Camry or Corolla: Which Toyota Sedan Is Right for You?

Toyota Camry | Toronto, ON

If you’re looking for a sedan to get you around Toronto, then it’s likely you’re considering the Toyota Camry or Toyota Corolla. But the big question is: which is right for you? Here’s an overview of these two models so you can decide which one is the best fit for your lifestyle.

Toyota Corolla

As a compact sedan, the Toyota Corolla is ideal for city living. Its smaller size can easily manoeuvre into tight parking spaces and through Toronto traffic — but it still boasts ample interior space. The Corolla can fit up to five passengers with up to 371 litres of cargo space in its trunk. The Corolla is also efficient, getting as low as 7.6 L/100 km in the city and 5.8 L/100 km on the highway.

Once you’re inside the Corolla, you will find an abundance of creature comforts and stylish accents. Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone integration come standard, allowing you to access your smartphone’s apps directly on the 8-inch touch screen. The Corolla also comes standard with the Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 package of safety technologies to keep you feeling confident on the road.

With all of these features, it’s also important to remember that the Corolla has a lower price tag than the Camry, making it a good option if you’re on a budget.

Toyota Camry

If you’re looking for something spacious, the Camry is the vehicle for you. This midsize sedan offers up to 965 mm of rear legroom, while also fitting up to 428 litres of cargo in its trunk. It even comes standard with 60/40-split rear seats to expand your cargo capabilities.

The Camry is also elegantly designed both inside and out. Sweeping lines are highlighted by soft-touch materials, and ergonomic buttons and knobs throughout give the Camry a driver-oriented design that will keep you comfy throughout the day. Its two engine options offer more power than the Corolla, so if you want extra performance, the Camry should be your go-to option.

To learn more about the Camry and the Corolla, you’re invited to stop in at Downtown Toyota in Toronto and take both these sedans out for a test drive.
