Safety is one the most important parts about driving in Orlando.  It is important to know that you are driving a car that has your back and can alert you when you may not be aware.  The Kia Optima has driver alert monitors that detect an inattentive driver and will sound warnings and suggest breaks to avoid a collision and drifting.  The Toyota Camera does not offer this feature.

The Kia Optima comes with a full 5-year/60,000-mile basic warranty.  This warranty covers the entire car and includes 24-hour roadside assistance.  The Toyota Camera only has a 3-year/36,000-mile basic warranty that expires two years and 24,000 miles sooner.  Kia's powertrain warranty covers the Optima for five years and 40,000 miles longer than Toyota covers the Camry.  If repairs are needed on the transmission, axles, engine, joints or driveshaft, this is covered for ten years and 100,000 miles.  This is compared to the Camry whose powertrain warranty ends after five years and 60,000 miles.


Fuel Economy and Range

The 2019 Kia Optima uses regular unleaded gasoline which is overall going to save you money at the gas pump compared to the Camry XSE/SLE which requires premium that can cost 20 to 55 cents more per gallon.  The Optima also has four gallons more of fuel capacity space than the Camry L's standard fuel tank.  You'll spend more time getting to where you need to go and less time at the gas pump.

Cargo and Capacity

The Optima also features fold-down rear seats for extra space for longer and bulkier objects while the Camry does not offer this feature.  For even more convenience the Optima offers a hands-free opening trunk, so you don't have to put your items down when loading up the trunk.  The Camry does not feature this convenient addition.
