2017 Hyundai Sonata vs. 2017 Toyota Camry

The Toyota Camry has for a long time been a staple for people shopping for dependable, long lasting and trustworthy full size sedans. However, this is not your only choice any more. In fact, the 2017 Hyundai Sonata is a full-size sedan that has a lot more to offer compared to the Toyota Camry. This is irrespective of any metric used to compare the two. The facts proving this are discussed below.

Design & Style

The Toyota Camry has stuck to its traditional philosophy of car design, which basically involves designing vehicles which are not really ugly, but which are still nondescript. In other words, the Toyota Camry would just be a face in the crowds despite the fact that it’s a very new car. That said, the interior is neatly designed, though one gets the feeling that most of the trim is not of very high quality, and may disintegrate at some point.

The 2017 Hyundai Sonata has been designed to look classy and polished, with an aggressive frontal stance. The use of high quality material and excellent build quality in the interior results in a car that feels luxurious and special.

Technology & Safety

The Toyota Camry comes with a good number of tech and safety features, as you would expect from a car manufactured at this time. These include Android Auto, cruise control, a rearview camera and integrated Bluetooth connectivity. For safety, some of the offerings in addition to ABS and stability control include traction control and multiple airbags, including side airbags for rear passengers.

The 2017 Hyundai Sonata offers a lot more, such as a hands-free smart trunk, a 400-watt 9-speaker audio system, a proximity key and Blue Link connectivity which allows you to operate some aspects of the car using an app on your phone. In addition to the basic safety features such as ABS, the Hyundai also has lane departure warning systems, automatic high beam assist, rear parking sensors and roadside assistance systems as well.


The 2017 model of the Toyota Camry’s base engine is a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder gasoline engine producing 178 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque at 4,100 rpm. This is connected to a 6-speed automatic transmission unit connected to the front wheels.

The base 2017 Hyundai Sonata ships with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine which produces 185 horsepower, which makes it faster than the Toyota considering that the Hyundai is also lighter in addition to having more horsepower and torque. The Hyundai’s engine is also mated to a six-speed transmission system.

The Bottom Line

While the Toyota Camry is a ubiquitous vehicle in many countries for a reason, the 2017 Hyundai Sonata is the better vehicle of the two in many areas. All the positive attributes and much more can be found in the Hyundai Sonata, so it would only make sense to buy it over the Toyota.
