2020 Kia Optima Naples FL

2020 Kia Optima Exterior Passenger Side Front Profile

Perhaps one of the most recognizable models on the Kia lineup – outside of the ultra-popular Stinger – is the Optima. It has been around since the turn of the century, establishing itself as a great choice in the midsize sedan segment along the way, and is now entering the fifth year of its fourth generation. The 2020 Optima continues to represent a great option in that segment for shoppers here in Naples FL and the surrounding area.

The Optima didn’t undergo a facelift or anything for the 2020 model year, but it did receive a few upgrades and enhancements. The Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist feature now includes Pedestrian Detection technology on the LX and S trim levels and wireless charging has been made standard on the EX and SX trim levels. Additionally, the LX and SX Limited packages have been discontinued but the EX Premium has been upgraded to its own trim level.
