The 2018 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 Optima Hybrid was completely redesigned last year and carries over the restyled exterior, improved handling, quieter ride and more upscale interior into 2018.

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 uses a conventional six-speed automatic transmission instead of a continuously variable automatic transmission, which results in a more familiar gear-shifting experience. Fuel economy for Kia's hybrid sedan is EPA-estimated at 42 mpg combined (39 city/46 highway).

The interior of the Optima Hybrid boasts a clean, elegant design, with quality materials. 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 could find rear 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, and the available 60/40-split folding seats add even more utility.

The Optima Hybrid comes in two trim levels: Premium and EX. The Premium trim level comes very well-equipped, but buyers can choose the Convenience package to tack on additional power accessories and technology features. The EX model includes the Convenience package plus a number of luxury items, and it can be augmented further by a Technology package.

Fully loaded, the Kia Optima Hybrid can be equipped with luxuries such as heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, acoustically insulated window glass, and rear window sunshades. A full suite of active safety features and driver aids is also available, with adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning. Whatever your preference, let Edmunds help you find the 2018 Kia Optima Hybrid that best meets your needs.
