Top Tips for Choosing a Camry vs. a Corolla at Your Baltimore, MD, Toyota Dealership

Are you considering purchasing a new or used Toyota as your next ride? If it’s your first Toyota vehicle, congratulations on joining the Toyota family, and if you’re replacing your current Toyota, thank you for sharing our loyalty and commitment to these excellent vehicles. We’d love to help you find the perfect model for your budget and lifestyle. We find that customers frequently compare the Camry and Corolla models for a small sedan-style car to drive around town. To help, we put together a quick reference guide, but remember, you can always call us or visit our showroom at any time for a test drive and personalized assistance.

Camry and Corolla car facts

Choosing a Toyota for your lifestyle

Between these two popular models, your lifestyle will help you make the best choice. The Camry is a slightly larger car with all the fuel savings that come from a hybrid vehicle, although the MSRP is significantly higher than normal gas-engine cars. Meanwhile, the less-expensive Corolla is slightly smaller with a 1.8-liter, 4-cylinder engine that outputs 132 horsepower. If you care about switching from gas to hybrid engines for the environment or want a few more inches of interior legroom, then the Camry is a great choice. The fuel savings and space for five passengers also makes it a good option for longer family road trips.

Although the MSRP is higher up front, at Jerry’s Toyota, we offer great deals and rebates below MSRP as well as affordable financing options—not to mention your monthly savings at the fuel pump each month running on over 50 miles to the gallon!

Meanwhile, for customers planning to do small commutes and trips around town, the Corolla is an easy and affordable option that still comes with many of the same standard amenities as the more expensive Camry without the price tag. Inside, you can enjoy the Entune® 3.0 Plus infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth technology, wireless smartphone charging, a rearview camera with dynamic guidelines, and dual-zone climate control. Both models are available in a range of classic Toyota colors, and the Corolla has especially smooth lines thanks to a curved grille and limited contouring.

The number-one priority for most customers choosing a new car is, of course, safety. Fortunately, you don’t have to let this dictate your decision, because both the 2019 Camry and Corolla are crash-tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The Camry has a perfect five-star score overall and in each of the categories for front and side impacts. The Corolla has a four-star rating overall, including five stars for frontal driver impact and side crashes involving barriers or poles on both driver and passenger sides.

Now that you know the basics, it’s time for a test drive at Jerry’s Toyota!
