Over the years, the Volkswagen Passat and Toyota Camry have been two of the top midsize sedans out on the roads. Now, they continue to offer a great balance of performance and space, along with even more modern features for a fun and comfortable commute around Newton, Hackettstown, and Sparta.

Which car is right for you? Our Volkswagen World of Newton team wants to help you answer that question, which starts with learning more about the Volkswagen Passat vs. Toyota Camry below.

Safety Technology

Within each car, there are advanced systems at work that constantly scan your surroundings in order to keep you alert and out of harm's way. The 2020 Volkswagen Passat is the only of the two cars to feature Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Traffic Alert as standard features, though.

These features are able to detect for any oncoming cars approaching from the side or behind the VW Passat, so you can safely make lane changes and reverse out of parking spots. There are also other features, like available Park Distance Control and Parking Steering Assist, that will help the Volkswagen Passat maneuver in and out of a parallel or perpendicular parking space. The Camry doesn't offer any similar technology to help while parking.

Space Inside the VW Passat vs Camry

While both models are pretty spacious sedans, you'll be afforded a little extra room inside the 2020 Volkswagen Passat. Within its cabin, there is 102 cubic feet of passenger volume. The 2020 Camry has 100.4 cubic feet of passenger volume.

With that extra passenger volume, you and your passengers will get to enjoy more legroom inside the VW Passat. On top of cabin space, each car also has a spacious trunk to store items and carry various gear along for the ride. The Toyota Camry has 14.1 cubic feet of cargo volume inside its trunk. Fit even more in the trunk of the Volkswagen Passat, which has 15.9 cubic feet of cargo volume.

Volkswagen Passat vs Toyota Camry: Added Convenience

Each of these cars also have various features you can get that make your drive more comfortable and provide added convenience to your life. They each have available dual-zone automatic climate control systems and power-adjustable drivers' seats.

The Volkswagen Passat even has the available hands-free Easy Open trunk. When your hands are full of grocery bags, you won't have to set them down and fish out your keys from your pocket in order to pop open the trunk. With this, just wave your foot under the bumper and watch the trunk automatically open.

The 2020 VW Passat also offers the available rain-sensing windshield wipers. This means the VW Passat can detect when it starts to rain and automatically turn on the wipers, so your visibility stays clear. The 2020 Toyota Camry doesn't offer either of these features.
