Designed to be smarter and more efficient, the Optima Hybrid features improved aerodynamics and an updated powertrain. And with its 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.
The 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 ways to maximize efficiency without sacrificing on performance.
By closing front air flow at certain speeds and temperatures, the active air flap system helps boost efficiency while cutting down on wind noise.
The 2-liter Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engine is designed to help maximize efficiency for a more compact package.
The hybrid’s lightweight, high-density lithium polymer battery was 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.
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 the optimum driving experience.
Reaching new levels of convenience and efficiency, the Optima Hybrid has an EPA-estimated 39 mpg in the city, 45 mpg on the highway, and 41 mpg combined. That means fewer stops at the pump and more time enjoying the open road.
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.
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.
