The Toyota Camry is one of the most iconic sedans ever made. Even in a time when more and more Americans choose crossovers, the Camry continues to a be top seller. The 2022 model that is now available at Taylor Toyota of Hermitage does not arrive with any major changes, but Toyota has made refinements to the standard and available equipment with all six trim levels. Another popular option in this space is the Sonata from Hyundai. In the following sections, we will compare the 2022 Toyota Camry vs 2022 Hyundai Sonata with an emphasis on what makes the Camry the most popular sedan.
The 2022 Toyota Camry and the 2022 Hyundai Sonata are both four-door midsize sedans, and they are actually quite similar in size. The Camry has a 111.2-inch wheelbase and a 5.7-inch ground clearance, and it measures 192.1 inches in length—about 16 feet—56.9 inches tall and 72.4 inches wide. The Sonata, on the other hand, has a 111.8-inch wheelbase and a 5.3-inch ground clearance, and it measures 192.9 inches in length, 56.9 inches tall as well and 73.2 inches wide. The base Camry has 17-inch alloy wheels, and 18- and 19-inch wheels are available via the higher trim levels. The base Sonata has 16-inch alloy wheels, and Hyundai offers 17-, 18- and 19-icnh wheels via the higher trim levels.
Both vehicles are five-passenger sedans that provide more than 100 cubic feet of total passenger volume, but Toyota and Hyundai take a different approach to using that space. The Camry provides more than 42 inches of front legroom, which is ample for most drivers. The Sonata provides more than 46 inches of front legroom, but that comes at the expense of less rear legroom. Consumer trends reveal that drivers want the roomier rear seat, and the Toyota provides almost 3 inches more at 38 inches. Toyota lists its trunk space at 15.1 cubic feet. Hyundai lists its at 16.0 cubic feet. However, it is worth noting that several auto magazines found no significant differences in luggage testing. Toyota also manages to distinguish the Camry with its base package. It includes, for instances, dual-zone automatic climate control, which is a feature available with the Hyundai through its up-level trim.
The powertrain section of any 2022 Toyota Camry vs 2022 Hyundai Sonata comparison is sure to draw a lot of attention because people who love sedans love to drive. Toyota offers three options. The standard option pairs an eight-speed automatic transmission with a 203-horsepower four-cylinder engine. It also offers a hybrid version of that engine that makes 208 hp and is paired with an eCVT. Toyota also offers a 301-hp V6 that is standard with the TRD and optional with the XLE and XSE. The hybrid powertrain is available with any non-TRD trim level. The base engine in the 2022 Hyundai Sonata is 191-hp four-cylinder paired with an eight-speed automatic. A 180-hp turbo engine becomes standard starting with the SEL, and the N Line is a performance edition with a 290-hp turbo four. Hyundai also offers a hybrid powertrain with a Six-speed automatic transmission that makes 192 hp.
Both automakers offer a robust standard tech package with color HD touchscreens, rearview camera system and numerous other driver assists. One way that Toyota sets the Camry apart is that its base model comes with a traffic-adaptive cruse control system that can recognize street signs and adjust your speed accordingly. The 2022 Hyundai Sonata does have that tech available but only with the top trim. Toyota also offers a Driver Assist package, and it adds some tech that you will not find on the Hyundai. This includes a head-up display that present important information via the windshield.
