2019 Kia Optima vs. 2019 Honda Accord

When comparing Kia Optima vs. Honda Accord, it’s easy to see why these sedans are popular choices in the Kettering area. While both models provide great features and performance, a closer look reveals that the 2019 Kia Optima offers additional features, interior space, and options you’ll want on the road. At Kia of Beavercreek we’ve collected the specs of both options so you can decide for yourself which model is best for you.

Optima vs. Accord: Interior Features and Dimensions

In this Kia vs. Honda comparison, both vehicles are equipped with features such as adaptive cruise control, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ capabilities, and dual-zone automatic climate control. However, when looking at interior comforts and capacity, the Kia Optima interior comes out ahead by offering a more spacious cabin, especially up front. Here’s a breakdown:

  • 2019 Kia Optima
    • Passenger Volume: 120.7 cubic feet
    • Front Head Room: 39.8 inches
    • Front Leg Room: 45.5 inches
    • Front Hip Room: 56.0 inches
    • Rear Hip Room: 56.0 inches
  • 2019 Honda Accord
    • Passenger Volume: 105.6 cubic feet
    • Front Head Room: 39.5 inches
    • Front Leg Room: 42.3 inches
    • Front Hip Room: 55.3 inches
    • Rear Hip Room: 55.0 inches

There is also a slew of safety features available in both the Optima and Accord, including collision assistance technology, blind spot monitoring, lane keep assist, and more. If you’re looking for even more interior features and tech, the 2019 Kia Optima delivers with optional features across various trim levels like a digital compass, 10 speaker Harman/Kardon® QuantumLogic™ Premium Surround Sound, Smart Cruise Control, steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, and a Surround View Monitor.

Under the Hood: 2019 Kia Optima vs. 2019 Honda Accord

Whether you choose the Optima or the Accord, you can expect great performance under the hood to help you navigate the Fairborn streets. However, the best value when it comes to horsepower is the Kia Optima EX trim level. The Optima EX puts out 201 hp at 6,000 rpm, compared to the base Accord working with 192 hp at 5,500 rpm. To overtake that power in the Accord, you’ll need to spend nearly $4,000 more than you would for the Optima EX.

Another highlight of the Optima is that it doesn’t sacrifice efficiency for performance. With the Optima EX, you’ll still get 27 mpg / 37 mpg (city/highway) compared to the 22 mpg / 32 mpg (city/highway) on the Accord Sport 2.0T. If you’re looking for power and efficiency, look towards the Optima and you’ll still save money in the end.

Pricing and Warranty Coverage

The base price for both vehicles comes out to:

  • 2019 Kia Optima starting at $22,900
  • 2019 Honda Accord starting at $23,720

Taking into consideration Kia vs. Honda reliability and how equally they’re matched, the less expensive price of the Optima is just another advantage. That, coupled with the standard Kia warranty of 60 months or 60,000 miles for bumper-to-bumper and 120 months or 100,000 miles for the powertrain, the authenticity of the Optima shines through as not only an impressive vehicle but an exceptional value.
