Is the 2018 Toyota Camry the Right Vehicle for You?

The Toyota Camry has been extremely popular on our lot for a long time, thanks to its affordability, versatility, and reliability. With the 2018 model, all of these benefits return; however, now they are augmented by modern technology, and by contemporary innovation.

How does this sedan stack up against its competition, though? More specifically, how does this vehicle compare to another popular sedan -- like the 2018 Honda Accord?


2018 Toyota Camry vs 2018 Honda Accord

There are a couple of areas in which these two vehicles differ in terms of ability and price. These differences could be the defining factor between a memorable driving experience, and an okay one.

  • When it comes to pricing, the 2018 Toyota Camry is more affordable than the 2018 Honda Accord.
  • On top of being more affordable, the 2018 Toyota Camry is more efficient than its competition, offering 41 highway mpg to the Honda Accord's 38 highway mpg.

The 2018 Toyota Camry vs. the 2018 Nissan Altima

  • While both models have similar engines, the 2018 Toyota Camry's standard engine hits 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque; this easily out-powers the 2018 Nissan Altima's base engine specs of 179 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque.
  • Even though it has a more powerful engine, the Camry continues to impress with higher fuel efficiency numbers than the Altima as well! The former achieves an EPA-estimated 29 mpg in the city and 41 mpg on the highway; the latter only manages an EPA-estimated 27 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway.
  • You'll have a much more engaging and fun drive with the Camry's standard 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters than with the Altima's standard CVT.
  • The Camry comes standard with navigation and adaptive cruise control, while the Altima requires you to choose a higher trim level to find these features.
  • When it comes to safety tech, the Camry is miles ahead of the Altima. The Camry comes standard with front knee airbags (not standard in the Altima), and has earned a 5-star front passenger crash test rating from the NHTSA (the Altima only earns 4 stars).
  • You'll enjoy more front shoulder and hip room, and more rear head, hip, and leg room in the Camry than in the Altima.
