Passenger Space & Cargo Room


The Hyundai Sonata and the Toyota Camry both offer a smooth ride with seating for five passengers. The Hyundai gives everyone a little extra space to stretch out, though, with 104.4 cubic feet of passenger room. The Toyota is a bit smaller inside with 100.4 cubic feet of passenger space.

You'll feel the biggest difference behind the wheel. The Hyundai Sonata features 40 inches of front headroom and 46.1 inches of front legroom. On the flipside, the Toyota can feel a little cramped for taller drivers with 38.3 inches of front headroom and 42.1 inches of front legroom.

The Hyundai also gives you plenty of space for your golf bags and groceries with 16 cubic feet of cargo room in the trunk. The Toyota Camry can't carry as much cargo with only 14.1 cubic feet of trunk space.

Safety Features

When it comes to the Hyundai Sonata vs. Toyota Camry, the Hyundai Sonata is prepared to give you more peace of mind. That's why it comes with lots of standard drive-assistance features. They'll give you more awareness during your drive and help prevent accidents.

The standard Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection looks out for the road ahead, while Lane Keeping Assist will keep you from drifting out of your lane. You'll even have better visibility at night with High Beam Assist.

While these features monitor what's around you, the Driver Attention Warning focuses on how you're driving. If it detects any signs of drowsy or distracted driving, it will send you a reminder to focus on the road or take a break from driving.

The Toyota Camry also comes with a series of driver-assistance features. However, it doesn't offer anything that can analyze your driving habits, like the Driver Attention Warning in the Sonata.

Hyundai Sonata vs Toyota Camry: Infotainment System

The Sonata also includes technology that will make your drive more fun. It starts with an 8-inch touchscreen on top of the dashboard. It lets you stream music and make hands-free calls with Bluetooth®, plus you can sync your phone's apps through Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. A navigation system is also available on a larger 10.25-inch screen.

The Toyota Camry comes with all the same smartphone compatibility and offers a navigation system, but they're limited to a smaller 7-inch screen. While it does offer an 8-inch screen, it won't give you the same visibility as a 10.25-inch monitor.

The Hyundai also has a larger and clearer instrument cluster. It offers a 12.3-inch digital display in front of the steering wheel. The Toyota only has a 7-inch instrument cluster.
