2018 Kia Optima near Grafton

A Look at the Exciting Changes for the 2018 Kia Optima Available Now Near Grafton

It's a new year with new improvements for the 2018 Kia Optima. Not that the Optima had that much that needed improvement. The Optima has long been hailed as a great all-around four-door sedan that offers all the space, features, and safety drivers want out of a family vehicle and daily driver. Now there's even more to love. See what we mean with the following look at some of the key changes made for this year's production model:

Changes with the Kia Optima Infotainment System. In previous years, an integrated infotainment system was something of an add-on feature. This year, every trim level gets a standard 7.0-inch UVO eServices system. This is a subscription-free information system that operates by either touchscreen or advanced voice-recognition technology. This means drivers (or front passengers) can make easy hands-free calls, select songs, and get on-demand directions to their next location. The infotainment system itself is fully compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and has special app features like a Parking Minder feature that will automatically save the location of your vehicle when parked to help guide drivers back to it when necessary.

New Standard Safety Features. We believe safety should always be a priority which is why we were so excited when we learned about the long list of standard safety technology included on the 2018 Kia Optima. No matter what trim you choose, you'll enjoy key driver assist features like Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Blind Spot Detection, and a Rear Parking Assist System that will make it easy for you (or a young driver in the family) to back in and out of tight Grafton shopping mall parking spots.

New Trim Level. There is a healthy range of trim levels, package add-ons, and upgrade features available for the 2018 Kia Optima. Yet among all of these choices is an all-new one: The S trim. This trim features most notably the more powerful and efficient 2.4-liter engine and a lower price on the available Panoramic Sunroof Package that is a must for those who like their cabins with a bit more natural light and energy. Other great standard features include LED taillights, a stylish rear spoiler, foglights, and eye-catching 17-inch wheels.

Exciting Improvements to the Popular LX 1.6T Trim. In addition to adding a whole new trim line, Kia decided to update and improve their current trim list. The updates to the LX 1.6T are perhaps the best example of this as it got an exciting array of luxury features like a 10-way power driver's seat, laminated front windows, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. This trim level features at its heart a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that is coupled with a seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission that will make you love hitting the highway for commutes and adventures out of Grafton.
