2020 Kia Optima vs. 2020 Honda Accord

Ypsilanti drivers looking for a sleek and stylish sedan loaded with great features may be considering either the 2020 Kia Optima or 2020 Honda Accord. While both options offer a lot to drivers, if you’re looking for better features for the price, a comfortable interior, and a strong warranty, the new Kia Optima could be the perfect car for you! Take a closer look at these vehicles and compare the Kia Optima vs. Honda Accord in our guide below.

Kia vs. Honda: Warranty Coverage

While both the Kia and Honda are reasonably priced, the Optima is slightly more affordable and may be exactly what your budget is looking for:

  • 2020 Kia Optima: $23,190** starting MSRP**
  • 2020 Honda Accord: $23,870 starting MSRP

The Optima offers not only a better sticker price but a better overall value. When you compare the Kia vs. Honda reliability, the Optima comes out on top with a much better warranty offering. Optima drivers can commute from Dexter to Saline with greater peace of mind knowing they’re covered by the standard bumper-to-bumper Kia warranty of 60 months or 60,000 miles. Honda cannot compete, offering just a 36-month/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty.
