2016 Kia Optima Vs 2016 Toyota Camry

 

The 2016 Kia Optima is a sleek blend of performance, technology, and attitude. See how it compares to the 2016 Toyota Camry!

 

Exterior

The 2016 Kia Optima comes standard with many great features such as auto-off headlights, tinted glass, and rear camera display. The 2016 Toyota Camry also comes standard with all of these features, however alloy wheels are not standard on the Camry, but it is on the Optima. This is an added feature that you must pay extra for on the Camry.

 

Interior

The 2016 Kia Optima also comes standard with plenty of great interior features like remote keyless entry, auxiliary jack, and an interior air filter system. These same features are also found standard in the 2016 Toyota Camry, but you’ll notice a lot of features that are missing in the Camry that you can find in the Optima. These include satellite radio, auto-dimming rearview mirror, automatic memory seats, and automatic memory mirror settings.

 

Performance

Let’s talk performance. The 2016 Kia Optima has an available 185 horsepower at 6,000 RPMs. The 2016 Ford Fusion has only 178 horsepower at the same RPM level. The Optima also has more torque, coming in at 178 at 4,000 RPMs, versus the Camry’s 1705 at 4,100 RPMs. Lastly, let’s not forget to mention fuel efficiency. Toyota is famous for its fuel efficiency. If fact it’s why many people choose that brand. However, Kia is neck-and-neck with Toyota at a combined 28 mpg. The Optima also has a larger fuel tank than the Camry: 18.5 gallons verses 17. This allows you to fuel up less often. This may not seem like much, but it is convenience that you will appreciate!
