2018 Toyota Camry vs. 2018 Volkswagen Passat Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Toyota Camry than in the Volkswagen Passat, due to the Toyota Camry's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Toyota Camry and the Volkswagen Passat in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Toyota Camry as you will with the Volkswagen Passat, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 Toyota Camry is somewhat more expensive than the Volkswagen Passat. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Toyota Camry will cost more in transportation costs than the Volkswagen Passat.

Dimensions
The Toyota Camry is about the same width as the Volkswagen Passat. When looking at overall length, the Toyota Camry takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volkswagen Passat.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Toyota Camry and the Volkswagen Passat do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Toyota Camry has a larger turning radius than the Volkswagen Passat, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Toyota Camry is somewhat more powerful than the Volkswagen Passat.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Toyota Camry and the Volkswagen Passat. The Toyota Camry has less cargo capacity than the Volkswagen Passat, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Toyota Camry is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volkswagen Passat.
