There are any number of vehicles that you could choose to help you get around Philadelphia, Levittown, and Langhorne, but if you're looking for dependable performance and exciting style, your best choice is a midsize SUV like the Kia Optima or the Nissan Altima. 

The Optima and the Altima are two of the most popular sedans on the market, thanks to their reliability and wide range of great features. Our team here at Fred Beans Kia of Langhorne compared the features of the 2020 Kia Optima vs. Nissan Altima, so you can be sure you're driving the right sedan for you. Feel free to contact us with any further questions or comments.

Optima vs Altima: Interior Comfort and Style

With how much time you spend inside your car, it's important to make sure the sedan you get provides you with a comfortable cabin. Examining the interior features provided by the Kia Optima vs. Nissan Altima should help you decide which of these sedans matches your needs.

As the driver, you can adjust your seat eight different ways with the push of a button in each car. The driver's seat in the 2020 Optima also comes with a 2-way power lumbar support.

During the winter, there are available features in both models that will let you heat up your seat as well as the steering wheel to keep warm while driving. When it's hot and humid out, cool down with the ventilated front seats, which are only available in the 2020 Kia Optima. 

Kia vs Nissan: Safety Features

When you're investing in a new vehicle, you want to be sure you're getting one that provides comprehensive safety. Before deciding if the Kia Optima or the Nissan Altima is right for you, it's a good idea to compare their safety systems. 

The Altima provides Nissan Safety Shield® technologies, which include active features like Intelligent Forward Collision Warning with Automatic Emergency Braking.

Consumers looking for the most full-featured suite of safety technology possible need the Optima and its standard DRIVE WiSE system. Included in this bundle of driver-assistive features are Blind Spot Collision Warning, Lane Change Assist, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assistance with Pedestrian Detection, and Rear Cross Traffic Collision Warning.

Space Inside the Kia Optima vs Nissan Altima

Another aspect to consider when choosing the vehicle you want is seeing how much room each model provides for yourself, your passengers, and anything you need to pack in the trunk.

The Kia Optima has 104.8 cubic feet of passenger volume inside its cabin compared to the 100.8 cubic feet of passenger volume found in the 2020 Altima. With that extra amount of volume, you'll have more headroom and legroom for you and your passengers when driving the 2020 Kia Optima.

The Optima also has slightly more room inside its trunk. Its 15.9 cubic feet of cargo volume will let you store or carry more items than the 15.4 cubic feet of cargo volume supplied in the trunk of the Nissan Altima.
