The 2017 Toyota Camry fulfills all of the expectations placed on midsize sedans, which is likely why it’s been such a huge sales success. With an emphasis on comfort and ease of use, combined with a solid reputation for durability and reliability, it’s easy to see why. Some rival sedans might be a little flashier or sportier, but the Camry remains an honest and worthy pick.
For 2017, the Camry soldiers on mostly unchanged. You have four trim levels ranging from basic to sporty or more luxurious, and two engine choices: an adequate four-cylinder or a potent V6. The top two trims are eligible for the V6 as well as some optional advanced safety features, which is one of the reasons we recommend upgrading to these levels.
There’s of course no shortage of competition for the 2017 Toyota Camry, and you’d do well to check them out. Each represents a slightly different take on the midsize sedan, emphasizing a different brand of performance, value and personality. Deciding between them may very well come down to an intangible preference, but almost all of them will satisfy your core needs.
