The 2019 Optima uses a MacPherson strut front and multi-link rear suspension with high-performance dampers to absorb bumps and dips on the road. On the SX, the suspension is tuned for a firmer, sportier ride. The car's electric motor-driven power steering is for sharp and precise turning, as well as efficiency. (The motor supplies the power, rather than the steering drawing it from the engine.) On the SX, the motor is mounted on the steering wheel rack for a quicker response and better steering feel.
