2017 Kia Optima Review

The 2017 Kia Optima hybrid body is nicely engineered and features a combination of high-tensile strength steel which has led to a stiffer and more durable chassis. The chassis consists over 50% of Advanced High Strength Steel. Other enhancements have helped improve its structural rigidity which provides better driving dynamics and crash protection.

Spacious sedans are continually losing market share to crossovers, but family-friendly four-doors such as the 2017 Kia Optima prove the segment still has plenty of life. The list of improvements to the 2017 version is mild in light of the full redesign it received last year, but the Optima line continues to grow with several new packages that allow shoppers to mix and match to find the right car. Add that to the Optima’s existing strengths a compelling value proposition, roomy seating and a big trunk and you’ve got a sedan that can stand toe to toe with all-stars such as the Honda Accord and Ford Fusion.

The midsize Optima slots right in the middle of Kia’s sedan lineup, above the smaller Rio and Forte but below the larger and more expensive Cadenza, upcoming Stinger four-door hatchback, and K900. The Optima hybrid and plug-in hybrid electric vehicle join the Niro and the Soul EV as Kia models with electrified powertrains.

2017 Kia Optima Engine

Under the hood of the front-wheel-drive Optima in its base LX form is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine (185 horsepower, 178 pound-feet) matched to a six-speed automatic transmission. Standard features include 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, remote locking and unlocking, a rearview camera, cruise control, a driver information display, selectable driving modes, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, height-adjustable front seats (with two-way lumbar adjustment for the driver), a 60/40-split rear seat, Bluetooth, a 5-inch central display, and a six-speaker audio system with a CD player, satellite radio and a USB port.

Kia has replaced the 2.4 L engine on the outgoing standard Optima hybrid with a 2.0 L direct injected (GDI) 4-cylinder engine which is capable of 154 hp. The engine is combined with a hybrid-starter generator and a 6-speed automatic transmission system. The 38 kW motor replaces the traditional torque converter; it produces 51 hp. The combination produces 193 hp at 6000 rpm. The engine is also fitted with electric oil and water pumps which help improve its efficiency.

The 2017 Kia Optima sedan is equipped with a standard 2.4-liter I-4 that produces 185 hp and 178 lb-ft of torque and paired to a six-speed automatic that delivers an EPA-rated 25/36 mpg city/highway for the base LX trim and 24/34 for the EX trim. The optional and fuel efficient 178-hp, 195 lb-ft of torque 1.6-liter turbocharged I-4 is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and delivers 28/37 mpg, but can only be equipped in the EX trim. The most powerful engine, a 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 that produces 245 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque (also mated to a six-speed automatic), manages to deliver 22/31 mpg and is available in the SX and SXL trims. The Optima does not offer all-wheel drive like the Ford Fusion and Subaru Legacy.

Moving over to the Optima plug-in, the model features the same 2.0 L 4-cylinder engine paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission system. The engine is combined with a 50 kW motor. Power is stored in a 9.8 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery pack. The battery allows for a 27 miles range on electricity alone. The model is estimated to have an electric-plus-petrol range of 600 miles. Recharging takes less the 3 hours when using a 240-volt charger and less than 9 hours with a 120-volt house-style plug. Output figures for the plug-in were not given so make sure to check later for updates.
