Are you shopping for a new midsized sedan? While traditional sedans are starting to be pushed aside in favor of crossovers, midsized models are still going strong. One of the best-selling midsized sedans on the market is the Toyota Camry. Drivers love that they are getting a high-quality product for a great price while still getting a chance to enjoy contemporary styling and outstanding performance. 

Even with all the praise from drivers and industry critics, the 2020 Toyota Camry still faces some tough competition from other leading brands – including Kia and its Optima model. To help you see what makes the 2020 Toyota Camry the better buy, we have created a special comparison.

What Makes the 2020 Toyota Camry the Best Buy?

One reason why we love the 2020 Toyota Camry is that it comes available with three distinct engine options to suit your needs. Sure, you get three options with the Kia Optima, and you will enjoy decent performance, but a turbo 4-cylinder just doesn’t cut it if you want more aggressive driving dynamics like how you get with the Toyota Camry model’s available V6. And a true hybrid engine is guaranteed to take you farther while still being easy on the planet. Even if you choose the base conventional 4-cylinder engine for your 2020 Toyota Camry, you will enjoy significantly better fuel ratings compared to the 2020 Kia Optima. 

We also love that the 2020 Toyota Camry comes available in twice as many trim options as the 2020 Kia Optima. You might think that this is a little excessive, but Toyota wants to make sure that you get the perfect number of features for your lifestyle and budget. And our sales professionals will gladly work with you to find your perfect 2020 Toyota Camry!
