Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Camry than the Toyota Corolla, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Toyota Corolla 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 Toyota Corolla, 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). Based on MSRP, the Toyota Corolla is clearly a better financial choice over the Toyota Camry. 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 Corolla and the Toyota Camry have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Toyota Corolla 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 Toyota Corolla, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Toyota Camry.

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

Handling
The Toyota Corolla 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 Toyota Corolla is significantly less powerful than the Toyota Camry. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

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

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