With greater horsepower and torque output than that of the Fusion, as well as a smooth-shifting transmission that can help you achieve much better fuel economy, there’s no denying the 2019 Optima’s significant pull in the automotive market. It offers a panoramic sunroof, Blind Spot Collision Warning and Forward Collision Avoidance Assist all standard, features that you’d have to get added with the Fusion. That’s not all, though – the Optima has many more top-tier innovations that the Fusion can’t match, which we’ve listed below:

  • Surround Sound Audio
  • Lane Change Assist
  • Dynamic Bending Light
  • Park Distance Warning – Reverse
  • Surround View Monitor
  • Many more!
