Nothing spells futuristic like cars with nifty technologies and gadgets housed within its compact frames. It’s not all just for show though, as functionalities still rank very much high in consumers’ needs list.
For Kia, technology is functionality, and functionality is a matter of aesthetics. Not a lot can seamlessly pull this off, but with the 2016 Kia Optima, it just looks like they’ve done it–yet again.
Body Build Impressive
To give it that futuristic look, the car has a “tiger nose” grill up front, making it appear that it is giving an intense stare. Meanwhile, the rear lights take on a slimmer, rectangular shape, as if they were eyes squinting to look at whoever is riding behind them.
The automotive manufacturer also boasted that this new model is much stiffer than the 2015 model, by as much as 150 percent. Other parts such as the body panels, engine mounts, and even the wheels have also been fortified. Take note that under the hood, there is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder and a 2.0 turbo four, which are coupled with a six-speed automatic.
Gadgets and Gizmos Aplenty
Additional nifty features that further elevate the “futuristic” experience today is the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration, from which you can blast your songs from with the help of the 630-watt Infinity system. Parents would probably want this for their first-time teen drivers, too, as it provides a hefty amount of driving support to ensure their safety. From geofencing, curfew and speed alerts, to even driving scores, teens are going to be a lot more mindful of the way they drive.
