The 2016 Toyota Camry has a powertrain that begins with 178 HP in base models, but the 2016 Kia Optima gets a superior 185 HP in its base models. Not to mention the new-for-2016 models trim option for the Optima, the LX 1.6T, which gets fuel economy that is into the stratosphere with 28 mpg city, 39 mpg highway.

Those numbers for the LX 1.6T easily surpass the 2016 Camry's top fuel economy of 25 mpg city, 35 mpg highway, and base Optima models also edge the Camry with 25 mpg city, 37 mpg highway. And once you gather yourself from the savings you'll get with the 2016 Optima, as well as its sleek, Euro-sport design that is a cut above the other midsize sedans on the streets, then you'll also be able to appreciate its faster response time in tight spaces, with a curb-to-curb turning circle of 35.8 feet to the 2016 Camry's 36.7 feet.
