Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW)

Kia’s Blind-Spot Collision Warning system comes standard on all 2020 Optimas. This advanced technology detects vehicles in your blind spot while providing an audible and visible alert to the driver. The BCW system works to help drivers reduce their blind spots and notifies operators of objects that are not in their field of vision. BCW helps avoid potentially dangerous lane changing decisions to keep you and your passengers safer on the road.


The 2020 Kia Optima lineup features Forward Collision-Avoidance Assistance with Pedestrian Detection. FCA-Ped uses a front-mounted camera and sensor to detect pedestrians or potential frontal collisions ahead. This system provides the driver with an audible warning and a visual signal on the meter display. The safety feature can automatically apply the brakes if the system senses a frontal collision is imminent. This safety technology is standard on all 2020 Optima models.

Lane Keeping Assist (LKA)

Standard across all 2020 Kia Optima models is Lane Keeping Assist. LKA works along with the Lane Departure Warning (LDW) system to keep drivers safe. LDW is a camera-based system that monitors the location of the Optima in the driving lane. This system will also warn drivers traveling above a certain speed if the vehicle deviates from the driving lane without activating the turn signal.

Working along with LDW, LKA can intervene and provide steering assistance if the system detects operators veering outside of the driving lane. Drivers can travel safer thanks to the Optima’s LKA technology.

Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go

Available with the 2020 Kia Optima is Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go for your driving convenience. This technology helps drivers maintain a safe, predetermined distance from vehicles detected ahead. Stop & Go can bring the vehicle to a complete stop. Drivers can accelerate again with a tap of the gas pedal. Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go is standard on Kia Optima EX, EX Premium and SX models.

Other Safety Features of the Kia Optima

Kia uses Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS) to increase the body rigidity of the Kia Optima. Their Traction Control System (TCS) reduces and prevents wheel spin when accelerating. A Brake Assist System (BAS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) senses when emergency brakes are necessary while applying them consistently as the weight distribution of the vehicle changes. These safety features show Kia’s dedication to safety for everyone on the road.
