Year after year, the Toyota Camry has a target on its back. It’s America’s best-selling mid-size sedan, long renowned as an excellent family car. And this year, Toyota cycled back to make it even better, updating the 2021 Camry with more sophisticated safety features and a newly available 9-inch infotainment touchscreen.
Still, the Camry faces a tough challenger in the 2021 Hyundai Sonata. The Sonata received a dramatic redesign for 2020, which introduced a striking exterior, a posher interior, and an upgraded powertrain lineup. And it keeps the brand’s famously low pricing. To see which is the better mid-size sedan, we tested both the Camry and Sonata so we could compare them across eight categories and name an overall winner.
