Highlights in the 2019 Optima

The perks in the Optima extend far beyond the features under the hood. The Altima is already lagging a little there, but the victory extends to the comforts and conveniences in the cabin for the Optima. As we already stated, the Optima is becoming increasingly popular and it’s largely due to offering features that border on luxury with available two-tone black and red leather seating material. Heated and ventilated front seats are available for those days when the temperature is a little too much to handle.

Of course, technology is a hot commodity and a necessity nowadays as drivers look to stay connected on the road. The Optima comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which will allow you to connect your compatible smartphone and access everything from music to navigation routes and apps while still allowing you to make calls and send texts. Jam out to all your favorite tunes with the Harman/Kardon® Premium Sound System and QuantumLogic technology through 10 speakers throughout the cabin. Other highlights in the 2019 Optima include a Surround View Monitor, Blind Spot Collison Warning, interior ambient lighting, and much more.
