2011 Toyota Camry: The Toyota Camry is large, comfortable, packs a powerful V-6 and a silky smooth transmission. For all those strengths, however, brand-new competitors from Hyundai, Kia and also Ford are thought about on the same level with the front-runner, as well as are typically a far better worth.

Where does that leave the Camry? It's a great alternative for commuters or any person else trying to find a pleasant trip they do not have to think excessive regarding. It's not thrilling, yet it's as strong a vehicle as you could buy. And also people maintain buying it, year after year.


2011 Toyota Camry


Performance

Customers are increasingly changing to four-cylinder engines in their midsize sedans, and also the Camry's held up well in a recent Cars.com Shootout. It's competent and also shifts well.

While the optional 18-inch sport-oriented wheels harshened its vaunted trip a little bit, the Camry's travelling convenience is reputable. The guiding isn't really crisp, and handling is mediocre, yet if you're going from factor A to factor B and also would rather pay even more focus on NPR than the contours in the roadway, this is a good option.

The optional 268-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 that powered my current tester showed to be unbelievably quick, which was the most unexpected element of the Camry when traveling.

While I can warrant the tradeoff in taking care of skill for convenience, I cannot abide the Toyota's subpar brakes. It's native to the island in the brand: You have to push also far down to obtain the action you desire. Slack steering is one point, however pulling up is as vital a vehicle driver input as there is.

Honda's brakes can be overly grabby, yet Ford, Hyundai and also Kia versions respond with the typical feedback vehicle drivers must anticipate.

Due to the fact that the Camry is an aging system, the company hasn't already resolved gas mileage in some time, so it falls short of most competitors. At 20/29 mpg city/highway, 23 mpg incorporated, the V-6 is a little behind the Accord's 24 mpg integrated however ahead of the Ford Blend's V-6, at 21 mpg incorporated. The real stunner is the brand-new Hyundai Sonata Turbo; instead of a V-6, it supplies a turbocharged four-cylinder that has even more power than the Camry V-6 and gas mileage that bests also the Camry's four-cylinder nuclear power plant: 22/33 mpg city/highway, 26 mpg integrated.

Toyota markets a Camry Crossbreed that's much more pricey but returns gas mileage of 31/35 mpg city/highway, 33 mpg combined. But-- you presumed it: The Sonata has a crossbreed variant, too, and also it surpasses the Camry conveniently, with mileage of 35/40 mpg city/highway, 37 mpg incorporated.

Interior

As the Camry system ages, the interior has stood up rather well against the competition. Plastics are high-quality, even measured against the Sonata. I liked the control panel's simple, rather sophisticated layout, with a beautiful focal point around the radio controls.

The pole positions are exceptionally broad-- the best I could remember in a car this dimension. Decked out in leather that my tester had, they are additionally unbelievably comfy, even on long drives. The backseat has lots of room for grown-up guests and child-safety seats.

The trunk is also on the huge side, at 14.5 cubic feet. It includes an exceptionally broad opening, so it's easy to obtain large things inside.

Features & Pricing

A large problem for any vehicle buyer today is bottom-line cost. As practical maybe, the Camry does have a price costs. When looking at comparable Sonata trims, the Camry is constantly a lot more costly, by a margin of $500-$ 2,000. At base degrees, the Sonata comes better complete compared to the Camry, packing conventional Bluetooth as well as USB inputs.

If the Camry were significantly exceptional in all other areas, maybe it would certainly be worth its higher price. But that's not the instance; Hyundai has a much better service warranty, which brand's integrity is likewise enhancing, even if it cannot flaunt Toyota's long track record.

Security

Making use of the government's brand-new five-star ranking system for accident examinations, the Camry made 4 stars total but only after making changes in the manufacturing of the new model. 2011 model year Camry cars manufactured after November 22, 2010, are those that gain the higher, four-star rating. You can examine a vehicle's develop day on a label fastened to the driver-side doorjamb.

The Camry earned the top rating, Great, in the Insurance Institute for Freeway Safety and security's frontal as well as side collision examinations, as well as the roof-strength test, yet handled just a Minimal score in rear crashes, avoiding it from earning a Leading Security Select designation.

This is another area where the Hyundai wins out. The Sonata is among simply a couple of automobiles on the marketplace to have a government first-class safety score and also to be an IIHS Top Safety Choose.

Camry in the Market

For several years, the Toyota Camry has been the champ out there when it concerns sales. Even after significant recalls in the past 2 years, the auto still tops sales graphes.

All those faithful customers have to value comfort and also peacefulness over all else, because the Camry is targeted by every brand-new sedan to strike the market, as well as for the most part it's held its very own.

That sedan shootout of ours I discussed earlier? The Camry ended up an extremely reputable second place against 7 of those novices. It was bested only by the Hyundai Sonata.
