Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Camry than the Subaru WRX, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Subaru WRX and the Toyota Camry in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Toyota Camry you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Subaru WRX, 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). Whether you pick the Subaru WRX or the Toyota Camry, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Subaru WRX carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Toyota Camry.

Dimensions
Since the Subaru WRX is much slimmer than the Toyota Camry, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Subaru WRX, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Toyota Camry.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Subaru WRX does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Toyota Camry.

Handling
The Subaru WRX has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota Camry, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

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

Warranty
The Subaru WRX comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Camry.
