Now in its second year of production, the Kia Optima Hybrid Base sedan rolls into 2012 essentially unchanged from the previous year. The hybrid system under the hood consists of an electric motor and a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder Atkinson cycle gas engine, which produce a combined 206 hp and 195.4 lb-ft of torque. Working alone, the electric motor generates 40 hp and 154 lb-ft of torque, while the gas engine delivers 166 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque. Both mate to a 6-speed Sportmatic automatic transmission with overdrive. The EPA estimates fuel economy numbers for the hybrid powerplant at 34 mpg city/39 highway. The powertrain also includes a 1.4-kHw lithium-polymer (Li-PB) battery. Standard safety equipment includes 6 airbags, electronic stability control, traction control and 4-wheel antilock brakes with brake assist and electronic brakeforce distribution.

Inside the Optima Hybrid's comfortable, well-equipped cabin, such upscale features as push-button start with a Smart Key, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, a temperature-controlled glovebox, Bluetooth and dual-zone automatic climate control with rear vents all come standard. Power windows and door locks, rear reading lights and cruise control are among the other standard features. Kia also includes a 6-speaker audio system with SiriusXM satellite radio, a USB port and dash-mounted tweeters, as well as steering-wheel-mounted audio controls. A Convenience Package adds an 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat with memory and a UVO voice-activated infotainment system with a rear-view camera, while a Premium Technology Package also includes leather upholstery, a 4-way power-adjustable passenger seat, heated and cooled front seats, a leather-wrapped heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, a navigation system with SiriusXM Traffic, a panoramic sunroof and an 8-speaker Infinity audio system. In addition, Kia adds HD radio to the Premium package for 2012. Outside, the Optima Hybrid displays a unique black-and-chrome grille, low front and rear bumpers, a rear spoiler and unique LED taillights. The Premium package adds new power folding side mirrors for 2012. The Optima Hybrid rides on 16-inch alloy wheels, while the Premium package adds 17-inch alloy wheels.
