The crowded midsize sedan segment has many great options. Two of them are the 2018 Volkswagen Passat and 2018 Toyota Camry. Savannah Volkswagen has put together this comparison to talk a bit about these two cars, so you have a better idea of how they handle Savannah, Richmond Hill, and Pooler. 

We invite you to learn more about the interior features, exterior technology, and performance, too. Continue reading to become a well-informed car buyer and make a great decision when it comes time to find your next vehicle.

Interior Comforts and Seating

Both of these sedans are roomy, but once you step inside each car, you'll be able to see the differences. The VW Passat has 42.4 inches of front legroom, along with 39.1 inches of rear legroom. The Camry is a bit tighter in the front with 42.1 inches of front legroom, while the rear offers just 38 inches. There's also more shoulder room in the back of the Passat, so it'll feel less cramped when using all three seats in the second row of this 5-seater.

The VW Passat also has the edge when it comes to trunk space, with 15.9 cu. ft., compared to the Camry, which offers 14.1 cu. ft. It certainly makes a difference when trying to fit in that extra suitcase or luggage on a trip. Staying comfortable inside is important, too. The dual-zone automatic climate control feature in the 2018 VW Passat comes standard. While the Toyota Camry has a similar feature, it is not a standard one.

What's Outside Matters, Too

These two sporty sedans have all of the necessary amenities for every trip. They both offer LED daytime running lights, power tilting/sliding sunroofs, and heated power outside mirrors. 

The rain-sensing windshield wipers on the VW Passat will activate automatically and change the speed of the wiper blades as necessary so your view is always clear. You'll also find an available hands-free foot-activated trunk feature, which will open the trunk when you swipe your foot under the rear bumper. While the Toyota Camry has many impressive convenient features, it doesn't offer these two.

Passat vs Camry Performance

Both vehicles come with solid engine options. The base edition of the Volkswagen Passat is a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, which offers outstanding acceleration and a powerful ride. The 2018 Camry is equipped with a 4-cylinder engine as well, but it's not turbocharged. 

Meanwhile, top trims of both the 2018 VW Passat and Camry feature a V6 engine with powerful acceleration and performance.
