For 2016, Kia completely redesigned Optima, adding more refinement and content to the popular midsize sedan than ever before. The hybrid version, however, soldiers on unchanged for another year. Thanks to generous cash on the hood to move the not insubstantial inventory of Optima Hybrids, you can now lease one for significantly less than what it costs to lease a standard Optima.
Dating back to 2011 and last refreshed 2014, Optima Hybrid remains a quiet, spacious, and attractive-looking family sedan with touchy brakes and a jerky powertrain. Here's what you need to know about leasing one.
