The exterior designs of the Optima and the Accord are similar. Both feature a streamlined body and a slim and streaked back design for the grille and headlights. Under the hood, you'll find a 2.4-liter I-4 engine at the base trim of the Optima and the Accord. Both vehicles produce 185 horsepower and achieve over 30 miles per gallon on the highway.
The differences between the two vehicles becomes more apparent when examining the interior design and features. The Honda Accord has a more modern and uniquely organized center console. With the addition of the first-row LCD screens, the traditional buttons and knobs are minimized and modernized. The more traditional-looking interior of the Optima incorportates modern features like those inside the Accord, but doesn’t sacrifice functionality and ease-of-use to do so.
Both vehicles come with standard Bluetooth compatibility and steering-wheel mounted audio controls. With the first-row LCD screen comes optional smartphone connectivity and available features like a rear view camera and voice-activated navigation. The Optima has a standard six-speaker audio system, while the Accord only offers four standard speakers, making it easier to truly immerse yourself in music and media while driving the Optima.
