Hands free simplicity comes in the form of Bluetooth wireless standard on every new Optima while the available UVO eServices Infotainment system makes it simple to stream music initiate calls and have complete control over your phone without taking your hands off the wheel! Plus you’ll be prepared for the unexpected with the Optima’s cutting-edge safety features including an advanced airbag system and standard antilock brakes as well as Vehicle Stability Management to help the driver regain control if necessary.
