Kia / Car Detail

Optima’s perfect balance fascinates you on first sight.

Eye-catching lines that draw admiring glances

Because strength and safety go hand in hand

The steel members of the Optima body are engineered for substantial torsional rigidity, or resistance to twisting forces, so that bumps and jolts in the road are absorbed with precision, while impact forces during a collision are managed in ways that better protect the occupant space.
The Optima features hot-stamped components in 16 core stress areas on its chassis. The strengthened body structure helps provide improved crash protection and better driving dynamics. It is the foundation of a quieter ride.
The application of 119 meters of structural adhesive effectively enhances structural rigidity of the vehicle chassis, and minimizes noise, vibration and harshness for your smooth ride.
To help protect occupants and potentially reduce injuries in the event of a collision, the Kia Optima offers driver, front passenger, two front-side, and two side-curtain airbags, as well as a driver's knee airbag.
