The 2019 Kia Optima is more than just a competent mid-size sedan. It’s one of the most compelling models in the timeless and sophisticated segment. Offering standard features like active safety, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto infotainment and plenty of headroom and legroom for both front and rear passengers, the Kia Optima is a step ahead of its competitive class.
With an uncommon focus on style and refinement, the Kia Optima has few entries that compete with it in terms off its aesthetics. The Ford Fusion may be one of the closest competitors in this segment. Today, we’re matching up these two midsize sedans in our quest to find out which model offers the most composed styling and robust set of features in the enduring segment. Check it out!

As you can see in the chart above, the 2019 Ford Fusion is a fine sedan, but can’t come close to offering the value that the 2019 Kia Optima does. This value is evident in the model’s base engine, which delivers more power, and focus on driver and passenger comfort and convenience.
Though both models cut a striking silhouette and exemplify the timeless grace and elegance of the midsize sedan, the 2019 Kia Optima’s coupe-like styling elevates it to another level altogether. When you look at the 2019 Kia Optima, it looks and feels like a car twice its price.
Step inside and this trend continues. The 2019 Kia Optima greets drivers with a standard 7-inch full touchscreen infotainment controller with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility on board. This means your favorite apps can be used through your minimally-distracting interface of your 2019 Kia Optima.
Speaking of safety, the 2019 Kia Optima features standard Kia DRIVEWiSE active safety features. This suite of features uses advanced technology to mitigate hazards on the road.
