2019 Volkswagen Arteon vs 2019 Toyota Camry

Serving Farmington Hills, MI

When it comes to driving a comfortable midsize sedan, the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon and the 2019 Toyota Camry are top models worth considering. Both vehicles are designed to be competitive with their advanced technology and upscale interiors. If you want to determine which car will be the right choice, there are are a few features to evaluate between both models.

Exterior Features

The sleek, sporty exterior of the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon is hard to miss. LED headlights are one of the main benefits of the new design, which increase visibility on the road and add an upscale touch to the body. 18-inch aluminum wheels come standard on the car and look sleek with the sporty body of the model. The wide chrome grille is one of the main focal points on the exterior, along with the frameless side windows, a rear-deck spoiler, chrome window surrounds, and dual trapezoidal exhaust tips. The unique and advanced features on the vehicle prove that the Arteon is more cutting-edge and innovative than other cars in its class.

The exterior of the Camry is sporty and sharp with dark-tinted LED headlights and taillights that look bold for a sedan and are a twist on the traditional look of the model. 19-inch black machined wheels and a black gloss grille create a fierce exterior that is trendy but may be too aggressive for some drivers compared to the contemporary design of the Arteon that is less flashy and more minimal.

Performance

One of the main highlights of the new Arteon's performance is its automatic adaptive suspension damping that provides a smooth ride. Front-wheel-drive comes standard on the car, in addition to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Navigation data can also be projected for the driver to improve the drive while taking different routes.

The same powertrains from the 2018 Camry can be found in the 2019 model, along with a 2.5-liter I-4 engine that generates 203 horsepower. The car doesn't accelerate as quickly or have as much power as the Arteon, which can be problematic for those who want a vehicle that feels sporty. The fuel efficiency is also average for its class with 22 mg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.

Interior Features

The 2019 Volkswagen Arteon has an upscale interior with a significant amount of premium materials that are present in the cabin. There's a high level of quality in the car due to the Volkswagen Digital Cockpit, a panoramic sunroof, a massaging driver's seat, and ambient lighting that creates a cozy setting. Optional features that can be included are blind spot monitor with rear traffic alert, autonomous emergency braking, a rearview camera, park distance control, an overhead view camera, a reactive hood, and an automatic post-collision braking system. Heated sport front seats and leatherette seating surfaces, keyless access, ventilated front seats, driver's memory settings, an eight-inch touchscreen, and smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink are also offered.

The same infotainment systems that come standard in the 2018 Toyota Camry can also be found in the 2019 Camry with a seven-inch touchscreen that is available. A Wi-Fi hotspot, a wireless charging pad, and a JBL audio system are also included for added convenience and entertainment while on the go. Fewer features come standard or are as advanced as what can be found on the VW Arteon.
