But it doesn’t just look the part, the new Kia Optima and Optima Hybrid have it where it counts: under the hood. Its speed and handling capabilities are adrenaline inducing. But how does the Kia Optima compare to other midsize sedans? Take a look at our comparisons below to see how it accelerates past other midsize offerings.
Kia Optima vs. Honda Accord
Along with Kia, Honda is well known for its mid-size sedans. But the Kia Optima outperforms the expectations of even the most diehard mid-size fan. Here’s why:
- The Kia Optima features a more robust powertrain warranty, with 60 more months and 40,000 more miles of coverage than the Accord.
- The Optima has a lower MSRP of $22,140, compared to the Accord at $22,205.
- The Optima has better fuel economy, boasting 24/35 mpg city/highway, compared to the Accord at 23/34.
Kia Optima vs. Nissan Altima
The Nissan Altima, once a power player in the mid-size sedan category, has lost ground in recent years, clearing the way for the Optima. Here is how the Optima stacks up:
- The Optima features a wide range of amenities that are not available on a comparably equipped Altima, such as a power driver’s seat with memory settings and memory exterior mirrors.
- The Optima has a lower MSRP of $22,140, compared to the Altima at $22,500.
- The Optima features a 185-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine, compared to the Altima’s 182 horsepower.
