Kia Optima or the Honda Accord – which is the right car for you? Deciding the right car can be tough and you need to consider the car’s specification and price plus your own preferences when choosing the car. The Honda Accord has many features you might gladly go for, and these features include more widely known brand, engine, and appearance. However, the Kia Optima too has plenty of aces up its metallic sleeve, and you get many pleasant surprises when you take the car for a test drive.

Larger Front Seats

If driver comfort is topmost on your mind and you like to have plenty of space to stretch your legs, the Kia Optima does better than the Honda Accord. Both cars can accommodate five people, so it can be difficult to decide which the better car to ferry your family is. One of the things that can help you decide is the safety aspect.


The Kia Optima has a better safety rating, and this can be very good for you in many ways. The Kia Optima ranks well on crash tests and a higher overall rating than the Honda Accord. Since the cars are aimed at families, this type of high safety record puts the user mind at ease.

Another indicator that the Kia Optima may be better for your family is that it can store more cargo. The difference between Kia Optima and Honda Accord cargo capacity is not much. But when you are trying to squeeze in one extra bag or case then this can be very significant.

Better Price and Fuel Efficiency

The Kia Optima does well in the price aspect. It costs slightly less than the Honda Accord. For price conscious buyers, this can be a significant factor in deciding which car to buy. The Kia Optima also offers better range. That is, you can travel more on a single tank, and this can be due to the more capacious gasoline tank that the Kia carries.

When it comes to interiors, nothing can beat the Kia Optima design. The interiors come with two color options, so if you prefer neutral shades, you can choose sandy colored interiors or go for all-time favorite black. The interiors also offer remote ignition, power rotating seats and for drivers, a memory seat that reduces back pain. These features are not standard in the Honda Accord, so the Kia Optima emerges the winner in terms of price, comfort, and features.

At the Route 23 Kia dealership, you can discover more reasons to buy the Kia Optima when you take the car for a test drive.
