2015 Toyota Camry vs. 2015 Hyundai Sonata

July 20th, 2016 by

The 2015 Toyota Camry continues to turn heads wherever it goes, with its sleek styling, clean aerodynamic profile, and sporty grille. Buyers have several mid-size sedans in this class to choose from, but we feel you will come back to the Camry. Toyota’s Camry has led its class in worldwide sales for several years, and there are good reasons why.

Camry Vs. Hyundai Sonata

One car that can be compared to the Camry is the 2015 Hyundai Sonata. For the purposes of this comparison, we will look at the SE trim versions of both vehicles. Both vehicles use standard engines that are quite similar, a 2.5 liter 4-cylinder for the Camry and a 2.4 liter 4-cylinder for the Sonata. The difference becomes noticeable for owners who desire the most horsepower. The optional Camry engine is a 3.5 liter V-6 that develops 268 horsepower, while the Sonata offers a turbo 4-cylinder which only develops 245 horsepower, with only a slight improvement in fuel efficiency. It’s also hard to compare the exterior of one car with another since each person will have a different view of what they like. In general, Camry this year has developed a more sporty appearance, while the Sonata has chosen to move to a more conventional body style, perhaps to simulate a luxury car look. Good or bad, you will have to decide.

Moving to the interior and technology of the two vehicles, Camry is again the winner. It has rear seat leg and head room that exceeds the Sonata. It uses a 6.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system, whereas the Hyundai only has a 5.0-inch screen. One big advantage of the Camry is the forward collision avoidance system. A forward-looking radar will sense when a collision is imminent, and both alert the driver and apply the brakes. This is a significant improvement over the Sonata, which will only alert the driver if a collision is anticipated.

The 2015 Toyota Camry should definitely be on your list of vehicles to review, if you are in the market for a quality mid-size sedan. Come to Doral Toyota, and we can help get you a Camry that meets your needs.
