Expert Rating
Unavailable

Our expert ratings are based on seven comprehensive criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Overview

The Nissan Altima is similarly quiet and will do up to 38 MPG highway with its four-cylinder. But the design is just as conservative as the Camry's. The 2013 Chevrolet Malibu offers a hybrid-electric Eco trim, as well as a turbocharged four-cylinder, but is smaller overall. The Hyundai Sonata is just as fuel efficient but has a more stylish exterior and interior, but the sleek roof cuts into headroom. The Volkswagen Passat offers both a manual transmission and a fuel-efficient TDI clean diesel engine, along with a vast rear seat and trunk. But the Passat's gas engines are not as fuel efficient and VW doesn't have Toyota's reliability reputation.

None of the competition can match the Camry's sales record and few can approach its record for worry-free ownership. Shoppers return over and over for the Toyota's dependability and cosseting ride and noise qualities that make the Camry one of the best picks for a midsize family sedan – provided an enthusiastic driving experience isn't a priority. But it offers buyers a quiet experience with lots of space and a fuel-efficient range of engines. In all, it represents one of the most pragmatic buys in the segment and presents no reason why it shouldn't continue as the country's best-selling car, or prevent loyal customers from returning to Toyota over and over.
