Toyota Corolla vs Toyota Camry

If you want safety, reliability, and fuel efficiency in a smaller sedan, the Toyota Corolla and Toyota Camry each make for a savvy choice. These two models sit next to each other in the Toyota lineup, with the Camry being modestly larger than the Corolla.

The exact size differences between the Toyota Corolla vs. Toyota Camry as well as differences in performance specifications are what we’ll be detailing in this comparison.

Really, though, choosing either model will make for enjoyable cruising near Worcester, Auburn, and Shrewsbury, MA. So, if you want to test drive them in succession, come to Harr Toyota!

Camry vs Corolla: Interior and Exterior Size

The interior and exterior sizes of the Toyota Corolla and Toyota Camry aren’t far apart, yet a few inches here and there significantly alter the driving experience. So, if you want a car as compact as possible, it’s the Corolla. But if you prefer a smidge more space, the Camry makes sense.

The overall length of the Corolla measures 182.3 inches, while the wheelbase measures 106.3 inches. By comparison, the overall length of the Camry measures 192.1 inches with the wheelbase checking in at 111.2 inches. These measurements influence cargo space as you might imagine, with the Corolla offering 13.1 cubic feet of storage in the trunk compared to 15.1 cubic feet in the Camry.

Total passenger volume is also influenced by the length, as the Corolla measures 88.6 cubic feet and the Camry measures as much as 100.4 cubic feet.

The interior passenger room has some overlaps in the front row, such as 42 inches of legroom for the Corolla and 42.1 inches for the Camry. It’s the second row that sees a divide, with the Camry offering 38 inches of legroom compared to the 34.8 inches in the Corolla.
