Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.
You can interpret our ratings in the following way:
5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.
4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.
3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.
2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.
1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.
2017 Toyota Camry OVERVIEW
The Toyota Camry is the product of an ongoing case study of the American family and its transportation needs. The Camry's combination of comfort, usability, agreeable design and appliance-like reliability have made it the single bestselling car in the United States for the past fourteen years in a row while preserving consistently high resale value. If you shop for vehicles based on function and value, the Camry will be at the top of your list—and will likely end up in your garage.
What's New for 2017
The XSE and XLE receive an optional upgraded Entune infotainment package with a JBL sound system. If you prefer the sounds and maps on your mobile device, the XLE and four-cylinder XSE now feature a Qi wireless smartphone charger. The trendy Blue Streak paint which was part of 2016's Special Edition is now available on all SE and XSE models. Otherwise, the Camry carries over unchanged—even the MSRPs for each model are the same as for 2016.
Choosing Your Toyota Camry
The Camry is the very image of the modern family sedan. Bodywork that combines aerodynamic slipperiness with contemporary style encloses a comfortable interior loaded with convenience and tech equipment. A multitude of standard safety features either try to prevent accidents (Toyota's all-encompassing Star Safety System) or protect occupants when they happen (ten airbags, whiplash-mitigating front seats).
Power—either 178 horsepower from the inline-4 or a rousing 268 horsepower from the V6 available on the XLE and XSE—is sent to the front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission. Each wheel is suspended independently and stopped by a disc brake. The steering uses electric power assist.
The Camry is available in four trim levels:
The Camry is at its best when taken for what it is: sensible, straightforward family transportation. The LE brings all the important features without excessive expense or complexity.
