2019 Hyundai Sonata vs Toyota Camry Comparison

After being established as a reputed automaker and quickly climbing the vehicle social ladder to be an intense competitor in the American automobile market, Hyundai-- the popular Korean car manufacturer-- has taken it quite seriously to generate cars worthy enough to contend with its long-established Japanese competitors. In the last few years, Hyundai has actually reshaped its car line-up and focused on electronic updates and innovation. Hyundai Sonata, which is relatively new in this segment, has actually been able to challenge America's mid-size sedan champion: the Camry. In this efficient sedan clash between two Asian archrivals, we will certainly see exactly how the new Hyundai Sonata and Toyota Camry stacks up versus each other.

Design Highlights:

Both automobiles flaunt an elegant body and a well-designed chassis, light-weight design and a balanced body. In their '19 version, both sedans look upscale and each has a unique approach when it involves exterior styling. Camry has been given a complete redesign and now includes many flashy changes for a completely new and athletic appearance. Hyundai kept the base Sonata design straightforward, provided the turbo versions strong designs and a sporty looking body. Black bezel headlights, mesh radiator grille, black Daytime Running Light borders, dark chrome molding, and a back bumper with diffuser are some of the very best exterior highlights of the new Sonata Limited 2.0T.

Inside, both cars have upscale cabins with a big emphasis on safety and security, guest comfort, and cabin innovation. The 2019 Camry flaunts a well-equipped dashboard, cockpit with innovative features, power-adjustable seats with leather, and deluxe cushioning for more guest luxury. Sonata, in its top trim, looks loaded with well-executed features. There is an upgraded audio system, infotainment system with tech pkg. and luxury leather trims inside the Sonata's fully furnished interior. Dual zone climate control, power moonroof and hands-free smart trunk are several of the best upgrades on the brand-new Sonata. The new version is roomier, boasts better leg and head room, and a good-sized cargo area.

Performance Highlights

Both automobiles include a fuel efficient 4-cylinder on the base model, yet inside Sonata Limited 2.0 there is a 245-hp 2.0 L Turbo 4-cylinder that simulates a high-end V-6 engine. Camry has V-6 at upper trims, and hybrid versions as well. Nevertheless, none of the Camry sedans have AWD like Sonata. Fuel efficiency wise, both vehicles offer incredible Miles Per Gallon numbers in the city and on highways.

Technology Highlights

Sonata takes modern technology development to the next level. It supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration for music, maps, navigation, messages, and entertainment. The brand-new Hyundai sedan has cordless charging, front and second-row USB charging ports, Hyundai Blue Link, and an exceptional interface equipped with multiple device connection and app-integration features. Toyota's flashy car - Camry - has a number of amazing multimedia and tech features too. This year Camry has at long last gotten Apple CarPlay mobile phone technology. Nevertheless, it still does not have Android Auto in its 2019 model. Simply put-- Sonata wins.
