Many Northern Alabama car buyers turn to Toyota for a reliable and safe vehicle that offers the latest in technology features — and if you’re eyeing a new sedan, that means comparing the 2021 Toyota Camry vs. 2021 Toyota Corolla. There’s not a wrong choice when you drive home one of these Toyota sedans, but there’s one that’s right for you and for your life in The Shoals.

Greenway Toyota of the Shoals is here to compare the Toyota Camry vs. Toyota Corolla to see which model is the one for you. Here’s a quick look at the strengths of each:

  • The Camry configurations have higher starting prices than the Corolla, but are still competitively priced (much like the 2020 Camry).
  • The Camry comes standard with a more powerful four-cylinder (with a V6 upgrade option)
  • The 2021 Corolla’s engine and size make it more efficient than the Camry — and more efficient than the 2020 Corolla was!
  • The 2021 Camry includes Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.5+, one of the first Toyotas with the safety suite. 
  • The 2021 Corolla comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 (TSS 2.0).

Camry vs. Corolla: Performance and Efficiency

Updates for the new model year include a new engine option for the Camry: Muscle Shoals and Tuscumbia drivers can choose from a 2.5L four-cylinder, a 3.5L V6, and a next-generation Toyota Hybrid System. Comparing the 2021 Camry to the Corolla, you’ll find different engine options, but still a trio: the Corolla can be had with a 1.8L four-cylinder, a 2.0L four-cylinder, 

2021 Toyota Camry

  • The 2.5L four-cylinder starting option provides 203 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque, earning a max of 39 highway and 28 city mpg (EPA-estimated).**
  • The larger 3.5L V6 is the most powerful option in this comparison. It generates 301 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque, with an EPA-estimated 33 highway mpg and 22 city mpg.**
  • Opting for the Toyota Hybrid System (THS II) engine doesn’t mean compromising on power — you’ll get a combined 208 hp and 163 lb-ft of torque and 53 highway / 51 city mpg.**

2021 Toyota Corolla

  • With a 1.8L four-cylinder engine, the Corolla gets 139 hp and generates 126 lb-ft of torque. You’ll have an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 30 mpg city, 38 mpg highway.**
  • With the new 2.0L four-cylinder engine, the Corolla is rated at 169 hp and 151 lb-ft of torque, earning an EPA-estimated 31 mpg city and 38 mpg highway.**
  • Corolla hybrid models deliver 121 hp and 105 lb-ft of torque, returning an EPA-estimated 53 mpg in the city and 52 mpg on the highway.**

Camry vs. Corolla: Interior Dimensions

If you’re eyeing key differences between Camry and Corolla, the dimensions are going to be one of your biggest deciding factors.

2021 Toyota Camry L

  • Passenger Volume: 100.4 cubic feet
  • Cargo Room: 15.1 cubic feet
  • Legroom (Front/Rear): 42.1 inches / 38.0 inches
  • Shoulder Room (Front/Rear): 57.7 inches / 55.7 inches
  • Hip Room (Front/Rear): 55.4 inches / 54.7 inches

2021 Toyota Corolla L 

  • Passenger Volume: 88.6 cubic feet
  • Cargo Room: 13.1 cubic feet
  • Legroom (Front/Rear): 42 inches / 34.8 inches
  • Shoulder Room (Front/Rear): 54 inches / 51.7 inches
  • Hip Room (Front/Rear): 53.9 inches / 51.3 inches

A significantly larger cabin and a more spacious trunk make the Camry a smarter choice for drivers in need of a family sedan or those who have kids making their way into junior high or high school. If efficiency is a top priority and you like a smaller car with a lower starting price, the 2021 Corolla might be your better choice.
