As two of the more prominent midsize sedans available, the 2019 Toyota Camry and 2019 Hyundai Sonata do have a few basic elements in common. Both sedans offer seating options for five passengers and both have access to outside digital devices. On the Toyota side of the equation, the automaker has introduced compatibility with the Apple CarPlay™ suite and the Amazon Alexa digital home assistant. By being able to work with Alexa, a Camry owner will be able to send driving directions from their living room to their vehicle and even turn on lights in the house. The Hyundai Sonata doesn’t offer this capability. Finally, the 2019 Camry offers the Toyota Safety Sense suite of technology on every trim grade. Hyundai requires buyers to move up a few trims to match this capability.
Colonial Toyota customers will have a pair of power plants to consider, depending on which trim grade of the 2019 Camry they choose to take home from our showroom. The base option is a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine attached to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Most trims are tuned to produce 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. The XSE model with this engine will produce a bit more power. Potential buyers of the 2019 Camry with the 3.5-liter, V-6 engine will also get the eight-speed automatic gear changer as well as a peak performance output of 301 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque. Hyundai Sonata owners can choose from a couple of four-cylinder engine options, including one that is turbocharged. The Sonata’s base engine makes 178 horsepower and the turbocharged engine produces 245 horsepower.
