If you’re shopping for a stylish sedan with plenty of exciting features, you may be considering the 2020 Kia Optima or 2020 Honda Accord. Both are great options, however, if you want more features for the price, a roomy interior, and a long-lasting bumper-to-bumper warranty, the new Kia Optima is worth a closer look. Compare the Kia Optima vs. Honda Accord below to see how these two sedans stack up.

Kia vs. Honda: Warranty Coverage

Which vehicle is more in your preferred price range? They’re nearly evenly matched in that regard, but the Kia Optima is slightly more affordable:

  • 2020 Kia Optima: $23,190* starting MSRP*
  • 2020 Honda Accord: $23,870 starting MSRP

When you consider Kia vs. Honda reliability, it’s an added advantage for Kia Optima buyers that it’s less expensive than the Honda Accord. Additionally, there’s the added peace of mind that comes with the standard bumper-to-bumper Kia warranty of 60 months or 60,000 miles. The Honda Accord, on the other hand, comes with a 36-month/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty.

Optima vs. Accord: Interior Dimensions

When it comes to space for Kansas City drivers and passengers, the Kia Optima pulls ahead. Although the Honda Accord offers more cargo room, the Optima makes the most of its interior. Here’s a breakdown of their measurements:

2020 Kia Optima Interior Dimensions:

  • Front Head Room: 39.8 inches
  • Front Leg Room: 45.5 inches
  • Front Hip Room: 56.0 inches
  • Rear Head Room: 37.8 inches
  • Rear Hip Room: 56.0 inches

2020 Honda Accord Interior Dimensions:

  • Front Head Room: 39.5 inches
  • Front Leg Room: 42.3 inches
  • Front Hip Room: 55.3 inches
  • Rear Head Room: 37.3 inches
  • Rear Hip Room: 55.0 inches

Optima vs. Accord: Safety & Technology Features

When you review the Kia vs. Honda spec sheets, you’ll notice both sedans offer many of the same safety features to Independence drivers. For example, both come standard with features like:

  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Low-Tire-Pressure Warning
  • Lane Departure Warning

Of course, the glaring difference is that Raytown car buyers will pay less for the Kia Optima. Not to mention, the base-level Optima LX includes standard features you can’t get on the base-level Honda Accord LX without a trim upgrade, including Blind Spot Monitoring, Apple CarPlay®, and Android Auto™.
