The engines are identical, and both cars will give you plenty of "umph". On the infotainment front, the Optima comes standard with a voice recognition system, a feature that is not available on the Accord. Additionally, the Optima comes with satellite radio to go along with the traditional AM-FM radio dials. The Accord does not include such satellite radio.
