How would you like to drive a new mid-size sedan that is not only fuel-efficient and powerful, but also supremely safe and well-appointed? The 2016 Honda Accord is Honda's latest version of its ever-popular mid-size sedan, which is now packed with more features and value than ever before. Vatland Honda proudly serves residents near Ft. Pierce, Port St. Lucie, Sebastian, and Palm Bay & Fellsmere as one of the area's go-to Honda dealerships.

Standard Fuel Economy

When it comes to fuel efficiency, the 2016 Honda Accord is way ahead of the 2016 Kia Optima. The new Accord's standard 2.4-liter inline four engine sips fuel with the best of them in the mid-size sedan class, returning up to an EPA-estimated 27 city and 37 highway mpg rating -- or 31 mpg combined. In fact, those fuel economy numbers put the Honda Accord mid-size sedan in the company of some smaller, compact cars! The 2016 Optima is also equipped with 2.4-liter engine as standard, but that is where the similarities between these two rivals' powertrains end. You see, the Kia's 2.4-liter four-cylinder only manages an EPA-estimated 24 city and 35 highway mpg, with a combined rating of 28 mpg. In other words, the 2016 Accord bests the Kia Optima by a whole three mpg in combined city/highway driving! To get behind the wheel of one of the most fuel-efficient new mid-size sedans around, then get into the new Honda Accord.

Available Horsepower and Torque

If you want a new mid-size sedan that offers some real power under the hood, then be sure to test drive a V6-equipped 2016 Honda Accord. The available 3.5-liter V6 i-VTEC develops a whopping 278 hp and 252 lb.-ft. of torque; power is routed to the front wheels through a silky smooth automatic transmission with sport-shifting. Even with all that power, the Accord V6 returns up to an EPA-estimated 34 mpg on the highway! Clearly you do not have to choose between performance and efficiency when you choose a Honda. Kia does not offer a V6 in its Optima sedan, but you can have your Optima equipped with a 2.0-liter turbo inline four engine. If you drive the more powerful versions of these two mid-size sedans back-to-back though, you will likely come away disappointed with the Kia Optima turbo models. The turbocharged Optima models give up more than 30 hp to the more powerful Accord, while returning an estimated highway fuel economy rating of 2 mpg less than the Honda.

Available Interior Features

If you want to drive a new mid-size sedan that is decked out with the very latest technologies, then be sure to explore the 2016 Honda Accord EX, EX-L, and Touring models. The Accord Touring represents the range-topping model of the Accord lineup, with most offered features on the Accord coming as standard on the Touring. Of course, you can select an EX, EX-L or other Accord model and choose options and upgrades that fit your family's needs and budget. Some of the most popular available features on the 2016 Honda Accord include:

  • Honda Sensing™ Features Suite
  • Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ with Voice Recognition
  • LED Headlights with Autoâ€`On/Off
  • 19-Inch Alloy Wheels
  • Heated Outboard Rear Seats
  • Body-Colored Parking Sensors
  • Rain-Sensing Variable Intermittent Windshield Wipers
  • Auto High-Beam Headlights

Rear Passenger Space and Comfort

If you plan on driving your family or friends around in your new mid-size sedan, then be sure to find one with spacious seating for all five passengers, like the Accord. The latest Accord provides nearly three inches of additional legroom for second-row passengers when compared to the Kia Optima. Three inches of legroom can make all the difference for adults riding in the backseat, especially on longer drives or road trips!

Safety Features

Mid-size sedan shoppers will be happy to learn that the 2016 Honda Accord is offered with a long list of innovative safety features, including active safety, passive safety, and high-tech driver-assistance features. The Accord's available Honda Sensing™ system, Honda's suite of safety and driver assistive technologies, is one of the most comprehensive driver-alert systems offered in the mid-size sedan class today. Kia's 2016 Optima is also available with advanced driver assist technologies, but these features are often reserved for the higher-end Optima models. Many of Honda's cutting-edge safety technologies, including Honda Sensing™, are offered as options on Accord models of all price ranges, making the Accord a great choice for drivers or families who want an affordable sedan with the latest safety features. Additional safety features that are available on 2016 Accord models include:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow (ACC)
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Dynamic Guidelines
  • Lane departure warning system
  • Lane keeping assist system
  • Lane sway warning system
  • Pedestrian detection
  • Radar- or camera-based collision preparation system
  • Automatic braking, high-speed or partial
  • Forward collision warning

Safety Ratings

If you want an extremely safe sedan as your family's next vehicle, then the 2016 Accord is your best bet! The NHTSA has awarded the 2016 Accord with the highest, 5-Star Overall Crash Test Rating, including five stars in all tests conducted! The 2016 Optima is also a very safe vehicle, achieving some 5-Star individual ratings, but it did falter a bit in the NHTSA's Front Passenger Crash Test. When only a sedan with the highest safety rating will do for your family, get into the 2016 Honda Accord!
