4 Reasons to Choose the Kia Optima for Your Long Commute


Red 2020 Kia OptimaCommutes can take up much of our day-to-day lives. The amount of time you spend commuting makes it that much more important to find a car that can make the best of it — cue the 2020 Kia Optima. Here are a few reasons why you should choose the new Optima to improve your long commutes.

  1. Entertainment

Each 2020 Kia Optima comes equipped with a touch-screen display that changes the way you think about your daily commutes. This touch screen is compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, which let you use many of your favorite phone features directly through your Kia, using only your voice to guide it. Play your favorite album, listen to podcasts, get directions to your next destination, look up sports scores — the list of functions the touch screen performs to keep you entertained and connected on your drives is as extensive as it is impressive.

  1. Driver-Assist Tech

Some of the most sought-after vehicle features in the new decade are driver-assist technologies. If you’re looking to upgrade your safety during your commutes, these are the perfect way to do it.
Each 2020 Optima comes standard with Kia’s automatic emergency braking technology and blind-spot collision technology. The first uses radar to look ahead for potential collisions and applies your Kia’s brakes when it detects imminent danger. The blind-spot monitor looks out toward the Optima’s flanks to let you know when it’s safe to change lanes. You’ll also be able to take advantage of the lane-keeping assist system, which helps you stay in your lane. These technologies make commutes safer than they’ve ever been.

  1. All-Weather Comfort

The 2020 Optima is designed to keep you comfortable all year long. The Optima comes in four trim levels — the LX, S, EX, and SX — and as you move up the levels, you get more creature comforts to enjoy.
At the LX level, you’ll get heated mirrors that keep your rear vision clear. The Optima EX gives you heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and rear vents to treat your back-seat riders. The SX has ventilated front seats that keep you cool in the summer and a heated steering wheel that warms you in the winter. With the 2020 Optima, you can stay comfortable, no matter the weather dishes out.

  1. Hybrid Options

If it’s a heightened fuel economy you’re looking for, you’ll find it in the 2020 Optima hybrid options. Kia offers a conventional hybrid option and a plug-in hybrid, both of which allow you to save money at the gas pumps and reduce your emissions. With an EPA-estimated 42 combined mpg, the 2020 Optima Hybrid continues to save you money after you drive out of the dealership. Through a regenerative braking system, your Optima recharges itself every time you decelerate. For a faster charge that cuts your fuel usage down by dozens of miles, opt for the hybrid plug-in.
