2014 Chrysler 200 vs. 2013 Kia Optima Hybrid Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chrysler 200 than the Kia Optima Hybrid. The Kia Optima Hybrid will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chrysler 200.

Convenience
The Kia Optima Hybrid requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Chrysler 200, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Chrysler 200 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Kia Optima Hybrid. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Chrysler 200 is much higher than that for the Kia Optima Hybrid.

Dimensions
The Chrysler 200 is about the same width as the Kia Optima Hybrid. When looking at overall length, the Chrysler 200 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Kia Optima Hybrid.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Chrysler 200 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Kia Optima Hybrid.

Handling
The Chrysler 200 has a larger turning radius than the Kia Optima Hybrid, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chrysler 200 has a much more powerful engine than the Kia Optima Hybrid. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chrysler 200 and the Kia Optima Hybrid. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Chrysler 200 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Kia Optima Hybrid.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chrysler 200 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Optima Hybrid.
