With so many midsize sedans in the market to choose from, it’s hard to narrow down your top choices. Here at Kia of Tallahassee, we have done the work for you by creating a comparison between the 2017 Kia Optima vs 2017 Nissan Altima near Lake City, FL. The Optima makes it difficult for its competitors to match the high standards it sets. Visit your local Kia dealer today to see just what the Optima can do!

Performance-wise, the Kia Optima’s 2.4L 4-cylinder engine gets your adrenaline pumping by achieving 185 horsepower and 178 lb.-ft. of torque. Although the Nissan Altima’s 2.5L 4-cylinder powertrain tries to match the Optima’s high ratings, it’s only capable of producing a less-thrilling 179 horsepower and 177 lb.-ft. of torque. You may think that the Altima’s 3.5L V6 engine can most definitely top the Optima’s 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharger powerhouse, but it falls short with its 251 lb.-ft. of torque when compared to the Optima’s 260 lb.-ft. of torque. Also, the Kia Optima can hold up to 18.5 gallons of gas between fill-ups, while the Altima only has an 18-gallon fuel capacity.

As we move forward in our comparison of the 2017 Kia Optima vs 2017 Nissan Altima near Lake City, FL, you’ll see that the Optima continues to take the lead. In the base model of the Altima, you certainly won’t find a touchscreen that organizes all of your media for you. On the other hand, the Kia Optima does one better by providing a standard 5-inch touchscreen with audio controls. In addition, the 2017 Optima makes jamming out while on your daily commute a memorable experience by offering a 10-speaker Harman/Kardon® QuantumLogic™ Premium Surround System1. The most the Nissan Altima offers is a Bose®2 Audio System that only includes nine speakers. Additionally, the 2017 Optima puts your safety first by giving you access to a standard Rear-Camera Display3, which isn’t even available in the base model of the Altima.

You won’t be limited to space in the Kia Optima, as it boasts 15.9 cu. ft. of trunk volume4. If you drive the Nissan Altima, you may have to leave some of your everyday essentials behind, as it only provides 15.4 cu. ft. of stow-away space5. Up front, you’ll stay comfortable at the wheel, thanks to the Kia Optima’s 45.5 inches of front legroom, which tops the Nissan Altima’s more confined 45 inches of front legroom.

Both of these midsize sedans put up a worthy fight, but when it comes down to it, the Optima takes the winning title in this match-up of the 2017 Kia Optima vs 2017 Nissan Altima near Lake City, FL. Here at Kia of Tallahassee, our new-vehicle showroom is open seven days a week, so feel free to stop by any time! We look forward to your visit!

Overall, I received wonderful service from the Service Department. They fixed a pesky and persistent issue I was having with my Kia. Teena, Billy, and the rest of the staff that I corresponded with were professional, personable, and showed genuine concern for my vehicle. Kia of Tallahassee has been very easy to work with regarding warranty-related items. They have ensured a repeat customer and value my feedback as a customer. Thank you for the great work that you do!

I have a Hyundai but I come here since I am not too fond of my dealership, although they are now under new management. Particularly Kia Service Center, they go above and beyond to service my oil change needs. I have been going to them for the past 3 years at first with maintenance warranty. I'm so satisfied that I will even purchase my new set of tires from them soon. Although they tend to get busy too, you would never get the rushed feeling from them. Their employees look happy to be there, which makes it even a good environment to wait around. I hope your management team gives everyone there a raise. You guys deserve it. Thanks for being a good dealership. I just wish you were selling Hyundai too.
