2016 Honda Accord vs 2016 Kia Optima

Two leaders in the sedan segment are the 2016 Honda Accord and 2016 Kia Optima. These vehicles are neck-and-neck in terms of performance and price, which makes the decision between the two quite difficult for prospective car buyers.

The 2016 Kia Optima's LX trim falls behind the 2016 Honda Accord LX in some of the most integral performance areas. Offering an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-estimated 35 mpg highway fuel economy, the Optima is fuel conscious, but not enough to surpass the Accord's offerings. With torque at 178@4000, the Optima allows the Accord to shine in terms of power under the hood as well. Second-row legroom inside the Optima is at 35.6 inches, which also shows off the Accord's dedication to passenger comfort throughout the vehicle. With a NHTSA Front Passenger Crash Test of 4*, the Optima also hands off the trophy to the Accord, which instead received a marking of 5*.
