Which Camry does Edmunds recommend?
Edmunds' Expert Review
Overall rating4.5 / 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.
2017 Toyota Camry configurations
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.

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.

2017 Toyota Camry Expert Rundown
Looking for a great sedan with a solid reputation for durability and reliability? The 2017 Toyota Camry might be a good match. Here's a quick rundown of what we like, what we don't and the bottom line from the Edmunds editors.

- Safety Connect

- Blind-Spot Monitor
- Alerts you if there's a vehicle lurking in your blind spot, as well as if one is approaching when you're backing up.
2017 Toyota Camry for Sale
Popularity of a particular consumer item in America and the quality of said consumer item don't always correlate very well. Whether you're talking about hamburgers or watches, cheap often wins the day, but that's not the case with the 2017 Toyota Camry. This is a best-selling sedan and and it's also one of best.
This largely comes down to how well the Camry goes about its business. It's comfortable to drive every day and has a big backseat that will carry some friends to lunch or haul your family across the country. The Camry is also easy to see out of, can be fitted with a helpful array of technology features and boasts excellent safety scores. Toyota even offers two distinct versions of the Camry, the regular LE and XLE and the sport-themed SE and XSE, to better satisfy a range of driving preferences.
Even if you go with the SE or XSE, the Camry isn't the sportiest sedan in the segment. The Camry's arch-rival, the Honda Accord, is a bit livelier, as are the Ford Fusion and Mazda 6. Nor does the Camry have the lock on value as the Hyundai Sonata and Kia Optima are impressively well-rounded for the price. But overall we think the Camry deserves a look thanks to its overall level of refinement, features and comfort.
Powertrains and Performance
Every 2017 Toyota Camry trim comes standard with front-wheel drive, a six-speed automatic transmission and a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 178 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque.
In Edmunds testing, a Camry LE with the standard engine went from zero to 60 mph in 8.3 seconds, which is a bit slower than average for a four-cylinder midsize sedan.
The XSE and XLE trims also offer a 3.5-liter V6 rated at 268 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque. An XLE V6 sprinted to 60 mph in just 6.2 seconds in our testing, a quick result for this class of vehicle.
EPA-estimated fuel economy for the four-cylinder engine wasn't available as of this writing but last year's Camry was rated at 28 mpg combined (25 mpg city/35 mpg highway), a few mpg behind rivals like the Honda Accord or Kia Optima.
The V6's EPA-estimated fuel economy of 24 mpg combined (21 mpg city/30 mpg highway) is about average compared to rival V6 engines.
Every 2017 Toyota Camry comes standard with antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, front and rear side airbags, front knee airbags, full-length side curtain airbags and a rearview camera.
The XSE and XLE can optionally be equipped with a blind-spot warning system that's paired with a rear cross-traffic alert system. The Technology package adds a lane departure warning system and a forward collision mitigation system that warns the driver of an imminent collision and automatically applies the brakes if necessary.
Optional only on the XLE is Safety Connect, which adds automatic collision notification, an emergency assist button and a stolen-vehicle locator.
In Edmunds brake testing, a Camry LE stopped from 60 mph in an impressively short 116 feet. However, a pair of XLE V6 test cars stopped from 60 mph in 127 and 129 feet, which is on the long side for this class.
In government crash testing, the Camry received five out of five stars for overall crash protection, with four stars for frontal-impact protection and five stars for side-impact protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Camry its best possible rating of "Good" in its moderate-overlap and small-overlap frontal-offset impact tests. The Camry also earned a "Good" score in the side-impact, roof-strength and head restraint/seatbelts (whiplash protection) tests.
Midsize sedans make up one of the most competitive vehicle classes in the U.S., but the 2017 Toyota Camry continues a tradition of quality, reliability, comfort and affordability that has made it a best-seller for many years. Unpretentious yet capable, the Camry may not stand out in any one area, but it does almost everything well, fulfilling the needs of a wide variety of buyers.
After a major update two years ago, the Camry remains essentially unchanged for 2017. The higher XLE and XSE trim levels now feature a standard premium infotainment and navigation system, and the Special Edition model has been dropped from the lineup.
The Camry's design is probably best described as handsome, rather than breathtaking. The last refresh gave it a low beltline for increased outward visibility and a more aggressive front-end treatment with a thin upper grille and large lower section that gets wider toward the bottom. Available LED headlights and daytime running lights not only provide better illumination but also add a touch of style.
However, the interior is where the Camry really shines. With a generous amount of headroom and legroom for front-seat occupants, the midsize Toyota also includes one of the largest rear seats in its class. And even the base models come with an array of comfort and convenience features, high-quality materials and a host of safety and technology equipment.
The standard powerplant is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 178 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque. An optional 3.5-liter V6 ups the power to 268 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque, and both engines come mated to a smooth-shifting, 6-speed electronically controlled transmission. A hybrid model with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) is also available.
The 2017 Camry, like its predecessors, is designed for a comfortable, quiet ride, whether on a daily commute in city traffic or fully loaded on a cross-country trip. Although it has no sporting pretensions, the Camry comports itself well enough on the road, handling corners in a stately but confidence-inspiring manner and delivering driver and passengers to their destination with a minimum amount of drama.
Fuel economy for the base Camry with the four-cylinder engine is rated by the EPA at 27 mpg combined (24 city/33 highway). Opting for the V6 lowers the rating to 24 mpg combined (21 city/30 highway).
Trim levels for 2017 include the already well-equipped base Camry LE, the somewhat sportier SE and XSE models and the luxury-oriented XLE. Whatever your particular needs, let Edmunds help you choose the right 2017 Toyota Camry at the right price.

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.
