Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Toyota Camry Hybrid than in the Volkswagen Passat, due to the Toyota Camry Hybrid's smaller rear head- and legroom. 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

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 Hybrid 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 Hybrid and the Volkswagen Passat have similar Destination Charges.
