Reliability

Many long-term Camry owners report getting more than 300,000 miles with plenty of life left. That makes it the perfect car for those who commute great distances every day and for travelers who like to take long and frequent road trips.

Whether you want a sportier model, a powerful engine, or an efficient hybrid, the Camry is available in multiple trim levels and package options that allow you to customize your car.

The V-6 options include the XLE V-6 with a front power panoramic tilt-slide roof and the all-premium XSE V-6. The sportier SE and XSE models feature a front grille with sports mesh insert and 18-inch or 19-inch wheels. For maximum fuel efficiency, choose from three hybrid options including the basic hybrid LE, sporty hybrid SE, or fully-loaded hybrid XLE.

 

Affordability

The Camry is available in a budget-friendly base model and includes options all the way up to a fully premium model. Starting at $23,495 MSRP, the base model includes Toyota Safety Sense driver assistance and safety options combined with GPS navigation and a connected app suite. There are also three hybrid options starting at $27,900 MSRP. The 2018 Toyota Camry XSE, starting at $34,950 MSRP, includes high-end leather and upholstery, premium audio, as well as premium convenience, connectivity, and safety features. According to Kelly Blue Book, the five-year projected cost of ownership for the Toyota Camry LE is $34,931 including depreciation, fuel, insurance, and maintenance.

 

Fuel Economy

According to fueleconomy.gov, the 4-cylinder base model gets an estimated 29/41 city/highway MPG, while the V-6 comes in at 22/33 MPG. The hybrid versions offer maximum fuel economy with a combined city/highway rating of 46-52 MPG. Annual fuel costs for the gasoline models range from $1,150 to $1,500. The top fuel cost estimate for the Camry hybrid is $850 per year.

 

Drivability and Performance

Its well-insulated cabin reduces most engine and outside noise. With the help of the eight-speed automatic transmission, the Camry has exceptional acceleration, going from zero to 60 in 6.1 seconds. Whether you choose the 4-cylinder, V-6, or hybrid variant, steering is responsive and confident. Advanced shocks virtually absorb all road vibrations. The 2018 Camry received a design overhaul for a sportier drive. The new Camry has improved structural rigidity and a lower center of gravity that makes handling and turning more confident in a variety of road and driving conditions.

 

Safety

With standard and available safety features including ABS braking, blind spot monitoring, and lane departure warning, the Camry is a safe family car for all your passengers and even for your teen drivers. Toyota’s Safety Connect emergency response system is an optional feature available on the XLE models. The Camry is built with superior impact handling that earns it a five-star safety rating and is an IIHS Top Safety Pick.

 

Comfort and Convenience

Five adults sit comfortably inside the Camry. There is extra legroom, headroom, and a large trunk for extra cargo space. The driver’s information, entertainment, and other controls are well-designed and user-friendly. The 2018 Camry features the Entune 3.0 system that includes hands-free phone operation, Siri Eyes Free, and integrated navigation which allows you to do more like voice search for businesses, check local traffic and weather, make reservations or buy tickets, compare gas prices, and access more music.

The Camry is one of the most dependable cars on the road. Excellent gas mileage is a given across all Camry models. Expect a smooth, quiet, and comfortable ride that rivals many luxury sedans. With 10 models to choose from with prices to fit every budget, plus options to fit your personality, family needs and lifestyle, becoming a Toyota Camry owner is a wise choice.
