Efficiency at its most elegant.

Redesigned to be smarter and more fuel efficient, the 2017 Optima Hybrid features improved aerodynamics and an updated powertrain. And with its new 6-speed automatic transmission and 2-liter Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engine, it offers a combined 271 lb.-ft. of torque for an exhilarating drive.


Energy-saving upgrades.

The 2017 Optima Hybrid comes packed with enhancements designed to stretch your fuel even further. We examined everything from the aerodynamic shape to systems under the hood, and found new ways to maximize fuel economy without sacrificing on performance.


By closing front air flow at certain speeds and temperatures, the active air flap system helps boost fuel efficiency while cutting down on wind noise.

The new 2-liter Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engine helps increase fuel economy in a more compact package.

The hybrid’s lightweight, high-density lithium polymer battery was re-engineered to deliver 13% more energy and 19% more power.

Every time you decelerate, regenerative braking uses that kinetic energy to recharge the electric motor’s battery. And now, the 2017 Optima Hybrid can capture that energy even better than before.

The dual power of hybrid.

Meet Kia’s Full Parallel Hybrid system. A cutting-edge design that couples an electric motor with a Gas Direct Injection (GDI) engine. They work together or separately to offer the right combination of power, based on your driving conditions, for optimum fuel efficiency.

Less gas. More road.

Reaching new levels of fuel efficiency, the 2017 Optima Hybrid has an EPA-estimated 39 mpg in the city, 46 mpg on the highway, and 42 mpg combined. That means fewer stops at the pump and more time enjoying the open road.


Efficiency on display.

The vibrant supervision cluster displays all you need to know at a glance—and with crisp Thin-Film-Transistor (TFT) LCD clarity. Track your battery charge, MPG, driving style, and much more.

All systems go.

The advanced hybrid system switches intelligently between electric motor and gas engine to suit your driving conditions. It uses exclusively electric power during start-up and low-speed driving, and both gas and electric systems at full acceleration. For intelligent hybrid power no matter the drive.
