I've owned BMW, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz in the lasts 10 years and have been shopping around for a PHEV for months. I was considering and test driving the Ford Fusion Energi, Chevy Volt, Totoyta Prius, Nissan Leaf, BMW i3, Huyndai Sonota Hybrid, Tesla Model S but finally traded in my Mercedes for a KIA Optima EX PHEV for its styling, infotaiment system, technologies, range, price/value ratio, long warranty. This car met all my expectations: stylish, smooth/quiet/comfortable interior, reasonable EV range. It did deliver the 29 all EV range as advertised. I've installed a 240V outlet and used an inexpensive level 2 charger I bought from Amazon.com for less than $250, it charged the car from empty to full battery in less than 3 hours. Well done KIA!
25miles per gallon hybrid
At 11k now in a lease for 39 months and it only gets 25mpg in city. 3 times dealerships say it just not broken in yet. Do not buy!!! Very poor service follow up. Filed case with corporate and still have yet to hear from them. Over a month now.
Best Value Hybrid
Bought 2017 Optima Hybrid in November 17. It was the only Hybrid Optima on the lot out of dozens of gas ones. I had been comparing Accord, Camry, and Malibu Hybrids and read the Optima Hybrid got 46 mpg on the hwy. That was only 2 or 3 miles per gallon less than the best of them so I did some pricing. My choice was for the 26,800 premium with pretty standard features, good radio with Android Audio and SiriusXM, dual zone climate control, tilt, cruise control,pwr windows and Door locks. At the time of purchase, there was a $5,000 rebate offered. I could not believe it. All this car for less than a Prius prime. I have driven it to over 18k miles in 6 months after taking several trips and I really enjoy and appreciate this car. My first trip was from Phoenix to Vegas. Did it on one tank of gas. The car went 828 miles. Very impressive! Really like having a 6 speed transmission instead of a CVT. Driven properly there are days when it averages 60 to 61 mpg city hwy mix. It can go up to 80mph in electric mode. 10 year 100 k warranty and a 5star safety rating I think the value is unbeatable.

The fully redesigned 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid proves that gas-electric hybrid models can offer shoppers more than just a fuel-saving powertrain. The Optima Hybrid is a stylish midsize sedan with a comfortable interior, long warranty coverage and enough standard features, even at the entry trim level, to satisfy the majority of buyers.

The conventional Optima model was completely redesigned last year, but the Hybrid was left alone. For 2017, the Hybrid gets the same restyled exterior, improved handling, quieter ride and more upscale interior of the new-generation Optima. Some trim levels also receive more standard technology and available packages.

Propulsion for the Optima Hybrid comes from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that combines with an electric motor to produce a total of 192 horsepower. Unlike most other midsize hybrid sedans, the Optima Hybrid utilizes a conventional six-speed automatic transmission instead of a continuously variable transmission, which results in a more familiar gear-shifting experience. Fuel economy for the Optima Hybrid is EPA-rated at 42 mpg combined (39 city/46 highway).

The interior of the new Optima Hybrid boasts a cleaner, more elegant design than the outgoing model and improved front seats with better thigh support. The quality of materials has been upgraded, as well, and now gives the impression of a much pricier vehicle. Abundant standard features include heated mirrors, dual-zone automatic climate control, and an infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality.

There's plenty of space inside, especially in the roomy front seats, although tall passengers may find rear seat headroom a bit lacking. A generous greenhouse provides an airy feeling and good visibility on three sides, but the rear design inhibits rearward vision somewhat. The trunk capacity of 13.4 cubic feet puts the Optima Hybrid near the top of its class.

The Optima Hybrid comes in two trim levels: Premium and EX. The Premium trim level comes very well equipped, but buyers can add the Convenience package to get additional power accessories and technology features. The EX model includes the Convenience package, plus a number of luxury items, which can be augmented further by a Technology package. Whatever your preference, let Edmunds help you find the 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid that best meets your needs.
