The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Kia Optima adds generous dashes of style and sophistication to what's otherwise a sensible, frugal, and spacious mid-size sedan. The 2013 Honda Accord is one of America's best, most sensible sedans, even if it hasn't changed radically.
