- The hybrid sedan is still boasting a sleek design, as well as an array of exciting features and stellar fuel economy.

The 2016 model is a carryover from the previous model and has continued to offer all the qualities that Simi Valley consumers love, including the unique European design, an abundance of top-of-the-line features and superior value.
A Powerful Engine that Offers a Smooth Ride
The Optima Hybrid is offered in two trip levels, including the Hybrid and the Hybrid EX. It is powered by a 2.4 liter engine that works alongside a 47 horsepower electric motor, which offers drivers 235 pounds of torque and 199 horsepower. The electric motor is powered by a 47 kW lithium polymer battery, and the automatic, six speed transmission ensures all of the power produced goes to the Optima Hybrid’s front wheels.
Luxury and Innovation
There are also a number of unique exterior features that work to enhance the aerodynamics and set this hybrid sedan apart. This includes extra vents in the front bumper, which increase the airflow and minimize drag. The low rolling resistance tires have also been mounted to a set of 16 inch alloy wheels or the 17 inch allow wheels, based on which trim you choose. Both options help to reduce drag and weight when the vehicle is moving.
