The 2019 Optima now has a new 16-inch alloy wheel design and a matte gray-finish grille. Plus, the 2019 Optima also has new LED daytime running lights that were previously found on the 2018 Kia Stinger. 

One of the most exciting new additions to the 2019 Kia Optima, though, is the new UVO Link. With this, drivers have more remote control over the Kia Optima than ever before! Drivers simply just need to seamlessly connect their smartphone to the Optima and they get tons of new capabilities! 

With the UVO Link, drivers can control the Optima’s A/C and heating system with the Remote Climate Control! Adjust it before you get in or even set up a schedule so it’s always the same every day! And, drivers can use the Remote Lock/Unlock feature to always make sure they remembered to lock their doors! 

New Standard Advanced Safety Features in the 2019 Kia Optima 

Also new on the 2019 Kia Optima are standard advanced safety features from Kia Drive Wise. The Forward Collision Avoidance Assistance-Car (FCA-Car) and Lane Keeping Assist-Line (LKA-Line) are standard in every 2019 Kia Optima! 

The FCA-Car is there to help apply the brakes when it senses a possible impact or collision up ahead of you. And, the LKA-Line helps by applying corrective steering if it senses you driving outside of your lane!
