So, let’s talk power. Hybrids are often dismissed by driving enthusiasts as being less fun to drive because they lack a certain degree of horsepower and torque in order to keep efficiency at peak levels. You can see here that when it comes to the Kia Optima Hybrid vs Honda Accord Hybrid, horsepower, and especially torque, are considerably better for the Optima, and with little expense in terms of miles per gallon. Sure, the Accord had a bit of a lead there, but considering the difference in power we think it’s probably a good trade-off.
