2019 Kia Optima vs 2019 Honda Accord

2019 Kia Optima vs 2019 Honda Accord

Some automakers may be whittling down their lineup and getting rid of their midsize sedans, but make no mistake: midsize sedans aren’t going anywhere. They’re a prime choice for drivers who want an efficient, spacious car with all the latest technology and convenience features. No one does it quite like Kia, and the Optima is a testament to all they do well. Seen by many as the “flagship sedan” of the automaker, the Optima compares favorably against other top midsize sedans like the Toyota Camry and the Honda Accord. At first glance, shoppers may be tempted to choose the model that they see more frequently in TV commercials, but you should think twice before settling with that one. Take a look at this comparison between the 2019 Kia Optima vs 2019 Honda Accord to see which is a better choice for you!
