More Features than the CompetitionBy Jim Craddock, Sep 17, 2013I've had the car for a few weeks now, and I love it. The Kia Optima Hybrid EX has just about every feature you can think of from folding mirrors, to lighted doorsills to heated back seats and air-conditioned front seats. The stereo is phenomenal. The safety rating is the best. The battery is a brand new type for cars - lithium polymer. This is the type of battery found in MacBooks. The warranty on the battery is 100,000 miles. Mileage is great as well. I drive mostly city miles and on my second tank I am averaging 36MPG. Owners of the regular Optima report their mileage increases significantly around 1500 miles, so I am looking forward to even better mileage. There is not another hybrid in this price range that looks as sport as the Optima. With 2014, there are even some additional small exterior changes which will make it look even sharper. I was torn between the Ford Fusion Hybrid, the Optima Hybrid, the Sonata Hybrid, and the Chevy Volt. All are nice cars. The Ford prices out much higher (to get the Titanium you are looking mid-30's) versus the $28k I paid for my Optima. The Volt would be my first choice if it had a few more features, longer range, and better styling. The Sonata's styling is more conservative and it only comes with light tan or light grey interior. The interior colors and styling were the dealbreakers for me. The Sonata does have a lifetime (for the original owner) warranty on the Hybrid battery, but 100,000 is probably close enough to lifetime for me. The one thing I did not like about the Optima Hybrid was the wheels. They are very unattractive. But, I had them switched out as part of the purchase and that sealed the deal. If you want style, great MPG, and all the features, get the Kia Optima Hybrid EX. ...moreStyling, MPG, Features, Price
