The Kia Optima is one of our most popular vehicles for a reason. It combines a high-quality look and feels with fantastic performance and technology options. When you are seeking to buy a new sedan, you are inevitably going to have to decide between several competitors. The Ford Fusion is one of those competitors, and we would like to go over some of the key features of each to help you choose.
To start, the Kia Optima is visually designed to impress. Its lines were calculated as well as its rear sculpted to stand out. The interior of the Optima is spacious and open, and its offers several features such as ventilated seats, a modern infotainment system, and an available panoramic sunroof. The Ford Fusions has an elegant exterior and a few options for different seats. Its has the technological capability to control your audio and phone from your steering wheel.
The Optima is about performance and comes with two engine options. Your choice depending on the trim you select either a 2.4-liter DOHC 16-valve engine that boasts 192 horsepower. The other option is a 2.0-liter Turbocharged 1-4, DOHC 16-valve engine for 274 horsepower. The Kia Optima does not mess around. As a comparison, the Ford Fusion has six engine options, from a 2.5-liter Duratec 16-valve I-4 engine (175 horsepower) to a 2.0-liter To-VCT GTDI I-4 EcobBoost Engine (270 horsepower).
While they are evenly matched, the Kia Optima can outpace the Ford Fusion with its base engine and additional powertrain warranties. We believe that makes the Kia Optima a more rational buy for the majority of shoppers. If you would like to test drive the Optima, visit Mike Shaw Kia today in Corpus Christi, TX.
