Super Collision Safety ?A Mix of Decent Look and Urbanity
Kia Optima is the best sedan that money can buy among those in the same class. Not only does it offer a spacious and comfortable interior and excellent safety in case of collision, but also sufficient stability when stopping. It aims to be the representative of mid-size sedans with its decent-look. 밢ptima,?the plural form of the word 뱋ptimum,?means 뱓he best or the most suitable for a particular purpose.?
The lines from the deluxe-looking front end and the sophisticated shaped rear end show a subdued tone that befits nobleness. The entire atmosphere of its interior gives it a calm and cozy feeling, with leather seats and wood grains offering a gracious and soft touch. Various sound-absorbing materials used enable it to offer the quietest inner space among those in its class.
The body, coated with special high-gloss coating materials and the use of platinum spark plugs makes its durability much higher.
Equipped with airbag, EBD ABS, Optima proved to be the safest among mid-sized sedans in Korea by succeeding in getting a five star score for the driver뭩 seat safety and three stars for the front passenger seat in the collision test at the RTSA (Road Traffic Safety Authority) in December 2000.
Other features include the 8-way powered driver뭩 seat that makes it handy for the driver to adjust his/her seat back and forth, a remote control switch attached to the steering wheel enabling the driver to operate the audio system more conveniently while driving, the seats heated through built-in heating coils, and the system to cut-off harmful gases or odors.
