Kia Optima Trim Levels

The midsize 2019 Kia Optima is a well-appointed sedan with plenty of space for friends, family, and of course, all that important cargo. The Maguire Kia sales team is proud to serve Ithaca, Corning, and Binghamton and has put together this guide to the Optima trim levels to explain the key standard and available features you'll find in them.

The Optima comes in four trims, giving you different ways to personalize your driving experience.

Kia Optima LX

The entry-level edition of the Optima will feel anything but ordinary, thanks to its 2.4L 4-cylinder engine, which delivers 185 horsepower. Linked to a 6-speed automatic transmission, this engine shifts smoothly and delivers outstanding performance when you need it most.

Inside the cabin, there's plenty of technology to enjoy. It all begins with the standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. These features allow you to link up a compatible smartphone to the touchscreen and interact with apps and features similar to the ones found on your phone. Read text messages, choose a song from your playlist, or utilize navigation features to reach your destination. As for that touchscreen, it's a large 8-inch offering.

New for 2019 is the addition of several standard safety features. Included in this package, you'll have:

  • Blind Spot Detection (BSD)
  • Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS)
  • Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS)

These features are constantly working to provide you with up-to-date safety information and can protect you from a potential crash.

Kia Optima S

Standard UVO link functionality on this trim can enhance your travels. Seamlessly connect a smartphone to the Optima, for access to remote lock and unlock capability, remote climate control, and 24-hour roadside assistance. Easily cool or warm the cabin with just a few taps and ensure your car is locked even when you aren't near it.

The interior receives some key upgrades, including sport black cloth seat trim, and a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat with lumbar support. Set the seat to your liking and remain comfortable even on longer drives.

Kia Optima EX

If you want the feel of a turbocharged engine, consider the 2019 Optima EX. This trim features a 1.6L turbo 4-cylinder engine, which offers a bit more kick and produces 178 horsepower. See and be seen, thanks to the helpful fog lights and LED taillights.

Sound can make a true difference in your drive, and the Harman Kardon® premium surround sound system sets out to do just that. With its 10-speaker setup, it transforms your favorite songs and ensures crystal-clear listening for your favorite podcasts.

Want to warm up quickly on your morning drive? One way to do so is with the standard heated front seats in this trim. Just flip the switch and you'll feel the heat on these leather-trimmed seats.

Kia Optima SX

Are we saving the best for last? Sure, if you're talking about the engine power found on the SX trim. The 2.0L turbocharged engine on this trim is the most powerful of all available Optima engines, and delivers 245 horsepower. Once you're behind the wheel, easily sync points of interests from your smartphone to the standard Premium Navigation system.

The available Surround-View Monitor goes further than the standard rearview camera, giving you a more complete picture of what's happening around the vehicle before making that next move.
