2016 Kia Optima Vs 2016 Ford Fusion Colorado Springs









2016 Kia Optima VS 2016 Ford Fusion


The 2016 Kia Optima is a sleek blend of performance, technology, and attitude. See how it compares to the 2016 Ford Fusion!



The 2016 Kia Optima comes standard with many great features such as auto-off headlights, tinted glass, and rear camera display. The 2016 Ford Fusion also comes standard with all of these features, however the Fusion does not have the option for power heated exterior mirrors, as the Optima does. This feature comes in handy on those cold Colorado mornings, because it eliminates the need to get out of your car and scrape the ice off your mirrors and prevents ice buildup on snowy days.



The 2016 Kia Optima also comes standard with plenty of great interior features like remote keyless entry, auxiliary jack, and an interior air filter system. These same features are also found standard in the 2016 Ford Fusion, but you’ll notice a lot of features that are missing in the Focus that you can find in the Optima. These include 6 standard cup holders versus the 4 you find in the Fusion, and satellite radio. Available features in the Optima also outweigh those of the Fusion. These include auto-dimming rearview mirror, automatic memory seats, and automatic memory mirror settings. It's these small things that give the Optima a more luxurious feel. 



Let’s talk performance. The 2016 Kia Optima has an available 185 horsepower at 6,000 RPMs. The 2016 Ford Fusion has only 175 horsepower at the same RPM level. The Optima also has slightly more torque, coming in at 178 at 4,000 RPMs, versus the Fusion’s 175 at 4,500 RPMs. Lastly, let’s not forget to mention fuel efficiency. The Optima has a combined fuel economy of 28 mpg, versus the 26 mpg that the Fusion offers. The Optima also has a larger fuel tank than the Fusion: 18.5 gallons verses 16.5. This allows you to fuel up less often.
