Toyota Camry SE: A Tale of Two Seats

September 20, 2012

2012 Toyota Camry

We've gone on and on about the immensely satisfying charms offered by the seats found in our Camry (shown above). Of course, our Camry is an SE model, which means it's equipped with upgraded sport seats.

We had a Camry from one of the lesser trims (the LE) in our garage the other day, and I was curious to see how its seats compare with the lauded, legendary seats found in our SE.

As you can see, the accommodations in the LE are reminiscent of the seating you'd find on a JetBlue flight to Cedar Rapids. They're comfortable enough, but ultimately, they're a lot less sexy than the chairs found in our SE. Less supportive bolsters and a far less appealing fabric combination.

Any Camry owners out there? Did you spring for the SE, and if so, were the sport seats a factor in your decision?
