Customer Review Summary for 2012 Kia Optima Hybrid
Great Look and Comfort
2012 Kia Optima HybridSmonday - , 05/07/2014
This car is very comfortable and I feel very safe in it, it feels like a much more expensive car. The back up camera was a bonus and I love the blue tooth integration.
I was a little disappointed in the mileage performance but still a huge improvement over my previous SUV, as I commute 50 miles each way the gas savings has paid off.
I have had a near miss with a flying object (ladder)onto the road and the handling was great.
Great looking car for an Excellent Price

Did Audi Design This Kia?
2012 Kia Optima HybridNewBird - , 03/31/2013
Yes. According to the Kia Salesforce, a former Audi engineer designed the 2012 Kia Optima Hybrid from tip to toe.
From the interior it looks and feels like an A4 (we're also an A6 owner, btw). Heat and A/C seats. 3 memory seat driver positions. 7" Media Center is touch screen, which is a welcome improvement over the dial-and-press functions of other Navigation center "mice." Not big on trunk space but we managed to fit our family of 5 in for a 3 day ski getaway... with food, 1 LG & 1 SM suitcase, 4 ski pants & 4 jackets in the trunk, it was a puzzle we enjoyed putting "together." EPA on the 3 hr trip *mountain roads, mind you* was 32 mpg going UP and 35 mpg going DOWN. 6 gear automatic with manual shift override is fun but not necessary to maximize epa. Sun & Moon Roofs. Sirius Satellite, IPod connection, 2 12V plugs and the voice of Siri built into the Nav Center is very pleasing.
