The 2012 Kia Optima Hybrid, Really Kia!!!

 

                                              The 2012 Kia Optima Hybrid, Really Kia!!!!!

Your designers and engineers should take a bow! This car has everything, even what the government wanted in a car’s engine with better gas mileage. The Kia Optima Hybrid has a 2.4L Hev with 206 Hp. 195lbs of torque.

This car for it’s large size gets 24mpg city and 40 miles highway. The Kia Hybrid engine cuts off when the hybrid stops. When the electrical load is low this saves fuel and cuts emissions. The electrical motor will kick in at just about any sped resulting in lower energy requirements and less pollutants emitted by the gasoline engine.At that time the brakes are applied the regenerative braking system charges the battery. The Kia Optima Hybrid 2012 has many Safety Awards & Features, like NHTSA 5 Star Crash Safety Rating, 2012 IIHS Top Safety Pick, Anti- Lock braking system and much more. It even has a tire pressure monitoring system, dual front advanced airbags,dual front seat airbags, mounted side airbags and side curtain airbags, all which keep our drivers and passagers safe!!

I can’t believe all the technology in this car, the dashboard is sure to have any driver at awe with all the awesome features.  From the Sirius Satellite AM/FM, DVD & MP, Audio System with Infinity Bluetooth wireless technology, cruse control, push button start with smart key to the lighted navigation system

Full front and back sunroof  with great seating in back. Enough space for 3 people comfortably. heated front seat for both passager and driver.Each have their own control setting.
 


It’s so cool when you start and turn off the Kia Optima Hybrid, the console displays a welcome and good bye message from Kia! The kids and I were fascinated by that as well.*smiling* The 2012 Kia Optima Hybrid Premium was delivered right to my door. A Beautiful Snow White Pearl

 

 

build on Optima’s stunning designs and designed to increase it’s aerodynamic efficiency. The trunk space is full size and you can even access the trunk from the back seat.

Kia Optima Hybrid is a Made In America vehicle,this is another great reason to buy a Kia we can support American made Cars. Kia serves as the “Official Automotive Partners of the NBA” and is manufactured in a facility in West point Georgia. Kia supports 1,200 direct jobs and 7,500 regionally!! Capable of producing 300,000 vehicles, that is a lot of cars! Do you know Kia Motor set Guinness World Record for lowest fuel consumption by a gasoline car traveling though all 48 Contiguous US States, geting nearly 65 mpg over nearly 8,000miles.

I can’t believe that this full size luxury car also has a warranty 10 years 100.000 mile limited power-train warranty, 5 years /60,000 basic warranty with 5 year/60,000 mile roadside assistance. Exterior of this world class vehicle has from fog lamps, outside mirrors that turn in so no other driver can hit your mirrors getting out of their car!

Wouldn’t it be cool if Kia took a full size car and added everything a big name full size car had in it and sold it for less, well Kia did just that with the Kia Optima Hybrid!

 

My name is Lisa and I’m a  Kia Blogger and soon hope to be a Kia Optima Hybrid owner!! Post brought to you by the Night Helper Blog!!!

One again Thanks Kia for allowing me this great opportunity to test drive your Kia Optima Hybrid!!

    With the gas prices going up, we should’ve opted for a hybrid car and this just confirms our first hunch to get a hybrid car. It looks very sophisticated and very spacious. I love it. 🙂
