2016 Ford Fusion vs 2016 Kia Optima: Design

The 2016 Fusion offers a design that stands out from the crowd, unlike the Optima that blends in with every other sedan. A large front grille and chiseled lines give this sedan a commanding stance will have everyone’s heads turning. While you’ll have to pay extra to get daytime running lights, LED brakelights, and more on the Optima, they come standard on the 2016 Fusion to enhance the overall exterior design. Move inside and you’ll find that, while both come standard with infotainment touch-screens, the 2016 Fusion offers significantly more rear legroom and available ambient lighting, a feature not found on the Optima, to set the mood for every drive. Another technology feature not found on the Kia is Ford MyKey programmable controls. This technology lets you program certain keys with restrictions on things like volume and speed, and it even monitors performance information. MyKey adds peace of mind when lending your Fusion to a friend, child, or even the valet. You don’t get this with the Optima.

2016 Ford Fusion vs 2016 Kia Optima: Performance

The engines of the 2016 Fusion and Optima are quite similar in power and capability throughout the trim levels, though the Ford Fusion does come in an available hybrid plug-in Energi model that offers full-electric capabilities when you want it while the Optima does not. But performance is about more than just power these days, it’s about efficiency and emissions consciousness too. With this in mind, the engineers at Ford equipped the 2016 Fusion with an available automatic engine start/stop system. This greener engine still gives you the power you want, up to 181 horsepower, but utilizes automatic start/stop technology that automatically turns off the engine when you come to a stop during city driving and restarts it as soon as your foot leaves the brake. This drastically reduces emissions, and even improves fuel economy, in a way the Optima simply can’t compete with.

2016 Ford Fusion vs 2016 Kia Optima: Safety

The 2016 Fusion offers a unique, sophisticated design and great performance, but safety is something you don’t want to overlook. No matter what vehicle you choose, it should be able to help you avoid accidents altogether and keep you, and any precious cargo, safer if one does occur. While the 2016 Fusion and Optima both come with standard airbags, tire pressure monitors, rearview cameras, and more, and available accident avoidance features like adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping systems, and more, the Ford Fusion adds extra features not found on the Kia. To protect your passengers better in the event of an accident, the 2016 Fusion offers advanced available inflatable rear safety belts. This is a class-exclusive feature, so it’s not even available on the Optima. What’s more, intelligent all-wheel drive is available on the Ford Fusion to give you better control during low traction situations. By not offering this feature, the Kia has a hard time keeping up with the Fusion when it comes to safety.
