The 2015 Toyota Camry offers St. Augustine and Jacksonville drivers an exceptional option in the search for a powerful family car. With better fuel economy, more power, and superior available features over others in its class, it’s no surprise that the Camry won the KBB.com “Best Buy” award for 2015. To demonstrate the true value of this vehicle, we’ve compared the 2015 Toyota Camry to the 2015 Hyundai Sonata. It’s no surprise that the Camry outclasses the Sonata in multiple ways.

Performance and Fuel Efficiency

The Camry offers better performance and more overall power than the Hyundai Sonata.

  • 2015 Toyota Camry Engines – Camry buyers can choose between the 2.5L 4-cylinder engine capable of producing 178 hp, or the 3.5L V6 motor that produces 268 hp.
  • 2015 Hyundai Sonata Engines – The Sonata’s engines have a lower power output when compared to the Camry’s choices. The 1.6L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine generates 177 hp, and the 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder only manages 245 hp.

For superior fuel economy Toyota offers the Camry Hybrid that pairs the 2.5L 4-cylinder engine with a 149 kW electric motor to return as much as 38 mpg city and 40 mpg highway. The Sonata ECO, by contrast, manages only 28 mpg city and 38 mph highway ratings.

Stellar Features

The new Toyota Camry offers more standard and available features than the Hyundai Sonata, particularly ones focused on driver and passenger safety.

  • 2015 Toyota Camry Safety – The Camry has standard whiplash lessening seats, which flex slightly during certain rear-end collisions. This helps to protect drivers and passengers from serious neck injuries. Camry also offers an optional pre-collision system to warn drivers of potential accidents, and it can also apply the brakes if the driver fails to react.
  • 2015 Hyundai Sonata Safety – The Sonata has fixed headrests, which do not mitigate neck injuries, and while the Sonata can alert drivers to forward collision danger, it cannot apply the brakes to reduce damage if an accident cannot be avoided.

Overall Value

For power and available features, it’s clear that the Camry is the better choice, but the Toyota sedan’s superiority doesn’t end there. Intellichoice has shown that, when supplementary car ownership cost are accounted for—like insurance, depreciation, and maintenance costs—the Hyundai Sonata could cost drivers as much as $6,123 more over the first five years of ownership. That’s because Toyota’s regular warranty covers scheduled repairs and maintenance for the first 24 months of ownership. With more than twice as many Toyota dealerships as there are Hyundai dealerships, repairs and services are easier to come by when you own the new Camry.
