Why Buy the Optima Hybrid?

Buy the 2018 Kia Optima Hybrid because you want rich comfort and modern technology to go along with your thrifty hybrid powertrain. In addition to earning 39 city/46 highway mpg, this sedan caters to your comfort. The driver-oriented Optima offers every comfort, from sleek leather upholstery to cozy seat heaters. You’ll also find smartphone-savvy technology, including Kia’s Smart ITSelf smartphone app which makes it easy to send for roadside assistance or remotely set the temperature to warm up the cabin on a frosty day.

Which Optima Hybrid Is Best?

You’ll choose between two 2018 Kia Optima Hybrid models — the Premium and the EX. Both feature the same economical powertrain and a classy, comfortable cabin, but the EX adds extra comfort and convenience features.

In the Premium model, you’ll enjoy spacious cloth seats with plenty of commute-friendly support. But in the EX, you can take the level of luxury up a notch with handsome leather seat trim. The Optima Premium comes standard with the Uvo infotainment system to keep you connected with hands-free calling features and music streaming capabilities. The EX adds to this technology with voice-command navigation and a bigger touchscreen display.

What’s the Difference Between the Optima Hybrid and the Optima Plug-In Hybrid?

The eco-friendliness of the 2018 Kia Optima Hybrid stems from its powertrain. Under the hood, you’ll find a 2.0-liter inline-4 gas-powered engine coupled with a battery-powered motor. Together, they make 154 horsepower for a swift, athletic ride. Unlike many hybrid competitors, the Optima Hybrid includes a traditional automatic transmission to create a smooth, quiet ride. And, of course, you’ll save plenty of money at the pump, earning 39 city/46 highway mpg. The Optima Hybrid’s battery is designed for long-term use, so you don’t have to worry about recharging it on a regular basis.

The 2018 Kia Optima Hybrid Plug-In is halfway between a traditional hybrid and an all-electric vehicle. In EV Mode, this sedan takes you around town on battery power alone. It has an all-electric range of 29 miles, and it’s EPA-rated for 103 MPGe combined. When you switch into hybrid mode, this model earns 40 mpg combined. Unlike the regular hybrid model, the Optima Hybrid Plug-In has to be recharged on a regular basis.

What Special Features Does the Optima Hybrid Have?

In addition to money saving hybrid power, the Optima Hybrid offers every modern comfort and tech feature you can dream up. Inside, you’ll find spacious seating for the whole family. In the EX, you’ll also find extra comfort and style in the leather-trimmed seats. Both Optima Hybrid models keep you connected with the Uvo infotainment system. Its Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities display smartphone apps, like Maps and Messages, directly on your central touchscreen. The EX model has an upgraded infotainment system, which includes voice-activated navigation and a bigger touchscreen interface. The EX also adds premium audio, with the 10-speaker Harman Kardon sound system.

As far as safety goes, the Optima Hybrid has a lot of high-tech features to offer. Both models come with a rearview camera, so you can spot any pedestrians or cyclists crossing your path. When you add optional driver aids, such as the blind spot detection and forward collision warning systems, your Optima Hybrid actively looks for danger to help you avoid it.
