2015 Kia Optima Hybrid vs. 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid
Hybrid vehicles are known for their supreme fuel economy and eco-friendly ways, as they reduce harmful emissions and help preserve the planet. Two nice examples of the hybrid vehicle class are the 2015 Kia Optima Hybrid and the 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid. We'll look at gas mileage, power output and features to see which of these environmentally-friendly midsize sedans will provide the most value for you.
First off, the 2015 Kia Optima Hybrid gets style points for its sport styling and sharp, clean lines on its exterior. Its Honda counterpart has more of a geometric shape, with a triangular swoop to the front fascia and a more squared-off rear bumper area. Immediately, you notice the 2015 Optima Hybrid has a design that stands out from the herd; it also has more power than the 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid, with 199 combined HP between its gas engine and its battery-powered engine, edging the Accord Hybrid's 196 combined HP.
This advantage extends to the 2015 Optima Hybrid's torque as well, as it has 235 net lb.-ft. of torque, more than a typical midsize sedan will get you, and more than the 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid's 226 lb.-ft. of torque. That means you'll have an easier time navigating the city streets or changing lanes on the highway with the Optima Hybrid, which also gets a nice 36 mpg city, 40 mpg highway.

A midsize sedan is still a midsize, even if it's a hybrid, and the 2015 Kia Optima Hybrid still has the room you need for up to five passengers with 102.2 cubic feet in all models; the 2015 Accord Hybrid, on the other hand, skimps on space with 100.8 cubic feet in top-line models and 39.1 inches of headroom and 42.5 inches of legroom in the front seats for all models. The 2015 Optima Hybrid gives you more space to stretch out with 40 inches of headroom and 45.5 inches of legroom in front. And while you're getting comfy, check out the Optima Hybrid's eight-speaker Infinity Premium Audio System in top-line models, topping the Accord Hybrid's seven speakers.
Then there's the handling – the 2015 Kia Optima Hybrid will fit into those tight spots in packed parking lots or when you're on your way to a show with a 35.8-foot curb-to-curb turning circle, easily topping the Accord Hybrid's relatively plodding figure of 38.1 feet.
