2018 Kia Optima vs. 2018 Toyota Camry 

When it comes to sedans, the options are nearly limitless on the U.S. market. With that said, not all the choices out there are clear winners. After a while all the options can really blend together. Break away from the ordinary, cookie-cutter models with the 2018 Kia Optima. It's new for the model year with a variety of updates, including standard Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a 7-inch touchscreen, rear parking sensors and blind-spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert for all Optima trims.  

Thanks to these updates the 2018 Kia Optima offers even stronger value for the money. But how does the new midsize sedan compare to the fully redesigned 2018 Toyota Camry?

When the 2018 Kia Optima and 2018 Toyota Camry are side-by-side, the two are now very similar in length. This is in part thanks to the Camry's 2018 redesign, which includes a longer wheelbase, new aerodynamic styling and refreshed suspension. Where the Camry excels is its smooth handling and variety of engine options. 

However, the 2018 Toyota Camry doesn't offer Apple CarPlay or Android Auto and can't match the 2018 Kia Optima's spacious interior. Where the 2018 Toyota Camry struggles with below-average trunk space, the Optima excels and packs even more room inside the cabin. Not only is the 2018 Kia Optima's cabin larger, but there are a generous array of high-tech features for the money.  

Even the entry-level LX is packed with technologies, including cruise control, Bluetooth, a 7-inch touchscreen, a six-speaker sound system, USB port, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, HD and satellite radio and a rearview camera. The list only goes on from there.
