Some competitors, like the Nissan Maxima, make several compromises so that they can focus on one area to excel in, in the Maxima's case that is the engine, but it falls short in most other areas. Read on to find out more about how these cars compare.

  • Richardson shoppers looking to save a buck while still getting an awesome car will find that the Kia Optima starts at a price that's more than $10,000 less than the Nissan Maxima. In fact, every trim level of the Kia Optima, even the highest one that comes standard with ventilated leather seats and more, starts at a lower price than the Nissan Maxima.
  • You'll also spend more time and money at the pump with the Nissan Maxima, which falls way short of the Kia Optima's fuel economy specs.
  • The reason for the poor efficiency and high starting price of the Nissan Maxima comes from its standard V6 engine, which, while more powerful than the standard engine of the Kia Optima, has very similar specs as the 2.0-liter turbo engine of the Optima. Plus, the Optima is lighter, so you feel the power more easily.
  • Driving feel isn't all about power, and the Kia Optima knows this, which is why it's available with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission that is ridiculously smooth. The continuously variable transmission of the Nissan Maxima doesn't accelerate as fast or provide the same sporty feel for Plano drivers.
  • If you're looking for comfort on your ride, then the Kia Optima is again the right choice. In terms of passenger room, it has a 6 cubic feet advantage over the Nissan Maxima, so front and rear passengers will have more leg, head, and shoulder room, and the Optima even has a larger trunk space for Allen drivers.
