2019 Kia Optima vs. 2019 Toyota Camry

The 2019 Kia Optima and the 2019 Toyota Camry are both well-regarded, dependable sedans for Jackson and Brandon drivers. But if you’re on the hunt for superior features and warranty coverage, you really only have one option–the Kia Optima. Comparing the Kia Optima vs. Toyota Camry in-depth, it’s not at all difficult to see that the Kia is simply a better value!

Optima vs. Camry: Price

  • 2019 Kia Optima Price: $22,990 MSRP

On top of its more affordable price tag, the Optima offers numerous clear advantages in this mid-size sedan comparison.

Comfort, Convenience, and Entertainment: Optima vs. Camry

  • In this Kia vs. Toyota sedan comparison, both models offer similar basic features like an integrated backup camera and keyless entry. However, when we take a closer look at each model’s baseline trim, it’s clear that the Optima interior brings a lot more to the table.
  • Drivers who choose the Kia will enjoy a standard rear parking aid, a standard blind spot monitor, standard heated mirrors, and a standard power-adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support. All of these technologies cost extra in the Camry, and many require a trim upgrade.
  • The 2019 Camry comes standard with the Entune™ 3.0 Audio system, while the 2019 Optima includes its own UVO play system with an 8-inch touchscreen. The Toyota only includes a 7-inch touchscreen, standard, and it also lacks Android Auto™ compatibility.

Optima vs. Camry: Warranty Coverage

Drivers on the hunt for a reliable sedan might be tempted to choose the Toyota Camry over the Kia Optima, but we think they’d be making the wrong choice for their Ridgeland and Madison drives.Although the Camry was once more dependable, technological advances have made the Optima a fierce competitor. In fact, since Kia is so confident in their vehicle, they offer it with a warranty that Toyota simply can’t match:

  • With the Toyota Camry, you’ll receive a 36-month/36,000-mile basic warranty and a 60-month/60,000-mile powertrain warranty.
  • The Kia Optima goes above and beyond with a 60-month/60,000-mile basic warranty and a 120-month/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. Take an in-depth look at the Kia Warranty to find out what’s covered!

If you really want to drive with confidence, you’ll need to know that you’ve chosen a secure sedan. Continue your research by checking out the Kia Optima safety ratings.
