The 2016 Honda Accord has been making statements on the road for decades, and the Kia Optima is still playing catchup. Take a look at how these two rivals compare.
In today's world of ultra-convenient cars, it's nice to be able to get back to basics, and the 2016 Honda Accord allows you to do just that. The basic Accord still comes with a standard six-speed manual transmission, which allows drivers complete control and a level of intimacy with their automobile that you could never get with an automatic. The Kia Optima has already phased out its manual transmission, so if you want to feel totally connected to your next car, choose the 2016 Honda Accord.
Power to Weight
Both the Honda Accord and the Kia Optima feature a two-and-a-half-liter four-cylinder rated for 185 horsepower in their base models. Given that information, you might think that they are evenly matched, but the Accord has the edge. The 2016 Accord weighs 3,170 pounds in its basic form while the Optima weighs 3,219. That extra weight on the Optima lowers its power-to-weight ratio, meaning that less of its power gets translated into the wheels. The Accord's four-cylinder engine also produces more torque, 181 pound-feet to the Optima's 178 pound-feet, meaning that the Accord can transfer power to the wheels more quickly than the Optima. Score another for the 2916 Honda Accord!
Honda makes its award-winning Accord as both a four-door sedan and a two-door coupe, allowing shoppers to make a statement that exemplifies their driving style.

The Kia Optima is only available as a sedan, so if you want more choices, choose the 2016 Honda Accord.
