Transform your drive.
The 2017 Optima is premium comfort with the power to transform. Aggressive and refined, it’s your getaway vehicle and lounge on the go. The Optima is comfort for everyone, fitted with high-tech gadgets, like the Smart Power Liftgate, and available second-row First-Class Lounge Seating. From the spacious driver cockpit to the versatile Slide-N-Stow® seats, the Optima is intuitive control and flexibility that keeps pace with you.
Optima’s emotionally charged exterior is punctuated at every corner with striking, front and rear fascia, complementing Kia’s signature Tiger nose grille. The iconic Optima is undeniable style that commands attention and the road.
Hugs curves. Turns heads.
With curves in all the right places, Optima’s exterior is a masterpiece of form and function. Aerodynamically sculpted and precisely calculated, its design details make Optima just as appealing to look at as it is to drive.
Exhilarating, inside and out.
A thrilling Optima driving experience begins before you start the engine. The moment you slide behind the wheel, you discover a quieter, more spacious cabin loaded with the latest available amenities. The perfect environment for pure driving pleasure.
The driver’s command center.
The driver-side console features a clean, horizontal design that streamlines ergonomics and helps create a greater sense of space.
Trendsetting design. Trailblazing technology.
Cruise confidently with our most advanced driver-aid technologies—including Autonomous Emergency Braking, Advanced Smart Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning, and Blind-Spot Detection with Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
Need a brake? We’re here to help.
Optima’s available Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) is designed to detect and monitor vehicles traveling ahead of you. If AEB determines a crash is imminent, it automatically applies the brakes, helping you lessen the damage of a collision, or avoid it altogether.
Turns fuel into adrenaline.
No matter which trim you choose, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the power and fuel efficiency built into every Optima engine. The LX 1.6T trim includes a 1.6 liter Turbocharged engine with 7 Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT) that revs up the driver in you, while the SX and SX Limited trims offer the 2.0 liter Turbo for those seeking a balance of efficient, real-world power with improved fuel economy.
Protection for all, all around.
The Optima uses more than 50.1% Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS). A ring-shaped section, defining the boot opening behind the rear seats below the shelf, substantially increases body rigidity. And hot-stamping of components in 16 core stress areas boosts the body structure for better driving dynamics and a quieter ride.
The 2017 Optima embodies Kia’s continued commitment to safety, earning a 5-Star Crash Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). It comes standard with advanced passive safety features, like the comprehensive airbags and seat-belt systems, built to be your first line of defense in any crash.
