2008 Toyota Camry Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By KBB.com Editors


Largely due to its solid reputation for quality and reliability, Toyota's midsize Camry has been the best-selling car in America for eight of the past nine years. A thorough makeover last year enhances the Camry's ability to keep its throne, although the new Honda Accord looks to be a keen competitor. The 2008 Toyota Camry is the most curvaceous model to date, with an abundance of interior room and marked improvements in the areas of steering, braking, handling and ride comfort (although in the sportier SE the tuning is biased more toward crisper handling response). Engine choices include a 158-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder or a 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 midsize Japanese family sedan, the 2008 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.

Driving It Driving Impressions

The 2008 Toyota Camry drives much like most family sedans, not too sporty and not too soft. The base car tends toward the soft side, but the LE and XLE are crisper and more athletic. 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 latest Toyota four-cylinder engine provides adequate power with good fuel economy, while the muscular V6 is a powerhouse, good for a zero to 60-miles-per-hour burst 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.
