Safety

The 2016 Chevrolet Malibu's1 active Blind Spot Monitoring System warns you when a vehicle enters your blind spot, a little more peace of mind as a standard feature. Want that extra security on the Optima? Blind Spot Monitoring isn't standard on the 2016 Kia Optima5, so it will cost you.
If your vehicle begins to drift out of its lane, the Lane Departure Warning System, standard on the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu1, will sound an alarm. This extra layer of safety isn't standard on the 2016 Kia Optima2, so if you want it, you'll have to pay extra.
The 2016 Chevrolet Malibu6 offers side airbag protection to its rear passengers standard, but that same level of safety isn't even an option on the 2016 Kia Optima.
