2016 Toyota Camry vs 2016 Toyota Corolla
Over the course of your daily drives, you’ve probably spotted a Toyota Camry or Corolla on the road, but just in passing, you probably haven’t been able to tell too much of a difference. And unless you have ever been the passenger or driver inside of one, you wouldn’t have an idea of what the interior layout and performance is like. To help give you a virtual comparison of the 2016 Toyota Camry vs 2016 Toyota Corolla, we have identified a few of the major similarities and differences between the two.
Size Difference Between Camry and Corolla
While they both are sedans, the midsize Toyota Camry is couple of inches longer and wider than the compact Corolla. Passenger space isn’t by any means more confined or cramped in the compact Corolla; in fact, front and rear seat passenger leg and headroom is neck-and-neck in between these vehicles.
Where the additional space in the Camry is found, is cargo space. With all of the seats in place, the 2016 Toyota Camry provides 15.4 cu.ft. in comparison to the Corolla’s 13.0 cu.ft. Both Toyota sedans are able to comfortably accommodate five passengers, but depending on how much cargo space is necessary, size could make a difference. (Both Toyota sedans are actually respected for their abundant rear legroom compared to competing brands.)
