Which Camry does Edmunds recommend?

The 2017 Toyota Camry, in XSE trim, represents an agreeable middle ground between the base LE and top-of-the-line XLE, both in terms of price and feature content. We recommend it over the SE trim because it is eligible for the optional Technology package and its advanced safety features. If you can't decide on an engine, the standard four-cylinder will be adequate for the majority of drivers. We like the optional V6's more confident acceleration, but the price premium may be a deal-breaker.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

4.5 / 5

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.

Trim levels & features

The 2017 Toyota Camry is a midsize sedan that seats five and is available in four trim levels: LE, SE, XSE and XLE. All models come standard with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine (178 horsepower, 170 pound-feet of torque) that is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission driving the front wheels. XSE and XLE models are eligible for an optional 3.5-liter V6 (268 hp, 248 lb-ft).

Standard feature highlights for the base LE trim include 16-inch steel wheels, automatic headlights, heated mirrors, a sunroof, keyless remote entry, power front seats, 60/40-split folding rear seats, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, a 6.1-inch Entune touchscreen interface and a six-speaker sound system.

The SE adds 17-inch alloy wheels, a sport-tuned suspension, paddle shifters, upgraded cloth and simulated-leather upholstery, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

We like what you get with the XSE, though. It steps up with 18-inch wheels, LED running lights, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather and simulated-suede upholstery, a wireless charging pad, an upgraded Entune system with 7-inch display, a smartphone app-based navigation system and a 10-speaker premium audio system with satellite and HD radio. V6 models also get LED headlights, a sunroof, a noise-reducing windshield and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

The range-topping XLE trim tops it off with 17-inch wheels, leather upholstery and heated front seats. V6 models add keyless entry and ignition.

Many of these features are available on supporting trims as options. An integrated navigation system is also offered on all models. Additionally, the Technology package for the XSE trim adds adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning and mitigation, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and automatic high beams. Adding this package to the XLE trim also includes Toyota's Safety Connect emergency telematics features.

Trim tested

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the 2015 Toyota Camry XLE (3.5L V6; 6-speed automatic). NOTE: Since this test was conducted, the current Camry has received only minor revisions. Our findings remain broadly applicable to this year's Camry.

Driving

4.5
The 2017 Toyota Camry is a strong performer for the class. Its smooth and powerful engine makes it just as quick as other V6 competitors. The brakes are up to the task, handling is confident, and overall drivability is among the best.

Acceleration

4.5
The Camry V6 is plenty strong in a straight line, posting a 6.2-second dash to 60 mph. This sedan accelerates effortlessly with this engine combined with a smooth, manually shiftable six-speed automatic.

Braking

4
Though the 129 feet it took for the Camry to stop from 60 mph at our test track is on the long side for the class, pedal feel was very good with intuitive around-town operation. We also noted good resistance to pedal fade even with repeated use.

Steering

4
We still wouldn't say the Camry's steering gives a great feel of the road, but it has some life to it and provides more feedback than previous generations. This is an easy car to steer, and you can place it in corners with confidence.

Handling

4
Even if ultimate tire grip is modest, the Camry's poise and ability to go from corner to corner with confidence are good for this class. The electronic stability control system is effective and unobtrusive when it's needed and engaged.

Drivability

5
With its effortless acceleration, intuitive brake response, confident handling and excellent highway manners, the Camry is easy to drive on all manner of roads. Light steering and a manageable size make it easy to park as well.

Comfort

5
The 2017 Camry's front seats have ample adjustability and are adequately supportive. Rear accommodations are also very generous. Highway ride and overall quietness are among the best in the class.

Seat comfort

4.5
The XLE's heated leather front seats offer good comfort and adequate support. The rear seat can actually accommodate three across, thanks to exceptionally generous proportions and good contours.

Ride comfort

5
One of the Camry's best qualities is its plush and sophisticated ride. It's able to soak up small bumps without a fuss and without the secondary body motions that plague some cars in this class.

Noise & vibration

5
With excellent isolation from road, engine and wind noise, the Camry is among the quietest cars in its class. Whether idling, accelerating at full-throttle up to speed or just cruising on the highway, only true luxury cars are quieter.

Interior

5
Camry's top-trim XLE interior is well-designed with excellent ergonomics, from a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel to a responsive touchscreen. Entry into and exit from the cavernous interior is a snap, storage and cargo capacity are generous, and numerous aids for visibility are available.

Ease of use

4
Large buttons and knobs dominate common functions (audio, climate control), and the XLE's standard 7-inch touchscreen has large icons and responds quickly.

Getting in/getting out

5
The doors are large yet light, and reasonable seat and doorsill heights make for easy access. The rear headliner-mounted grab handles further aid exit when faced with tight parking situations.

Driving position

4.5
The Camry is within fractions of an inch in terms of interior space/room versus its closest rivals, with a few measurements exceeding theirs. It might be classified as a midsize car, but the Camry looks and feels larger inside.

Roominess

5
The thin windshield pillars and low side glass give an airy feeling. The rear view is aided by a large, standard backup camera. The shape of the hood can make it difficult to gauge the front corners, though, and blind-spot monitoring and lane departure warning are optional.

Quality

4.5
Among its peers, the Camry has better than average build quality, with tight seams, solid-closing doors, good paint, and not a single misaligned or squeaky panel inside. It feels more substantial than most at this price.

