Toyota Camry vs Toyota Corolla

2019 Toyota Camry

If you’re looking for a great compact sedan that can provide good entertainment and safety features, a Toyota is for you. But for many drivers, it comes down to a choice of going with a Camry or a Corolla.

At Norm Reeves Toyota San Diego, we want to help drivers in the San Diego, Kearny Mesa, and El Cajon areas find the right car for them. Read more to learn the differences between the 2019 Toyota Camry and the 2019 Toyota Corolla.

Vehicle Dimensions

2019 Toyota CamryThe Toyota Corolla is a compact sedan with a length of about 183.1 inches and a width of about 69.9 inches. If you’re a driver who commutes in the city, a compact car like this is ideal for fitting into tight parking spaces and moving easily through traffic.

With the Toyota Camry the dimensions are a bit larger. The length is 192.7 inches and the width is 72.4 inches. This added size allows the Camry to have a larger trunk with 15.1 cubic feet of cargo space. The Corolla offers a sizable 13 cubic feet of trunk space, but the Camry is built more for carrying capacity.

If you want cabin space, however, the Corolla gives you more room there with 42.3 inches of front legroom and 41.4 inches of rear legroom. The Camry offers the same amount of front legroom and 38 inches of rear legroom. The Corolla will let your passengers stretch their legs out a bit more.

If you need a small vehicle for your commute the Corolla is what you want. Its efficient design enables it to fit well in an urban environment where navigating traffic is a must. But for drivers who need space to carry everything they need, the Camry is a good choice.

Safety Technology

2019 Toyota Camry BlackIf you’re looking for safety, both these vehicles will have you covered. Both the Camry and the Corolla offer the Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) suite. This gives these cars features like Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, which is a system that helps keep you in your lane.

The TSS-P suite is designed to keep you safe by detecting dangers as they happen. The system works to prevent dangers from happening in the first place, making both these cars great choices if you want to keep friends and family safe inside the vehicle.

Engine Performance

If you want a car with a bit more pep, you’ll want to look into the 2019 Toyota Camry. This vehicle offers an available 3.5L V6 as its most powerful engine. And this engine is certainly brawny with 306 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque. If you’re looking for a vehicle with more power, the Camry offers this.

The Corolla offers a smaller engine to maintain the compact design, but it still offers a lot in terms of performance. With an available 1.8L four-cylinder engine, this compact sedan puts out 140 horsepower and 126 lb-ft of torque. This car is still powerful, especially by compact sedan standards.

If you want a vehicle that offers just a raw, powerful drive, the Camry provides this. But if you want an efficient, energetic, compact sedan, the Corolla is a good fit.
