This Sedan is Unbeatable – Comparing the 2020 Honda Accord in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota

October 13th, 2019 by

The unbeatable style of the 2020 Honda Accord in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, is something everyone can admire, and the more features you discover, the more incredible it gets. Today, we compared it to the 2020 Kia Optima, and per usual, Honda did not disappoint.

Right out of the gate, the driver will have a standard heads-up display at their beck and call that will project instrument readouts onto the windshield. With this, the driver will never have to divert their eyes from the road to check things like speed or directions, but the Optima doesn’t offer this feature so that distraction risk still stands with Kia. Key features like the power brake and front power windows are controlled with a single finger, as the brake can be set and released via a button or automatically, and the front windows can sufficiently lower and raise with a single touch. The Optima’s power windows don’t automatically close, and the parking brake has to be released automatically. 

When it starts getting chilly outside, the front and rear passengers in the Accord will be able to stay nice and warm with the heated seats throughout the entire cabin while the driver and front passenger can choose separate climates with dual-zone air conditioning. Optima passengers sitting in the back won’t have the comfort of heated seating, and if you want dual-zone air conditioning, you’ll have to upgrade to the Optima EX or SX. 

Other features inside the cabin include spacious and leather-trimmed seating and a larger trunk area than the Optima (16.7 vs. 15.9 cubic feet). The low lift-over design of the trunk makes loading and unloading any cargo in the Accord easier, while the locking rear seatbacks, sedan body style, and remote trunk release offer extra cargo security. The Optima has a non-lockable remote release, which defeats the purpose of cargo security.

Another factor of comfort is a vehicle’s suspension and handling system, which is more advanced on the Accord than what’s on the Optima. With an available driver-adjustable suspension system, the Accord’s driver can choose between and extra-supple ride to reduce fatigue, and a sport mode for maximum control of the road. If you drive in an area where the streets can get a little tricky to navigate, the Accord can also account for that with its drift-compensation steering to reduce any possible drifting. The suspension system on the Optima doesn’t have adjustable shock absorbers or drift compensation steering, to riding and driving in that sedan could be problematic.
