After 53 years and 24 movies, you would think we would all be tired of James Bond.
No, we definitely are not.
Before Daniel Craig’s second go at Bond in Spectre, he starred in Skyfall. If you remember, many of the police cars were pretty good looking, and a few were definitely new Kia Optimas.
If you think that this sweet ride is only available in the UK, then you, my friend, are blissfully mistaken. You can soon buy a 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid in Atlanta! Ever wonder what’s under the hood or makes up the interior? That’s no secret anymore, either. You may not be riding around with Judi Dench or Daniel Craig after leaving your Lithia Springs area Kia store with a new Optima, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t experience the car that made the movie.
Now in 2015, three years removed from Skyfall, Kia is breaking through new barriers. Kia has a five-year plan full of exciting new improvements and is poised to take leadership of the eco-friendly vehicles market.
From green car technology to driver-less cars, the road to 2020 is paved with technology advancements as they continue their commitment to excellence. As part of the first step in this ambitious plan, the 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid will be the flagship vehicle.
The future is upon us and, with these refreshing designs, it’ll be both shaken and stirred. Behold the grand features of the 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid:
More specifically, the 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid engine is a direct injected 2.0 liter I-4 paired to an electric motor. This is basically the same wondrous piece of technology that comes in the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid with a few upgrades for 2017.
With 193 horsepower unloaded to your wheels every time you push the pedal to the medal like Bond on a chase, the 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid power throttles at nearly 20 percent more than the power of the 2016 version.
One of the many convenient Kia Optima features for those times when your hands of full of important spy tools (or after a day at the grocery store in Lithia Springs).
Wireless Smartphone Charging Tray
The Kia Optima technology has to be sleek and smart enough for a guy like Bond, so your mobile device that is constantly losing battery as it is inundated with important work messages will, indeed, know Tomorrow Never Dies.
This will help you stay aware of potential followers (or tailgaters) to stay safe in busy Atlanta traffic (or if you’re just in the mood to drive like 007 himself).
Like the Bond series, Thornton Road Kia in Lithia Springs has been around for over 50 years and will continue to be here throughout the implementation of Kia’s new green plan. Both the 2017 Optima Hybrid and Bond 25 may debut near one another, and you’ll want to be the first to experience each in their glory as you prepare for the arrival of the 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid in Atlanta. That’s Optima. Kia Optima!
