6-speed Automatic Transmission
An electronically controlled automatic transmission offers smooth, seamless shifting.
Electronic Parking Brake (EPB)
Apply the parking brake simply by pulling a button and without worrying whether it’s properly engaged or not.
With paddle shifters at your fingertips, automatic-transmission gear changes are lightning-quick, just like in a racing car.
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 sidecurtain airbags, as well as a driver’s knee airbag.
Around View Monitor (AVM)
This intuitive system combines four wide-angle images from cameras at the front, rear and sides of the vehicle to give you a comprehensive bird’s eye view of the space around the vehicle while parking or moving at speeds below 20 km/h.
Parking Assist System (PAS)
This system uses ultrasonic sensors mounted on the front and rear bumpers to warn of any obstacles when maneuvering into tight spaces for safe and confident parking.
Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)
This system warns the driver when parking out of a parking spot or driveway if it detects any cross traffic in the lane the vehicle is entering. Available only with Blind Spot Detection option.
