See How Hyundai Sonata Bests the Toyota Competition Here at Circle Hyundai in Shrewsbury, NJ

The market for new mid-size cars here in the busy northern coastal New Jersey area is at an all-time competitive high. The latest SUVs and crossovers are making quite the impression, so more automakers are fully loading their sedans with the cutting edge in features and tech. As a result, the gap between many vehicles and what they offer to stand out -- it's closing. And so, drivers are focusing more and more on those distinctions, no matter how subtle they are. They aren't understated, however, in the new Hyundai Sonata. Refreshed for the model year in everything from looks and comfort to safety and driver-assist features, creature comforts, and amenities, it continues to give well-traveled models in the segment like the new Toyota Camry a run for their money. How exactly does the new Sonata fare? The experts at Circle Hyundai have made it easy to tell. Here are just a handful of the ways it pulls ahead.

Hyundai Sonata vs Toyota Camry

  • For one, Sonata has received quite a few mid-year changes, represented in new trims from SEL+ and Sport+ to Limited 2.0T+ and Limited with Ultimate+. Similar improvements aren't the case, however, for Camry. Hyundai offers more features, variety, and choices, often for the same investment or less.
  • It's wider overall as well, and by track both front and rear, more evocative of the prominent stance of a mid-size sedan and better suggestive of its poised and balanced ride.
  • Sonata offers stronger engine displacement, 2359 cc to Camry's 2487, meaning a more confident and powerful-feeling drive.
  • With an 18.5-gallon fuel tank, larger than that of Camry at 14.5, Sonata makes for fewer stopovers to refuel between spots like West Long Branch and Red Bank.
  • It's approximately 6.0 cubic feet more capacious for passengers than Camry as well, with more front headroom, legroom, and shoulder room and better second-row hip room for the cruise out to Middletown, NJ.
  • Count on an edge in cargo space, too -- Sonata trunk space sprawls at approximately 2.0 cubic feet larger than Camry's trunk.
  • For connecting your smartphone and controlling it from the dash display, Sonata incorporates Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. They're available throughout the line, from the Sonata SE base to its top Limited 2.0T trim. You won't find either Apple or Android tech in Camry.
  • From the NHTSA, both models get five stars for withstanding a crash, and from the IIHS, both take home a 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK+ award. That's a highest "Good" rating across the board as well as a "Superior" front crash prevention rating. That's peace of mind you can depend on for you and your family, whether you're commuting to Asbury Park, navigating the Freehold area, or headed on adventures beyond.
  • Sonata is the more affordable option, with a total comparably equipped price of about $22,935. Toyota Camry demands around $24,565.
  • "America's Best Warranty" comes standard with the new Sonata. That's 60 months or 60,000 miles of basic coverage, 120 months or 100,000 miles on the car's powertrain, and 84 months of corrosion perforation coverage. You'll get from a new Camry only 36 months or 36,000 miles, 60 months or 60,000 miles, and 60 months respectively.

You can expect more where these advancements came from, too. Opt to purchase or lease a new Hyundai Sonata here in Shrewsbury, NJ, and you can look forward to a host of other standard and available features that stand apart from the rest, including:
