Compare the 2018 Hyundai Sonata vs Toyota Camry for Your Gastonia Commute

Arrive in style to your Gastonia, NC destinations when you make the new Hyundai Sonata your choice for transportation. Whether you seek to elevate your appeal or extend your long-term value, the new Sonata offers many enhancements that are simply not available to the competition. Let's compare the Hyundai with the 2018 Toyota Camry to explore how these rival sedans match up for drivers in the Charlotte and Huntersville, NC area.

Interior and Exterior Sophistication of the New Sonata and Camry

Both the new Hyundai Sonata and new Toyota Camry models received an update for the 2018 model year, each receiving enhancements to the interior and exterior. While we can all agree that both vehicles offer a sophisticated design that suits families or professionals alike, the new Sonata clearly excels with a more aggressive mid-cycle update. The Sonata features YES Essentials® premium stain and odor resistant cloth seats that provide additional value for your long-term automotive investment. The 2018 Sonata also offers more front legroom, interior cargo volume, and passenger space than its Toyota sedan counterpart. While the Toyota makes a good show of 42.1 inches of front legroom, the Hyundai sedan boasts 45.5 inches. The 2018 Camry only offers 15.1 cubic feet of interior cargo volume and 100 cubic feet of passenger volume, while the Hyundai Sonata boasts 16.3 cubic feet and 106 cubic feet, respectively. If you want ample room for people and packages, the new Hyundai Sonata clearly dominates the competition.

Performance and Technology Comparison

When it comes to traveling between Charlotte and Gastonia, NC destinations, both the Hyundai Sonata and Toyota Camry can carry you with ease. Each vehicle comes as a Front Wheel Drive (FWD) model and can transport up to five passengers. The base trim of the Camry does offer a small advantage over the Sonata SE regarding horsepower, generating 203 horsepower in comparison with the Hyundai car's 185 horsepower. However, the Hyundai Sonata Limited 2.0T and Sport 2.0T trims generate up to 245 horsepower with a turbocharged engine, making them excellent options for drivers that crave power. The new Hyundai Sonata does have an edge in maneuverability. Enjoy a better turning radius in the Sonata, cutting in at 17.9 feet instead of the Camry's wide 18.7 feet.

Safety remains a priority for both auto makers, and the Hyundai and Toyota cars both rank well in independent testing. Both vehicles come with a generous range of standard and optional driver-assist technologies. When it comes to adding an extra viewpoint for changing lanes, only the 2018 Sonata features a standard blind spot detection warning system. This feature only comes as an option on the new Camry. When you factor in the lower starting price of the Hyundai Sonata, it's clear to see that the Camry simply cannot compete in terms of value.
