2015 Toyota Camry vs. Its Competition

2015 Toyota Camry  -  First Drive, September 2014
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Deputy Editor

The Hyundai Sonata has good mileage ratings, performs well, and offers a lot of features for the money; it's been redesigned for 2015, although the new model goes in a conservative direction, design-wise, that no longer makes it the market standout it was.

The Kia Optima is built on the same platform, but feels a little sportier and looks a little more European.

The Honda Accord remains one of the most refined, upscale vehicles in the bunch, with option of either a four-cylinder or fuel-efficient V-6.

The Nissan Altima is more about comfort and value now than its sportier prior models.

There's also the Chevrolet Malibu, but its interior just isn't quite as spacious.

Out of them all, it's the Ford Fusion that feels like a legitimate premium sedan, though–especially with either of the two EcoBoost engines.
