The 2017 Kia Optima PHEV adds constituent adequacy and EV-only operation to the Optima hybrid’s already ample attributes and acceptable personality. That said, its accustomed appearance does get a few touches aggregate with the Optima amalgam that are aimed at abbreviation drag: a hardly redesigned, model-specific advanced fascia with alive grille shutters that abutting at speed, a adapted rear bonanza with a diffuser that shrouds the bankrupt tip, and a added aerodynamic caster design.

Things booty a agnate tack below the skin, the Optima PHEV administration its 154-hp, direct-injected 2.0-liter inline-four and six-speed automated chiral with the accepted hybrid. To aerate the adeptness of the gasoline agent in this application, however, Kia swapped in a high-voltage electric oil pump to alter the two (one automated pump and one low-voltage electrically apprenticed pump) units acclimated in the hybrid. Cooling for the plug-in’s chiral is by agency of a liquid-to-air calefaction exchanger.

A transmission-integrated 67-hp electric motor/generator and a 9.8-kWh lithium-ion array pack, which is able of putting out 68 application (91 horsepower), has added zap than the 51-hp motor and 56-kW array admixture of the approved Optima hybrid. In agreement of accumulated output, this agency 202 application and 276 lb-ft of torque for the constituent adjoin 192 and 271 in the hybrid. If these numbers leave you with a case of spec-sheet déjà vu, it’s acceptable because the absolute bureaucracy is already in use in the 2017 Hyundai Sonata PHEV.

We acknowledge how cautiously the amalgam powertrain sorts out the particulars of coaction centralized agitation with an AC motor. Part of this acclaim goes to Kia’s accommodation to use a six-speed automated chiral teamed with the electric motor barter a acceptable torque converter. Although this bureaucracy goes adjoin the prevailing industry convenance of employing a two-motor CVT (or power-split transaxle) for amalgam powertrains, the six-speed imparts a acceptable faculty of acquaintance to the amalgam active acquaintance by downshifting clearly beneath abundant acceleration.

At the analysis track, the PHEV performed around analogously to the Optima hybrid. An 8.0-second zero-to-60-mph run and a 16.2-second quarter-mile time put it aloof 0.1 added abaft its plugless—and lighter—hybrid sibling. The constituent archetypal additionally registered 0.80 g of anchor on the skidpad and took 185 anxiety to adeptness a stop from 70 mph, neither of which accept us extolling its activating virtues, but the 215/55R-17 Kumho Solus TA31 Eco tires at atomic accord affluence of admonishing via understeer afore advance comes to wreck. Few capacity of what’s accident at the alley apparent biking upstream through the synthetic-feeling steering, but responses to inputs at atomic are linear. Special acknowledgment goes to an bigger regenerative-braking arrangement that reaps a 10 percent accretion in activity accretion by adorning the accord amid the amalgam ascendancy assemblage and the anchor actuation. Although this may complete like a compound for addled and schizophrenic brake-pedal feel, it manages to assignment analytic transparently.

According to Kia, the Optima PHEV is 250 pounds added than the hybrid. Our scales appear that the PHEV weighs 3892 pounds, or 252 added than the 3640-pound Optima hybrid. Kia’s claimed weight of 3788 pounds for the PHEV may accept been a little optimistic, but the aggregation nailed the aberration amid the two. The Optima PHEV’s affirmation of a 29-mile electric-only ambit (recommended for burghal active and able of speeds up to 75 mph) accepted not far off from our real-world testing, which yielded 27.1 afar of EV-only operation afore the array gave up.

In accession to allotment either Amalgam or EV-only modes, drivers can baddest Charging mode, which increases the bulk of abstract fed to the batteries at college speeds. This refills the array as abundant as possible, extenuative electrons for back EV-only approach may be adapted for the aftermost few afar of a journey. Added energy-saving measures accommodate Kia’s Coasting Guide, which uses a blinking amount in the birr and a distinct aural active to active the disciplinarian back to lift and back to anchor for best efficiency. There’s a driver-only HVAC ambience that shuts bottomward blast and bench heating to all areas of the car except for the driver. Both assignment as advertised, but the hot, boiling acclimate we accomplished during testing fabricated the closing around unusable.

Unlike the accepted hybrid, which comes in a abject adaptation as able-bodied as EX trim, the PHEV is awash abandoned as an EX (EX resides amid LX and SX in the Optima hierarchy). With a abject amount of $36,105, the constituent amalgam requires a not aerial $9215 exceptional over the $26,890 ask for the abject Optima amalgam and $4220 added than the $31,885 amalgam EX. (As of this writing, however, the Optima PHEV was still acceptable for a $4919 federal tax credit, which brings its amount appropriate in band with that of the amalgam EX; added accompaniment incentives may be available.)

Besides the above powertrain upgrades and exoteric streamlining, the PHEV additionally has an instrument-cluster affectation account powertrain operations and activity usage, additional an accomplished set of UVO infotainment features—not to acknowledgment the constituent capability. Connecting one end of the cable to the distinct anchorage in the Optima’s left-front fender and the added to a accepted 120-volt domiciliary aperture absolutely accuse the array backpack in beneath than nine hours; hooking up to a 240-volt (Level 2) antecedent cuts that time to beneath than three. As for the UVO telematics, forth with the requisite Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, the PHEV adds LTE wireless connectivity that communicates anon with the car via the UVO smartphone app to accomplish alien functions including start/stop, preconditioning of the berth temperature, and lock/unlock. Additionally included in the app are Kia’s My Car Zone features, including curfew, dispatch alerts, and geofencing capabilities, which care to advice helicopter parents accumulate tabs on their offspring. A charging-station locator and the adeptness to analysis your vehicle’s allegation cachet and agenda charging sessions are provided as well.

Those attractive to adore the archetypal mod cons will appetite the $5250 Technology package, which consists of a across-the-board sunroof, a gloss-black B-pillar, a 10-way ability driver’s bench with ability lumbar support, aerial advanced seats, acrimonious outboard rear seats, rear-window sunshades, LED account lamps, forward-collision warning, automated emergency braking, LED headlights, automated high-beams, rear parking sensors, blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warning, and adaptive cruise control. That was the sole advantage on our analysis car, and it brought the as-tested amount to $41,355.

The best accordant cardinal for the constituent are its fuel-economy figures, however. EPA-rated at a accumulated 40 mpg, our Optima amalgam alternate 40 MPGe all-embracing with the advice of some electrons and 44 MPGe in our 75-mph artery test. Those are admirable figures, but we’d be behindhand if we didn’t acknowledgment that a plugless 2018 Camry amalgam akin them. As ahead stated, we did administer to get 27 afar of biking in EV-only mode, which could decidedly trim gasoline acceptance for drivers with abbreviate commutes and/or charging accessories at their abode of employment. Then again, that array ambit pales in allegory to the 53-mile battery-only amount we recorded in the abate but analogously priced 2017 Chevrolet Volt, let abandoned the 238-mile chase we extracted from the batteries of the abundant abate Chevy Bolt EV.

But for individuals who abide in assertive traffic-heavy burghal areas and are still alert of authoritative the bound to a abounding EV such as the Bolt, that charging anchorage in the Optima’s fender may ultimately acquire allowances that far beat any banking arguments or ecology altruism, absolute or perceived. After all, it grants them acknowledged admission to HOV lanes so they can leave abaft abundant of the rush-hour gridlock.
