Kia Optima Hybrid 2013 Review

Kia has officially announced the update for the 2013 Optima Hybrid, featuring a more performance-driven and fuel-efficient powertrain as well as more cargo space and premium features.

The Optima Hybrid features numerous powertrain refinements for smoothness and drivability, including a more robust 47 HP electric traction motor, a stronger Hybrid Starter Generator (HSG) and a more powerful 47 kW Lithium Polymer battery. These changes enable the model to have a combined output of 199 bhp (148 kW) and 235 lb-ft (318 Nm) of torque.

The Optima Hybrid is now available in two trim levels, base and EX. The base model achieves an EPA estimated 36 mpg city, 40 mpg highway and 38 mpg combined, making the Optima Hybrid more efficient than its predecessor.
