Consumer Reports: Kia Sedan Tops Honda Accord

Consumer Reports ranks the Kia Optima midsize sedan ahead of big seller Honda Accord.

By Jerry Edgerton | CBS MoneyWatch – Wed, May 11, 2011 5:25 PM EDT

 

2011 Kia Optima

Until recently, Kia was known chiefly as the automaker with the funny commercials featuring hip-hop hamsters.


But now, with its sales surging (up 56% in April), Kia has taken another step toward serious consideration by shoppers: Consumer Reports, after a comparison test, ranks the Kia Optima midsize sedan ahead of big seller Honda Accord.

Consumer Reports test drivers gave the Optima the edge over the Accord for its superior handling, although the magazine kept Accord on its Recommended list. They cited these additional attributes for the 2011 Optima (list price $21,885 in the test model), which has had a complete redesign:

  • The 200-horsepower four-cylinder engine, which delivers strong performance
  • Good fuel economy, with an EPA ratings of 24 mpg in city driving, 35 mpg highway
  • Smooth shifting by the six-speed automatic transmission
  • An attractive interior and plenty of trunk space
  • Crash test performance – the Optima garnered a Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

But it was the quick steering and crisp handling that gave Optima the edge over the Accord, long among the top-selling midsize sedans. CR test drivers said the Accord handling was “sloppy with notable body lean” when it was pushed on the magazine’s test track.

Optima ranks sixth overall among four-cylinder family sedans. The top five are Nissan AltimaHyundai Sonata,Toyota CamrySubaru Legacy and Suzuki Kizashi. The Accord came in at No. 7. The review is in the June issue or available on the CR website if you are a subscriber.

Both Kia and its Korean corporate stablemate, Hyundai,  already sell well,  but the two have benefited further  from tight supplies of Japanese cars and parts after the recent earthquake and tsunami.

In addition to the Optima, sales have been strong for Kia vehicles like the midsize Sorento SUV and the small, boxy Soul (promoted by the hip-hop hamsters). At the recent New York Auto Show, Kia introduced the 2012 subcompact Rio, which is rated for 40 mpg in highway driving.

Rally Group Acquires Kia dealership

RALLY AUTO GROUP 866.906.9484

Rally Auto Group announced Monday it has acquired Antelope Valley Kia from Ricky Clutter. The purchase price of the dealership was not disclosed.

“It was for sale and we are always looking for ways to expand,” said Larry Mayle, president of the Rally Auto Group in Palmdale. “We are going to try to substantially grow it.”

The dealership will benefit from Kia‘s new designs, and its reputation for fuel efficiency, Mayle said.

The dealership is being re-established on a six-acre site at 438 Auto Vista Drive, a location twice as a big as its previous home. The move was part of a location re-alignment by the Rally Auto Group that included putting all its General Motors brands together. The group also owns a Hyundai dealership, which already has its own building.

“This will enhance the sales of all the manufactures,” Mayle said.

The new dealership can hold between 400 and 500 cars on its lot. The showroom accommodates six vehicles at a time.

The number of workers at the new dealership was not immediately available. Rally has a total of roughly 130 workers.

The work force will be increasing, but Mayle could not say immediately by how many.

Rally is already starting to put its on stamp on the dealership with new signage and upcoming advertising highlighting the Rally Kia name.

Kia announced Monday that its North American sales set a new company record in 2010 with 356,268 cars sold, an increase of 18.7% over 2009.

The company attributed its sales growth to the introduction of four new vehicles – Sorento, Sportage, Optima and the five-door Forte. The company said the new designs have “attracted new and more affluent customers to its showrooms.”

Globally, Kia sold more that 2 million vehicles in 2010, an increase of 26.5% over 2009, the company reported.
