Inside the 2020 Optima


Make a bold first impression with the signature tiger nose grille and crisp LED headlights. Vibrant colors like Horizon Blue and Passion Red pop against the gloss black accents of the mirrors, rear spoiler, and sport side sills. Dual chrome exhaust tips direct attention to the power that’s under the hood and give a sporty vibe to the Optima’s exterior. 

The available panoramic sunroof with power sunshade floods the interior with natural light, while ambient lighting keeps the cabin bright in the evening hours. Choose between wood grain or satin chrome accents in the trim of your Optima. Heated and ventilated front seats are available in two-tone black and red leather. The leather-wrapped D-shaped steering wheel provides a few extra inches of legroom and supports a more dynamic driving style. 

With available shift paddles, you can adjust gears seamlessly without ever taking your hands off the wheel. 15.9 cu. ft. of cargo volume in the trunk can expand when traveling with fewer passengers thanks to the 60/40 split-folding rear seat. 


Choose from available engines to customize the Optima to meet the needs of your lifestyle. The available 2.0L turbocharged engine delivers 245 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque for maximum power and performance. The 1.6L turbocharged engine is paired with a 7-Speed, Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT), which gives you a more efficient ride with an estimated 32 mpg in combined fuel economy.

Regardless of which engine you select, the Traction Control System (TCS) helps you tackle tough driving or weather conditions with confidence. Other features such as Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC) can help you take your Optima anywhere. 

Safety and Tech

Connect to your favorite media, playlists, apps, and call features thanks to Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration. With available wireless charging, you can rest assured that your devices can stay powered up and ready to go without the hassle and clutter of unnecessary wires.