Utility

4
Cargo capacity is about average compared to that of other midsize sedans, but the Camry's thoughtful interior storage solutions ensure a place for all of your personal items.

Small-item storage

4.5
There are plenty of places to store your personal items thanks to the Camry's large door pockets with bottleholders, a generous glovebox, a deep console bin and numerous cubbies (one with a wireless charging pad).

Cargo space

4
The Camry's 15.4-cubic-foot trunk is about average for the class, but it gets points for having a wide and low opening and remote releases for the 60/40-split folding rear seats.

Child safety seat accommodation

3.5
A rear-facing child seat will fit in back with ease, but the fixed rear headrests make it difficult to properly secure a front-facing child seat.

Technology

4
The Camry's Entune infotainment system is beginning to show its age in terms of appearance, but when it comes to operation it meets all expectations.

Audio & navigation

4
The infotainment screen isn't as sharp or modern as other systems, but navigation input is reasonably easy. The menu structure is intuitive, and operation is as easy as that of competitors.

Voice control

4
Voice recognition is accurate, rarely requiring you to repeat commands. Return prompts from the system offer helpful assistance, too.

2017 Camry XSE V6
John Smith,08/17/2016
So far I love this car! Very well made, no rattles, Quiet. Great acceleration. Not to impressed with xm or the voice commands but I may not know fully how to use it yet. This model is fully loaded and I can't think of anything else I would want. Oh yeah, the led headlights are incredible! Also led high beams and auto high beams and driving lights. I do wish they had continued the led's in the back. And I think all Camrys have (real transmissions) not those CVT's I hate those.
New 2017 Toyota Camry LE
Stephanie,10/30/2016
I owned a 2005 Toyota Camry LE. It was so reliable that my kids called it OLD FAITHFUL. Basicly it was maintenance free. I only did oil change, tire and battery change on it in the past 11.5 years. If it wasn't due to an accident that required expensive body work, I definately will keep it running. In comparison, the new 2017 Toyota LE did not change that much. Things I like better: back cemera, modern body shape, touch screen, roomy glove compartment with a lock, USB plug. Things I don't like: insulation is not good, wind sound louder; body construction feels not as solid as 2005 model, big gaps at all outside metal pieces; the car still moves a little without parking brake on when you switch to park (giving you scary feelings). Overall, it is a great car.
2017 Camry XLE, Very nice car with poor GPS App
Harry,09/21/2016
Solid, comfortable, quiet, feels like a luxury car. My car does not have integrated GPS. The only GPS app compatible for this car is Scout GPS Link which works poorly. I ignore it and use portable GPS or Google Map in my cell phone.
Just 1110 miles so far.
Camry Owner,04/10/2017
Just bought this car 3 weeks ago, now with 1110 miles when ABS, traction control and check brake light came on. Took it to dealer, chief technician insisted on "turning the rotor" since it showed signs of warpage due to heat. I insisted on replacement, along with new pads and brake control module which probably caused this problem. After demanding to speak to service manager, they decided to do as I asked and replaced all 4 rotos and pads on all 4 corners but, not the module. Now, Monday following repair, drove 30 yards to end of street, all the previous brake warning lights returned! So, off to dealership we go in the morning to see ehat else it the problem...can't be the brand new rotors or pads, only thing left is the brake control module that I insisted they replace in the first place. I was a Cadillac technician at dealership, I know how they work. UPDATE, APR, 2018. Traded the car in for poor support. Bought a brand new 2017 not long after the first review. Pretty much the same car with issues getting in & out of the driver's side. I AM Japanese, 5'-10" and I can not see any way for me to get in & out without hitting my knee on the steering wheel or hitting my head on roof line. Head lights are a joke. After having HID in my 2016 Tundra, these lights are dingy yellow and visibility poor on a clear night. At the LEAST Toyota could do us to upgrade new vehicles to minimum LED lights.

2017 Toyota Camry video

JOSH SADLIER: This is automotive editor Josh Sadlier with an Edmunds Expert Rundown of the 2017 Toyota Camry. Now, if our calculations are correct, this is year seven for the current Toyota Camry. And we've already seen the 2018 Toyota Camry, the next generation car, which debuted at the Detroit Auto Show. But don't sleep on the 2017 Camry, because there's still plenty going for it. You got typical Toyota resale value, reputation for reliability. And if you step up to the V6 engine, you get the same motor that Lotus puts in the Evora sports car. It's the best V6 in the class. Actually, in our opinion, the best engine in class. Unfortunately, the four-cylinder engine that comes standard in most Camrys is less impressive. It's about 90 horsepower weaker. And it only gives you three more miles per gallon on the highway. That's 33 for the four-cylinder versus 30 for the V6. You can tell which one we'd prefer. The back seat of the current Camry has always been a strength. The bottom cushion's nice and high. Plenty of support under longer thighs. Plenty of headroom too. This is certainly a roomy family sedan, even by the standards of the class. Toyota has gone through a few different iterations of dashboard design with the Camry in recent years. And this one's a little cleaner than some of the others. Pretty straightforward in terms of the user interface. Toyota's touchscreen graphics are not the best. But in terms of usability, we're OK with it. You can see, this model has contoured steering wheel that gives you a faint whiff of sport. The bottom line, if you're shopping in this segment, is that the Camry is pretty much the oldest vehicle for 2017. But it has those typical Toyota virtues and it might be all you need.

Should I lease or buy a 2017 Toyota Camry?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
