2016-kia-optima2016 Kia Optima Amazing Features and Technology

The new 2016 Kia Optima has a very spacious cabin for a sedan, so you can transport groceries, sporting goods, and large items with ease. Because the vehicle is constructed strategically – sounds can’t access the interior environment easily. As a result, your driving experience will be very quiet during long trips down busy highways.

The technology in the 2016 Kia Optima makes typical driving tasks easier. Whenever the car is involved in a dangerous situation, the Autonomous Emergency Braking technology will engage. A collision warning tool and blind-spot detection system are equipped in the vehicle as well. This technology increases safety and gives drivers peace of mind.

The 2016 Kia Sedona received the award because it has tools that are suitable for families. All of the seats in the cabin are cozy with an innovative temperature-controlled system in the cushioning to boost comfort levels when the temperature drops. This technology has three heat settings and several fans that distribute air evenly to keep you feeling great on long trips.

The new Sedona is one of the best vehicles for a road trip, carting kids to soccer practice, or just running errands. The most convenient tool is the Smart Power Liftgate, which opens the truck automatically. The liftgate system relies on a sensor that’s found in the key fob. On the road, the vehicle uses multiple safety systems to prevent crashes and accidents including Rear-Cross Traffic Alert, Blind Spot Detection, and Forward Collision Warning. Rest assured that your family is safe.

There’s no denying why these vehicles are ideal for Simi Valley families of all types.
