If you’re looking for information on a newer Kia Optima Hybrid, we’ve published an updated review: 2019 Kia Optima Hybrid Review

Considering going the Eco route with a midsize hybrid? The 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid just might be what you need. Check out these five reasons to buy the reasonably priced Optima Hybrid.

Hybrid Efficiency

When it comes to efficiency, the Optima hybrid lets the numbers speak for themselves. It returns 46 miles per gallon on the highway and 39 mpg city, which make for a 42 mpg combined rating. Those are impressive numbers that’ll save you big at the pump. See the 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid models for sale near you

UVO Technology

Inside the Optima Hybrid, you can get a 7-inch or an upgraded 8-in screen, as well as standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. With the UVO eServices system, all you have to do is download some apps to do all sorts of cool things from your smartphone. Other innovative technologies include Kia’s super smart adaptive cruise control and Forward Collision Warning System.

Aerodynamic Style

Kia redesigned the Optima Hybrid with a refreshing style and an aerodynamic shape. Up front is a tiger-nose grille, and behind it is an active air flap designed to maximize efficiency. Beautiful 16-in wheels come standard, whereas the higher EX trim level has stylish 17’s.

Beautiful Interior

The standard features include the comfort of dual-zone climate control and the convenience of the push-button start. With plenty of options, you can really load up the interior with heated and ventilated front seats, leather, a panoramic sunroof and even a heated steering wheel. We also recommend the sound quality from the upgraded 10-speaker Harmon Kardon audio system.

Nice Ride Quality

The Optima Hybrid won’t blow you away with jaw-dropping power, but the 271 lb-ft of torque provide ample power. The hybrid system pairs an electric motor with a 2.0-liter Gasoline Direct Engine (GDI). Another added bonus: the cabin noise remains fairly quiet, overall.

Autotrader Says

The midsize hybrid market provides quite a few options these days. Before you make a selection, be sure to take a good look at the 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid.
