2011 Toyota Camry


Efficiency

Buyers are progressively changing to four-cylinder engines in their midsize sedans, and also the Camry's stood up well in a current Cars.com Shootout. It's competent and shifts well.

While the optional 18-inch sport-oriented wheels harshened its vaunted trip a bit, the Camry's cruising convenience is reputable. The steering isn't crisp, as well as handling is mediocre, however if you're going from factor A to factor B and also prefer to pay more attention to NPR compared to the curves in the roadway, this is a great choice.

The optional 268-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 that powered my current tester proved to be extremely fast, which was the most unexpected facet of the Camry on the road.

While I could validate the tradeoff in managing skill for comfort, I cannot follow the Toyota's substandard brakes. It's native to the island in the brand name: You have to push as well far down to obtain the response you desire. Slack steering is one thing, but coming to a stop is as essential a chauffeur input as there is.

Honda's brakes can be extremely hoggish, but Ford, Hyundai and Kia versions respond with the regular comments chauffeurs ought to expect.

Because the Camry is an aging platform, the firm hasn't dealt with gas mileage in a long time, so it falls short of many rivals. At 20/29 mpg city/highway, 23 mpg combined, the V-6 is somewhat behind the Accord's 24 mpg incorporated but ahead of the Ford Combination's V-6, at 21 mpg incorporated. The actual stunner is the brand-new Hyundai Sonata Turbo; instead of a V-6, it uses a turbocharged four-cylinder that has more power than the Camry V-6 and also gas mileage that bests also the Camry's four-cylinder power plant: 22/33 mpg city/highway, 26 mpg combined.

Toyota sells a Camry Crossbreed that's extra pricey yet returns mileage of 31/35 mpg city/highway, 33 mpg incorporated. But-- you guessed it: The Sonata has a crossbreed variant, also, and also it surpasses the Camry conveniently, with mileage of 35/40 mpg city/highway, 37 mpg incorporated.

Interior

As the Camry platform ages, the interior has actually stood up quite well against the competitors. Plastics are top notch, also gauged against the Sonata. I suched as the control panel's basic, somewhat elegant layout, with a radiant focal point around the radio controls.

The pole positions are extremely broad-- the widest I can recall in an auto this dimension. Spruced up in leather that my tester had, they are additionally extremely comfy, also on lengthy drives. The rear seat has lots of space for adult guests and also child-safety seats.

The trunk is additionally on the large side, at 14.5 cubic feet. It features an exceptionally wide opening, so it's very easy to obtain bulky objects inside.

Features & Rates

A large problem for any type of cars and truck consumer today is fundamental cost. As sensible maybe, the Camry does have a cost costs. When considering comparable Sonata trims, the Camry is always a lot more expensive, by a margin of $500-$ 2,000. At base levels, the Sonata comes much better complete than the Camry, loading conventional Bluetooth as well as USB inputs.

If the Camry were greatly premium in all other areas, maybe it would certainly deserve its higher price. However that's not the instance; Hyundai has a better guarantee, and that brand name's dependability is also improving, even if it can not flaunt Toyota's long track record.

Security

Using the federal government's new luxury score system for collision tests, the Camry earned four stars total yet only after making changes in the manufacturing of the brand-new model. 2011 model year Camry sedans produced after November 22, 2010, are those that make the greater, four-star ranking. You could check an automobile's construct date on a tag fastened to the driver-side doorjamb.

The Camry earned the leading rating, Good, in the Insurance Institute for Freeway Safety and security's frontal as well as side accident tests, as well as the roof-strength examination, however managed just a Limited score in rear accidents, stopping it from earning a Leading Safety Pick classification.

This is an additional area where the Hyundai wins out. The Sonata is among simply a couple of vehicles on the market to have a federal government first-class safety score and also to be an IIHS Top Security Pick.

Camry on the market

For years, the Toyota Camry has been the champion on the market when it concerns sales. After remarkable recalls in the past 2 years, the vehicle still tops sales graphes.

All those dedicated purchasers should value comfort and tranquility over all else, due to the fact that the Camry is targeted by every brand-new sedan to hit the market, and for the most part it's held its very own.

That car shootout of ours I mentioned earlier? The Camry completed a really respectable second area against seven of those novices. It was bested only by the Hyundai Sonata.
