2016 Optima vs. 2016 Honda Accord in San Antonio

 

Searching for affordably priced sedans that air on the side of luxury? You’ve come to the right place! Fiesta Honda wants to assist you in making that new car decision. In fact, we’re going to do a comparison of two incredibly popular sedans of today: the 2016 Optima and the 2016 Honda Accord in San Antonio. Some have better safety than others, some have better performance capabilities, and we’re here to uncover exactly which car that is!

If it’s safety that you care most about in a car (most people do) then you’re better off going with the 2016 Accord. Although both have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, rearview cameras and lane departure warning systems, only the 2016 Accord was named a “Top Pick Plus” for 2015. The Institute for Highway Safety administers the safety tests to be named a “Top Pick” or “Top Pick Plus”, and the honor is only granted to 64 vehicles.

Like safety, these sedans in Round Rock are not created equal in fuel efficiency. With 27 MPG in the city and 37 on the highway*, the Accord takes the cake for better fuel mileage. The Optima only receives 25 MPG in the city and 37 on the highway. If you like spending less money and getting more bang for your buck, the Accord is the way to go!

Lastly, let’s talk about technology. Today’s affordable sedans have almost the same technology features as some luxury lines, and it doesn’t stop with either of these two cars! The Accord EX/EX-L/Touring has a standard remote vehicle starting system (so you don’t even have to leave your home to warm up or cool off your car)! Unfortunately, the Optima doesn’t even offer this feature in any model. The Accord also has several standard features that the Optima doesn’t have like speed-sensitive windshield wipers, standard automatic headlight on/off feature and standard dual zone air conditioning!

If we had to choose, we’d definitely be driving the 2016 Honda Accord in San Antonio for several reasons. Safety, MPG and technology are all important, but how about you take a test drive to seal the deal? Stop by Fiesta Honda today to get behind the wheel of this new Accord!
