Mid-size sedans continue to be one of the most popular types of cars on the road for families who want a vehicle with a low price tag and excellent fuel-efficiency. The 2018 Hyundai Sonata and the 2018 Toyota Camry are rivals of one another due to their similarities. When you're looking for a new vehicle that is reliable, there are a few differences between the two car models.

Specs at a Glance

Technology and Gadgets

The 2018 Hyundai Sonata is equipped with more gadgets and tech tools that enhance the driving experience and make it easier to perform more tasks without becoming distracted. Standard tech features also include Bluetooth, a tire pressure warning, audio and cruise controls on steering wheel, a backup camera, stability control, USB inputs, aux audio inputs, Lane Keep Assist, and smart cruise control with stop-start.

The 2018 Toyota Camry refuses to incorporate Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which most cars now feature. Fortunately, it now comes with an upgraded JBL sound system, which offers premium sound when you're listening to a podcast or your favorite album. The navigation is an additional feature to receive an upgrade that is more modern. The vehicle is also equipped with a 360-degree parking camera to reduce the risk of a collision or fender bender.

On the Exterior

The 2018 Hyundai Sonata is sleek and stylish, proving that the car model continues to evolve each year and stand out amongst its competitors. The latest design has a less polarizing appearance compared to the Camry with a bold grille that looks high-end and allows the car to look like a luxury vehicle. The headlights also extend upwards and look fierce in the front for an extra sporty touch. Chrome trim is used around the windows and on the bottom of the body.

It's hard to ignore the new design that comes with the 2018 Toyota Camry, which is considered to be wild and unique with its look. For some people who may be seeking to drive a more conservative car model, the Camry can be a turnoff due to its oversized grill that takes up more than half of the front of the car. The sharp headlights and eye-catching lines also make the vehicle more noticeable on the road.

Interior Features

The interior of the Sonata is reserved and conservative with a horizontal layout to the buttons, which makes it user-friendly and easy to adjust the settings. It's built with a sizeable eight-inch touchscreen that is customizable and includes Apple Carplay and Android Auto. Vented seats and a heated steering wheel boost the level of comfort that is provided. Window shades are also available in the back, which can block the sun and also make it a more family-friendly car. More passenger volume and cargo space is available compared to the Camry, which is an additional perk. The rear seats even fold flat if extra cargo space is needed while on the go.

Although the Camry isn't known for having a luxurious cabin, the latest model features real-stitched upholstery but compromises on other materials that are used. The tilted headrests that are used also limit the amount of space that is available for passengers in the backseat. The armrest is also not as sturdy and supportive compared to the car's predecessor.
