2015 Toyota Camry OVERVIEW

America's favorite car, the Toyota Camry has kept to traditional family sedan values even as it tries to get with the times. While it may be trying to up its style factor amid a whole line of capable competition, the Camry majors on refinement and space, which is what most buyers looking for midsize sedans really want.

What's New for 2015

For 2015, the Toyota Camry gets a heavy revision just three years after this generation debuted. Toyota says every exterior panel, save for the roof, is new, with a much more aggressive front clip on every model. There have been suspension changes on all models, with additional structural improvements to make the body more rigid. Finally, a new XSE model is now the sportiest Camry you can buy.

Choosing your Toyota Camry

The Camry range is largely split into two camps: normal and sport. LE and XLE models major on comfort and refinement and are the traditional models, while SE and XSE try to go after those who want just a dollop of fun and nothing more. Two engines are available: a 2.5-liter four with 178 horsepower and EPA ratings of 25 city and 35 highway. The 3.5-liter V6 offers 268 horsepower with 21/31 fuel economy. All Camrys are powered through the front wheels by a six-speed automatic.


The most popular Camry, the LE gets the four-cylinder engine along with features like a backup camera, power driver's seat, a 6.1-inch Display Audio system with Toyota's Entune system for connectivity, Bluetooth and USB input. An optional package includes a 4.2-inch digital display in the instrument cluster, as well as upgraded audio with HD radio and a power moonroof. At right around $26,000 with all of this equipment, the Camry LE is a solid value.


SE models add a sportier suspension set up and slightly more aggressive styling over the LE, in the form of a mesh grille and subtle body kit. Also included are paddle shifters, 17-inch alloy wheels and the 4.2-inch digital instrument cluster display. Options include the upgraded Entune audio system, 7-inch touchscreen with navigation and a power moonroof.


New for 2015, XSE adds more sporting pretensions to the SE's formula in the form of 18-inch alloy wheels and even more aggressive steering and suspension tuning with leather-covered sport seats. The XSE is also available with the V6 engine, which adds LED headlights. Navigation is a standalone option, while a separate package bundles it with a power moonroof, blind spot monitor and keyless entry and start.


The XLE is the most luxurious Camry, aimed at those looking for more Lexus-like comforts. Key features are a leather interior with woodgrain accents, 17-inch wheels and an available V6. Also included is keyless entry and start, premium audio with navigation and HD radio and wireless charging. A $5,000 package, however, bundles JBL audio with a power moonroof, blind-spot monitor, alarm, lane departure warning, radar-guided cruise control and Toyota's Safety Connect telematics.

CarsDirect Tip

Frankly, the SE and XSE models still can't hold a candle to sportier models in this segment like the Accord, Fusion and Mazda6. Camrys make more sense in their traditional format, which now offers better body control and response without spoiling the refinement. LE is the most popular trim for good reasons, though an XLE with its V6 power is a bit of a sleeper.
