Toyota Sedan Models
Toyota sedans are some of the most popular on the planet for several very good reasons. Toyota’s legendary reliability, unsurpassed value for money, and genuinely enjoyable driving dynamics make for a winning combination, and it’s clear why Toyota continues to build sedans when several less successful manufacturers have given up. There is a lot to love about Toyota’s sedan lineup, so we’re going to take a closer look here.

The Corolla is the worldwide best-selling automotive nameplate of all time, thanks to its unmatched reliability, practicality, and the versatility to work well in any environment. Available with a standard truck or hatchback, front- or all-wheel drive, and with either a standard gasoline engine or hybrid drivetrain, the Corolla gives you a lot of configuration options. In fact, there is even the option of the 300-horsepower track-ready GR Corolla, a serious performance machine based on this reliable daily driver. The Corolla is the smallest of the Toyota sedan lineup, making it a great choice for city dwellers or anyone else who might have to squeeze into a tiny parking spot with any regularity. It’s also one of the most affordable all-wheel drive vehicles on the market, and is available with both a hybrid drivetrain and AWD, two features that some manufacturers will make you choose between.
- Starting at $27,950 MSRP
- Hybrid drivetrain producing 194 horsepower and 139 lb-ft of torque
- Available all-wheel drive
- Toyota Safety Sense™ 3.0 (TSS 3.0)
The Prius was the car that first popularized hybrid technology, and it’s still going strong today. The Prius has become more powerful, more fun to drive, and boasts more attractive styling than ever before, but the efficiency that made it popular in the first place is unchanged. In fact, Toyota now makes the Prius Prime, a plug-in hybrid version of the Prius that gives you even more fuel economy. And the addition of available all-wheel drive means that it’s better in the snow than previous incarnations as well. Though they are both classified as compacts, the Prius is slightly larger than the Corolla. Not enough that it will impact your ability to park it in tight spaces, but enough that your passengers will probably appreciate it. The hatchback design provides great cargo space as well, and an available fixed glass roof fills the cabin with natural light.
- Starting at $26,420 MSRP
- 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque, available hybrid drivetrain with 208 horsepower and 163 lb-ft of torque, or available 3.5-liter V6 with 301 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque
- Available premium stereo with nine JBL® speakers including subwoofer and amplifier, Android Auto™ & Apple CarPlay® compatibility
- Standard all-LED exterior lighting
The Corolla might be the most popular car worldwide, but the Camry is the most popular sedan in the US, and has been for a couple of decades. It’s not difficult to see why either, the Camry offers both a hybrid drivetrain and an available V6, an increasingly rare option in the midsize segment, unless you’re looking at vehicles costing double the price of the Camry. There is even a sporty Toyota Racing Development trim, with a standard V6, 19-inch wheels, sport dual exhaust, and other touches to give the Camry some extra excitement. As a midsize sedan, the Camry is noticeably bigger than the Corolla and Prius, both inside and out, including the trunk. But despite this extra size, the hybrid drivetrain returns fuel economy numbers nearly identical to those of the Prius. Midsize sedans are made to be incredibly versatile, and the Camry remains the most popular of them all because it can handle whatever you throw at it.
- Starting at $40,350 MSRP
- Hybrid drivetrain with 236 horsepower and 163 lb-ft of torque, or available Hybrid MAX drivetrain with 340 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque
- Standard 8-way power-adjustable heated driver and passenger seats
- Standard 12.3-in. Toyota Audio Multimedia screen
The largest of Toyota’s sedan lineup, the Crown rivals Lexus with its luxury interior, and serves as a showcase for some of the latest tech in Toyota’s toolbox. All-wheel drive comes standard, as does a hybrid drivetrain. You do have a choice of two different hybrid options though, with the more powerful of the two coming in with an impressive 340 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque, while still delivering a 30 mpg combined fuel economy rating. The 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen that is optional on several Toyota models is standard on the Crown, and there is an available 11-speaker JBL® premium stereo that makes whatever you’re listening to sound amazing. Heated front seats are standard, with optional equipment including heated back seats, ventilation for the front seats, and a heated steering wheel.
