2019 Kia Optima vs. 2019 Honda Accord


Both the 2019 Kia Optima and the 2019 Honda Accord are smart choices for your commute around the Los Angeles area, but we know you can only choose one sedan for your next car purchase. That’s why we’re comparing the Kia Optima vs. Honda Accord to help you decide which car to buy next.

Pricing and Warranty Coverage

The base price for both vehicles comes out to:

  • 2019 Kia Optima starting at $22,900
  • 2019 Honda Accord starting at $23,720

Considering Kia vs. Honda reliability and how equally they are matched, it’s an added bonus that the Optima is less expensive than the Accord. That, combined with the standard Kia warranty of 60 months or 60,000 miles for bumper-to-bumper and 120 months or 100,000 miles for the powertrain, the authenticity of the Optima shines through in this truly impressive vehicle.

Optima vs. Accord: Interior Features and Dimensions

When looking at this Kia vs. Honda comparison, you’ll find both sedans offer features like adaptive cruise control, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, and dual-zone automatic climate control. When it comes to interior comfort though, the Kia Optima interior provides more space for passengers, especially in the front:

  • 2019 Kia Optima
    • Passenger Volume: 120.7 cubic feet
    • Front Head Room: 39.8 inches
    • Front Leg Room: 45.5 inches

Both the Optima and Accord also have a suite of safety features like collision assistance technology, blind spot monitoring, lane keep assist, and more. The 2019 Kia Optima also has great optional features for the interior across various trim levels like a digital compass, 10 speaker Harman/Kardon® QuantumLogic™ Premium Surround Sound, Smart Cruise Control, steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, and a Surround View Monitor.

Optima vs. Accord: Performance

The Optima EX trim level provides Orange County-area drivers with more horsepower. The Optima EX delivers 201 hp at 6,000 rpm, while the base Accord delivers just 192 hp at 5,500 rpm.

Unlike the Accord, the Optima doesn’t sacrifice efficiency for performance. With the Optima EX, you’ll still get 27 mpg/city and 37 mpg/highway compared to the 22 mpg/city and 32 mpg/highway on the Accord Sport 2.0T.
