Do you remember the first time you heard of hybrid vehicles? Did you expect to see a futuristic vehicle with amazing design flourishes and next-level performance? If you did, you might have been disappointed when you found most of the non-Kia models available had an awkward, mundane design or were lacking in the performance area. But fear not: The 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid has the aesthetics and the power to make any disappointments other hybrids brought you a distant memory.
The 2017 Optima Hybrid shares the elegant European sport-style of the standard gas-only Kia Optima, with a striking front fascia, roofline and more – basically, pillar-to-pillar design excellence. And you get the eco-friendly benefits of a hybrid, such as reduced tailpipe emissions and increased fuel economy, which in the 2017 Optima Hybrid’s case is a wallet-friendly 39 mpg city, 46 mpg highway. When you pair this savings with the combined 192 horsepower the Optima Hybrid offers, you have a powerful and eco-friendly package.
|Performance & MPG||Features||Technology|
|39 mpg city, 46 mpg highway||Smart Trunk: Opens automatically with Smart Key||Available 10-speaker Harman/Kardon QuantumLogic Premium Surround Sound|
|192 combined horsepower from gas engine and electric motor||Available heated and ventilated front seats||Rear-Camera Display, standard|
|Gas engine: 2.0 liter, 154 HP||Available power-folding outside mirrors||Available Rear Parking Assist System|
|Electric Motor: 50 HP||Available white leather seat trim||Available Autonomous Emergency Braking|
While the 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid is an impressive package of eco-friendly savings already, you’ll want to see the next-level technology at your command, such as UVO3 eServices, which offers available voice-command navigation in the top EX trim level, as well as a 10-speaker Harman/Kardon audio system. Plus, you get helpful driver-assist features like available Rear Parking Assist, which emits a noise if something is in the way behind your Optima Hybrid as you’re trying to fit in a parking space. You also get the safety of available Autonomous Emergency Braking, which pumps the brakes if someone of something jumps in front of your car and you don’t have time to stop yourself.
