Storage spaces in the cabins of both cars are plenty. There are substantially sized glove compartments, cup holders, door bins as well as storage spaces under the front armrests. The i45's boot, at 463 litres is more voluminous than the 425 litre Camry trunk.

The 2.4 Camry gets a long list of equipment as standard. It gets automatic Xenon headlamps, fog lamps, dual-zone climate control system, trip computer, electrically adjustable front seats, a navigation head unit, VSC, traction control, ABS and many more. The 2.4-litre i45 gets more kit than the 2-litre base model but doesn't have the Camry's sat nav as standard.

Live with the Camry for a few days and you'll fathom why it is the most popular large saloon model out there. It offers an all-round package that is certainly hard to beat, so hard that even the fresher, impressive and more affordable i45 just can't surpass. The Hyundai runs the Camry pretty close in most areas at a cheaper price but the Toyota offers a more refined package, a rather important factor in this competitive class.
