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!

Small location with small offerings. The Service Department is fantastic! You are immediately greeted. They keep you informed and they provide fast warranty and recall service. VERY user friendly and affordable. I've lived in Las Vegas and Orlando prior to moving here. All KIA Service Departments have been great. I have to admit this location was superior to the others.

I arrived at 5pm to just see if I would be able to get something new. I left in the late hours of the night with a new 2017 Kia Soul. I am absolutely pleased with everything. The staff worked with me to get me in payments I could afford and in a new car that is awesome. I recommend Kia Tallahassee to anyone.

The staff was very friendly. I was just not told up front everythin that I needed to take with me in order to close the deal. It took us a while to sign the paper work but other than that I have no complaints. This is the 2nd vehicle we have purchased from Kia of Tallahassee.

I wish I could say my customer service was the same as some of the posts on here! What started out as a day long ordeal with sales to getting left hanging once I made the purchase on a used vehicle. I called the manager after a month long ordeal with a surgery and he to this day has not returned my call for 2 service problems I have with my car! I will find another Kia who is hopefully more helpful
