2020 Kia Optima Features

The Kia Optima relaunched in 2020 with a plethora of new features spanning technology to safety. While it does reshuffle some old features, the 2020 Kia Optima remains an economical choice in its class. It checks most of the boxes for a standard sedan and is a great option for families. In this article, we review the features of the 2020 Kia Optima.


The engine is a four-cylinder non-turbocharged six-speed automatic at the base level, turbo 1.6 liters with seven-speed automatic transmission at the second rung, and a turbo 2.0 liter at the top of the range. The Optima can also carry a hybrid powertrain for more environmentally conscious customers. Kia’s hybrid release is hardly different from the fuel-powered engine, and an unobservant passenger could get by without noticing the difference.


The base model of the Optima comes with a simple interior. As the price ramps up, so does the level of interior comfort. Similarly, the Optima’s ability for cargo improves significantly as you go up in terms of models. The hybrid Optima lends some of its cargo room to make space for the battery packs.

Media technology

Equipped with a simple and easy-to-use infotainment system, the Optima carries an 8-inch touchscreen that supports both Apple and Android as a standard. Upgrades include wireless charging, navigation, Harman/ Kardon audio, but no cell hotspot.

Safety features

The Optima was named the top safety pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for its excellent safety features. The features include lane-departure warnings, forward collision warnings, automated emergency brake system, lane-keeping assistance, and adaptive cruise control with stop and go technology.

Warranty and Maintenance

The warranty covers 60,000 miles or 5 years, and the powertrain warranty lasts over 100,000 miles or 10 years. No complimentary maintenance comes with it.

Overall the Kia Optima 2020 strikes a good balance between features and the cost. It competes nicely against its rivals.
