Kia Optima

Buying a new vehicle comes with a lot of considerations. You really have to think about what you need out of your ride to ensure that you can get to your daily destinations and occasional road trips with ease. Two very important considerations to keep in mind are the fuel efficiency and gas tank size of your vehicle. Depending on which kind of car, truck, or SUV you buy, you’ll be spending a varying amount of money on gas. And since most drivers want to minimize the amount of money they drop on fuel every month, this is something you’ll want to pay close attention to. So, how does the 2018 Kia Optima fare when it comes to fuel efficiency? Keep reading to find out.

Tank Size

The size of the gas tank in your vehicle is important, as a larger tank will let you go farther between fill-ups. It can also save you gas because you won’t have to spend fuel driving around as you look for a gas station. When it comes to the Kia Optima, the size of your tank will really depend on which model you choose. If you get the standard option, you’ll get an 18.5-gallon tank. If you instead opt for a hybrid, you can enjoy a 15.9-gallon tank. And finally, going with the hybrid plug-in means you’ll be driving around with a 14.5-gallon tank.

Gas Range

The gas range of your Kia Optima will depend on which model you get. The Kia Optima Hybrid has both the best fuel efficiency and will get you the farthest in between fill-ups. It gets 42 mpg, and you can drive 667.8 miles before you have to head back to the pump. However, the other Optima models don’t look too shabby either. For example, the Kia Optima LX 1.6T gets 31 combined mpg and will take you 573.5 miles in between fill-ups, and the LX boasts 29 mpg and 536.5 miles between fill-ups. Even if you were to choose the 2018 Optimas that rank lowest in terms of gas range, which are the Optima S and EX, you would still enjoy 518 miles between trips to the gas station. Not only will that save you a lot of time, but it will also save you a significant amount of money.
