We're encouraging drivers to explore the benefits of the new 2019 Kia Optima, but not without first comparing it to worthy competitors like the Camry.

The new and improved Kia Optima features driver-assistive technology and intelligent safety systems, making it a stand-out option for commuters. The new Kia car also has an available panoramic sunroof, as well as remote lock/unlock capabilities.

With all of the Optima's ingenious design cues, how does it compare to its arch-nemesis, the 2019 Toyota Camry? In an epic showdown between specs and safety, these two models will showcase their benefits.

The Optima Has Clear Advantages Over the Camry

There is not a soul in Louisiana that enjoys pulling over during rush hour, popping the hood, and pouring anti-freeze in while everyone honks. As one sifts through various new Kia cars for sale near Metairie, Louisiana, a few factors are going to stand out—reliability is going to be one of them.

The new Kia Optima is superior to its competitors for multiple reasons. Firstly, it's as reliable as they come. This new sedan comes with a quality warranty option and emergency roadside assistance coverage, but that's not all. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has dubbed the 2019 Kia Optima as its 2019 IIHS Top Safety Pick.

The new Kia sedan offers excellent IIHS safety scores in various sectors, including "good" ratings in the driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, head restraint tests, and more. Given the information we have, the new Optima is the safer, more reliable sedan option.
