2018 Hyundai Sonata vs. 2018 Toyota Corolla Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Corolla than the Hyundai Sonata, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Hyundai Sonata will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Corolla.

Convenience
With the Hyundai Sonata you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Toyota Corolla, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Hyundai Sonata is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Corolla. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Hyundai Sonata and the Toyota Corolla have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Sonata is much wider than the Toyota Corolla, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Hyundai Sonata, which is slightly longer than the Toyota Corolla.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Hyundai Sonata does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Toyota Corolla.

Handling
The Hyundai Sonata has about the same turning radius as the Toyota Corolla, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Sonata has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Corolla. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Hyundai Sonata and the Toyota Corolla. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Hyundai Sonata will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Toyota Corolla.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Sonata than that of the Toyota Corolla.
