Toyota Camry 2018 sedan Trim Shown: 2018 LE sedan FWD Automatic
  • Road Test
  • Predicted Reliability
  • Predicted Owner Satisfaction
The redesigned Camry brings snazzier styling and slightly more nimble handling while retaining its comfortable, quiet demeanor. It again stands as one of the best midsized sedans. The lower stance makes access a bit more difficult, and the rear seat has lost some roominess. The standard 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine provides ample power and gets an impressive 32 mpg overall. A 3.5-liter V6 is also available. Both are paired to a new eight-speed automatic transmission that isn't supersmooth. A very frugal hybrid LE gets 47 mpg overall without any sacrifice in trunk space. The Entune infotainment system is capable but lacks Android Auto or Apple CarPlay compatibility. Standard safety equipment includes forward-collision warning and automatic emergency braking, but blind-spot warning is optional.

2012-2017
2012 Redesign Year
Toyota Camry 2017 Trim Shown: 2017 LE/XLE
The 2012 to 2016 Camry is a wise used car choice. Among other things, this vintage benefits from improved interior quality. It also retains Camry hallmarks of generous room and a comfortable ride. Good performance and competitive fuel economy remain as well. A more modern touchscreen infotainment system was introduced with this generation of the car. Handling is pleasant and secure, but not sporty -- even if you get the SE version. The hybrid got an impressive 38 mpg in our tests, but even the optional V6 engine is surprisingly fuel-efficient. A freshening for the 2015 model year introduced nicer styling details and an easier to use touchscreen. The revisions also made the ride steadier, enhanced noise isolation and improved crash test results.

2007-2011
2007 Redesign Year
Toyota Camry 2011 Trim Shown: 2011 Base
The 2007-2011 Camry continues as a practical and comfortable mid-sized sedan. This vintage brought mildly better handling and more modern connectivity including Bluetooth phone pairing. A hybrid version that returned 34 mpg overall in our testing was also introduced. The 3.5-liter V6 got 23 mpg overall, as opposed to the 24 mpg our four-cylinder yielded. If you can find a 2010 or newer four-cylinder example, you'll benefit from the addition of a six-speed automatic transmission which improved fuel economy to 26 mpg overall. Stability control also became standard in this year.

2002-2006
2002 Redesign Year
Toyota Camry 2006 Trim Shown: 2006 Sedan
The Camry's 2002 to 2006 design upholds the model's reputation as a roomy, easy to drive car with a smooth powertrain, comfortable ride and quiet interior. Most versions have a four-cylinder engine, which is quite sufficient. High-end samples come with a V6 engine, which is slick and powerful, but sacrifices some fuel economy. Look for examples with the optional curtain airbags noted on the headliner. Without them, this generation of the Camry received a poor rating in the IIHS side-crash test. High-end models may also have optional stability control, one of the first mid-sized sedans to offer this safety feature.

1997-2001
Toyota Camry 2001 Trim Shown: 2001 Sedan
The refined Camry has long been one of our top choices among family sedans. Predictable handling, good brakes, a smooth, quiet ride, and excellent reliability remain Camry hallmarks. Redesigned for 1997, the Camry only marginally improved over the well-regarded previous generation. The 2.2-liter four-cylinder is somewhat sluggish, but the 3.0-liter V6 is smooth and energetic. The front seats are comfortable, and the rear is relatively roomy. The steering feels light but is fairly quick.
