New Features You’ll Love on the 2017 Kia Optima
LX Driver Convenience Package
One of the things you will notice on the 2017 Kia Optima is that the availability of the Driver Convenience Package has been expanded and is now offered in the LX and LX 1.6T models. Adding the Driver Convenience Package will give you exterior power-folding and heated mirrors. You also get an Integrated Memory System and 12-way power adjustment for the driver’s seat.
LX Convenience Plus Package
The 2017 Optima also adds a Convenience Plus Package to the LX trim. This set of options focuses on expanding technology, giving you Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Blind Spot Detection System, Rear Parking Assist System, Android Auto™, Apple CarPlay™, and UVO eServices with a 7-inch touchscreen.
Other Expanded Features
In addition to the new packages for the Optima LX, Kia has expanded the list of standard features on the SX and SXL. The SX now comes standard with LED dual-projection headlights featuring Dynamic Bending Light and 18-inch alloy wheels. The SXL has the same newly standard features, but with chrome alloy wheels.
The cabin of the 2017 Optima has become quieter as well, thanks to enhanced cabin-sound insulation. The mirrors have also been re-contoured to reduce noise further. In addition, the windows now absorb sound.
Your Favorite Returning Features
In addition to the updates, the 2017 Kia Optima still provides you with all your favorite features from the previous model year. The signature Tiger nose grille catches your eye, and you can enjoy LED headlights and High Beam Assist.
While you sit inside the Optima, you will appreciate the console with its clean horizontal design, which creates the feel of a larger cabin. Driving will be less stressful with the range of available driver-assistive technologies, like Advanced Smart Cruise Control and Autonomous Emergency Braking.
