Toyota Camry 2016 sedan
Trim Shown: SE/XSE
Sure, it might seem vanilla, but the Camry truly delivers what shoppers want in a midsize sedan. And vanilla happens to be the best-selling flavor of ice cream. The Camry's no-fuss driving experience-great outward visibility, controls that fall easily to hand, a roomy interior-may not be the most thrilling in its class, but it's far from its undeserved boring reputation. A quiet cabin, slick powertrains, a comfortable ride, and sound handling make it pleasant and capable. Year after year this sedan delivers outstanding reliability and solid owner satisfaction. The Camry also scored impressive crash-test results, as well as very competitive fuel economy, which tops out with the Hybrid's 38 mpg.
