2020 Kia Optima S Specs

Kia Optima

The S trim brings with it an added line of value as well as its own exterior styling elements, including its 18-inch alloy wheels and S badging. On the inside, it gets fancier leatherette/cloth upholstery on the seating and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Even the standard safety specifications are abundant from the LX model upwards, meaning each trim has a rearview camera, cruise control, hill-start assist, impact sensing door unlock functionality, blind-spot collision warning, lane change assist, lane-keep assist, lane departure warning, driver attention warning, rear cross collision warning, rear park assist, forward collision warning, and forward collision avoidance with pedestrian detection as standard.
