The exteriors of the 2016 Kia Optima and 2016 Hyundai Sonata are streamlined and simple. The streaked back headlights and attractive grille on the Optima gives the vehicle a sporty appearance, but without the exaggerated features that plague many sedans. The Sonata also features a modern-yet-subdued look, with more horizontal lines on the grille. Under the hood, both vehicles feature a standard 2.4-Liter inline-four-cylinder engine that puts down 185 horsepower and offers 178 lb.-ft. of torque. Both sedans achieve over 30 miles per gallon on the highway, and a responsive drive style that is comfortable and confident, even in tougher road conditions.  

Looking to the interior, these vehicles offer distinct design features and many of the same convenience technologies. Both vehicles have a linear and symmetrical interior design that highlights functionality, but looks updated and modern. The interior of the Optima and Sonata each come with a six-speaker audio system, paired with a first-row LCD touchscreen in the control center. Comfortable seating for up to five adults is paired with premium cloth, and additional cargo space in the rear makes it easy to pack up for a long road trip. The Optima's interior has two standard first-row LCD screens, while the Sonata only comes with one. Between the two vehicles, the more aggressive and modern-looking 2016 Kia Optima might be the perfect new sedan for you.
