Editor’s note: This Car Seat Check was written in August 2019 about the 2019 Kia Optima. Little of substance has changed with this year’s model. See what’s new for 2020 or check out a side-by-side comparison of the two model years.
The verdict: Kia’s Optima got a host of changes for 2019, including flashier styling, additional standard safety features and a revised multimedia system. Although the sedan has plenty of legroom for two car seats, we had difficulty installing them due to the sedan’s buried Latch anchors.
Does it fit three car seats? No
Take a look at how the Latch system and each car seat scored below in our Car Seat Check of the 2020 Kia Optima.
