2017 Kia Optima Hybrid Garden Grove CA
If you aren’t driving a hybrid, you’re not rolling around in a vehicle that is nearly as efficient as it could be. Hybrids are among the most practical vehicles on the road right now because they have an electric motor and battery pack to help boost power and efficiency along with a standard gasoline engine. Add on regenerative braking and you can go the distance without breaking the bank. The 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid is a smart choice that blends the features of the standard Optima with even more efficiency.
What is it about the 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid that makes it so different from other options on the road? Style might seem like a small factor when you consider economy, but the reality is you don’t want to pay for a vehicle you won’t fall in love with. The Optima Hybrid simply doesn’t have that dull look that tells the world it’s boring, but boy, is it ever eco-friendly.

Fuel economy is one of the most important considerations when opting for a hybrid. Keeping in mind the Kia Optima Hybrid is a midsize car, it won’t get quite the same numbers as the compact hybrids it’s frequently compared to. Still, the EPA-estimated 39 city and 46 highway is an excellent improvement.
Nothing makes you want to yawn behind the wheel like slow acceleration, and it’s frustrating for those behind you too. The 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid has a 2.0-liter GDI engine coupled with a 38kW electric motor for a total estimated output of 193 horsepower, which is excellent for its class.
Standard features are an important consideration, especially for a hybrid vehicle. The Optima Hybrid comes standard with a 7-inch color touchscreen system featuring Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, full power features and push-button start.
