Midsize sedans like the Toyota Camry and Hyundai Sonata are great choices for everything from your commute to getting your family around town. So, which one is right for you?

Maguire Toyota put this 2019 Toyota Camry vs. Hyundai Sonata comparison together to help drivers near Ithaca, Corning, and Binghamton decide.

2019 Toyota Camry vs Hyundai Sonata Performance

The 2019 Toyota Camry offers several efficient and exciting powertrains. To deliver lots of power, there's a 3.5L V8 engine that can get up to 301 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque.

The 2019 Hyundai Sonata doesn't offer as much power or efficiency. Its strongest engine is a 2.0L 4-cylinder that gets just 245 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.

If you're more focuses on fuel economy, the Toyota offers a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that can deliver an EPA-estimated 29 MPG city and 41 MPG highway[i].

The Hyundai falls short again. Its 2.4L 4-cylinder engine can only muster an EPA-estimated 26 MPG city and 35 MPG highway[ii].

2019 Toyota Camry vs Hyundai Sonata Interior

Both the 2019 Toyota Camry and Hyundai Sonata offer seating for up to five people. Their versatile interiors each feature a 7-inch touchscreen on the dashboard, a rear center armrest, and 60/40 split fold-down rear seats.

Your passengers will probably be more comfortable inside the Toyota though. It features 38 inches of rear legroom. The interior of the Hyundai has a smaller back seat with just 35.6 inches of legroom.

The Toyota Camry also offers more options. You can create a relaxed feel with cloth seats, a refined cabin with leather seats and wood accents, or a sporty cockpit with striking red leather seats.

The Hyundai Sonata also offers cloth or leather seats, but they're only available in beige, black, and gray. Plus, it doesn't offer any luxury accents.

2019 Toyota Camry vs Hyundai Sonata Safety

Above all else, the 2019 Toyota Camry was built to give you peace of mind. It keeps you safe with 10 airbags, including rear seat-mounted side airbags and front and rear side curtain airbags.

While the 2019 Hyundai Sonata has side curtain airbags, its interior only features a total of seven airbags.

The Toyota Camry also uses two safety systems to protect you. The Star Safety System™ delivers a dependable drive with Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, and Smart Stop Technology.

Meanwhile, you'll have lots of sensors and cameras watching out for you. Toyota Safety Sense™ P prevents accidents with driver assistance features like:

  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
  • Automatic High Beams
  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control

The Hyundai Sonata offers several of these features, but they aren't standard on every trim level like they are on the Toyota.
