Compare The Hyundai Sonata Versus The Toyota Camry

The sedan class is filled with a multitude of different makes and models that are all equally stunning and deserving of the compact, medium, or large sedan title, but, resting at the top of this pyramid is the Hyundai Sonata. This distinguished sedan offers plenty of power, modernized technology, and lavish amenities and design qualities to make it stand out in the crowd while keeping a smaller over-all starting price. It is similar to many other models, but how does it compare to perhaps one of its greatest competitors, the Toyota Camry?

Competitively Priced

One of the biggest selling points on a vehicle is how much it costs in the end. The Hyundai Sonata contains a significantly less price tag than the Toyota Camry, starting with the base models and all the way up to the top trims. Keep that extra money in your pocket and take your new Hyundai Sonata for longer road trips around Dallas or Frisco.

Greater Warranty

If something happens to go wrong, it's nice to know that you have a warranty to back you up. The Hyundai Sonata contains better basic, powertrain, and corrosion perforation warranties than the Toyota Camry. For example, the powertrain warranty's months/miles for the Hyundai Sonata is 120/100,000 while the Camry's is 60/60,000.

More Engine Power

We all want to go fast, especially when it comes to driving back home after a long day at work. The Hyundai Sonata is capable of getting you back faster with its 185-horsepower and 178 pounds-feet of torque found in just the base model. The Toyota Camry's base model only gains 178-horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque.

Compare the Hyundai Sonata and Honda Accord

While they may seem similar in appearance and function, the Hyundai Sonata outshines a new Honda Accord in a number of key areas:

  • The Sonata is the better value for our Dallas customers when compared to the Accord--coming in at a lower MSRP and offering more available features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a panoramic sunroof, and a hands-free smart trunk.
  • Both sedans offer incredible safety, with the Sonata earning "Good" ratings in all phase of crash tests from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety. The Sonata also earned an impressive five-star crash rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

  • The Sonata comes with more available cargo space than the Accord, offering 16.3 cubic feet of space compared to the Accord's 15.8 cubic feet of space.

  • Both models offer incredible reliability, with the Sonata earning a four out of five rating in the J.D. Power and Associates Predicted Reliability study.
