When you are looking for a car that offers all the advantages of hybrid vehicles plus good range, the Kia Optima Hybrid, and the Ford Fusion Hybrid would be your top considerations. While both cars offer great fuel savings and good mileage, further comparisons are important to ensuring that the cars offer you the feature you want.

Exteriors and Safety

The Ford Fusion Hybrid does offer plenty of innovative features when it comes to looks. An attractive yet elegant design makes the car a pleasure to drive on the roads. The Kia Optima, by contrast, looks less likely to attract attention, but it does offer some features worth considering. Also, the Kia vehicle is well-rated when it comes to safety. It takes the top ratings for crash tests for overall safety and for side impact. So if you are looking for a safe ride and are okay with a car that does not look too sporty but is not dull looking either, then the Kia Optima could be the car of your choice.

Mileage and Charging

One of the things you are most likely to worry about is the range. For hybrid vehicles range is a critical factor. The Kia Optima offers good range, but that is not the only reason you want to buy this car. It is known for its good fuel economy and may even score over the Ford Fusion in this regard. The car offers convenient charging as well. These are major plus points for any hybrid car. If you don’t want to spend hours at the charging station and you want good range and excellent fuel efficiency, then the Kia Optima is the car worthy of your attention.


The interiors are above average as well for the Kia Optima. While the Ford does offer plush leather seats for those who cannot do without plenty of entertainment options and conveniences for driver and passengers, the Kia Optima is the vehicle to choose. Some people may feel that the seats for the rear passengers are too small, but this is a minor detail and may not detract much from the enjoyment of your journey. If you love your hybrid cars and need to buy yours on a budget, then the Kia Optima is the vehicle to choose. One thing to remember is that the Ford Fusion comes with plenty of in-car conveniences; however, these extra features also carry an additional charge.

If you want to test drive the Kia Optima and you are looking for convenient car loans for your hybrid vehicle, the right Kia dealership can assist you.
