 What's New for the 2018 Kia Optima?

As Kia's flagship midsize sedan, the Optima has long been a critical and consumer favorite for its excellent value, offering generous standard features and an expansive, well-appointed cabin. With a recent redesign (2016), there are few changes expected for the 2018 Kia Optima. Here's what fans of the brand who are car shopping this season can expect.

Though the 2018 Kia Optima is primarily a carryover model, a few new features will be introduced this model year. Most notably, all trim levels will now come standard with the UVO eServices system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, integrated with a 7" touchscreen. While these features were offered last year, they were only available on the 2017 Optima's upper trims. In addition, an array of driver assist features are now standard across the lineup, including blind-spot detection, rear parking alert, and rear cross-traffic assist. Last year, these features were optional. Several new features and options packages have also been introduced to the Optima for 2018:

  • LX 2.4L Convenience Package, with laminated power front windows and a 10-way adjustable power driver's seat
  • Panoramic Sunroof Package for the S 2.4L
  • LX 1.6 L Turbo now comes standard with 10-way power driver seat, laminated front windows, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Single projection headlights are now standard on the EX 2.4L

In addition, the SX 2.0L Turbo model is now a package for the SX Limited rather than a separate trim. It includes LED fog lights, a panoramic sunroof, heated and ventilated 10-way adjustable front seats, and the UVO3 infotainment system.
