2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid vs. 2016 Volkswagen Passat Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Toyota Camry Hybrid 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 Hybrid and the Volkswagen Passat in the front seats.

Convenience
The Volkswagen Passat requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Toyota Camry Hybrid, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Hybrid 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 Hybrid will cost more in transportation costs than the Volkswagen Passat.

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

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Toyota Camry Hybrid doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volkswagen Passat.

Performance
The Toyota Camry Hybrid has less horsepower than the Volkswagen Passat, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Toyota Camry Hybrid and the Volkswagen Passat. The Toyota Camry Hybrid has significantly less cargo room than the Volkswagen Passat, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

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