2016 Toyota Camry vs. Its Competition

2016 Toyota Camry Special Edition
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

The Toyota Camry's competition is some of the stiffest on the market.

The Honda Accord remains one of the most refined, upscale vehicles in the bunch, with the choice of either a four-cylinder or a fuel-efficient V-6 (the hybrid is on hiatus).

The Hyundai Sonata has good mileage ratings, 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 and looks a little more European.

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

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.
