For 2019, the Kia Optima continues to offer some of the most feature-packed models you can buy in the midsize sedan segment.Restyled exterior includes new headlights, wheels and trim pieces.Comprehensive driver assistance features now standard on all Optimas.Revised Uvo infotainment offerings.

The 2019 A8 poses a genuine threat to Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Cadillac. It is taller, longer, more isolated from the road, yet better controlled than the A8 it replaces. It is a cruise missile for the wealthy; it flattens mountains and straightens freeways with ease. And even absent Traffic Jam Pilot, the official term for the headline self-driving feature, it’s quite likely the most technologically advanced car in the world.

Pros
A big fella who can dance,
superb ride comfort and body control,
anechoic-chamber silent,
subtle for a limo.

Cons
Advanced self-parking features need more work,
sober styling inside and out,
questionably unfinished.
