2007 Toyota Camry Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By KBB.com Editors


Largely due to its solid reputation for quality and reliability, Toyota's mid-size Camry has been the best-selling car in America for seven of the past eight years. But it has also been less than exciting, so Toyota decided the best way to keep it on top was to broaden the appeal of its all-new 2007 Camry by improving its styling, performance and dynamics. Its curvier, though still conservative design provides more real and perceived room inside, and its steering, braking and handling are improved with a ride tuned toward comfort (although in the sportier SE the tuning is biased more toward crisper handling response). Engine choices are an updated 158-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder or a new 268-horsepower 3.5-liter V6.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you want a safe choice of a much-improved but still conservative mainstream mid-size Japanese family sedan, the new Toyota Camry is for you.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If you want something less conservative and more distinctive or an equivalent domestic sedan, you may prefer the new Ford Fusion or Chevrolet Malibu.

What's New for 2007

2007 Camry sedans are available in five distinct flavors: price-leader CE, upmarket LE, top-grade XLE, sporty SE and Hybrid. The well-equipped Hybrid, available in mid-2006, couples an efficient 147-horsepower Atkinson-cycle version of the same four-cylinder engine to a 45-horsepower electric motor driving through a Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) for 43-miles per gallon city and 37 highway.

Driving It Driving Impressions

The new Camry drives much like the previous one, only better. The base CE tends toward soft, but the LE and XLE are crisper and more athletic than their 2006 equivalents. Most fun to drive, at least on smooth roads, is the lower and stiffer SE sport model, which has added structural bracing, firmer springs, shock absorbers, bushings and anti-roll bars, better steering feel and even an underbody aerodynamic treatment for enhanced high-speed stability. The upgraded four-cylinder engine provides adequate power with good fuel economy, while the muscular V6 is a powerhouse, up 58 horses from last year's 3.3-liter, good for zero to 60-miles per hour bursts in less than seven seconds.

Favorite Features

Plasmacluster Ionizer HVAC
According to Toyota the dual-zone automatic climate system standard on the XLE and Hybrid reduces airborne odors, mold spores, microbes, fungi, germs and bacteria inside the cabin by creating positive and negative ions that seek out and surround them.

Star Safety System
The standard integrated braking system includes ABS, Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA). Seven airbags are also standard, but Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) with traction control is optional.
