With gas prices rising, shouldn’t you choose efficiency? The Passat earns 25 mpg city and 36 mpg highway. The Camry does better, earning 29 mpg city and 41 mpg highway.

You might assume that the Camry is the weaker of the two cars since it gets better fuel economy. Actually, the Camry engine generates 203 horsepower while the Passat engine generates only 174 horsepower.

Volkswagen offers crash avoidance features, but it charges more for them. Camrys come with a whole suite of features to aid the driver. A forward collision warning and a pedestrian watch are paired up with an automatic brake system. A lane departure warning is paired with a lane assist to help correct the Camry’s trajectory. Camry drivers have adaptive cruise control to regulate speed even when the situation is slow and go. They also benefit from automatic high beams to regulate light in busy conditions.

The Camry earned the top spot at U.S. News and World Report. Furthermore, the magazine has named the sedan as the Best Midsized Car for Families and the Best Midsized Car for the Money.
