Safety - 2020 Kia Optima Hybrid dealer

While the IIHS and NHTSA have not conducted their tests for the 2020 Kia Optima Hybrid as of this writing, we do have an idea what to expect based on the 2019 Kia Optima Hybrid. Both organizations evaluated the Hybrid among the safest electric vehicles on the road. In fact, it earned five-star ratings across the board and got recognized as a Top Safety Pick. There have been no fundamental changes to the vehicle, and as mentioned in the introduction, the base model is getting numerous driver assistance features, so we should expect those great scores to go up or remain the same at the very least. Every Optima gets a rearview camera, and the touchscreen has been upped to 8 inches with Dynamic Parking Guidance. Blind-spot monitoring and lane keeping were already standard as of last model year, and this model year, you get the features mentioned earlier plus a driver attention warning system.
