The success and popularity of the Toyota Camry almost exists in a vacuum. Regardless of what the rest of the industry is up to, Toyota continues to ensure that its midsize sedan is always at the top of its class. A comparison of the 2019 Toyota Camry vs. 2019 Mazda6 is a very clear illustration of these efforts. For the current model year, the automaker has made a few connectivity upgrades that will solidify its position in the class for several more years. The 2019 Camry demonstrates several important advantages over its Mazda rival, including performance and cargo space in addition to available technology options. Customers can schedule a test drive with the 2019 Toyota Camry at Colonial Toyota today by calling, 203-403-6890.
Connectivity technology is a must-have feature for any vehicle to be successful in the 21st century. Every available trim grade for the 2019 Toyota Camry is outfitted with the latest infotainment system the automaker has to offer. It is compatible with the Apple CarPlay™ suite of applications as well as the Amazon Alexa digital home assistant. Mazda has finally made its midsize sedan compatible with smartphone apps, but the capability is not universally available across the Mazda6’s lineup. Furthermore, Toyota has taken the important step of making a high-speed 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot an option for buyers who take any of the five primary trim grades home. Not only can up to five devices be connected simultaneously, but Mazda does not have this capability.
Toyota has maintained the same powertrains that were introduced with the redesign of the Camry. The standard setup is comprised of a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine making 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. Customers can also choose an available 3.5-liter, V-6 engine that will make 301 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque. Both engines will be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Both of these powertrains are able to easily and convincingly outperform the corresponding equipment used by the 2019 Mazda6. All versions of the 2019 Mazda6 use a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine. The lower trims are naturally aspirated and will produce 187 horsepower and 186 pound-feet of torque. Higher options add a turbocharger which will push the output to 227 horsepower.
