2020 Kia Optima vs 2019 Ford Fusion in Cookeville, TN

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.

My husband and I had no intentions of buying a car when we walked into the Kia Dealership on Saturday. We were there to get the oil changed in our 2012 Kia soul. As we always do we went to the show room floor to look at the new Kia’s. We were approached by Scotty Litton the floor manager,He was so friendly and knowledgeable about the new Kia’s. It wasn’t very long before we were considering trading in our old Kia for a new Kia soul. Scotty made it so easy and was so nice and so patient with us. We ended up buying a 2020 Kia soul Exline and we couldn’t be happier. I need to mention this is our third Kia from Cumberland Kia in Cookeville. We have never had a bad experience at Cumberland Kia in Cookeville. They have always treated us right given us excellent service and we will always come back. A big thank you to Scotty Litton and the entire staff at Cumberland Kia for excellence in service and sales.

Entire staff was courteous, friendly and knowledgeable. The experience was so very pleasant. Our salesman David Gist was great to work with. You won't go wrong with him. He works hard to give you the best deal possible. The finance man was not pushy, didn't try to upsell and was very nice. I traveled 189 miles and got a deal well worth the drive!!

Awesome service department! We were running late for our service appointment (we live over an hour away) and when I called to tell them we were still 15-20 minutes away, the service department was very gracious and told me they would honor my appointment at whatever time I got there. Once we finally arrived, they took my vehicle immediately and were done in about 35 minutes. Can’t say enough nice things about the staff and service!

I went in to see a Kia Cadenza. The one they had was not a color I liked, but I liked the car. They found a white one which I really liked. They came up with a good price and I went home with a contract for the car. It was available within a few days. When I arrived to pick it up , The car was well prepped and had a full tank of gas!

Cumberland Kia did the best they could do to replace the defective cv transmission on our new 2020 Kia Soul. The one month delay was a Kia upper management decision to replace entire transmission and disect the defective one to find the cause of the malfunction. Cumberland Kia installed the transmission as soon as it arrived. New transmission works perfectly. Loaner car was also provided.
