The 2013 Honda Accord vs. the 2013 Kia Optima

2013 Honda Accord LXFor generations, the Honda Accord has been one of the choices for Middletown and Mechanicstown drivers looking for an affordable and reliable four-door vehicle. Its comfortable interior, list of features, and smart-looking design just add to its list of benefits. You can test drive the 2013 Honda Accord right now at Middletown Honda.

We realize you’re also probably looking at some of our competitors. The 2013 Kia Optima, another four-door option in the Accord’s class, misses some of the essential options that 2013 Accord Drivers are enjoying. Here’s a look at how the two vehicles match up.

Vehicle Features

Though the 2013 Accord LX and the 2013 Optima LX, both base models, are similarly priced, the Accord has several key comfort amenities that Optima drivers are missing. These include:

  • Dual zone, automatic climate control
  • Cruise control
  • Rearview camera
  • Floor mats
  • Electronic brake force distribution
  • Stereo anti-theft

Even on higher, similarly priced trim levels, the Accord still has the edge. Standard features on the Accord EX like a power moonroof and cargo area tie-downs may make it the better choice for some drivers.

Transmission Options

Though many average drivers prefer an automatic transmission, there are some strong manual transmission fans out there. Unfortunately, unlike the Accord, the Kia Optima does not have a manual option. A six-speed manual transmission is available on all of the Accord’s trim levels.
