Hybrid cars are great options, especially for those who are fuel economy-conscious and environment-friendly. Being able to switch from a motor to gas engine is a relatively new concept, but the technology has already made leaps and bounds in recent years.
Car manufacturer Kia is not about to get left behind. That’s why it seeks to maintain its playing edge in the hybrid marker with the 2016 Kia Optima hybrid.
Variety of Hybrid Levels
The 2.4-liter four-cylinder variant features a six-speed automatic transmission, as well as an estimated horsepower of 185 horsepower with 178lb.-ft. torque. The other entry with the same transmission racks up 247 horsepower and 260lb-ft. torque. The 1.6 engine, meanwhile, delivers 178 horsepower and 195lb-ft. torque.
Aside from those under-the-hood specs, what makes this Hybrid all the more enticing are the nifty tech features that help driving become a much more comfortable and safe experience.
What makes the Optima a sincerely convenient hybrid are the tech additions to it. You’d be impressed with the 360-degree camera view from around your car, making it easier for you to maneuver in between cars and around corners. Supplementing that is the blind-spot detection technology, rear-cross traffic alert, and even automatic braking.
