Green Living : Pre-Shopping The Kia Optima

So I have been on a green kick this week on the blog with my Scotch-Brite Botanical Wipes giveaway and my Top Ten Green Cleaners. I think it’s because I am in the middle of deep cleaning before my inlaws visit this week. These spurts always get me motivated to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Part of this mantra is our determination to keep our second car going as long as possible. It’s more cost effective and we figure that there will be more “green” cars out on the market the longer we wait.

But that doesn’t keep a girl from day dreaming. So when I was asked to check out the new Kia Optima Hybrid, I jumped on the chance to do a little “window shopping.” Before my current mom mobile, I drove a Hyundai Elantra so I personally know the value and quality that Kia offers. The 2011 Optima Hybrid delivers 40 MPG on the highway and has a starting MSRP of $26,5002. Awesome gas mileage and even more awesome price. Plus it comes standard with a 16-inch alloy wheel design, headlamp design, fog lamps, heated outside mirrors, front and rear lower bumpers and side sills and LED tail lamp design. I think those extras make it look pretty darn sporty. There are plenty of cool options to add on too.

Want to know more? You can view a video series about the Optima Hybrid design, technology, value and battery here, check out the Kia Optima Facebook page to interact with the Urban Myth Busters app, and check out and Infographic about how hybrid cars work. Infogrpahics make my nerdy heart swoon. For now, i will have to be satisfied with videos and infographics. And maybe a test drive. You know, just to see.
