Overview Information

The Camry is Toyota's mid-sized sedan and a perennial top-seller. The Camry has a solid reputation for reliability that makes it an automatic choice for many buyers. Most families looking for a new car should start their search with a mid-sized sedan. These vehicles have seating for five passengers, large trunks, good fuel economy, and are priced less than most SUVs. The Camry is the embodiment of these traits with over 80 inches of combined legroom, 13.1 cubic feet of cargo volume in the trunk, and fuel economy of 25/35 (city/highway) for four cylinder models. Toyota offers the front-wheel-drive Camry in several trim levels with three powertrains. The Camry range starts with the LE model which includes basic power equipment and steel wheels with wheel covers. All grades equip a standard 2.5l four-cylinder engine paired with a six-speed automatic. A 3.5l V6 is available on the XSE and XLE and also adds additional packaged features. The Camry range also includes Toyota's famed hybrid system which is offered in LE, XSE and XLE grades. Hybrid models add about $3500 to the price, but substantially increase fuel economy to an EPA rated 43/39 (city/highway). With Camry prices ranging from $23,000-$32,000, comparison shoppers will find that there are more powerful, stylish or affordable choices in the segment. However, the Camry represents a good overall blend of the segments best traits and very few cars can equal the Camry's stellar reputation.
