Honda Accord was outpointed in selling by the new Kia Optima, according to the Consumer Reports.
The Optima is ranked the sixth among the top 10 of all four-cylinder sedans tested by the organization. That means is behind Suzuki Kizashi, but ahead of Honda Accord with just one point in CR’s testing. Both Honda and Kia achieved “Very Good” scores.
The first positions were taken by Nissan Altima, Hyundai Sonata and Toyota Camry.
Kia was appreciated the most for its transmission, controls, fuel economy, handling and crash test results. But not for road noise, low rear-seat height, and limited rear visibility.
