Need a brake?
We’re here to help.

Optima’s available Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) is designed to detect and monitor vehicles traveling ahead of you. If AEB determines a crash is imminent, it automatically applies the brakes, helping you lessen the damage of a collision, or avoid it altogether.

Conveniently maneuver in and out of tight spaces like a pro. Available Surround View Monitor (SVM) gives you a bird's-eye view around your vehicle.


The Kia Optima has advanced smart cruise control that adjusts to your surroundings.

Keep your distance.

Optima’s available Advanced Smart Cruise Control (ASCC) is a radar-based technology that helps you adapt to changing conditions on the road and maintain a safe distance from vehicles in front by automatically slowing or accelerating your Optima when needed.


The forward collision warning system in the Kia Optima alerts the driver of dangers.

Forward thinking.

Be more aware of obstacles and other unpredictable changes in the road with the available Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS) system, which activates and alerts you when your Optima detects objects immediately ahead that may cause a potential impact, encouraging you to decelerate.
