Bumper to Bumper Excellence

The interior of the 2014 Kia Optima Hybrid Review has a great look and feel, and the large seats are probably its best feature. It’s ergonomic inside and there are many storage compartments inside. The battery pack in the trunk doesn’t take up too much space, which can sometimes be intrusive in other models. Today’s drivers have high standards and the 2014 Kia Optima meets and exceeds those expectations. Drivers and passengers won’t need to argue about the temperature. The Kia Optima has optional dual-zone climate control so you can both enjoy the ride comfortably. Luxury is what the Kia Optima strives to deliver and with satin chrome accents and high-gloss black trim inserts it certainly delivers! The 2014 Kia Optima’s steering wheel has been redesigned and an upgraded centre fascia continues the modern appearance.


The 2014 Kia Optima Hybrid Review has a racy look and the headlamps make the car look like it’s rolling even when it’s not. The Optima leverages its aerodynamic exterior to tires with low rolling resistance for increased fuel economy. The sharp-looking alloy wheels complement the silver-accented front and rear fascias. At the nose of the 2014 Kia Optima Hybrid, you will discover an Active Front Air Dam which helps to cool the engine when travelling at low speeds. In turn, this increases your fuel economy.

The model shown in the video is not a Hybrid and is a 2013 model. 

Hybrid Performance

The Kia Optima Hybrid is, indeed, a hybrid car, designed to use electricity to save on fuel. This doesn’t mean that the Optima Hybrid lacks power. If you’re looking for a combination of great gas-mileage and power, the 2014 Kia Optima Hybrid’s motor is hard-coupled to the inside of the transmission to give you fuel economy and power beneath the pedal. Zero compromising. Offering the driving experience of a 6-speed Sportmatic automatic, the Kia Optima Hybrid uses a lithium polymer battery pack giving the car its Transmission Mounted Electric Drive (TMED) for a sporty experience behind the wheel.
