2017 Kia Optima vs. 2017 Toyota Camry vs. 2017 Nissan Altima

The Kia Optima is the official vehicle of the NBA, and as such, it dribbles circles around its competition in the midsize sedan class, such as the 2017 Nissan Altima and the 2017 Toyota Camry, thanks to its performance, space on the interior and warranty coverage, among other advantages.

While the 2017 Camry and the 2017 Altima have starting power outputs that are less than 180 horsepower, the 2017 Optima norms 185 HP in its base trim level, which gives you more giddyap and go when you need to make evasive maneuvers on the highway, or just need more of a boost to easily merge into a new traffic lane. And while you're on the road, you can feel extra comfort and peace of mind with the 2017 Optima's industry-leading warranty coverage, with 10 years or 100,000 miles of coverage for limited powertrain, which is eons longer than the 2017 Altima and 2017 Camry's coverage of 5 years or 60,000 miles.
