The 2017 Kia Optima features smoother lines, a more elegant swoop of the roof, and a more visually-appealing color palette to choose from than the 2017 VW Passat features. The 2017 Optima has 10 total exterior color choices and 9 interior fabric and color schemes among its five trim options, including the appealing Sangria and Horizon Blue exterior colors. The 2017 Passat has an expansive but more muted palette to pick from, with a stoic beige exterior color that perfectly suits the sedan's stoic demeanor, for example.
Not only does the 2017 Kia Optima have an edge in fuel economy, design and starting price, it also has a roomier interior, with 104.8 cubic feet to stretch out in, superior to the 2017 Passat's 102 cubic feet.
