What's New For the 2020 Kia Optima?

Now in its fourth generation of production, the Kia Optima remains a popular choice in its class, which is primarily due to its attractive styling and ride quality. Kia continues to produce a quality vehicle that stands the test of time. Receiving minor changes for 2020, the Optima continues its legacy as a top contender for its body style.

2020 Optima Trims & Features

The 2020 Kia Optima is available in five trim levels: LX, S, EX, EX Premium, and SX. Two cloth-covered seats accommodate up to five people. At the front is an 8-way manually adjustable driver seat with power lumbar support, as well as a 6-way manually adjustable passenger seat.

At the S trim level, Kia introduces steering-wheel leather wrapping and 10-way power adjustability on the driver's seat, and it is the only model with sporty black cloth seat trim with leatherette bolsters. Leather seat trim and front-seat heating are introduced at the EX trim level. Upgrading to the EX Premium provides steering-wheel and front-seat heating, a leatherette-treated instrument panel with silver stitching, and 12-way power adjustability with 4-way power lumbar support on the driver's seat.

Unique to the SX trim are a driver-side memory system and a sports-style seat trim and steering wheel. Standard comfort and convenience features include cruise control, remote keyless entry, a 3.5-inch TFT LCD meter display, Bluetooth audio streaming and hands-free phone calling, Siri Eyes Free, six-speaker audio with AM/FM radio and MP3 playback ability, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration, a USB port and an auxiliary jack, and an 8-inch touchscreen display. A smart key system with push-button engine start appears on the S trim and higher.

The EX trim level is where Kia introduces dual-zone automatic climate control, auto-dimming ability on the rearview mirror, wireless phone charging ability, UVO infotainment integration, and SiriusXM satellite radio service. At the EX Premium trim level, the six-speaker setup gives way to a 10-speaker 630-watt Harman Kardon QuantumLogic surround-sound system. Only the SX has a 4.3-inch TFT color LCD (in place of the 3.5-inch) and steering-wheel paddle shifters.
