What are some notable design details of the 2019 Kia Optima?
Okay, so yes, just about every car has a grille. A vehicle’s grille allows air to enter the front-side of the engine and also acts as a shield for the radiator and motor. The base Optima comes with a matted gray grill, but other trims come with different looks. The S and EX models come with a gloss black grille, while the SX features a slightly modified sport grille, also gloss black.
Sport black mirrors
The SX trim comes as a sportier version of this sedan. The grille above combines with gloss black sport side-view mirrors to give a subtle yet effectively fierce appearance.
Available on all trims but standard on the SX, the Optima’s panoramic sunroof looks great and serves a nice purpose. You can open it up on nicer days to get the ideal airflow, or simply open the power sunshade to let some more light in.
Solar control glass
Science has made it possible for the Optima’s windows to reduce interior heat buildup from the sun. Every trim comes standard with solar control glass so those extra hot days don’t cook the inside of your car.
