Kia sedans have a legacy of award-winning safety. With more than 50% Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS) making up the body, the Optima is one of the safest sedans on the road. A ring-shaped section, defining the boot opening behind the rear seats below the shelf, substantially increases body rigidity. Additionally, Kia hot-stamps components in 16 core stress areas to boost body structure, providing for both a better driving dynamics and a quieter ride. When equipped with optional front crash prevention and LED headlights, the Kia Optima is a IIHS Top Safety Pick.
