"Camry’s interior fits your needs and feeds your desires with pleasing finishes and textures. It meticulously blends colors and materials."
Midsize sedans are a popular choice for individuals and families who want plenty of space, stylish interiors, and modern features without the expense of an SUV or minivan. If you're currently shopping for a vehicle in this segment and live in the Greenvale, NY area, here's what you need to know about how the 2018 Toyota Camry, fully redesigned for 2018 and named as the best midsize car by U.S. News and World Report, stacks up to the 2018 Subaru Legacy, which has also received styling updates.
The 2018 Camry is built on an all-new platform that features a lower center of gravity for better fuel efficiency. You'll notice a longer wheelbase and a lower dashboard, hood, and cowl that create an aggressively stylish countenance. Outward visibility is also improved. The redesigned Camry comes in four trims, and the SE and XSE models have a sportier body style with upgraded 19-inch wheels.
The 2018 Legacy is wagon-inspired, constructed on the same platform as the Subaru Outback. Exterior updates this year include a slightly revised lower grille and responsive LED headlights.
Camry drivers can choose between a four-cylinder engine that provides 203 horsepower and a V6 that gets 301 horses. The base engine is one of the most fuel-efficient powertrains in this class, getting an EPA-estimated 28 city/39 highway miles per gallon (22/32 mpg with the V6). Both are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, which is equipped with paddle shifters on the sport models. New York drivers will love saving money on fuel both in and out of the city.
The Legacy comes with either a 175-hp four-cylinder engine or a 256-hp V6. These powertrains get 25/34 and 22/28 city/highway miles per gallon respectively. Both come with a continuously variable transmission (CVT), which operates like an automatic, and all-wheel drive.
The 2018 Toyota Camry's redesigned interior features high-quality materials and a comfortable, spacious cabin. Six-way adjustable front seats are standard in all trims. You'll get 15.1 cubic feet of trunk space in all but the base model, which has 14.1 cubic feet. While the Legacy also features a modern, comfortable interior, it's much more utilitarian. It has 15 feet of cargo space in all models.
One of the biggest changes for the 2018 Toyota Camry is the inclusion of active driver assistance features across the lineup. These include a rearview camera, lane departure warning with steering assistance, a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high beams. The Legacy includes these features only as options on upper trims. While both vehicles have Top Safety Pick designation from the Insurance Institute on Highway Safety, only the Camry has a five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration.
All Camry models feature a 7-inch touchscreen Entune infotainment system with Siri Eyes Free and Google voice controls, USB and Bluetooth connectivity, smartphone integration, turn-by-turn navigation, and a six-speaker stereo. The Subaru Legacy is similarly equipped, but with a smaller touchscreen.
