Arrow 2019 Optima EX VS Forte EX 2019 Which one is better?

Recently I have test driven, Kia Forte Ex, which is fully loaded with all the options and features. I liked the drive, however i have found a great deal on Optima EX Tech Package included, and i am trying to decide between Kia Forte, and Optima. Which one should i pick? - I checked youtube, and seems there are not that much of reviews on Optima, however whatever i found, confirms the quality. Now Forte is a little bit cheaper. Which one would you pick for daily drive?

Details on what equipment with each car, and of course price and finance deals if you're financing. Details.

I like the Optima for the space, and ride. My daughter has a 17 and loves it.. I have 21 Forte's 16 Lx, and 13 Loaded Sx.. 16 has a smother ride, but the handling on the 13 is much better. You have to put into consideration, your height. I'm 5'10 and my 16 has more room over all then the 13. Plus compare the MPG as well.. Either way you should be happy with what ever one you do choose to purchase.
