2018 Hyundai Sonata vs. 2018 Toyota Camry

A much-needed injection to style and comfort has made the 2018 Hyundai Sonata a quick favorite among car enthusiasts in Springfield, PA. The few tweaks featured in the sedan, in comparison to the 2018 Toyota Camry, run deeper than face value, and prove it a better contender in the market. Here are a few reasons why the population prefers the Sonata to the Camry.

Design & Style

A new phase in redesigning the exterior of the Camry started in 2014. Not much has changed since then, only that now the styling is being done on a lower, longer and wider car. The two-part grill at the front is a killer but the complexity of the sculpted rear and siding, coupled with the revised rear bumpers, trunk lid spoiler and extensions underneath the door make the 2018 Camry feel a little bit too much!

The 2018 Sonata on the other hand is a sight to behold. The front fascia retains an evocative tune of what Hyundai brings to the auto market, with the stylish hexagonal grille enhancing the car’s general appearance. The rear end as well has a cleaner look; a big improvement to what was seen on previous versions. A visit in the auto’s dashboard reveals a sleek 8-inch infotainment screen with a silver accent ring highlighting the technology auto experts once tried to keep hidden.

Technology and Safety

Toyota Camry does quite a number here, featuring ten well placed airbags around the car, compared to Sonata’s standard 7 airbag setting. Both cars have standard cruise control, lane departure and forward collision warnings, features that are becoming the standard for both luxury and economy cars.

However, the 2018 Hyundai Sonata does well to have in automated emergency braking systems bundled together with the cruise control and the lane control. A new set of blind spot monitoring systems has also been introduced, as well as a stability control feature, to give it a plus above the Camry.


The 2018 Toyota Camry is a heavy machine, making use of the manufacturer’s latest hybrid technology, seen first in the 2016 Prius. Using a 2.5-liter, 176-hp engine, the hybrid system makes it largely efficient on light demand. Nonetheless, its 8-speed transmission does not work best on quick acceleration as transmission has to sink two or three shifts downwards before surging forward.

The 2018 Sonata is not much of a bulldog when it comes to power and performance; but it should not be underestimated, as its hood houses a 2.4-liter, 185hp engine. The 4-cylinder equipment injects directly, making it more effective and fuel efficient. Sonata is generally smooth and quiet, with the 8-speed automatics giving better shifts than the Camry.

The Bottom Line

The Camry cannot be termed as a fast car, or one that inspires a combination of speed and comfort, though it is well placed when it comes to smoothness and power. The Sonata on the other hand scores highly on its exterior’s outlook and interior’s maturity. Its combination of fuel efficiency, torque and comfort make it a better contender in comparison to the Camry.
