2017 Toyota Camry Buyer's Guide

#1 of 11 in Midsize Sedan Sales | Next


Starting Price: $23,905 | Build

Above Average: Reputation, resale value, comfort, ease

Below Average: Interior style is a bit dated compared to newer competitors

Consensus: Works like a charm, sells like hotcakes 


The best-selling car in the country is good-looking, quiet and reliable.

The midsize sedan segment's star student gets extra credit after recent updates -- stylish new sheet metal, interior upgrades, more engaging driving dynamics and a new special edition -- with more audio and multimedia options for 2017.

But the priorities that got it to the head of the class remain uncorrupted. The Toyota Camry is still a comfortable midsize sedan backed by an unassailable reputation for quality and value.

In the Driver's Seat

From our 2017 Toyota Camry review: "Thanks to revised suspension tuning that came with the 2015 revamp, the latest Camry sedan delivers a slightly livelier driving experience. But don't confuse the Camry for a corner-carver: Its emphasis remains quiet and comfortable road manners."

Camry or Camry Hybrid?

Lower gas prices haven’t only decreased at-the-pump savings for the Camry Hybrid relative to its gas-only counterpart, by extension they’ve also negatively impacted its resale values. According to our most recent calculations, the Camry Hybrid makes financial sense only for serious road warriors driving much more than 15,000 miles per year. But if tailpipe emissions are your key concern, the 40-mpg Camry Hybrid is as appealing as it ever was. 

Owner's Advice

Camry owner and visitor Terry is happy with the Camry, saying: "I must say this a very good car with a few minor issues. I love the look of the car and the way it drives. Gas mileage is excellent (better than my 1993 Corolla) with an overall avg of 30.4 mpg but I have gotten millage as high as 34 mpg." But he does have a couple of gripes: "My car came with Bridgestone tires which are kind of loud...My other issue is the AC. If you switch from outside air to recirculate in the wrong way, you will get a musty smell." Read more consumer reviews of the Toyota Camry.

First Look: 2018 Toyota Camry

The totally redesigned eighth-generation 2018 Toyota Camry is roomier inside and more fuel-efficient. It has new engines, a new suspension, and an expanded list of safety features, including the Toyota Safety Sense suite, standard on all models. The new Camry is expected to go on sale in late summer. 


Build and Price

Opening at just under $24,000, every model of the 2017 Toyota Camry (and Camry Hybrid) is the same price as it was last year, but still carries the highest starting price in the segment. It commands a $715 premium over the base version of the Honda Accord, roughly $1,100 over the Mazda6 and more than $1,300 over the Hyundai Sonata. A fully loaded Camry XLE runs about $35,000. Build and price a 2017 Toyota Camry right here at to unlock its Fair Purchase Price, 5-Year Cost to Own and more.
