Palmen Kia puts the new Optima up against the competition Kenosha Kia dealer proud to stock stylish and capable model

KENOSHA, Wis., May 24, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- There was a time when putting the Kia Optima up against the Honda Accord might have meant trouble for the Kia entry. But thanks to Kia's company-wide transformation, those days are no more. Now, the competition of 2013 Kia Optima vs 2013 Honda Accord is a tight one. The professionals at Palmen Kia are proud to put their vehicle up against any of the competitors in the industry.


While the vehicles are almost identical on fuel mileage in the efficient four-cylinder class, the Optima seems to outperform the Accord in several other key areas. The horsepower (200) and torque (186 lb-ft) on the Optima clearly beat out the Accord in the same categories (185 horsepower, 181 lb-ft of torque). In cargo capacity, the two vehicles again come in at nearly identical figures.

Although deciding on a style winner is really in the eye of the beholder, the new Kia Optima gets a lot of points in this category. The Optima was one of the first vehicles to get a redesign under Kia's much publicized design-led transformation that led to more stylish and performance-minded vehicles.

The staff at Palmen Kia welcomes consumers to come to the dealership and size up the Optima in person. In addition to Kenosha, Palmen Kia is also a well-respected Kia dealer in Libertyville, IL and other areas of southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois.
