To find the car that matches your driving style, follow along with Shottenkirk Toyota of Granbury to compare the difference between the Camry and Corolla.

Toyota Camry vs. Toyota Corolla: Performance & Fuel Economy

Consider the performance you need on Stephenville roads. When comparing the differences between the Camry and Corolla, the new Camry can come equipped with either a four-cylinder or six-cylinder engine, while the Corolla only showcases two four-cylinder engines. For more efficient performance in the city, the Corolla is the better choice, however, the heavier Camry might be the right choice if you often find yourself traveling on the highways around town. Let’s take a look at the engine specs: 

2021 Toyota Camry

  • The standard 2.5L four-cylinder engine generates 203 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. The base-level trim earns an EPA-estimated 28 mpg city, 39 mpg highway.
  • The more powerful performance can be found with the larger 3.5L V6 option. It generates 301 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque, while offering 22 mpg city and 32 mpg highway.

2021 Toyota Corolla
