2020 Kia Optima vs 2019 Ford Fusion in Cookevlle, TN


2020 Kia Optima shown above with optional equipment. 

With the influx of midsize sedan on the market, narrowing your options down to the one that will fulfill your daily driving needs might seem like a tall order. We at Cumberland Kia are here to point you in the right direction when you look toward the 2020 Kia Optima as your next trusted vehicle. Don’t believe us? Continue reading to see how this iteration holds up when compared to the 2019 Ford Fusion. We know you will be impressed!

Performance

If you are most interested in the brink of excitement, then the 2020 Optima will calm your speed demons with one tap on the accelerator. That is because it comes equipped with a standard 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that effortlessly climbs to 185 horsepower and 178 lb.-ft. of torque. When you choose the 2019 Fusion, you might make it to your dinner plans at Cook Out a little late, because the standard 2.5L Duratec 4-cylinder engine doesn’t offer quite as much in terms of pep. That is proven when you grip the steering wheel, as it can only muster up 175 horsepower and 175 lb.-ft. of torque. If you are looking for efficiency, then the 2020 Optima will let you stay on your intended path for the long haul, because with the aforementioned system equipped, you will have a 25/35 MPG city/hwy1. Unfortunately, the Ford Fusion’s base model only offers 21/31 MPG city/hwy2.

Interior

We understand that taking advantage of a comfort-driven cabin is important when deciding which midsize SUV fulfills your every interest. When you hop into the Kia Optima, you will have a standard 8-way adjustable driver’s seat with 2-way power lumbar support to mitigate any lower back pain after a long day at the office. On the other hand, the Ford Fusion misses the mark by only providing you with a standard 6-way manual driver’s seat. The Optima also boasts standard cloth seat trim with CleanTexTM that will make wiping up spills an absolute breeze. When you opt for the Fusion, you will have to settle for standard cloth chairs that don’t offer a stain-resistant function. Lastly, the Optima boasts available ambient lighting to set the tone on your night out on the town, another feature that the Fusion doesn’t incorporate

Dimensions

You deserve a vehicle that lets you spread out to your heart’s content, and the Optima is prepared to fulfill your every need. Up front, you and your co-pilot will have 39.8 inches of headroom to limit any strain on your lower back. You will also be able to let your lower extremities stretch with 45.5 inches of front leg space. When you opt for the Fusion, you might feel a bit cramped, because you will only have 39.2 inches and 44.3 inches of front headroom and legroom, respectively. You will also have an incredible 58.1 inches of front shoulder room in the Optima to give you plenty of your own personal space. In the vehicle from Ford, you will have to squeeze into 57.8 inches of shoulder room in the front row.

In this comparison between the 2020 Kia Optima vs 2019 Ford Fusion in Cookeville, TN, the Optima takes home the crown. You can see it today at Cumberland Kia during our accommodating hours.

Christy Herd and Andy Claborn were so good to us! Gave us a great trade in offer and a discount for my husband being a first responder! We had an issue where we didn’t want to lose our vehicle but needed the trade in for a trip (we needed the hitch). They allowed us to purchase our vehicle but keep our trade in until we returned from our trip in a week! We ended up deciding to not use the trade in on our trip but the fact they were letting us was amazing! We were in and out in less than 2 hours and we love our new (used) 2017 GMC Acadia!

Usually my experience is awesome but today was not to the excellent standard I am accustomed too. Arrived at 8:40 for an oil change and tire rotation. Asked the customer service gentleman if they could complete my car by 10:20. No problem I was told. At 10:10 I asked if he could check on it. He did. I got my car at 10.18 with much pushing. There didn’t appear to be any urgency by the first gentleman so I talked to Lucas. He rushed to assist me.

Cumberland Kia is a great place to buy a car! I drove an hour to buy my car here because they had the best price, and they beat my own financing which I didn’t think was possible. I definitely recommend them. Another thing worth mentioning is they don’t charge extra if you don’t use their financing like other dealers sometimes do.

Braxton helped me get my DREAM car and I couldn’t be more thankful. He was able to work his magic and get me what I wanted and still in a price range I could afford. The process felt easy and no pressure at all to buy. But he was open and honest and in the end I drove away with the car I walked in wanting. He was the best and would definitely go back and repurchase from this specific dealer. It was just him but the entire staff was friendly and welcoming. I honestly felt like I had more than more salesmen. THANKS AGAIN BRAXTON!
