2011 Kia Optima Hybrid

2011 Kia Optima Hybrid Optima - Modesto, CA 10/01/2012

I purchased the 2011 Kia Optima Hybrid on 8/17/2012 and absolutely LOVE it! It has only been a month and a half, and I have already put 3,000 miles in it! Very good looking car. People stare at it and often walk up to it to look inside. The performance is very good for a 4 cylinder/hybrid. My only problem with it is the acceleration time when I punch the gas while entering the freeway. It takes about 2 seconds to respond. The interior is beautiful! The dash board is not plastic like the majority of other vehicles. It's vinyl! Very sleek! The interior is very spacious. Being a 6ft guy, I have so much leg room in the back, as well as headroom. The seats are not as soft as luxury vehicles, but its' very smooth suspension makes up for it. Also, it may tell you in the brochure that it get 35/40 mpg, but with the way I drive, I get 38 city and 46 highway. The price is is not bad at all for what it offers. If it were a Toyota or Honda, this same car would cost 20% more and that's a lot of money! Overall, this car attracts so many people and has a great feel when driving. Definitely recommending it for anyone!

Excellent value for a great car-- fun to drive, too!

First Hybrid

2011 Kia Optima Hybrid Scuba - Fort Worth, Texas 12/04/2012

So far I am very impressed with the Optima Hybrid. The comfort and styling rivals luxury cars I have driven including Mercedes and Lexus, although there is a little more road noise than the higher priced luxury cars. The features are outstanding including heated front and rear seats and cooled front seats, panoramic sunroof and rear view camera. The first thing I noticed when I started the car was that there was no noise at all. In fact, the salesman and I both turned the car off and back on because we weren't sure it had even started. I was concerned that the 4 cylinder engine would lack power, but I have had no problem punching it to enter the freeway or change lanes. I have total confidence that the car will perform in a tight spot. Braking is equally impressive. I paid a little more than I had planned to get the improved MPG of the hybrid. Mileage is greatly dependent on driving conditions and climate. I notice a significant difference in MPG when running the AC or idling for a long time. So far I'm averaging around 32 MPG but expect closer to 35 when cooler weather arrives. There's lots to like about this car. Kia has come a long way and I can see myself trading up to a newer version of the Optima in a year or two.
