2017 Toyota Camry vs. Its Competition

Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The mid-size segment is the most competitive for automakers and we think there is very good value in every competitor.

The Camry's biggest natural competitor is the 2017 Honda Accord, which we think is very good.

The Accord undercuts the Camry by around $100 in most trims and offers a coupe version.

The Ford Fusion has the Camry beat on looks (we think) but falls down on interior comfort.

The Subaru Legacy was our Best Car to Buy winner for 2015, but its standard all-wheel drive isn't necessary for many buyers.

The Nissan Altima and Hyundai Sonata are both remarkable in their efficiency, but both are becoming more pricey.

Quick Specs
The 2017 Toyota Camry is a comfortable commuter without much pretension; a very good appliance for car buyers who prefer substance over style.
The 2017 Ford Fusion blends enduring good looks, a wide variety of powertrains, impressive interior space and comfort along with all the latest electronic safety systems and a few design upgrades.
The 2017 Hyundai Sonata is a strong family-sedan value, with inconspicuous looks hiding top-notch safety and fuel economy.
The 2017 Nissan Altima remains a fine mainstream choice, but rivals with newer designs offer far more technology.
The safety and all-weather performance of the 2017 Subaru Legacy are convincing enough. Consider the roomy sedan's value at any trim and decent gas mileage, and it's no wonder it was our Best Car to Buy for 2015.
