2018 Ford Fusion vs 2018 KIA Optima Comparison: Design

The exterior designs of the new 2018 Ford Fusion and the 2018 KIA Optima are done well, but there are some subtle differences. While the new Ford Fusion offers a bit of attitude with its bold sculpted hood and aggressive chrome grille, the KIA Optima is a bit more conventional which could make it hard to pick out from a crowd. Beyond the different appearances, there are some more substantial advantages that come with the new Ford Fusion like the slightly more affordable price tag and standard exterior features such as daytime running lights, LED brake lights, and available fog lights at the entry level. You'll have to pay even more for a higher trim level to get these features on a new KIA Optima.

2018 Ford Fusion vs 2018 KIA Optima Comparison: Performance

Your next new midsize sedan should come with efficiency, power, and capability to handle anything the roads around the Pacific Northwest have to offer. With your choice of four engines, three of which are turbocharged, and available all-wheel drive, that's exactly what you'll find in a new 2018 Ford Fusion. The new 2018 KIA Optima is available with three engine options, but 245 horsepower is the best you'll find from these engines. The available 2.7-liter EcoBoost® turbocharged engine in the new Ford Fusion will put you in control of an exciting 325 horsepower. Clearly, the KIA can't compete in terms of power, but it also falls short in capability. You can get a new Ford Fusion equipped with all-wheel drive for outstanding traction on any driving surface, but you won't find a new KIA Optima available with all-wheel drive.

2018 Ford Fusion vs 2018 KIA Optima Comparison: Safety

The roads throughout the Puget Sound area are full of surprises, and that means your next new midsize sedan should be as safe as possible. The new 2018 Ford Fusion and the 2018 KIA Optima are recognized as safe, but there are some important differences. We've already mentioned the available all-wheel drive in the new Ford Fusion which sets a standard for safe driving that the KIA simply can't compete with, but that's just the beginning. Ford engineers continue to advance their reputation for innovation with features like SOS Post-Crash Alert technology, the Ford Personal Safety System™, and SecuriCode™ keyless entry keypad. You won't find anything similar on the more expensive KIA.
