Some popular Kia Optima accessories include wheel locks, seat cover sets, dash- mounted GPS systems, and all-weather floor mats. Performance accessories such as ceramic brake pads and drilled or slotted rotors are also available to Optima owners. The K& N air filters are another favoured accessory as users claim they provide unrestricted airflow to the engine for higher horsepower.
Kia Motors launched the Optima series of passenger vehicles in 2000 as a mid-size four-door sedan, developing four speed automatic and five speed manual transmission versions. The Optima features safety accessories such as side air bags, splash guards and four-wheel disk brakes with anti-lock braking system.
The Optima fits a variety of seat covers, including the Premium Seat Cover Set, which features map pockets and pull-out arm and headrest covers. Another model is the Neoprene seat cover which is known to be virtually waterproof. Some Optima drivers require seat covers for rough usage, using seat covers made of imitation leather or corduroy.
Another after-market accessory for the Kia Optima, designed to revamp the automobile's interiors, is the Dash Designs dashboard covers. These are used to protect the interiors of the vehicle from fading and cracking due to heat and ultra-violet rays.
