2016 Kia Optima vs 2016 Toyota Camry near Panama City, FL

There can only be one winner of the 2016 Kia Optima vs 2016 Toyota Camry near Panama City, FL, competition, and that is the 2016 Optima. This midsize sedan is a powerhouse with massive capabilities, a sizeable interior, and amenities integrated in the cabin that absolutely triumph over the features that come standard in the 2016 Camry. Get behind the wheel of the Optima when you visit Kia of Tallahassee as soon as today!

Coming out strong with an 18.5-gallon fuel capacity, the Optima bests the Camry’s 17 gallons of tank volume easily. Even though the Camry hosts a 2.5L I-4 engine while the Optima carries a 2.4L I-4 powerhouse under the hood, the Optima still produces more strength when it comes to distance. You won’t know true exhilaration until you’ve driven the Optima and experienced its 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft. of torque. The Camry merely reaches 178 horsepower and reels in only 170 lb.-ft. of torque, not enough to overcome the Optima’s solid abilities.

Interior space is not to be overlooked in a sedan, since the winner of the 2016 Kia Optima vs 2016 Toyota Camry near Panama City, FL, comparison has plenty of it. You’ll have access to 15.9 cubic ft. of cargo room1 in the trunk of the Optima, but the Camry lags behind with only 15.4 cubic ft. of space2. When you slide into the driver’s side of the Optima, you’ll enjoy stretching out in its 45.5 inches of legroom. Get behind the wheel of the Camry and you’ll be cramped inside 41.6 inches of space.The Optima is also wider, longer, and taller, which allows for optimal storage flexibility, no matter what you need to haul. Being 73.2 inches wide, 191.1 inches long, and 57.7 inches tall, the Optima could basically encompass the entirety of the Camry, since this sedan is only 71.7 inches wide, 190.9 inches long, and 57.9 inches tall.

Interior features abound in the 2016 Optima, while the 2016 Camry falls short on expectations. With SiriusXM Satellite Radio3 as a standard feature in the Optima, no one can possibly claim that the Camry is the better sedan. This audio system includes over 130 channels that the Camry just can’t exceed because it doesn't offer this feature. The Optima also boasts the YES EssentialsⓇ4 Fabric Treatment that deflects spills and prevents stains on its cloth upholstery. While the Camry also offers cloth seating, it doesn’t offer the protection needed to maintain freshness over time like the Optima does. Your front rider can enjoy even more comfort with his or her 6-way power-adjustable passenger seat. The Camry only gives passengers a 4-way power-adjustable seat.

Regardless of the many reasons you may want to get behind the wheel of the 2016 Optima, there is no doubt that it meets and exceeds expectations, and ultimately gains the lead against the Camry. In the 2016 Kia Optima vs 2016 Toyota Camry near Panama City, FL, comparison, the Optima comes out as the winner. Don’t miss out on the chance to test drive this midsize sedan when you visit us at Kia of Tallahassee today!

Had a great experience here when we needed to purchase a new (used) car for my Mother-In-Law. Good sales folks with less than normal overkill on sales pitches. Was especially impressed with the professionalism of Manager Colleen Harp. Thanks!

My salesman, Christopher Finch, made my car purchasing experience painless. He worked hard to give me the best deal on a vehicle despite my credit challenges. I was treated more like a person and less like a sale. I would recommend this place for anyone looking for a quality car for reasonable price who values customer service.

I recently bought a used truck from Kia. I found the add on their website, submitted a request for info, and to test drive the truck. As soon as they opened the next morning Jessica contacted me and set up an appointment. Angel took me for a test drive. A short time later I was finished filling out paperwork and on my way home in a New/Used Truck! Entire staff is polite, professional, and fast. Thanks Kia!

I was able to drive out of there in a 2014 Kia Soul. The service i got was really spectacular and they actually made me feel good talking to them during my visit. I have to give a special shout out to the salesman who helped me, his name was Chris and he was on point from helping me get the best deal possible to even giving advice that he didn't have to give. Whenever I get another vehicle I will most definitely be going back to these guys.
