time updates on road conditions are delivered via SiriusXM Traffic. You also have the option of listening to music on SiriusXM Satellite Radio on a premium sound system by Harman Kardon. Rated at 630 acoustic watts, the 10 speakers utilize the QuantumLogic technology that’s based on 7.1-channel surround sound standards. Additional audio enhancement is done by the Clari-Fi Music Restoration feature. This high-tech Kia sedan also supports wireless connections, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Offering more than five accident-prevention features, the 2018 Optima is a true contender for being a class leader in active safety. When it senses an abrupt change in traffic flow, the Autonomous Emergency Braking immediately engages the brakes. Before this automatic braking system comes on, you will probably get audible and visible alerts from the Forward Collision Warning System. This Kia sedan also offers the Advanced Smart Cruise Control that continuously tracks the distance to another car that’s in front of you. Before you decide to move into another lane, make sure that the Blind Spot Detection and Lane Departure Warning System don’t come on. Other lane-changing guidance is provided by the Lane Change Assist. The Optima is now available with the Surround View Monitor that captures 360-degree overhead views in real time. You can conveniently turn on a split-screen display that includes live videos captured by a camera lens in the rear bumper.
