2016 Kia Optima

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!

Overall, I received wonderful service from the Service Department. They fixed a pesky and persistent issue I was having with my Kia. Teena, Billy, and the rest of the staff that I corresponded with were professional, personable, and showed genuine concern for my vehicle. Kia of Tallahassee has been very easy to work with regarding warranty-related items. They have ensured a repeat customer and value my feedback as a customer. Thank you for the great work that you do!

I have a Hyundai but I come here since I am not too fond of my dealership, although they are now under new management. Particularly Kia Service Center, they go above and beyond to service my oil change needs. I have been going to them for the past 3 years at first with maintenance warranty. I'm so satisfied that I will even purchase my new set of tires from them soon. Although they tend to get busy too, you would never get the rushed feeling from them. Their employees look happy to be there, which makes it even a good environment to wait around. I hope your management team gives everyone there a raise. You guys deserve it. Thanks for being a good dealership. I just wish you were selling Hyundai too.
