2017 Honda Accord vs 2017 Kia Optima near Augusta, GA

Vehicle shown above is the 2017 Honda Accord with optional equipment. 

As you go through this 2017 Honda Accord vs 2017 Kia Optima near Augusta, GA, comparison, you’ll notice the superiority of the Accord right out of the gates. With better powertrain options and a copious number of interior amenities, the Accord excels above all others in the midsize sedan segment. Get behind the wheel of one today by visiting Gerald Jones Honda!

Let’s begin our competition by checking out what each vehicle has to offer on the inside. When you have rear passengers, they’ll enjoy the 38.5 inches of available rear legroom to stretch out in. On the other hand, passengers in the backseat of the Kia Optima may feel slightly crushed with only 35.6 inches of rear legroom. As the driver, you’ll have 58.6 inches of front shoulder room to maneuver around in. The cabin of the Kia may feel a little cramped with only 58.1 inches of front shoulder room. When you upgrade to a higher Accord model, you’ll receive a standard moonroof to enjoy the beauty of nature from. This feature does not come standard on any of the trim levels in the Kia Optima, which results in having to pay a little more if you want it.

As our 2017 Honda Accord vs 2017 Kia Optima near Augusta, GA, comparison continues, we will take a look at what technology each has to offer. At the base trim of the Accord, a standard 7.7-inch central display awaits, while only a 5-inch display rests in the center console of the Kia Optima. Enjoy the standard automatic climate control in Honda Accord. Unfortunately, this feature is not even offered in the Optima. Connect your smartphone to either Apple Carplay™1 or Android Auto™2 to play all of your favorite music. This option only comes as part of a package in the Optima, which means taking more money out of your pocket.

This competition would not be complete without seeing what lies beneath the hoods of these two midsize sedans. When you opt for the Honda Accord Sport, you’ll get a standard 2.4L 4-cylinder powertrain with i-VTEC® technology, which generates 189 horsepower. Not only does your engine size decrease, but so does your maximum speed when you upgrade to a higher trim level of the Kia Optima. It’s standard 1.6L engine only produces 178 horsepower. The Honda Accord also offers an available V6 engine on its higher trim levels and standard paddle shifters on the Sport trim level for an athletic feel. You won’t find paddle shifters on any of the Optima models and its powertrain options only offer as high as a 4-cylinder.

Once you get behind the wheel of the Honda Accord, it’ll be clear to you why it outdoes the Kia Optima in this 2017 Honda Accord vs 2017 Kia Optima near Augusta, GA, competition. Visit us at Gerald Jones Honda to test drive this midesize sedan today!

Great experience. Was running late so rep worked around and got me in within short period. Diagnosis was found quickly, part was ordered, and I was able to get out in timely fashion. Part was ordered, was available and is on its way from Atlanta. Rich Wallace.

Wonderful service for repairs! Quick, easy to set appointment, fast delivery with appointment, friendly staff right in the door, honest. I like that they only care about safety with the vehicles and not trying to roll anyone over for expensive repairs. They offered a lady in the waiting room next to me a car for the weekend since her vehicle needed extensive work. Great job all that work there.

William Walker did an awesome job showing me different CRV’s and answering all of my questions. He rode with me several times to test drive and to demonstrate features of the car. He was professional, courteous, knowledgeable and patient. Although we didn’t close a deal this time, I will definitely ask for him next time! It was a very good experience.

Thank you Mr. Elam and the Honda service team.

With this being my first time getting an oil change I was met with welcomed and experience knowledge with Mr Elam. He instructed me on what to do this time and also next time about where to park for service. He made my visit there very pleasant and informational. I got out in a timely manner and was not late for work. Thank you Mr. Elam and the Honda service team.

The staff was wonderful and very understanding of my situation. They asked what I needed or preferred and found the vehicle I desired with the payments under what I thought they would be. They did not push me or try to oversale like other dealerships I have been to. Next time I am in the market for another car, Gerald Jones Honda will be my first stop.

They were not pushy!

We went to the lot at what we thought was " after hours" because we did not want to be "bothered with salespeople" as we looked initially. We still encountered salespeople but to our surprise when we said we would like to just look on our own and later when we got serious at buying, they were not pushy! This was very important to us. They were all very helpful, knowledgeable and when they found that they did not have the exact car I wanted on the lot, they went in search of one for me. The deal was awesome. I highly recommend Gerald Jones Honda.

They helped me with my flat tire after hours!

Bought a Honda Civic Sports Touring from Kendall. Really awesome guy that cut us a great deal and even stayed a bit after closing to show us every feature of our newly bought car. Every staff member there was respectable and personable, unlike another unnamed car dealership a few miles down Washington Rd. Will definitely purchase another car here again.

In and out fast with good service.

My first Honda came from Gerald Jones Honda in 1985. I moved away not long after that, purchased several cars over the last 33 years, returned “home” last year and just bought my 5th Honda at Gerald Jones Honda! I can honestly say this was one of the best car buying experiences I have had over the years. Cam Griffin brought several cars to me at work to allow me to try different trim levels on my own. He made me laugh throughout the process and made it an awesome purchasing experience. I’m glad to have renewed my relationship with the great people at Gerald Jones Honda and look forward to many years of Honda care with them.

Was very apprehensive about buying a car in general due to prior bad experience. What a different experience this time. Will go back to Gerald Jones Honda again. Everyone was very helpful and friendly every step of the way.

Our car buying experience with Gerald Jones Honda and particularly Allen Baer was great today. We’ve purchased many cars with Allen and would strongly recommend him to anyone! He’s very patient and thorough - as an example - he took notice of the temp setting in my old car and made sure to set it to the same temp in the new car before gettin g in it to drive off the lot. Allen took time to connect on a personal level - asking about family members and work, making it feel like we were doing business with a friend. The sales manager Monty was also instrumental in making this experience a good one. We hope to continue to do business with Gerald Jones
