Offered in five trim levels, the 2020 Kia Optima has a model to suit a variety of driving needs. On the base trim, you’ll enjoy a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 185 horsepower. If you crave more power, the SX trim comes standard with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that puts out up to 245 horsepower. Safety is key with added visibility, thanks to standard blind-spot collision warning and lane-departure warning plus lane-keeping assist. An eight-inch touchscreen display keeps you connected to the outside world with Bluetooth®, Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™ connectivity. Kia Optima Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid models are available.

 

2020 Ford Fusion

The 2020 Ford Fusion also comes with a variety of trim levels with hybrid and plug-in hybrid options. A 2.5-liter i-VCT engine comes standard on the base model, puts out 175 horsepower, paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. Safety comes in the form of the Ford Co-Pilot360™ suite, which includes blind-spot monitoring and other similar features found on the Kia sedan.
