2016 Kia Optima vs 2016 Hyundai Sonata
When you're shopping for a new car, you want more than just a cookie cutter sedan to get you from point A to point B. You want a sedan that has style, unique features and durability. To help you in your search for the ultimate sedan we're placing two midsize sedans side by side for comparison. Looking at the 2016 Kia Optima vs 2016 Hyundai Sonata you can see the difference between cookie cutter and well thought out design.
Both the 2016 Optima and Sonata are aerodynamic sedans with excellent fuel economy, perfect for people with long commutes to work or who do a lot of driving in general. What makes the Optima stand out from other midsize sedans, including the Sonata, is the attention to detail with which the 2016 Optima was created.
It's All About the Details
Engineers involved in creating the 2016 Kia Optima focused their efforts function and convenience in addition to performance. Knowing commutes involved morning coffee and hitting the drive-thru can mean spills and messes, the interior of the Optima was designed for durability. The interior seating of the Optima is treated with YES Essentials, an anti-static, stain resistant and odor resistant technology that is available with the interior of the Sonata.
Another feature of the Optima that is not available on the Sonata is Kia's Smart Welcome. Standard on four out five Optima trims, this feature detects the Kia Smart Key as you approach and automatically unfolds and lights up the outside mirrors and door handle pockets. This feature is convenient for walking out to the car at night.
