2018 Chevrolet Malibu Compare


2018 Kia Optima vs. 2018 Chevrolet Malibu

It quickly becomes obvious when comparing 2018 Kia Optima vs. 2018 Chevrolet Malibu just how far ahead of the curve Kia has raced. From power to technology, read on to learn how it excels.

Midsize Sedan Comparison

  • Standard Power: The Kia Optima’s impressive 2.4L four-cylinder produces up to 185 hp for an engaging ride. It makes the Chevy’s standard 1.5L engine feel decidedly underwhelming with its 160 hp.
  • 7-Inch Touchscreen: Comes standard with the Kia to provide cutting-edge smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. You’ll need to pay for a higher trim to get it in the Chevy sedan.
  • Surround View Monitor: Provides a virtual 360-degree bird’s eye image of the vehicle and surrounding area for easy-as-pie low-speed maneuvering. Available with the Kia but not offered at any price with the Chevrolet sedan.
  • Front Legroom: The Kia Optima’s generous 45.5 inches lets you spread out and relax as you drive between Anoka and Coon Rapids. The Chevy only offers up to 42 inches.
