As the new line up for Honda, there’s little imagination and creativity incorporated into the latest hybrid model. It features the same curved edges and designs as the previous Honda releases. The Optima, on the other hand, features a new superstructure that complies with all safety interior features. It also has a newly designed spacious cabin, which makes it an entirely new release for Kia.

Despite lacking in comparable horsepower, there are no “weird noises” or engine shifting shortcomings for the new Optima release. All-in-all, if you’re looking for reliability, performance, and accommodation, the Optima Hybrid emerges as an overall winner! Find out more at Gateway Kia in Warrington PA.
