Used Car: 2011 Toyota Camry Review

Review Last Updated: 7/26/12

The 2011 Toyota Camry’s strengths include a good reliability rating, and when it was new, auto critics said that the 2011 Camry is a sensible, roomy and relaxed midsize sedan. Still, if you want a car that’s fun to drive, they suggested that other 2011 midsize cars are more engaging to drive.

The 2011 Toyota Camry is ranked:

The 2011 Toyota Camry is a solid choice in the segment, but auto critics said if you want stand-out looks and athletic handling, the Camry isn’t the best option. In addition to the Camry’s high reliability rating, it has good fuel economy and a large cabin and trunk. When the Camry was new, test drivers also praised its quiet ride and powerful available V6.

Most test drivers thought the 2011 Camry’s main drawback was its boring performance, while others noted lackluster styling and a few subpar interior materials. The Camry also has low safety scores for its class.

The front-wheel drive 2011 Toyota Camry comes with either a four-cylinder or V6 engine. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, and a six-speed automatic is available. The 2011 Camry gets up to 22/33 mpg city/highway, which is about average for the class. The base Camry’s standard features include a six-speaker stereo and cruise control. Features like an upgraded stereo with satellite radio, Bluetooth, navigation and heated front seats were all available on higher trims or as options when the Camry was new. Seven airbags, including a driver’s knee airbag, anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control and traction control are included as standard safety equipment on the 2011 Camry.

Other Cars to Consider

The 2011 Ford Fusion is roomy and practical, and auto critics said it was fun to drive thanks to its athletic handling. Available features, like all-wheel drive and Ford’s Sync voice-activated infotainment system, and a high reliability rating help the Fusion outrank the competition.

The 2011 Honda Accord is often cross-shopped against the 2011 Camry. Both cars are known for practicality, reliability and good fuel economy. When it was new, test drivers said that the Accord offered a spacious interior and performance that’s a tad sportier than the Camry. The 2011 Accord also earns better safety scores, and is available as a coupe if you don’t need the practicality of a sedan.
