Jackson, Michigan, area motorists can turn to the new Nissan Altima as a highly efficient and versatile sedan. The 2020 Nissan Altima compares favorably to the stiff competition in the mid-size sedan class, including when compared with the 2020 Kia Optima.
While the new Nissan Altima and Kia Optima boast similar seating space and overall dimensions, there are plenty of features and characteristics that set these two sedans apart. Here, we'll review some of the key differences between Nissan's popular mid-size car and the Kia Optima.

When you're shopping for a sedan that leads not follows, the 2020 Nissan Altima is here for you. This cutting-edge sedan boasts fuel-efficient and potent powertrains, available all-wheel drive (AWD) and a suite of driver-assistive technologies and safety features that its competition can't match.
The new Nissan Altima and Kia Optima boast similar starting MSRPs, but what you get for that price is quite different. With the 2020 Altima, you get more horsepower, more torque and far greater EPA-estimated fuel economy than the 2020 Optima.
Both of these models come standard with front-wheel drive, 8" touchscreen displays and smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but then the differences start to show. The Altima comes standard with the full suite of Nissan Safety Shield® 360 driver-assist features, including:
Kia doesn't provide as extensive of a safety suite as standard equipment on its 2020 Optima. You'd have to upgrade to a pricier version of the Kia sedan to get similar features that the Nissan Altima gets as standard. Plus, Kia doesn't offer anything on the Optima that rivals Nissan's ProPILOT Assist, a technology package that offers semi-autonomous driving capabilities!
Whether you're after a highly fuel-efficient sedan, one that offers the confidence of AWD or delivers exceptional power and fuel economy, the new Nissan Altima is your answer. Its standard 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder engine generates more horsepower and torque than the Kia Optima's standard engine, along with significantly greater city and highway mpg ratings from the EPA.
Nissan's 2.5-liter engine in the new Altima can also be paired with the automaker's Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, a feature that does not have a rival within the Kia Optima lineup!
Michigan motorists who step up to a new Altima featuring the revolutionary VC-Turbo engine can enjoy a powertrain that is like two engines in one. This advanced powertrain can adjust on-the-fly to deliver more power or optimize efficiency. So no matter what style of driving you're doing on any given day, the Altima's available VC-Turbo is there for you with its responsive and efficient performance.
With up to 248 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque and an available sport-tuned suspension, the new Altima is the dynamic and high-performing car you're after, so test drive one today!
Only one of these sedans is offered with an Intelligent Around View® Monitor and 19-inch alloy wheels, so you'll want to get down to your local Nissan dealer to experience this new car for yourself.
