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.

2018 Toyota Camry OVERVIEW

There aren’t many people that will say the Camry is their favorite car, but considering the millions of Camrys that have been sold over the model’s 35 years of existence, it has often nonetheless been their car. When any car is a perennial best-seller, you know its maker is doing something right. And there’s no better way to see just how right Toyota’s formula is than to check out the all-new-for-2018 Camry.

What's New for 2018

Toyota completely redesigned the Camry for 2018.

Choosing Your Toyota Camry

Now in its eighth generation, Toyota’s perennial best-seller is available with one of two engines (a hybrid powertrain is coming soon and will be listed separately).

A 2.5-liter four-cylinder is standard and produces 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque in L, LE, SE and XLE trims and an additional three hp and two lb-ft in the top-shelf XSE. EPA ratings are 29 miles per gallon city, 41 mpg highway, and 34 mpg combined on L models, 28/39/32 on the rest.

A 3.5-liter V6 is available on the XLE and XSE, and pumps out 301 hp and 267 lb-ft. It returns an EPA-estimated 22 mpg city, 33 mpg highway, and 26 combined on XLEs and 22/32/26 on the XSE. An eight-speed automatic replaces the old six-speed automatic from the last-generation Camry.

Regardless of engine, the 2018 Camry can be had with two distinct looks and styling features inside and out. The easiest way to tell the two apart is from in front, where standard and more luxury-oriented models wear a single large ribbed grille opening beneath the nose. The more sportier-looking SE and XSE models have a multi-part hourglass grille and small cheek vents bounded by angular body colored elements. The themes carry over into the interiors as well, with different upholstery and trim choices.

The Camry comes in seven trim levels:

L

The L trim may be the bottom rung on the Camry ladder, but don’t think it’s a stripped-down rental car special. Its $24,380 (including $885 destination charge) starting price includes Toyota’s Entune 3.0 multimedia audio system with a 4.2-inch touch screen, navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, Google voice controls, USB and auxiliary audio jacks, an integrated backup camera, 16-inch steel wheels and Toyota Safety Sense P, an active safety package that combines pre-collision braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with steering assist, automatic high beams, and adaptive cruise control.

LE

For an additional $500 moving to the LE model adds an 8-way power driver’s seat with lumbar support, a 60/40 split folding rear seat with center armrest and cup holders, 17-inch alloy wheels and an anti-theft alarm system. It’s also the first trim level to give you access to optional packages.

The Convenience Package ($1,225) includes push-button start, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with compass, blind spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert while the Audio Package ($3,580) adds the aforementioned plus dual-zone automatic climate control, Qi-compatible wireless smart phone charging, and a power tilt/slide moonroof.

XLE

The $29,335 XLE includes standard LE equipment but makes the Convenience Package and automatic HVAC system standard. Leather upholstery replaces the cloth thrones, both front seats are 8-way power-adjustable, wheels grow to 18-inches, and you get a bright metallic front grille.

Tech upgrades include three distinct driving modes – the typical Eco, Sport, and Normal – a seven-inch touchscreen display, and LED headlamps and taillamps. Available options include a Driver Assist Package ($1,675) includes a 10-inch color head-up display and surround-view camera, a panoramic sunroof ($1,045), an Audio Package similar to the LE’s but with JBL-branded speakers ($4,520) and includes both the Driver Assist Package and extra-large sunroof.

XLE V6

In addition to the engine and its dual exhausts, the additional $5,950 you pay for the $35,285 V6-equipped XLE makes the panoramic roof and audio package standard. The Driver Assist Package's price drops $1,050 since the only part of it that's not standard is the surround-view camera. A version of this package is also available with navigation for an extra $940.

SE

If “sporty” is your thing, the SE is the most affordable Camry to fulfill that need. For $26,085 you get black 18-inch alloy wheels and a body kit with more aggressive, angular front and rear fascias, body-color side sills, and a rear wing, plus sporty cloth-trimmed front seats, and a leather-wrapped telescopic sport steering wheel backed by paddle shifters. The moonroof can be had for $900, while blind-spot monitoring and the Convenience Package cost $1,225. Toyota packages both items for $2,125. The Audio Package from other trims are available here, and can be bundled with other features for either for $2,480 (blind-spot monitoring and Convenience Package only) or $3,380 for the Audio Package with the safety features and a panoramic sunroof.

XSE

The $29,885 XSE is very close in price to the XLE, and that’s for a good reason: for the most part, they are identically-equipped with only the SE-style sporty trims inside and out setting them apart. These models also share some options packages including the $1,675 Driver Assist Package and the $1,045 Panoramic glass roof. You can also add the Audio Package, though in this case it costs $1,800. And yes, you can package the packages, with the first two for $2,720 and all three for $4,520.

XSE V6

Again, aside from the more aggressive aesthetics, the $35,835 XSE V6 has almost everything in common with its XLE V6 sibling, though the XSE is $550 more. The Driver Assist Package is still $1,050, and the Navigation Package adds the same $940 as before. The only real difference is the extra-cost two-tone Midnight Black Metallic roof and rear spoiler that’s unique to both XSEs.

CarsDirect Tip

Regardless Camry appeals to you, the trim level at which the “X” first appears is the best value. Both the XLE and XSE include most of the features one would expect on a model in this price range, and they offer access to all of the available options individually or as packages. If you want the additional performance of the V6 you’ll pay quite a bit for it, both in price and loss of efficiency, but at least Toyota offers most options in four-cylinder models as standard in the pricey V6.
