The 2017 Toyota Camry inherits the mantle of the best-selling car in America. The 2017 Toyota Corolla inherits its own legacy, best-selling car in its class. When you look at the two side by side, there are some distinctions worth noting.

Performance and Fuel Economy

A lower curb weight and an aerodynamic build allow the Corolla to make more out of its horsepower. The 2017 Corolla offers a 132-horsepower four-cylinder engine with either a continuously variable transmission or an optional manual. The CVT earns 28 mpg city and 36 mpg highway. For even better gas mileage and more horsepower, many shoppers opt for the LE Eco. At peak efficiency, it can earn 33 mpg city and 40 mpg on the highway. Edmunds praises this car for its no-hassle commuting comfort.

The larger Camry doesn’t offer a manual transmission, relying strictly on automatic transmissions. The regular gas editions can’t match the Corolla LE Eco, but the hybrid exceeds its fuel economy for city driving. Of course, this bigger car needs a higher performing engine; therefore, the shopper is offered three choices. The base Camry edition has a 178-horsepower four cylinder engine.
