Toyota Camry Review
The 2015 Toyota Camry ranks 2 out of 18 Affordable Midsize Cars. This ranking is based on our analysis of published reviews and test drives of the Toyota Camry, as well as reliability and safety data.
Reviewers say the revised 2015 Toyota Camry delivers steady handling and easy-to-use tech features.
While some test drivers are satisfied with the 2015 Toyota Camry's standard four-cylinder engine, others wish it delivered more power. They find the optional V6 engine more energetic, but not as lively as they'd like. The 2015 Camry's fuel economy is a bit low for the class, getting up to an EPA-estimated 25/35 mpg city/highway. Though it isn’t more fun to drive than its competitors, auto writers say the 2015 Camry has very composed handling, especially in the sport-tuned SE and XSE trims. They write that the Camry also has a noticeably comfortable ride, though they note that it is firmer in the sportier models.
The base 2015 Toyota Camry's revamped cabin appears bland to some reviewers, but most find that the interiors in the higher XSE and XLE trims are made of better materials and are more attractively designed. The Camry's interior is extraordinarily quiet, automotive writers say, and they note that the back seat is spacious. The Camry's audio and climate buttons are user-friendly and simple to adjust while driving, critics say, and they appreciate that the standard touch-screen display has sizeable on-screen buttons and easy-to-use virtual menus. Standard features in the 2015 Toyota Camry include an eight-way power-adjustable driver seat, a rearview camera, a 6.1-inch touch-screen audio system, Bluetooth and a USB port. Available features include leather upholstery, heated front seats, a moonroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, push-button start, smartphone app integration, navigation, satellite radio, a 10-speaker JBL audio system and blind spot monitoring. Newly available features for 2015 include pre-collision warning, rear cross traffic warning, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and a wireless charging mat for phones and portable devices.
- "A few minor blemishes aside, the 2015 Toyota Camry is an impressively thorough and complete refresh. The new car is without a doubt better than the one it replaces in every way and, more important, is far more competitive than the old car against the fresh, new competition from Honda, Hyundai, Chrysler, and more." -- Motor Trend
- "Already a perennial sales champion, the Toyota Camry just became an easier choice for more midsize sedan shoppers." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "After our initial time in the new Camry, we can't say that it stands above the current crop of Edmunds A-rated class leaders: Ford Fusion, Honda Accord, Hyundai Sonata and Nissan Altima. However, while the quality of its cabin still may not beat or even necessary match all of them, the 2015 Toyota Camry is significantly closer than it was before." -- Edmunds
- "For the last 12 years, the sales crown has been Camry's to lose, and the competition from Honda, Mazda, Kia, Hyundai, Chrysler, Ford and others - to say nothing of compact and midsize crossovers - has gotten stronger than ever. But after driving the 2015 Camry, we'd say that this Toyota's spot at the top of the charts seems as secure as ever. For now." -- Autoblog
Other Cars to Consider
Test drivers enjoy the redesigned Hyundai Sonata’s composed handling and quiet, comfortable ride. The Sonata also has a very large trunk for the class, and automotive journalists report that it has an attractive cabin with first-class materials.
The Honda Accord gets better fuel economy than the Camry, and reviewers report that its base four-cylinder engine has surprisingly strong acceleration. Critics also love the Accord’s nimble handling and huge back seat.
