The Big Differences

Comparing the 2018 Kia Optima and 2018 Honda Accord means you’re in the market for an attractive and dependable sedan, and you’ll get just that with either of these models. While they’re both four-cylinder powerhouses that provide comfortable seating for up to five passengers and offer similar cargo space capacities, there are some differences drivers will want to know when trying to decide which is the right model:

  • Warranties:
    • Kia: Comes with 60-month/60,000-mile basic warranty or 120-month/100,000-mile powertrain warranty
    • Honda: Comes with a 36-month/36,000-mile basic warranty and 60-month/60,000-mile powertrain warranty
  • Exterior Features:
    • Kia: Comes with power-heated exterior mirrors as a standard option
    • Honda: Power-heated exterior mirrors are not available
  • Performance
    • Kia: 2.4L I4 engine with 185 hp and 178 lb-ft of torque
    • Honda: 1.5L turbo engine with 192 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque

Which Car is Right for You?

Both the Optima and Accord bring versatility to the Lowell roadways, but these vehicles were meant for different types of drivers.

If you’re looking for the model that has options for a more luxurious interior, the Honda is your overall choice. This model has high-quality trims, leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated and ventilated seats, center console storage, and multiple accessories available to make your cabin more of a place to relax after a hard day on the job.

If you prefer more excitement in your Methuen drive, then opting for the Kia Optima is the way to go. Not only does it offer a traditional V6 engine with up to 245 hp, it also has longer warranty coverage for peace of mind.
