Kia Motors America today confirmed US MSRP for the hybrid version of the Optima, and it’s $27,250, including a $750 destination and handling charge.

Set to hit the market in June, the Optima Hybrid promises to deliver 40 mpg highway, and something like 35 mpg in city, which is good for its size and class. The hybrid powertrain has a total output of 209 hp and 265 Nm of torque which means 0 to 60 takes 9.2 seconds and the top speed is just 120 mph which is walking pace!

One nice trick of the car is the ECO Guide which is represented through the center console screen to promote economical driving habits. Standard features of the car include items like six-way adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support, illuminated vanity mirrors and a trip computer. The LX models also get push-button start, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, while the optional Technology Package offers panoramic sunroof, 17-inch alloy wheels, Sat-Nav CD/Audio system and an eight-speaker Infinity audio system.

At 28 grand, Kia Optima hybrid is a good green car. That said, the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid which is basically the same car underneath, is about 700 bucks cheaper. Then again, the Optima is a better looking car than the Sonata.
