Toyota Camry 2013 sedan
Trim Shown: SE
This Camry is refined, comfortable, and roomy. Handling is now more responsive, and the interior is nicer, with upgraded materials. The three impressive powertrain choices are the base 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine; a 3.5-liter V6; and the Hybrid, which gets an amazing 38 mpg overall. The four-cylinder engine returned an excellent 27 mpg overall in our tests. The V6 version is very quick and delivers 26 mpg overall. Drawbacks include touch-screen radio controls that are not so user friendly. Bluetooth and a USB port are standard, and Toyota's Entune smartphone integration is available.

Best Version to Get

It's hard to go wrong with any Camry. We're partial to the XLE with the four-cylinder engine; it combines efficiency with a decent swaddling of luxury.
