Compare the Design of the 2018 Ford Fusion to the 2018 KIA Optima

The design teams behind the new 2018 Ford Fusion and the 2018 KIA Optima have done well with these midsize sedans. However, when we looked beyond the appearance, we found some important differences. The new Ford Fusion does hold a slight price advantage, and you get more for your money than with the midsize car from KIA. For instance, standard features like daytime running lights, LED taillights, and push-button start are standard on the Ford Fusion, but they'll cost extra as upgrades on the already more-expensive KIA Optima. In fact, even floor mats will cost more in the KIA Optima where they're standard on every new Ford Fusion. These are just a few examples of how the new 2018 Ford Fusion is designed to provide more for your money, and we can hardly wait to show you more at Lakewood Ford.

Compare the Performance of the 2018 Ford Fusion to the 2018 KIA Optima

At the start of the lineup, the performance of the new Ford Fusion and KIA Optima appear to evenly matched. However, it's when you step behind the wheel of these midsize sedans that you find a clear distinction in how they each perform. Generous sound deadening material and precision-tuned suspension provides a ride that's fun to drive while also being quiet and comfortable in the new Ford Fusion. If you're looking for a new midsize sedan, then the Ford Oval is certainly the way to go since you can get a new Fusion equipped with a turbocharged V6 engine that gives you a breathtaking 325 horsepower. That's far more than anything you'll find in the KIA Optima. What's more, you can get a new Ford Fusion equipped with all-wheel drive traction, but that's not an option for the KIA Optima.

Nothing is more important than the safety of your next new car, and you'll find that the new 2018 Ford Fusion and the 2018 KIA Optima are among the safer vehicles available. Both models come with the latest in traction control, brake, and airbag technology. You can also get either model equipped with driver assist technology like blind-spot detection, pre-collision braking, and lane-departure warning. When we looked closer, we found that the new Ford Fusion does hold some important safety advantages including the Personal Safety System™, SOS Post-Crash Alert, and the ability to essentially park itself. This is a level of safety that stands above the more expensive KIA Optima, and there is a lot more to show you.
