Kia Hybrid Premium was a great find
By sii on
Vehicle
2012 Kia Optima Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid 6A)
Review
What a find! It's a bettery hybrid than the Camry and had more features for the same price as the Sonata. Lithium Polymer battery provides extra power during hard acceleration. The transition from EV battery mode to engine power was smooth unlike in the Sonata or the reviews. My guess is they tweaked the software. Not as sporty as a smaller car or a Mazda, but much better than other hybrids. Though it's a hybrid, it feels like a normal fully equiped car except for the quietness and good MPG.
Favorite Features
Cooled seats, heated steering wheel, heated seat and back on 4 seats, good Infinity stereo, bluetooth audio streaming, value for features, Lithium Polymer battery, Hybrid gauge
Suggested Improvements
Navigation system removes UVO and HD radio and not as good as Ford Sync. No plug-in hybrid version. No blind spot monitor. Would have liked a 2.0L Direct Injected engine with a battery.
