2012 Toyota Camry SE: Overall Thoughts

April 30, 2012


I got a lot of quality time (three weeks straight) with our Camry recently. Normally, you'd think that an extended duration in a Camry would be the result of some kind of long-term test car banishment. But even if true, I wouldn't mind -- I actually did enjoy driving it.

The previous generation Camry was outclassed by a lot of other midsize sedans. This one holds its own. Whether its driver comfort, fuel economy, performance, interior quality, styling, handling (SE trim) or rear seat comfort, the new Camry does very well in my opinion.  I suppose a possible downside is that it doesn't really excel in any of these areas. You can likely find another midsize sedan that beats the Camry in a particular area. The latest Camry is not going to be a flashy choice in this segment. But it's a smart one.
