Vehicle Comparison Rundown

If you’re trying to choose between Toyota’s two best-selling sedans, the Corolla and the Camry, there’s really just one notable difference: size.

Each of these vehicles contains the traditional Toyota ingredients of quality construction, dependability and durability. Both have front-wheel drive for good traction.

The Corolla is a great choice if your primary concern is money. It costs less to purchase, operate, insure and keep fueled. It is also easier to park and to maneuver in traffic. The Camry, on the other hand, is the answer if you want more — more interior space, more trunk space and a more comfortable and quieter ride.

While the Corolla is perfect for singles, couples and even young families with a small child or two, the Camry offers seating for five, more room inside and smoother highway cruising.
