2018 Honda Accord vs 2018 Kia Optima

2018 Honda Accord vs 2018 Kia Optima

Having trouble deciding on a new sedan? Don’t worry, we’re here to help. We compared two popular sedans, the 2018 Honda Accord and the 2018 Kia Optima. Of course, looking at both of them, they are quite attractive cars. However, there are a number of differences in the available conveniences and features that they offer occupants.

In fact, looking at the chart below, there are distinct differences in the available passenger and cargo space, with the 2018 Accord offering more than the 2018 Optima. There are also different comfort features available between them. For instance, the Accord has more standard climate control features than the Optima, including vent locations, air conditioning settings and window control. Though both sedans stay similar with available entertainment features on the lower trim levels, the Accord starts to offer more advanced standard features on most trim levels whereas the Optima waits until high trim levels.
