Intelligent by design.

Advanced technology doesn’t end with a sophisticated hybrid powertrain. The Optima Hybrid is loaded with available leading-edge innovations, like Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) and UVO eServices, to make your driving experience more convenient than ever.


Reality? Check.

Your new Optima Hybrid is packed with new technology, and we’ve developed an owner's manual for you to take anywhere. Using the Augmented Reality (AR) App, simply scan your Kia to learn more about a displayed feature. Or, get useful tips and info even at home. It's the convenient way to get the most out of your hybrid.

Quick reflexes.

Stay one step ahead with available driver-assist technologies. Designed to detect and monitor the vehicle in front of you, Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) automatically applies the brakes when it senses a frontal crash will occur. And the Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS) alerts you when its radars detect a foreseeable impact with an object ahead.


Our smartest cruise control yet.

Available Advanced Smart Cruise Control (ASCC) does more than help you maintain a constant speed. Using radar-based technology, ASCC will automatically slow down or accelerate your Optima Hybrid, as needed, to maintain a predetermined distance between you and the vehicle ahead of you.


Effortless connectivity.

UVO is your copilot that delivers information and entertainment on command. And with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility, UVO eServices lets you connect to your smartphone right from your digital display, all while keeping your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. Learn more at
