Whether you pick up after yourself at the park or you recycle, you care about the environment. You want to leave the world as good - or better - than the way you found it. It's time to take your dedication to the next level with a hybrid vehicle, which reduces the harmful emissions that all-gas engines give off. We'll take a look at two popular models in the mid-size hybrid class and see which is the right fit for you.
If you like cars that have an elegant design with subtle overtones of the power contained within, then the 2015 Kia Optima Hybrid is the choice over the 2016 Toyota Camry Hybrid. The Camry, on the other hand, has an attention-seeking front grille that contains less character in its wide design than the Kia Optima Hybrid's streamlined "tiger nose" front grille.
If it's value and savings you're looking for, Friendly Kia has VIP pricing for 2015 Kia Optima Hybrids starting at around $18,465, which is a savings of 30 percent off the price you will pay for a 2016 Camry Hybrid according to its suggested retail value. You might notice the 2016 Toyota Camry Hybrid gets slightly better gas mileage out of its combined gas engine / electric motor with 43 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway, but the 2015 Kia Optima Hybrid gets 36 mpg city and 40 mpg highway, and that is still a significant savings over what you pay at the pump with 100% gas-engine sedans.

Another edge the 2015 Kia Optima Hybrid has over the 2016 Toyota Camry Hybrid is the Optima has more room in the front, with a couple extra inches available for your head (40 inches) and legs (45.5 inches) versus the Camry's 38.8 and 41.6. And while the Camry has features in its XLE trim like daytime running lights or a HomeLink Universal Transceiver so you can easily open garage doors or gates, that car will cost about $30,000 dollars. Friendly Kia offers 2015 Optima Hybrid EX models for as low as more than $10,000 less than that, and you'll get to enjoy cool features like Rear Cross Traffic Alert and heated front seats and a ventilated driver's seat.
When you drive a 2015 Kia Optima Hybrid, you'll also have access to nearly all of the car's 235 torque instantly, thanks to the hybrid engine. And when you factor in all drivers of hybrid vehicles qualify for federal rebates of up to $7,500, the Optima Hybrid can be yours for a really nice price.
