Toyota Camry 2001 sedan
Trim Shown: Sedan
The refined Camry ranks with the best family sedans on the market. The Camry rides quietly and compliantly and handles predictably. And while the steering feels too light at times, it responds quickly and precisely. The standard 2.2-liter, 136-hp Four feels a bit sluggish but delivers very good fuel economy.

Front seats are comfortable, and the rear seat is relatively roomy.
