Check out how the Mazda6 compares against the Optima.
Right from the start, the Mazda6 has a lower MSRP ($22,010) when compared to the Kia Optima’s ($22,450). Adding features and options or moving up in trim level will mean higher payments each month, as well as increased insurance costs if you choose the Optima. Value means spending less and getting more, something the Mazda6 does in true style.
The 2015 Mazda6 features a sprightly 2.5-liter inline-four, with 184-horsepower and 185 ft-lbs of torque, while the 2015 Kia Optima has a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that offers up 192-horsepower with 181 ft-lbs of torque. These numbers may sound like the Optima has the advantage, but more horsepower also means less mpg. The Optima only earns 24 city and 34 highway mpg, compared to the Mazda6's 25 city and 37 highway mpg. The Optima brings a monthly fuel cost of $163; compared to the Mazda6's $151 you'll save about $12 per month, which is $144 every year!
The 2015 Mazda6 seats five passengers in two front bucket seats and a rear bench that seats three, which the Optima offers in kind. However, the Mazda has a little more space for everyone. The Mazda6 offers front passengers 56.1 inches of hip room, compared to 54.7 inches for hips in the Optima. In the rear seats, hip room for Mazda6 passengers is 56.1 inches, which beats out the 54.5 inches in the Optima's rear seats.
