Alan Gell discusses his week-long test drive of Kia's first entry into the popular electric-hybrid category.  The Optima Hybrid was complete with the Premium Package, loaded with driver conveniences.

The car is a practical family sedan.  It is comfortable, yet stylish in a sporty way.  It is definitely a ‘green’ car and fits right into that mid-size sedan category where it can play with all the big boys.   There are a few mid-size sedans that offer more electronic gadgets and such.  There are a few mid-size sedans that are faster, sleeker, or more comfortable.  But, bottom-line, this Kia Optima Hybrid makes you feel good about ‘going green’, drives great, looks good, and has a lot to offer for a low price.
