2014 Toyota Camry vs. Its Competition

2014 Toyota Camry
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Deputy Editor

The competition is steep in the mid-size sedan market.

The Hyundai Sonata gets great gas mileage, performs well, and offers a lot of features for the money.

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

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

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 as the others.

Quick Specs
The 2014 Toyota Camry may not be as attractive as some of its competitors, but it's now more than ever the most sensible choice for shoppers focused on value, frugality and comfort above all else.
Chevy has taken a look elsewhere in its lineup, and in the market, and made the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu a stronger offering--with an emphasis on better gas mileage and more space.
The 2014 Ford Fusion has stunning good looks, satisfying performance, and top-notch safety and fuel economy--all without skimping on the interior space and ride comfort that really means something to mid-size sedan shoppers.
The 2014 Hyundai Sonata remains one of the best buys among mid-size sedans--although with so many much-improved rival models, it's no longer such a standout.
Following improvements that hit all the right spots, the 2014 Nissan Altima is a solid choice for those who don't mind a CVT.
The 2013 Honda Accord is one of America's best, most sensible sedans, even if it hasn't changed radically.
