2018 Toyota Camry vs. Its Competition

2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid

The 2018 Toyota Camry has big shoes to fill as U.S.

buyers move en masse from sedans to crossovers.

Its competitors are hardly standing still, with an all-new Honda Accord and a heavily revised Hyundai Sonata, neither of which we’ve tested yet.

The Ford Fusion remains one of the best-looking sedans on the market, with a handsome interior and both hybrid and plug-in hybrid options.

The latest Malibu is stylish, comfortable, and has a high-mileage hybrid model as well.

The aging Nissan Altima represents the value-for-money entries among mid-size sedans, and the Kia Optima may be the overlooked all-rounder; it’s stylish, well-equipped, and competitively priced.
