The Toyota Camry and Toyota Corolla have both been mainstays in the sedan world for decades – and for good reason! They’re economical while offering cutting-edge features, they’re fuel-efficient, and they offer well designed and comfortable interiors with enough space for a small family. So, what are the differences between these two sedans, and which should you pick? Let’s explore those questions further with a side-by-side comparison of the Toyota Corolla and the Toyota Camry. You might just find that they’re more alike than you imagined!

Interior Space

Though the Corolla sells as a compact car and the Camry is a midsize car, their interior dimensions are spot-on. You’ll find the same amount of head and legroom in the first row of both cars; the rear legroom in the Corolla comes in at 34.8 inches to the Camry’s 38 inches. Additionally, the Corolla offers 13 cubic-feet of trunk space with the Camry clocking only one more cubic-foot at 14 cubic-feet.


Both cars offer two gas engines and a hybrid option. The Corolla’s base engine is a 1.8-liter that makes 139 horsepower, and the upgraded Corolla engine is a 2.0 liter that puts out 169 horsepower. The Camry’s standard engine is a 2.5-liter that generates 203 horsepower, and a 3.5-liter V6 is available with an impressive 301 horsepower. Additionally, both cars offer a hybrid engine that significantly boosts fuel economy up over the already-impressive numbers.


Inside, both cars offer well-designed interiors with a host of the latest technology and comfort-focused amenities. Apple CarPlay® is standard on both, though only the Camry comes with Android Auto for right now. Adaptive front lighting, an 8-inch infotainment system, a JBL-branded premium audio system, a digital instrument cluster, and Toyota Connected Services® can be found in the various trim levels of both the Corolla and the Camry. Additionally, luxurious amenities like leather upholstery, heated seats, power-adjustable seats, and dual-zone climate control can be had in both the Corolla and the Camry.


Toyota takes your safety seriously – it’s why both the Corolla and Camry come standard with the Toyota Safety Sense P™ suite that offers adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warn ing, and lane-keeping assist. Both sedans also offer blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic detection in upper trims, and the Camry offers rear parking sensors with rear automated emergency braking.
