2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid vs 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid
While the Prius is without a doubt the most popular hybrid vehicle from the Toyota brand, if not on the entire market, the Camry is probably the most popular vehicle the brand has to offer period. Mix in some of that signature hybrid technology, and you’ve got another very viable hybrid option available on the market from Toyota. We thought we’d see just how well this car measures up to one of its biggest hybrid competitors, by comparing the 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid vs 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid.
Advantages of the 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid
As you can tell by looking at the table above, the two vehicles are very comparable to one another, but the Camry Hybrid pulls ahead in every single category, even if only by a little. Obviously the most important aspect of a hybrid vehicle is its fuel economy, and a 0.3 l/100km advantage in combined efficiency is definitely better than no advantage at all. It might only be a bit of pocket change, but the Camry Hybrid will save you money at the pump in the long run.
One horsepower would hardly be noticeable, yet again… it’s still an advantage. However, the most noticeable advantages that the Camry Hybrid has over its Kia competitor have to do with space, which is an important aspect in any vehicle. With a trunk that offers an extra 2.3 cubic feet of space, you’ll have plenty of room for luggage or whatever you need to bring along with you. The cabin is larger as well, delivering an extra 2.8 cu. ft. of space for you and your passengers to stretch out and get comfortable in.
