When you’re looking for a new hybrid vehicle in Georgia but want to make sure what you’re getting is truly state of the art, take a closer look at a 2016 Kia Optima Hybrid in Atlanta. Of course, just the fact that it’s a hybrid is pretty high-tech, but the 2016 Kia Optima Hybrid isn’t afraid to show off just how much tech it has, especially in the interior!
I’d scheduled a Kia Optima Hybrid test drive online and went down to Thornton Road Kia in Lithia Springs to take a new 2016 Kia Optima Hybrid for a spin to see what the team had been talking about when they said it was one of the most advanced cars Kia’s come out with yet.
After getting in, I could see what they meant right away. The interior boasts a ton of tech, but I’ve narrowed it down to the top 10 2016 Kia Optima Hybrid tech features you’ll flip for:
Eco Switch On the Steering Wheel
If you’re less worried about pedal to the metal performance and more interested in saving even more gas, this Kia Optima Hybrid Eco Switch system restricts engine and transmission performance in favor of fuel economy. Even better, it’s right on the steering wheel where you can find it with ease.
USB/Auxiliary Input Jacks
Though your 2016 Kia Optima Hybrid comes with Sirius Satellite Radio, sometimes you just want plug in your smartphone and listen to your own curated list.
Bluetooth Wireless Technology
The good people at Kia know that their customers are busy professionals, moms, dads, coaches …you know, busy people who may have to field a lot of phone calls in addition to their hectic list of activities in Lithia Springs. With built in Bluetooth technology, fumbling for your phone while driving is a thing of the past.
Steering Wheel-Mounted Audio Controls
When you’re rocking out and want to adjust the volume, forget reaching over to the center console – the volume control is right on your steering wheel!
Sirius Satellite Radio
Whatever type of music you want, streaming playlists, and no commercials. You definitely want Sirius Satellite Radio in your 2016 Kia Optima Hybrid.
Supervision Meter Cluster With LCD Display Design
The Supervision Meter Cluster makes it easy to monitor the operating efficiency of your 2016 Kia Optima Hybrid – you never need to wonder how well it’s doing saving you money!
UVO2 eServices With Rear-Camera Display
This is an optional 2016 Kia Optima Hybrid accessory, but once you have it you’ll wonder how you drive without it. It has automatic crash notification, road-side assistance, service reminders and tracking, along with geo-fencing, speed warnings and a curfew setting that lets you know when your teen driver is out too late.
Push-Button Start With Smart Key
The Optima Hybrid Smart Key remote lets you start or stop the engine with the single push of a button – high tech AND easy to use!
Power Door Locks With Remote Keyless Entry
Part of what makes the Smart Key awesome is the keyless entry option… don’t worry about finding your keys at the bottom of your purse, your Kia knows it’s you and unlocks the door for you.
Illuminated Glove Box
At first, this may not seem like a big deal, but have you ever been stuck somewhere in the evening and really needed to get a map out of a glovebox in a dark interior? It feels impossible, right? Not when your glove box is already lit up!
