2016 Toyota Camry

Manassas drivers considering a Toyota may run into the dilemma of Camry or Corolla. What’s the difference? Both vehicles offer a plethora of features that are similar, but there is plenty to differentiate the 2016 Camry from the 2016 Corolla.

Performance Comparison

The Camry is a larger car with more power than the Corolla. If you’re looking for a sedan with some power, the 2016 Camry offers a 2.5L 4-cylinder and the 3.5L V6 – that’s 268 horsepower in a mid-size sedan. The Corolla’s engine is smaller, with a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine. Manassas drivers looking for more performance may want to look at the Camry.

Fuel Efficiency Comparison

Fuel efficiency should be important when looking at a sedan or compact. While the 2016 Camry gets an estimated 25 city/35 highway mpg, the Corolla gets an estimated 28 city/37 highway mpg*. The Corolla is slightly better with fuel efficiency. However, the Camry line offers a hybrid model that completely offsets this with an estimated 43 city/39 highway mpg*.

Technology Capabilities

Both vehicles have technology that is up to par with what Manassas drivers expect in a car these days. The Corolla offers Entune Premium Audio with Integrated Navigation and App Suite, Bluetooth, backup camera, steering wheel controls, and USB ports. The Camry has the Entune Suite, Nav system with traffic, trip information, and the newer Qi-compatible wireless charging for smartphones.

Price Comparison

The Camry is a larger vehicle with a few more perks available than the Corolla, so its MSRP is going to be higher. With a starting base MSRP of $23,070, it is pricier than the Corolla’s base MSRP of $17,230**.

Both cars can seat five, though the Camry is a bit more spacious. However, the Corolla’s smaller size might better serve Manassas drivers who venture into city parking lots where space is a premium.
