The 2019 Kia Optima has recently arrived at Concord Kia, and we wanted to take some time to highlight all of the new upgrades and features that car shoppers can expect to see on the new midsize sedan.

“The Optima continues to be one of our best-sellers for good reason; its stand-out design sets it apart from other cars in the midsize segment. The 2019 refresh sharpens the overall design inside and out and we are making a number of ADAS technologies standard across the entire Optima line, which underlies the tremendous value Optima offers. A new approach to our award-winning telematics system, UVO, will make it easier for buyers to understand its features and UVO link includes an embedded modem. The new two-tone sport seats are for those looking to differentiate their Optima with unique European-inspired design cues,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president, product planning, Kia Motors America.
