With European styling, the redesigned Optima Hybrid features an upscale cabin and is 10% more fuel-efficient with a combined 42 MPG. With smarter aerodynamics like an active grille, which automatically opens and closes at high and low speeds, the Hybrid is able to improve aerodynamics while optimizing engine bay cooling.

The Optima Hybrid features a full parallel hybrid system which pairs an electric motor with a Gasoline Direct Engine (GDI) that work together or independently based on driving conditions to offer maximum power and fuel efficiency.

Advances safety technologies are standard on the Optima Hybrid which earned the model IIHS Top Safety Pick and NHSTA 5-star safety crash ratings. A Front Collision Warning System will alert you to a possible impact and Autonomous Emergency Braking which will bring the vehicle to a complete stop to potentially avoid a collision or reduce damage.  Other key driver assistance systems include Advanced Smart Cruise Control that automatically slows or accelerates as needed, Blind Spot Detection and Lane Departure Warning System and a Rear-View Camera. LED lighting technologies feature Dynamic Bending Lights that improve visibility when turning High Beam Assist that automatically adjust.
