I've had both in the base model non hybrid version for extended rentals and would recommend that you make your decision with a lot of consideration for interior layout differences. Personally I don't like the lighting in the Sonata at night, lowest setting is very bright IMO. Optima lighting actually dims. Many other minor switch location differences but functionally the same.
Both are nice on the highway. Don't have a lot of city time in either.
The drive and mechanics of the non hybrids seem to be nearly identical to each other so that might be true of the Hybrid as well but can't say for sure.
Compare TCO if it matters. One might have a better resale/insurance rate.
