Performance comes in many forms. It's the fun and exhilaration you feel when you use available paddle shifters for the first time. It's the precision handling of an available sport-tuned suspension.

Fuel-efficient performance.
Get the power you want with the fuel efficiency of four cylinders. The 2016 Optima gives you the choice of three available engines, including a 2.4L GDI, an all-new 1.6L turbo with 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, and a 2.0L turbocharged GDI, which provides 245 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque at your disposal.

Drive Mode
Customize your drive.
Drive your way. Love the sportiness of a D-shaped sport-steering wheel? It's available. Paddle shifters? Ditto. There are even three driving modes to choose from, ECO, Normal, or Sport, that tailor everything from the weight and responsiveness of the steering wheel to engine performance.

Pretty smooth.
Suspension is key to a smooth and unforgettable ride. With available sport-tuned suspension that is built for performance, the 2016 Optima provides a sporty feel from the moment you leave your driveway. What's more, with independent front and rear suspension, along with high performance shocks that come standard, the 2016 Optima can handle any road condition that Canada has to offer.



There are two sides to every Optima.

Do you prefer the modern look of the LX and EX models? It showcases an aerodynamic, but elegant front and rear fascia and subtle chrome accents.
Or maybe you prefer the sporty style of the SX and SXL, with aggressive front and rear fascia, satin chrome air ducts, and a sleek dual exhaust.

Great, no matter how you spin it.
Which rims will you take for a spin? A comfortable ride awaits, whether you prefer a 16-inch alloy, available 17-inch alloy or 18-inch machine-finished alloy wheels with red calipers. Hey, we never said the choice would be easy.

LED Lighting

Light up the night in style.
With available dual-function Xenon HID headlights and sport LED taillights, you'll be sleek whether you're coming or going. Plus, they're brighter than conventional lights, so you'll see much better as well.


Upscale comfort.

Once you sink into the available Nappa leather and slowly take in the redesigned cabin, you're immediately struck by the all-new Optima's enhanced quality and its upscale fit and finish. Details like available satin chrome accents are tastefully appointed, and driver centric features, like available heated and air-cooled front seats, let you truly make your Optima your own.

Drive in comfort and style.
Drive in comfort and style, wherever the road takes you. Every seat has been thoughtfully redesigned for enhanced comfort and performance. With seat options like black leather with sport-red stitching, quilted Nappa leather in black or cabernet, and more, you'll find material and design options to express your individuality.

Panoramic Sunroof

Take more in.
The perfect feature for perfect days. The available panoramic sunroof with power sunshade lets you take advantage of the blue skies you crave. And more than just giving you a great view, the panoramic sunroof is supported by carbon-fibre-reinforced plastics - helping to reduce weight and lower the Optima's centre of gravity.

True Canadian comfort.
Canada isn't known for predictable weather. Fortunately, the 2016 Optima can help you handle whatever the elements throw your way.


Tech that longs for your touch.

The available multimedia interface with navigation1 gives you complete control over your music and entertainment. Its 8-inch touchscreen makes input a snap. Plus, standard Bluetooth®1 connectivity means you'll have a hands-free link to your favourite devices.

Wireless Charging
Power without the plug.
Nobody likes "low battery". The all-new Optima helps keep your smartphone3 fully juiced with available built-in wireless charging. Smart and seamless.

Push-buttom Start
The key to a quick start.
No need to fumble for your keys anymore. The available Smart key with push-button start gets you in and on your way faster. Plus, its welcome lighting system illuminates the ground beneath the doors, greeting you as you approach. An especially welcome feature at night.

Driving Systems
An extra set of eyes.
Stay aware of your surroundings. With smart innovations that monitor your ever-changing environment, the all-new Optima helps ensure you don't miss a moment.


Safety all around.
The 2016 Optima includes a driver-side knee airbag among the seven onboard. Add those to an updated body that integrates advanced high-strength steel and the 2016 Optima surrounds you and your passengers in safety4.

Look forward to going backward.
Know your surroundings. An available rearview camera with large display and the rear parking sensors keep you aware of what's behind you. Plus, the available 360° camera monitoring system (shown) gives a real-time overhead view of the Optima. Backing up and manoeuvring will be a breeze4.

Autonomous Braking
Expects the unexpected.
Other drivers can be unpredictable. The 2016 Optima's available autonomous emergency braking system uses both cameras and radar sensors to monitor the driving environment. If a collision is imminent and the driver does not respond, the system automatically applies brakes4.

Active System
Cool and under control.
The all-new Optima has many systems in place to help keep you on track. Electronic Stability Control monitors steering and applies brakes to each wheel if the vehicle starts to skid. Hill-start Assist Control prevents you from rolling backwards by automatically applying brakes when the Optima is at an incline. And let's not forget Vehicle Stability Management, Electronic Brake Distribution, and Brake Assist. When it comes to safety, the 2016 Optima has things under control4.
