As you can see, the 2019 Kia Optima’s trims have some substantial differences. If you are looking for Smart Cruise control with Stop and Go, you’ll need to look at either the EX or the SX trims, as the LX and S don’t have this feature available. Of course, if you want things like an auto-dimming rearview mirror, LED rear room lamps, or the Sirius® satellite radio, then you can stick with that base trim and have it added on, or you can go to a higher trim, where some of these features (or all, if you want the SX) are standard.
