2015 Toyota Camry vs. 2015 Volkswagen Passat Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Toyota Camry offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Volkswagen Passat with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. 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
With the Volkswagen Passat you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Toyota Camry, due to its tank size and 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Toyota Camry will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 and the Volkswagen Passat have similar Destination Charges.

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
The Toyota Camry has much less torque than the Volkswagen Passat, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Toyota Camry as you will in the Volkswagen Passat.

Warranty
The Toyota Camry comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volkswagen Passat.
