2017 Kia Optima Review

Sometime ago not much information is known about 2017 Kia Optima since the information have not been shared by the company officially. Even so, right now you can know about the information especially about the specifications and release date of this Optima. Even the name of this new car is 2017 series it is not the one that is planned to be released on 2017. Instead, this will be released in the mid of 2016. It is very reasonable then if general specifications and even changes applied to it. Here is the explanation.

The 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid builds on quite a reputation the reputation of the Optima sedan, which in its recently redesigned version broadens the appeal of this sedan with more than just sporty styling and a lot of features for the money.

If you were thinking of the reputation of the former Optima Hybrid, well, that’s a different thing. The last generation of the Optima Hybrid never quite realized its potential. Now, with what looks to be just as much of an emphasis on a more premium driving experience, plus a boost to its all-important mileage figures and far better-tuned core hybrid hardware the Optima Hybrid looks poised to erase a lot of the reasons buyers skipped over this model the first time around.

Kia aims for a 25-percent increase in its U.S. fleet-wide fuel efficiency by 2020; and the new 2017 Optima Hybrid and Optima Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV), introduced today at the Chicago Auto Show and due later this year, are key additions to the brand’s lineup to achieve that.

The 2017 Kia Optima is expected to go on sale in the second half of 2016 and will not receive any major changes and improvements. As mentioned above, the 4th-generation Optima has just been fully revamped, so it needs no major changes or improvements for the 2017 model year.

Kia manufacturer does not only offer new engine type for buyers to pick when 2017 Kia Optima is finally released later. They also offer new model and new changes in the design. The new model that is about to be offered for 2017 version is Optima Wagon. Although it is so, this model is only confirmed for Europe dealerships while there is no confirmation about any other dealerships including also US. For the design, it is not merely about the better comfort but also about some new details like key areas and trim levels.

2017 Kia Optima Specs

For the 2017 Optima Hybrid, Kia has targeted a ten-percent improvement in fuel economy over the outgoing model, which is rated 36 mpg city, 40 highway (38 mpg combined). With a combined figure of around 42 mpg, the new Sonata Hybrid might beat its cousin, the Sonata Hybrid, as well as the Toyota Camry Hybrid and end up with soundly better highway mileage than the Ford Fusion Hybrid.

Kia has released the new generation Optima 4-door sedan at the New York Auto Show and we were one of the first to show you the official pictures of the fully redesigned midsize sedan.

The Optima Hybrid and Optima Plug-In Hybrid look much the way you’d expect them to be just like the mainstream Optima sedan lineup, only with a few slight cosmetic differences, many of them serving a purpose to maximize aerodynamics. Lighting is achieved with modern LEDs, while these Hybrid models get satin-finish accents and special badging, but functionally the Optima Hybrid makes good with items like an active grille, a unique front aero treatment, a beveled rear bumper, and a rear diffuser that shrouds the exhaust tip, as well as more aerodynamic wheels. Altogether, that adds up to a very low 0.24 coefficient of drag.

2017 Kia Optima Engine

The might not be quite a lot of difference since the base engine may be the same with the previous one. However, it does not mean that Kia totally does not make any change with the engine. Instead, they add new engine type in the list of engine options of 2017 Kia Optima. The new engine type meant here is nothing else but hybrid engine, which is the combination between gas engine and electric motor. This is something has been confirmed since the manufacturer also confirmed about the addition of plug-in hybrid version sometimes ago.

The Sonata Hybrid has a new 1.62-kWh lithium-polymer battery pack that packages neatly underneath the trunk floor essentially where a spare tire would otherwise be, with no sacrifice to cargo space, back-seat space, or 60/40-split seat folding.

Meanwhile, the Optima PHEV gets a more powerful 50-kW electric motor, as well as some mechanical upgrades and a much-higher-capacity 9.8-kWh battery pack, which can be charged at 240V in less than three hours of less than nine hours on a standard household 120V AC plug.

Although the new Optima Hybrid and Optima PHEV are new models, they’re not mechanically unique. They have the same 154-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, the same six-speed automatic transmission packaged with a 38-kW (or 50-kW for the PHEV) single electric motor, and the same 1.62-kWh (or 9.8-kWh) lithium-ion battery pack, as the Hyundai Sonata Plug-In Hybrid.
