3 Reasons to Drive the 2019 Kia Optima Home to Whitewater

  • Spacious front seats for all sizes. One big reason why more Americans are moving away from sedans and towards crossovers and SUVs is because many feel the seats in a sedan are too tight and constrained. Not so with the 2019 Kia Optima. This car was built to feel roomy and offer plenty of seat adjustments for the driver and front passenger, including four-way lumbar support for the driver. The front sport seats are well bolstered to also offer plenty of cushioning during tight turns while the rear seats offer backseat occupants plenty of head and legroom of their own.
  • Top safety ratings. Kia has long been known for producing safe and reliable vehicle and the 2019 Kia Optima is no outlier. This model has earned the best ratings from third-party review groups, including the prestigious "Top Safety Pick +" award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. This rating reflects the model's superb ability to protect its occupants in a variety of crash scenarios. Additionally, reviewers applauded the model's headlamps for providing stellar nighttime visibility -- a particularly important concern for Whitewater drivers who are often driving in a more rural environment with minimal street lights.
  • Premier infotainment system and available features. The2019 Kia Optima comes outfitted with the highly acclaimed UVO infotainment system that's accessible via an 8-inch touchscreen display at the center of the dash. This system boasts high-resolution graphics, quick responses, and is where the driver can access key driver assist features like the rearview camera. This latest version of the sedan is also available with a number of advanced tech features like dual-zone automatic climate control and a built-in Wi-Fi hot spot so that occupants can enjoy a steady and reliable connection to the Internet no matter where their travels take them.
