2013 toyota Camry

In most kinds, the Camry is a quiet, smooth-riding car with couple of thrills or grievances, yet the 2013 SE with an uplevel V-6 revealed only the Camry's defects - 2013 Toyota Camry.

The Camry was totally redesigned for the 2012 version year and remains reasonably the same for 2013. You could read an evaluation of the 2012 four-cylinder and other trim levels below.


2013 Toyota Camry


Performance

At the heart of the sport-tuned SE is a 268-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine that supplies power remarkably efficiently as well as fairly silently through a six-speed automatic transmission. Charging up highway on-ramps and passing at high speeds are non-events with this much power at hand. Nevertheless, in a fashion much like what we experienced in the 178-hp four-cylinder, the front tires can break loose under tough velocity consequently maneuvers.

The two largest differences between the Camry four-cylinders we have actually examined in the past and also this SE are the obvious gas mileage charge as well as the unexpected sacrifice in ride top quality.

The four-cylinder Camry is ranked 25/35/28 mpg city/highway/combined. That's behind the redesigned 2013 Honda Accord's 27/36/30 mpg, while both drag the also just recently revamped 2013 Nissan Altima's 27/38/31 mpg.

Moving up to the V-6 alternative in any of these three impacts mileage significantly, with the Camry going down to 21/31/25 mpg. The V-6 Accord is rated 21/34/25, and also the Altima is 22/31/25 mpg.

Subjectively, our editors have actually constantly located the Camry to supply a quiet as well as comfy trip that needs to appeal to travelers as well as road-trippers alike. In our $26,000 Midsize Car Obstacle (see the outcomes), judges scored the car well for its ride across the board, while various other challengers had inconsistent outcomes.

The SE design tries to deliver a sporty driving experience that is absolutely absent in other Camry versions we have actually tested. The handling and guiding are slightly sharper below, however there was still that tire-slip concern. Likewise, a great deal of flight convenience is given up for sportiness-- a sacrifice I do not think Camry shoppers will want to make.

Over freeway development joints, the SE's suspension supplied pronounced jolts that ended up being a severe inconvenience on my commute. The 18-inch alloy wheels didn't assist issues. They're typical on the SE V-6, while 17s are basic on both the four-cylinder SE and the XLE V-6.

Inside

As the competition heats up, Toyota locates itself facing not simply Honda and Nissan, however likewise substantial entrances from Hyundai, Kia, Ford and also Mazda. All produce excellent midsize cars, especially in terms of their interiors.

Some, like the Altima as well as Hyundai Sonata, provide a similar level of comfort as the Camry, while the brand-new Accord, Ford Blend and Mazda6 deliver upscale insides that the Camry could not compete with.

The previous-generation Camry's interior stood up gradually as one of the classiest in the segment, yet the redesigned version appeared inexpensive to most of us initially. That's not a great sign in an ambience where Honda had to revamp its last Civic a year after a total redesign thanks to comparable view.

The trouble does not stem from the controls or format, but mainly the use of varied appearances along the dashboard, doors, armrests as well as various other areas that are often touched by owners as well as gazed upon by all.

They feel rather spongy to the touch and also look too much like plastic to the eye. Even some sewing methods that attempt to be high end fall short below. My spouse, after entering our $32,090 Camry test cars and truck (with alternatives and location), asked if she remained in the Corolla, the Toyota compact car that begins at fifty percent that rate.

The Camry still uses a large cabin that is comfortable for the vehicle driver as well as guests. Both guest as well as trunk volume-- 102.7 cubic feet and 15.4 cubic feet, respectively-- remain in line with the rest of the class.

Safety and security

The Camry is geared up with a typical collection of air bags and also is a Leading Safety Pick by the Insurance Policy Institute for Highway Safety And Security. It additionally earned a luxury general safety and security score from the National Freeway Traffic Security Administration.

In a recent Child seat Inspect by Cars.com's licensed installers, the Camry scored well for suitable all kinds of child-safety seats in different positions, along with for convenience of installment. You can find all the safety-related functions below.

Camry in the Market

As a four-cylinder with lots of convenience as well as room, the Camry is still a car to advise. There are simply extra competitors today that additionally warrant a close appearance, regardless of what sort of trip a buyer wants in a midsize sedan.

In its most performance-oriented variation, nevertheless, the Camry is no longer true to what has made it such a prominent lorry but fails to supply all right on the guarantee of delights.
