    LOL. I would get the Optima if I had to get a KIA. That is all.

    They aren't the same company, but "sister" companies. More like Ford/Mazda than Ford/Lincoln. They share platforms, engines etc so long as it continues to be mutually beneficial.

    i beg to differ... :coffee:

    "In 1998, after a shake-up in the Korean auto industry caused by overambitious expansion and the Asian financial crisis, Hyundai acquired rival Kia Motors"

    "If you think the biggest automakers are afraid of fast-rising Hyundai, consider what company is catching Hyundai's attention -- its own smaller sibling, Kia.
    Both are owned by giant Hyundai of South Korea."
