2012 Kia Optima Hybrid

2012 Kia Optima Hybrid Review

(3 Stars) 

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

It used to be buyers chose hybrid models because of the improved fuel economy and not much else. Fortunately car makers chose to offer the market better designs and more features with these cars. The 2012 Kia Optima Hybrid is a prime example of this. In many ways the hybrid is indistinguishable from the conventional vehicles of the Optima line. It features the same attractive exterior body style with plenty of nice accents. In the cabin, things are bit more upscale than one would expect with state of the art technology and good quality materials used in a more refined design than most other midsize sedans.

Of course the thing that really sets this car apart is it fuel economy thanks to the electric motor. For the buyer looking for an affordable hybrid that looks like it isn’t, the Optima Hybrid is worth a look.
