2017 Kia Optima vs 2017 Toyota Camry near Dothan, AL

Those who believe that all midsize sedans are from the same cookie-cutter mold have yet to experience the Kia Optima. With its invigorating performance and long list of features, the Optima is one for the ages. Here at Kia of Tallahassee, we are so confident in the Optima that we have pitted it against one of its top competitors. Check out this 2017 Kia Optima vs 2017 Toyota Camry near Dothan, AL, comparison to see all of the ways the Optima prevails.

We start things off with a look at what awaits beneath the hood. The 2017 Kia Optima and the 2017 Toyota Camry are powered by similar engines, but the one within the Optima simply goes above and beyond. Its 2.4L 4-cylinder engine produces 185 horsepower and 178 lb.-ft. of torque. In the Camry, you’ll feel a less invigorating drive from its 2.5L 4-cylinder engine with only 178 horsepower and 170 lb.-ft. of torque. Even with more power, the Optima still manages to be extremely efficient with a fuel rating of 25/36 MPG city/hwy1. In the Camry, you may need to stop at the pump more often, as it only has a fuel rating of 24/33 MPG city/hwy2.

Our side-by-side look at the 2017 Kia Optima vs the 2017 Toyota Camry near Dothan, AL, continues with all of the features you’ll enjoy once you take the wheel. For starters, the Optima boasts standard turn signal indicators on its side mirrors, so surrounding drivers will know your next move. No such feature is found on the Camry. And, when loading groceries in from Publix, only the Optima provides you with the convenience of an available Smart Trunk. Just stand behind it with your Smart Key in your purse or pocket, and it’ll open automatically.

Once you have a seat inside the 2017 Optima, you are sure to love that you can let in some Vitamin D into your cabin when you open the available panoramic sunroof, which is another feature not found within the 2017 Camry. In terms of comfort, the Optima is ready for even the warmest of summer days with available ventilated front seats. No such luxury is bestowed upon you in the Camry. Even better, these seats can be wrapped in supple Nappa leather that cradle you on every drive. While the Camry does offer leather seats, the Optima takes it one step further in regards to supreme comfort.

Both the Kia Optima and the Toyota Camry boast exciting technology to make each drive more fun. But, only the Optima provides you with the latest in smartphone integration—Apple CarPlay™3 and Android Auto™4. Just connect your phone and your favorite apps are brilliantly displayed for easy and safe use. Plus, you can access even more state-of-the-art features on the available 8-inch touchscreen within the Optima. The largest display found in the Camry is only seven inches.

It’s important to make the right selection for you and your needs, and we at Kia of Tallahassee hope our 2017 Kia Optima vs 2017 Toyota Camry near Dothan, AL, comparison helped you make an informed decision. To see even more ways the Optima is an exceptional choice for a new midsize sedan, visit us today to take one for a test drive. You’ll find us at 2755 W. Tennessee Street in Tallahassee, FL.

Small location with small offerings. The Service Department is fantastic! You are immediately greeted. They keep you informed and they provide fast warranty and recall service. VERY user friendly and affordable. I've lived in Las Vegas and Orlando prior to moving here. All KIA Service Departments have been great. I have to admit this location was superior to the others.

I arrived at 5pm to just see if I would be able to get something new. I left in the late hours of the night with a new 2017 Kia Soul. I am absolutely pleased with everything. The staff worked with me to get me in payments I could afford and in a new car that is awesome. I recommend Kia Tallahassee to anyone.

The staff was very friendly. I was just not told up front everythin that I needed to take with me in order to close the deal. It took us a while to sign the paper work but other than that I have no complaints. This is the 2nd vehicle we have purchased from Kia of Tallahassee.

I wish I could say my customer service was the same as some of the posts on here! What started out as a day long ordeal with sales to getting left hanging once I made the purchase on a used vehicle. I called the manager after a month long ordeal with a surgery and he to this day has not returned my call for 2 service problems I have with my car! I will find another Kia who is hopefully more helpful

I've had a great experience here at Kia today. The salesperson who I worked with was Eugene Butler. He was very honest and helpful and made buying a car a little less painful.
