Kia Optima Interior Dimensions vs. Honda Accord Interior Dimensions

With a trunk that can accommodate up to 16.7 cubic feet of cargo, the 2018 Honda Accord LX CVT has a slight advantage over the Kia Optima–at least at first glance. The Optima LX offers 15.9 cubic feet of trunk space, but since even its baseline trim comes standard with 60/40 Split Rear Fold-Down Seating, it’s easy to access more space when you need it. With 120.7 cubic feet of passenger space, the Kia Optima is capable of seating up to five passengers in perfect comfort, even on longer trips.

Your daily commutes and adventures in the area around Ridgeland will feel somewhat more cramped in the Accord, which offers less head room, less hip room, and less first row legroom. Although the Accord offers more rear legroom than the Optima, its total interior volume comes out to just 105.6 cubic feet. Stow more and ride more comfortably in the 2019 Optima.

Kia Optima Interior Features vs. Honda Accord Interior Features

When it comes to interior features, the 2019 Kia Optima and the 2018 Honda Accord have a lot in common. Both models offer Bluetooth Compatibility, Speed-Sensitive Volume Control, two 12-volt Power Outlets, and a 6-way Adjustable Driver’s Seat. However, the Optima offers a number of subtle advantages that drivers in the Brandon area will have to pay extra to access in the Accord. With the Kia Optima, you’ll also gain access to:

  • Premium Cloth Seating
  • Driver’s Seat Lumbar Support
  • Auxiliary Port
  • Standard Voice Recognition
  • Two Front LCD Screens, compared to one in the Accord
  • Six Speaker audio system, compared to four in the Accord

Even with the lowering starting price of the 2019 Kia Optima trim levels, you’ll find the interior better equipped than the Honda Accord.
