Enhanced safety features are now standard equipment on just about all of the new cars being manufactured today. So if they are similarly equipped, how can one car rate any higher in overall safety than another? At Pat McGrath Kia, the leading Iowa Kia dealer, we know that the difference is in the craftsmanship, engineering, and design of an automobile. That integration of smart technology with a very basic and well conceived structural integrity is what puts the Optima on a whole different level than the competition.

Safety is Kia’s Top Priority

Loaded with the most advanced safety features, the 2013 Kia Optima is designed to provide the best protection possible for you and your passengers in the event of an accident. As the Top Safety Pick of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), this mid-size sedan from Kia earned the highest rating in all four crash test categories; frontal offset, side, rear, and roof strength.

A great choice for your next family car, the 2013 Kia 4-door comes equipped with a LATCH system. This Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children has been heralded by a wide range of child health and safety organizations, as well as major insurance companies, as one of the best vehicle safety innovations for children.

There is a full array of important standard safety features on the Optima, including:

  • a high-tensile steel-reinforced body
  • anti-lock brakes
  • electronic stability control
  • traction control
  • front and rear 3-point seatbelts
  • and an impact-absorbing steering column

Seatbelt pretensioners with force limiters, and active headrests, help to minimize the risk of injury in a collision. The full complement of airbags includes dual front airbags, with front-seat side and curtain airbags that are controlled by an innovative system of sensors.
