Shopping for a new car can be difficult, especially drivers looking in the midsize sedan category. There are countless options when it comes to an average size sedan, but most drivers are interested in the same qualities: affordability, safety and efficiency. Midsize sedans are the perfect vehicle for many drivers because they’re comfortable and spacious for the whole family, yet they’re small enough to get around town easily and maneuver through heavy traffic on the highway. Our team brought together the 2016 Toyota Camry and the 2016 Hyundai Sonata to give drivers an idea of what these popular midsize sedans have to offer.
Both vehicles are equipped with similar size engines with four cylinders and a 6-speed automatic transmission. With similar engines come similar fuel economies. The 2016 Toyota Camry gets an impressive estimated 25 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway. The 2016 Hyundai Sonata is slightly more efficient with the same city estimate and 38 mpg on the highway.
