2019 Optima vs Toyota Camry

2019 Kia Optima Gateway Warrington PA

Kia Optima focuses on advancing the perception of the brand as a refined, sporty, and premium manufacturer. Optima brings an evolution to all critical vehicle systems. Namely, Optima uses almost double the amount of advanced high strength steel compared to previous models. The use of this ISO-Structure body provides significant improvements to NVH, safety, quietness, and performance.

The competition here is the 2019 Toyota Camry. After a complete redesign for 2018, the 2019 Toyota Camry carries over nearly all options leaving it virtually unchanged. But, there is one addition worth noting, the Camry offers Apple CarPlay, which Kia offers as standard.
