Compare the 2016 Hyundai Sonata to the 2016 Toyota Camry in Queens, NY

Now more than ever before, drivers have a multitude of options when shopping for their next new car, particularly when the segment in question is the midsize sedan. Once notorious for so-so styling, sleepy performance, and uninspired interiors, midsize sedans of today are a complete and utter departure from those of years past. Modern sedans are still extolled for their exceptional fuel economy and general practical nature, but now we can officially add verbiage such as "sporty," "powerful," "engaging," and "refined" to the list.

Two of the top midsize contenders for the model year 2016 are the Toyota Camry and the Hyundai Sonata, available here at Nemet Hyundai. Both options certainly have their strengths, but if you were to ask us, we here at our Jamaica, NY dealership think that the Sonata outshines the Camry in a number of significant ways.

Toyota has created a niche for itself as being a purveyor of automotive reliability; based on this reputation, one might be inclined to believe that the Camry is the optimal midsize sedan choice for drivers looking for both quality and value. However, upon closer inspection, savvy shoppers will find that with the Hyundai Sonata, they will actually enjoy a significantly more extensive powertrain warranty than with the Camry--120 months and 100,000 powertrain warranty miles as opposed to the Toyota brand's 60 month, 60,000 mile powertrain warranty.

Retail Price / Fuel Efficiency

The 2016 Sonata has a lower MSRP than its Toyota counterpart, meaning you can save yourself about a thousand dollars or, take that money in invest it in a higher, more luxuriously appointed trim level. The base Sonata and Camry get approximately the same mileage in city driving, but on the highway the Sonata gets 38 miles per gallon to the Camry's 35. And if you think this improved fuel economy must come at the expense of power or torque, think again: when comparing base models of both midsize cars, the Sonata is more powerfully equipped on both fronts.

Interior Space

The 2016 Sonata offers up more cubic feet of cargo volume than the Camry, as well as more front headroom, front hip room, rear hip room, front leg room, and overall interior volume.The overall passenger volume of the Sonata is 106.1 cu. ft. compared to the Camry at 102.7 cu. ft. and the interior maximum cargo volume of the Sonata also beats out the Camry 16 cu. ft. to 15 cu. ft.
