As Salt Lake City enthusiasts can attest, Toyota makes some of the best sedans in the industry, with a range that goes from the affordable and efficient 2017 Toyota Camry to the high-end and stylish 2016 Toyota Avalon. But in your search for a new sedan, which of those two is the best fit for you? They both sport the high-quality engineering that Toyota is known for, but they’re designed with different sorts of drivers in mind. So come take a look at what these models have to offer, and see which best serves the kind of driver you are.

Performance and Efficiency

Unlike some commuter focused vehicles, these Toyota sedans have all the power you need for an exhilarating ride. Both the 2017 Toyota Camry and the 2016 Toyota Avalon offer a brawny 3.5L V6 engine that delivers an impressive 268 horsepower and 248 lb.-ft. of torque, making them more than capable of burning rubber on the road. Beyond that similarity, though, the two vehicles offer very different feels. The Camry is focused on the highway experience, with a bevy of features that make your ride smoother and more comfortable. Its aerodynamically designed exterior minimizes air drag, making the cabin experience quieter and maximizing efficiency, enabling the Camry to reach an EPA-estimated 33 MPG in the city. The Avalon is a sportier number altogether, a facet that’s immediately apparent in the racecar inspired wheel-mounted paddle shifters. The Avalon also offers a Sport Mode that ups the throttle response and tightens the Electric Power Steering, for when you need a little extra liveliness.

Interior and Features

Beyond the engines, these two Toyota sedans also sport lovely, comfortable interiors, with a bevy of features and sharp design touches tailored to their specific audiences. The 2017 Toyota Camry is all about tech and convenience: its 8-way power-adjustable heated driver’s seat and steering wheel-mounted controls make driving easy and intuitive, and the available JBL GreenEdge audio system offers rich, clear sound from ten speakers. On the other side, the 2016 Toyota Avalon dedicates itself to luxury accouterments and sharp style. Its lovingly crafted leather-trimmed seats come standard, and higher trims offer heating and cooling as well. The Avalon also has an available ambient lighting system, lending the cabin a soft atmosphere while highlighting features like cup holders and door handles for easier access in the dark. Both vehicles provide a smooth, quiet cabin experience and plenty of interior room, so no matter which you go for, you can rest assured that you and your passengers are in for a lovely and comfortable ride.
