The 2019 Kia Optima is completely redesigned. This new hybrid model offers you wonderful gas mileage, and updated powertrain and a number of upgrades compared to last year. This year, the Optima has a more efficient engine, a stronger battery, and a more powerful motor.

Conventional Automatic

Typically, hybrids have a CVT transmission (a continuously variable automatic transmission) but the Kia Optima has a conventional six-speed automatic. While it’s unconventional to be conventional, it offers you a smoother, quieter ride.

And another bonus is the battery pack—it fits right under the rear seat. Because of this move, you have more trunk space, always a plus.

The new Optima hybrid still has a 60/40 split-folding rear seat, giving you plenty of pass-through space.
