A few notable differences and similarities between the Corolla and Camry:
- The Camry configurations starting prices are higher.
- The Camry’s standard engine is stronger, and it offers a more powerful V6, too. However, the 2020 Corolla is even more efficient than it was in 2019.
- The Camry offers more cargo space.
- The 2019 Camry includes Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS P), while the 2020 Corolla comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 (TSS 2.0).
Performance and Efficiency
The 2019 Toyota Corolla is available with a four- or six-cylinder engine, in comparison to the Corolla’s two different four-cylinder options. The new Toyota Corolla is the more economical sedan for city driving, while the heavier Camry does better on the highway. Compare their engine specs below:
- The 2.5L 4-cylinder engine produces 203 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. In most configurations, this trim provides fuel economy figures of 29 mpg city, 41 mpg highway.
- The larger 3.5L V6 is the strongest option for Kennesaw drivers. It generates 301 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque, and an EPA-estimated 22 mpg city and 32 mpg highway**.
- With a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine, the Corolla delivers 139 hp and 126 lb-ft of torque. It offers fuel economy numbers of 30 mpg city and 38 mpg highway.
- With the new 2.0L 4-cylinder engine, the Corolla delivers 169 hp and 151 lb-ft of torque. With a continuously variable transmission, the XSE trim gets 31 mpg city and 40 mpg highway**.
Before, if drivers wanted a hybrid vehicle, they would have to choose the Camry over the Corolla. However, this will all change with the new year when Corolla introduces its first hybrid ever!
Choosing the Right Interior for Your Drives
The interior size is where you start to see significant differences between the Toyota Camry and Corolla. While the Corolla is significantly smaller than the Camry, both sedans offer something great. You will have to decide which fits your driving needs the best. Here is a look at both the interior dimensions of the Camry and Corolla:
- Passenger Volume: 100.4 cubic feet
- Cargo Room: 14.1 cubic feet in the base trim, 15.1 cubic feet in every other
- Legroom (Front/Rear): 42.1 inches/38 inches
- Shoulder Room (Front/Rear): 57.7 inches/55.7 inches
- Hip Room (Front/Rear): 55.4 inches/54.7 inches
- Passenger Volume: 88.6 cubic feet
- Cargo Room: 13 cubic feet
- Legroom (Front/Rear): 42.3 inches/41.4 inches
- Shoulder Room (Front/Rear): 54.8 inches/54.8 inches
- Hip Room (Front/Rear): 53 inches/43.9 inches
A larger cabin with a more spacious trunk makes the Camry a great option for growing families. However, the 2020 Corolla interior offers more rear legroom than the Camry.
