You know what the toughest part about buying a new Toyota is? Having so many awesome choices to pick from. Take the sedan lineup – you have the option to pick between two best sellers in their categories, the 2014 Toyota Corolla and the 2014 Toyota Camry. But which is right for you? Check out Toyota of Killeen’s head to head comparison to scope out differences between the two.
For 2014, buyers have to choose not just which size car suits their lifestyle, but which personality is right for them. Both are 5-seater sedans, but they bring distinctly different offerings to the table. The Corolla is a compact car, with 182.6 inches in length and 42.3 inches of front legroom. The Camry rules the competition in the mid-size sedan segment, with a length of 189.2 inches and 41.6 inches of front leg room.
The Camry’s family friendly styling has been a long-time favorite for those who need their car to be perfect for trips, games, work, or well, anything life has to offer. Newly redesigned for 2014, the Corollas new exterior design is more sporty and edgy than anything we’ve seen from it before. Appealing to a typically younger crowd, it’s a sedan that fits in on the city streets.
Sure, they’re sedans, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t be fun to drive! The Toyota Corolla stacks all of its trims with a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine, which provides enough zip to be fun thanks to it’s smaller size and lighter weight. Coming in at 132 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque, it may not be a sports car, but it still manages to make even a trip to the grocery store a little more fun.
The Camry’s recent updates have been geared towards incorporating a bit more umph into the driving experience — just because you’ve got soccer practice doesn’t mean that you can’t take the fun roads to get there! Equipped with either a 2.5L I-4 or a 3.5L V6, there’s a Camry that’s designed to give you exactly the ride you want. With either 178 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque or 268 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque, you may just forget that you’re in a family sedan.
After being sold as a commuter car for decades, the Corolla has typically been sparse with the features and offerings. Making waves, the 2014 model has been packed with more standard features than it seems should be possible for the low price tag. Completely standard on the most basic Corolla is A/C with a dust and pollen filter, a tech audio package that comes with all of the standards plus 4 speakers, a USB 2.0 port, iPod connectivity, hands-free phone capability, 6-way adjustable seats, Bluetooth controls mounted on the steering wheel, power accessories, and a 12V auxiliary power outlet. The higher priced S trim delivers upgrades like automatic AC, an enhanced audio package with Entune Audio and a 6.1” display, an integrated backup camera with projected path, Softex trimmed seats, cruise control, a leather trimmed steering wheel, and a multifunction in-key remote keyless entry system.
The Camry has always had a strong offering in the standard features department, and the 2014 model proves to be no exception. The Camry L offers the same AC with air filter, a display audio system with 6.1” touch-screen, 6-way adjustable seats, cruise control, bluetooth integrated controls for steering wheel and power accessories. The top of the line XLE upgrades the options, bring in dual zone automatic climate control and rear seat vents, a multi-function in-key remote keyless entry system, 8-way adjustable seats, and a leather trimmed steering wheel with both bluetooth and audio controls integrated.
