The 2020 Porsche Taycan vs the 2020 KIA Optima in Lincoln

February 3rd, 2020 by

The 2020 Porsche Taycan is a zippy mid-sized luxury car that delivers in thrilling driving experience in many ways. While this sedan may be a top pick at Porsche Omaha, plenty of our Porsche dealers and customers are curious about how it shapes up against the 2020 Kia Optima.

The 2020 Kia Optima

The 2020 Kia Optima exists in a league above the average mid-sized sedan. While it may not be a luxury vehicle, it often competes and outperforms even the most high-end cars on the market. Base models are powered by a 2.4-liter inline-4 engine that makes 185 horsepower using a front-wheel drivetrain and a simple yet effective 6-speed automatic transmission. However, if you have a desire for more power, you can upgrade to a 2.0-liter turbo-4 that churns out 245 horsepower in total. You will find a decent package of driver assistance features as well, adding automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection and active lane control into every vehicle.

The 2020 Porsche Taycan

The 2020 Porsche Taycan offers a similar package, but with a far more robust powertrain. The base engine of the 2020 Porsche Taycan is electric and eco-friendly, utilizing two electric motors for a combined 616 horsepower. These motors are assisted by a 93.4-kWh lithium-ion battery which gives the Porsche Taycan a maximum range of 240 miles. And if you want even more power you can get it in revamped versions of the Porsche Taycan that have a total output of 720 horsepower, a level of thrust unheard of for a car this size. Like the KiaOptima, you’ll also get active safety features, although they’re a margin more robust in the Porsche Taycan with base models sporting automatic emergency braking, active lane control, and parking sensors.

The 2020 Porsche Taycan is a vehicle with a lot of power and tech at its disposal, and you can check it out in person at Porsche Omaha. We’re proud to be one of Lincoln’s primary retailers of new luxury cars, and we’ll help you find a vehicle that surpasses the competition.
