Kia dealership puts the Optima up against Nissan Altima

Palmen Kia of Kenosha, Wis. challenges popular Nissan Altima sedan

Kenosha, Wis., Aug. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Competition is fierce in just about every automobile class, but when it comes to niches within already-popular classes, things can become even closer and more heated. For example, sedans are undeniably a popular type of vehicle, but midsize sedans with a super-stylish look and a reputation for efficiency and great standard features? That's where it starts to get down to a few models that may or may not stack up evenly. Determined to show online researchers that the 2014 Kia Optima can go up against the popular Nissan Altima and come out on top, Palmen Kia of Kenosha Wis. put together a side by side comparison: 2014 Kia Optima vs 2014 Nissan Altima.

In its comparison, the dealership looked at areas in which the two vehicles are similar, and then started to explore ways in which the two diverge. The two are quite comparable in areas like MSRP, horsepower, and fuel economy, with slight advantages going to each vehicle in those categories but  nothing very striking. It was when Palmen  compared the powertrain warranty offered on each vehicle that the Kia started to surge ahead with coverage nearly doubling that of the Nissan alternative. In addition, the Altima was lacking in terms of stereo entertainment and did not offer as much in the base model as the Optima.
