The 2012 Kia Optima Hybrid set the Guinness Book of World records for the lowest ever fuel consumption by a gasoline powered vehicle. For 2013, Kia has raised the bar on the Kia Hybrid model by making it more powerful and fuel-efficient than ever. Here’s what’s new in the 2013 Kia Optima Hybrid:
The 2013 Kia Optima Hybrid has been updated with an all-new engine that provides even more power and efficiency than the 2012 Optima Hybrid model. Under the hood, the 2013 Optima Hybrid is powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that is paired with a 47 horsepower electric motor. This new engine produces a combined 199 horsepower and 235 lb-ft of torque, which provides this hybrid sedan with responsive and sporty performance notes. In addition to improved power, this new powertrain boosts the efficiency of this hybrid to 36 mpg city/40 mpg highway.
When designing the new Optima Hybrid, the designers at Kia used lightweight aluminum panels to shape the exterior. The result is a sleek and streamlined look that provides this mid-sized sedan with a modern edge. The 2013 Optima Hybrid features a more compact and upright body style than the outgoing model. With this updated body, you will benefit from extra headroom and more space in the trunk. The Optima Hybrid seats five passengers comfortably, making it easy to bring friends along for the ride.
New Trim Levels
This year, the 2013 Kia Optima Hybrid is newly offered in two trim levels: Base and EX. The EX model now comes outfitted with exciting extra equipment such as a navigation system, premium audio, a backup camera, and more. Whether you choose the Base or the EX level, you will benefit from increased fuel-efficiency, engine power, and spaciousness over the 2012 model.
