Which Optima Hybrid trim model should I choose?

There are essentially two trim models: the 2019 Kia Optima Hybrid Premium and the EX.

The 10-speaker premium Harmon Kardon audio system gives your favorite songs and upgrade. Its crisp audio will impress even the most discerning audiophile in your social circle. The EX offers optional seating ventilation, a feature that’s quick to cool you down when your sedan has been sitting in a simmering parking lot all day.
