2017 Kia Optima Hybrid Power and Fuel Economy Specs
After a complete redesign, the 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid is more attractive than ever with an attractive price tag to go along with a new look. With a starting price that stands at $25,995, the Kia Optima Hybrid will not break the bank at the dealership or the fuel pump. An upgrade to the top-of-the-line Optima Hybrid EX trim adds leather interior, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a 10-speaker Harman Kardon audio system and more for just $30,990. When you consider affordability in this 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid vs 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid comparison, the Kia hybrid is the more affordable option.
Under the hood, the Kia Optima Hybrid plays host to a 2.0-liter inline-4 Full Parallel Hybrid System that incorporates a 38-kilowatt electric motor to make a fun-to-drive 192 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque. Married to a six-speed automatic transmission, the hybrid provides an invigorating drive and will make 39 mpg in the city and 46 mpg on the highway. With an automatic transmission in place rather than the continuously variable transmission of the Camry Hybrid, the Optima Hybrid will provide a more responsive drive.
Toyota Camry Hybrid models employ a 2.5-liter Atkinson cycle four-cylinder engine that is paired with a high-torque electric motor to make 200 horsepower. Married to a continuously variable transmission, the Camry Hybrid will make 42 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway when you get behind the wheel. Upper trim levels sacrifice fuel economy to add luxury, making just 40 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway.
Entertainment and connectivity are a highlight of the Kia Optima Hybrid spec sheet that the Toyota Camry Hybrid cannot match. With Kia UVO eServices technology at your disposal, you will have access to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto applications via a standard touchscreen display. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are not available for any Toyota models.
