2019 Kia Optima First Drive: More tech across the board

2019 Kia Optima First Drive and Review. Kia adds standard ADAS systems to its already value-packed sedan. With its good looks, strong turbo engine and huge smattering of onboard tech, it’s certainly worth your attention. And with a number of updates for the 2019 model year, the Optima is better suited to battle fresh-faced competitors like the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry.

Silent Refusal says:

Sorry but it doesn’t convince me in any way to get it over Camry or Accord. Even the new Sonata seems like a better choice. And that all new Altima looks really sweet to me. So…. I don’t know how and why this car would make it even to the end of this year?

RickTorn says:

Lane keeping assist is not supposed to bring you back into the lane. It’s supposed to KEEP you centered in the lane.

William M says:

the badge MAKES the car look cheap

Idris Shamad says:

The best body style was from 2012 to 2015
2019″ ugly try again kia

Shawn Carroll says:

2013 had more power

Christopher Calder says:

Nice looking car. Looks like they changed the front grill a little.

Emeka Mgbaja says:

Kia’s getting cold feet on bold designs now…new Camry and Altima designs trumps this

Mark W says:

Move along people, nothing to see here.

Kevin Heckeler says:

More funner ftw.

Rynum says:

Emma I wish you would go back to TFL this CNET gig is so cookie cutter.

Darion Fox says:

The 2.4 would be the one I would get

D. Dalb says:

So glad I have a ’12 sx. itll smoke the new ones. I know its no race car but I like my speed and will probably never buy an optima again due to them decreasing the power

Zach May says:

Wtf happened to cnet on cars with Brian Cooley?

金持ち says:

This is my car very good

Eric Nguyen says:

Man this is crazy I was a huge fan of the design of the last HYUNDAI SONATA from 2015-2017 but when they refreshed it for 2018, I thought it was hideous and I was sad too I wish they would have just freshened up the exterior of that and kept the grill and the overall design the same. But now the KIA OPTIMA looks 110% better than the SONATA I just wish HYUNDAI would have kept that premium and sleek design but now it looks like a razor on the front of it. I guess I’m buying an OPTIMA now.

LogicTech says:

885 HP?!?! Lambo..?

Sang Eeth says:

I wish it came in a wagon form.

alliejr says:

Dash and IP looking dated compared to Accord and Mazda 6.

WB Wayne says:

Emmy, wonder why the 2019 Optima didn”t receive the 8spd auto of the Sonata. How does it compare to the 2018 Mazda 6 Turbo in performance and handling.

Drew Croft says:

Yes bitch come through.
