Offering a sleek and modern design alongside a comfort-driven cabin and impressive powertrains, a Kia sedan will make every Sterling commute more enjoyable. While browsing your options, the Kia Optima and Kia Forte stand out among the lineup of eye-catching sedans. However, both offer a unique driving experience. Take a closer look at how these two Kia sedans compare before visiting Dulles Kia today to get behind the wheel of your favorite.

Power & Performance

Whether you're looking to command the Chantilly roads ahead with powerful performance or enhance your fuel efficiency, these options are up for the task. The sporty Kia Optima includes three impressive engine options, making up to 245 horsepower. However, the Kia Forte also provides all the power you need with its 147-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder setup. This powertrain shines for its excellent EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 31 mpg in the city and 41 mpg on the highway.

Interior Comforts

No matter which option you choose to bring home, you can expect to find a spacious interior featuring exciting amenities, including:

  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Harman/Kardon® premium audio system with Clari-Fi™
  • Power sunroof
  • SmartTrunk™
  • Heated and ventilated front seats

However, when you opt for the Kia Optima, you'll find access to additional standard and available features, including ambient lighting, a driver's seat integration memory system, and heated rear outboard seats.


Wherever life takes you, these two Kia sedans help you stay connected along the way. Both models offer easy access to your vehicle settings and controls with a UVO link infotainment system on an 8.0-inch touchscreen display. Plus, you can seamlessly connect your smartphone using Bluetooth connectivity or Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration.


Although you can never predict potential hazards down the road, the 2019 Kia Optima and 2019 Kia Forte offer extra peace of mind with a variety of innovative driver-assistance features.
