Expert Rating

Our expert ratings are based on seven comprehensive criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

If you're a fan of the Kia Optima's good looks and value among other family sedans, then the Optima Hybrid marries those virtues to a gas-electric hybrid system for some of the best fuel economy figures for a car this size. Consider the Optima Hybrid, then, as a perfect combination of style and sensibility.

What's New for 2015

After a 2014 refresh, the Optima Hybrid enters 2015 with minor changes. A laminated windshield is now standard on the EX and optional on the base model.

Choosing your Hyundai Optima Hybrid

The Optima Hybrid comes with one powertrain, a 2.4-liter four-cylinder and an electric motor with 47 kW battery to produce a combined 199 horsepower, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. This achieves fuel economy figures of up to 36 mpg city and 40 mpg highway for a combined 38 mpg, according to the EPA.

Buyers choose from two trim levels, Base and EX, with significantly different equipment levels:

Kia Optima Hybrid


The base Optima Hybrid comes standard with features such as LED tailights, 16-inch alloy wheels, power amenities, dual-zone automatic climate control, push-button keyless start, USB and Bluetooth connectivity, and a rear-seat cargo pass-through. The available Convenience Package adds laminated front windows, LED front lights, 8-way power driver's seat and the UVO infotainment system with telematics and a backup camera.

Kia Optima Hybrid


The uplevel EX adds a bit more luxury (and more than $6,000 to the hybrid's MSRP) in the form of 17-inch wheels, laminated windows, HID headlamps, power-folding mirrors, power driver's seat, leather upholstery, heated and cooled front seats and UVO infotainment with an Infinity audio system, navigation with real-time traffic and backup camera. The Technology Package adds a panoramic sunroof, blind-spot monitoring and rear parking sensors.

CarsDirect Tip

If your mission is economy, stick with the base model. The EX offers nice features, including more safety tech, but isn't the best value.
