The 2019 edition of the Kia Optima comes with an updated front-end design that includes new running lights powered by LEDs. Kia has also upgraded the Optima's suite of smart safety technologies to add a lane-departure warning system, lane-keeping assist, and automatic emergency braking system to help drivers feel more confident on today's freeways. Along those technological lines, the Optima's infotainment system has been given an update to improve its user-friendliness.
The 2019 Optima comes in four trims: LX, S, EX, and SX. The base LX trim comes with the Optima's standard 2.4L four-cylinder engine and an automatic transmission with six speeds. The option to upgrade to the sportier 1.6L engine has been removed and made exclusive to the EX trim. The EX trim pairs the more powerful 1.6L motor with a dual-clutch transmission with seven speeds and advanced features like heated steering wheel, fog lights, and adaptive cruise control.
The Optima S comes with the same engine as the LX but adds convenient features like a push-button starter and a proximity key. The S trim also gets new exterior touches like 18-in wheels, black-edged sills, and LED taillights. The premium trim for the 2019 Optima is still the SX, which receives a new Limited package that includes a black-on-bronze upholstery color scheme. The SX also gets a unique steering wheel design, a sunroof, and a standard red-and-black color scheme. In addition to these updates, the SX continues to be the trim with the most powerful engine option, which is a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder motor.
