When it comes to cars, sexy curves and a shiny paint job get all of the attention. People focus on the exterior, forgetting they will spend most of their time inside the car. It only takes a few hours of driving to know if you’ve got a comfortable car – or one that will send you to the chiropractor.
Kia knows the average motorist drives more than 10,000 miles per year. That’s why the new 2016 Optima offers an interior that will allow you to enjoy each and every one of those miles – even if you’re sitting in traffic.
For 2016, the Optima offers a completely redesigned interior that is both larger and more comfortable than the outgoing model. Kia studied the design of its larger sedans to outfit the Optima with a cabin more luxurious than any car in its class. High quality stitching and tasteful metallic accents make the Optima a place you’ll want to spend time and be proud to show off. The center stack has also been revised with fewer buttons and knobs for a clean look and ease usability.
But, the interior isn’t just about good looks. The cabin of the new Optima is as comfortable as your living room couch – maybe even more so. A stiffer seat frame reduces vibration, while both front seats are heated, ventilated and power-adjustable. The front passenger seat is even height-adjustable. Cloth or Nappa leather is available depending on which trim level you choose. There are also two new eye-catching interior colors available for 2016: Rich Merlot and Dark Aubergine.
When it comes to technology, no car manufacturer offers more standard equipment than Kia. The Optima includes features such as Kia’s own UVO2 connectivity system. Up front you’ll find an 8-inch color touchscreen compatible with both Android Lollipop and iOS 8. If you like your tunes, a six-speaker audio system comes standard, but there is also an available Infinity Premium Audio System, which includes 14 speakers, Clari-Fi technology and a 630-watt digital amplifier. Drivers are able to focus on these amenities more too, thanks to driving aid systems including autonomous braking, surround-view monitor and forward collision warning
Improvements made throughout the chassis and engine compartment benefit the interior as well. Stiffer engine mounts and larger cross-member bushings reduce both cabin noise and vibration.
With the 2016 Optima, beauty isn’t only skin deep. Take a test drive and see for yourself how comfortable your daily commute could be.
