The popular Camry has faced some stiff competition as of late. Let's see how the latest 2016 Toyota Camry compares to the 2016 Kia Optima mid-size sedan.
When shopping for a new car, everyone wants to choose a reliable one, and J.D. Power and Associates is one of the best judges of reliability. The auto industry experts over at J.D. Power have rated the 2016 Camry with above-average reliability, which perhaps explains why the Camry has been one of the top-selling cars in America for decades. In comparison, J.D. Power has rated the Kia Optima with below-average reliability. In addition to its superb reliability, the Toyota Camry comes with a solid warranty, featuring bumper-to-bumper coverage for three years or 36,000 miles, along with powertrain coverage for five years or 60,000 miles.
Both the 2016 Toyota Camry and the 2016 Kia Optima mid-size sedans offer multiple powertrain options to suit the needs, driving styles, and budgets or drivers and families. The 2016 Toyota Camry comes standard with a 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder engine that produces 178 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque -- which is not too shabby for a car that also provides impressive fuel economy ratings. The Kia Optima's standard engine is a smaller, 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that makes comparable power to the Toyota, but is less fuel-efficient. Drivers who select the Camry's upgraded engine will get Toyota's 3.5-liter V6 under the hood, which develops a highly capable 268 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque. No matter which engine you choose in the 2016 Camry, the motor comes paired with a smooth 6-speed transmission for efficient and effortless acceleration. The Kia Optima can be had with a choice of two other optional turbocharged 4-cylinder engines, a 1.6-liter or 2.0-liter. While the 2.0-liter turbo offers increased power, it is still less powerful and refined when compared to the Toyota Camry's 3.5-liter V6. In fact, the range-topping engine for the 2016 Kia Optima gives up 23 hp to the more powerful Camry V6 -- which is quite significant when you consider that the Camry also weighs less than the Optima! For thrilling power mixed with commendable fuel efficiency, choose the 2016 Camry over the Optima.
In the spacious 2016 Toyota Camry, you can fill your sedan with five passengers and easily keep them comfortable -- even the rear passengers. The 2016 Camry provides 38.9 inches of leg room in the rear seats, while the 2016 Kia Optima offers just 35.6 inches for rear passengers' legs. The headroom in the rear seats is also better in the 2016 Camry; passengers in the back get 38.1 inches of headroom compared to only 37.8 inches in the Kia Optima. If you want all of your passengers to enjoy the ride in your new mid-size sedan, better go with the Toyota!
Standard features are a great barometer for the value of a car, and the 2016 Toyota Camry offers an impressive list of standard equipment on all of its available trim levels. The 2016 Camry comes packed with cabin amenities that drivers and passengers are sure to love, like a standard rearview camera in every trim -- something that the Optima base model lacks. On the luxurious 2016 Camry XLE trim, you get exceptional value with standard amenities such as Toyota's advanced Entune Audio system with a Connected Navigation App and dual-zone automatic climate control. The included Entune multimedia bundle includes a 7" high-resolution touchscreen display, six speakers, auxiliary and USB integration, Bluetooth wireless technology, and advanced voice recognition technology. Make the wise choice and select the feature-rich 2016 Toyota Camry as your next daily driver.
