Kia K5 vs. Honda Accord: Price and Warranty Coverage

  • 2021 Kia K5: Priced at $23,490 MSRP*
  • 2020 Honda Accord: Priced at $24,270 MSRP*

That lower starting price is backed by superior peace of mind since the Kia K5 offers significantly stronger coverage than the Accord:

  • Kia Bumper-To-Bumper Warranty: 60 months or 60,000 miles.
  • Honda Bumper-To-Bumper Warranty: 36 months or 36,000 miles.

Whether you’re worried about breakdowns around Marion or keeping ahead of recommended maintenance, this new twist on the Kia Optima keeps you covered longer and further.

  • 1st Row Headroom: 40.2 inches
  • 1st Row Legroom: 46.1 inches

  • 1st Row Legroom: 42.3 inches
  • 2nd Row Headroom: 37.3 inches
  • 2nd Row Hip Room: 55.0 inches

The difference might seem negligible, but you’ll feel it once you’re stuck in Anderson traffic.

  • Forward Collision Warning
