Which is better: Toyota Camry or Hyundai Elantra?

A midsize sedan like Hyundai Elantra is perfect for an everyday vehicle in Riyadh .On the other hand, if you are looking for something sportier and fun, then Toyota Camry is your pick.

Toyota Camry
In 2017, the Toyota Camry was the best-selling vehicle in Saudi Arabia. Let’s see what the more recent 2020 model has to offer. The latest version has a 2.5-­ litre A25A-­FXS engine that delivers high combustion efficiency and high power output. It has an evolved electrified hybrid system to generate outstanding acceleration and power, delivering dynamic performance and exceptional fuel efficiency to enhance your driving pleasure.

Over the years, Toyota has continuously developed Camry’s engine to ensure the best performance and fuel efficiency, while guaranteeing a drive with character. The latest Variable Valve Technology improves engine performance and comes as standard.

Mechanical improvements are also made to Elantra’s suspension to increase stiffness for a gripping performance. It is aided by 18-inch alloy wheels, multi-link independent rear suspension and larger front brake rotors.

A comparative overview:
In terms of convenience, with the Toyota Camry, you will be making less frequent stops at the gas station as it offers better mileage and fuel efficiency than with the Hyundai Elantra, due to its tank size.

There are many factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. One of the significant aspects is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). In this reference, the Hyundai Elantra is a better financial choice over the Toyota Camry. Apart from this, one should also consider the Destination Charge, a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it’s built. But both the vehicles rank the same on this.

Coming to the performance, the first thing that comes to the mind is the horsepower, which is basically a tie between the Hyundai Elantra and the Toyota Camry.

Comfortable seating is paramount and in this reference, you’ll fit the same number of people in both the Hyundai Elantra and the Toyota Camry. But the Camry offers more room – legspace, headspace and seat-width.

Though you’ll have better peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Elantra than that of the Toyota Camry — you cannot deny that the Toyota reliability is a clear winner! The price for Hyundai Elantra is approximately SAR 66,165 to SAR 74,690, depending on the model. The cost for the Toyota Camry 2020 is about 96,370 SAR to 107,295 SAR approximately.
