2020 Kia Optima vs 2020 Ford Fusion

 
  
  


Our team at Pat Peck Kia is dedicated to serving drivers around the D’Iberville, Gulfport, and Hattiesburg, MS, areas. One of our most popular vehicles is the 2020 Kia Optima midsize sedan. Sedans have become popular due to their agile handling, superb efficiency, and spacious interiors.

While sedans share similar features, each one is unique in its own way and provides its own individual driving experiences. Here, we’ll compare the 2020 Kia Optima vs. Ford Fusion, so you can decide which vehicle is perfect for you.


2020 Kia Optima Design

Style and Design

Just from looking at each car’s exterior, you’ll begin to immediately notice differences. The Kia Optima has a sporty, aerodynamically sculpted design, which features Kia’s eye-catching signature grille. The Ford Fusion’s exterior shape is more rounded, making it appear like many other midsize sedans on the market. The Ford Fusion also features Ford’s classic front grille design.

Moving on to interior design, the Kia Optima is a bit more spacious. With 104.8 cubic feet of passenger volume, it provides more room than the Ford Fusion’s 102.8 cubic feet of passenger volume. Much like the exterior, the Optima’s driver-oriented seating style is modern and sporty. However, it’s also practical and comfortable, featuring an available 12-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with 4-way power lumbar support. As for the Ford Fusion, its top-tier driver’s seat comes with only 10-way power functionality.

2020 Kia Optima Interior Technology

Technology Features

As you cruise the open roads, you can have state-of-the-art infotainment systems in the 2020 Optima and Fusion. The UVO infotainment system in the Kia sedan, as well as its Ford equivalent, offers intuitive menu selections and crisp visuals. The 8-inch touchscreens are easy to use too!

Both these systems let you link your smartphone via Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™. Use your apps on the go—maps, music, messages, and more! Plus, with Bluetooth® wireless technology, feel free to stream music as you drive!

Keep in mind, though, that only the Kia Optima has a standard 8-inch display with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. Aside from Bluetooth®, the Ford multimedia system only adds these features at higher trim levels.
