2015 Kia Optima Buyer's Guide

Bringing a significant upgrade in fuel-economy to the Kia brand’s athletic, aggressive mid-size sedan, the 2015 Kia Optima Hybrid also serves up a number of distinctive style cues that signal its greener positioning. It’s yet another example of how the brand keeps the Optima at the top of its game, which is particularly important in the mid-size sedan segment, where automakers are so fiercely competitive. All that effort has paid off, however, and for both customers and the brand alike: For the former, the Optima Hybrid leverages its bold positioning to provide a particularly efficient alternative to run-of-the-mill sedans, while for Kia, the benefits include particularly strong sales. In fact, the Kia Optima is literally the best-selling vehicle from the Kia brand.

The 2015 Kia Optima Hybrid backs up its brazen good looks with a high-efficiency, hybrid propulsion system: In the mix here are a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine that makes 159 hp and 154 lb.-ft. of torque, an innovative 47-kW lithium-polymer battery, and a permanent-magnet electric motor that pitches in with 47 hp and 151 lb.-ft. of torque, all of which combine for a system total of 199 hp and 235 lb.-ft. of torque—and an EPA line of 36 mpg city/40 mpg highway/38 mpg combined.

Why buy the 2015 Kia Optima?

Although the mid-size sedan segment has added some surprisingly stylish choices of late, there’s still nothing quite like the looks of the 2015 Kia Optima Hybrid. It continues to stand out from the crowd, and remember, because it is such a crowd, those rivals might not seem so stylish after you see hundreds of thousands of the exact same models on the road each day. That isn’t an issue with the Optima, of course, and it builds on its successful style with standout ratings for both fuel efficiency and safety: Beyond its EPA line, the Optima Hybrid has a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating—with 5 stars in all three crash tests—from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.


The 2015 Kia Optima roster also offers a standard gas engine and available hi-po turbo.
