Kia Optima LX

The base trim level of the 2020 Optima is the LX, and it comes with a lot of standard features. This includes Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, which give you safer and convenient access to your smartphone to make calls, send messages, listen to music, and more while driving.

Another impressive aspect of this base trim is its performance. Powering the LX is a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that produces 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque. While you’re enjoying thrilling performance, the LX is also ready to help keep you safe with assistive technologies like Blind Spot Collision Warning, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assistance with Pedestrian Detection, and more, all standard.

Inside the Optima S, there are a few changes to its design. This includes the sport black cloth seat trim with leatherette bolsters and leather-wrapped steering wheel. You’ll also be able to set up your seat just the way you’d like it with the 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat that also features 2-way power lumbar support.

Kia Optima Special Edition

The Special Edition trim level takes a step toward luxury with its leather seats and LED interior lighting. The front seats can also be heated along with the steering wheel, which is great to have when driving during the winter.

On top of its fuel-saving performance, the Optima EX also comes with additional features like the Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go that will help you safely travel with the flow of traffic.

The infotainment system also gains a navigation system that you can control with your voice. Then whatever audio you decide to listen to, the 10-speaker Harman Kardon® QuantumLogic™ Premium Surround Sound System will give you an incredible listening experience.
