    Built to Offer Protection

    The body of the 2019 Kia Optima has been built to offer the highest degree of protection from front, side, and rear impacts. The car’s body is made of Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS), which gives high structural integrity and rigidity to the vehicle. 16 of the core stress spots of the car have been hot-stamped, which facilitates additional strength and stability to the frame.

    The 2019 Kia Optima also comes fully-fitted with state-of-the-art safety technology, which includes the following:

    • Advanced airbag system that comes with front impact, dual side-impact, overhead impact, knee impact, and full-length side curtain airbags
    • Collision impact sensors
    • Three points crisscross seat belts
    • Height-adjustable pretensioners
    • Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) system
    • Anti-lock braking system for all four wheels
    • Brake assist & electronic brake force distribution
    • Electronic stability control technology
    • Hill-start assist control
    • Traction control system
    • Vehicle stability management system
    • Tire pressure monitoring system
    • Lane departure warning & lane keep assist
