Competitive Hybrid by dan237 on 12/09/2013. Trim: 2013 Kia Optima Hybrid EX, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Great exterior appearance, interior comfort, handling, performance. Navigation screen is easy to work with.
Cons: Mainly minor issues - Voice activation a bit awkward, Bluetooth phone sync drops periodically, brake assist can be over-reactive, lighting on steering wheel mounted controls a bit dim, hard plastics around the console area, automatic light sensors need a bit more sensitivity.
Overall review: You don't know you are driving a hybrid. The main attraction is torque and the 6 speed transmission, providing for a seamless transition from electric to gas. The mileage is on par with EPA estimates, but it must be driven as a hybrid (smooth and steady). Driven with confidence through 2 snowstorms. Great value for the money, as long as the electric motor and lithium polymer battery hold up- though kia offers a generous warranty.
