2018 Kia Optima vs 2018 Toyota Camry

Serving Orlando, Wintergarden, and Ocoee, FL

The classic midsize sedan appeals to a wide swath of buyers, from empty nesters who want a smooth, comfortable ride with plenty of features to small families who don't need the space and expense of an SUV or minivan. In this category, two industry and buyer favorites are the Kia Optima and the Toyota Camry. Here's how these 2018 sedans stack up.

Technology

Although both the Optima and Camry come well-equipped with the latest tech, the Kia sedan offers standard smartphone integration on every model with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, new features as of 2018. Neither system is offered on the Toyota Camry. Both sedans are equipped with a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system across the lineup.

Interior Space

The 2018 Kia Optima has one of the largest trunks in the midsize car class, with almost 16 cubic feet of space. The 2018 Toyota Camry offers just 15.1 cubic feet of space, fewer than in the 2017 model and one of the smallest trunks in the class. If you need room for groceries and gear, the Optima is the better pick.

In addition, the Optima offers plenty of headroom and legroom for even the tallest rear seat passengers, while the Camry might be a bit of a tight squeeze for adults relegated to the second row.

The Kia Optima is also one of the safest cars in the class, earning Top Safety Pick designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and a five-star overall crash test rating from the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration. And with a wealth of standard safety features in every trim, including rear parking sensors, rear cross-traffic alert, and blind spot monitoring, the 2018 Optima is also a great value.
