2008 Toyota Camry Solara Overview

Toyota made no changes to the Camry Solara for 2008, fueling rumors that this will be the last year for the well-built but somewhat dated sport coupe. Like many vehicles in Toyota's lineup, the Camry Solara has lots of fans, who praise its smooth, solid ride, its mechanical refinement, its many safety features, and its comfortable and quiet interior. But other drivers and reviewers consider the Solara underwhelming in both power and design, especially when compared to sport coupes offered by competitive automakers.

Like the previous year's model, the 2008 Camry Solara does not lack for features. Antilock brakes, an advanced airbag system, a direct tire-pressure monitoring system, remote keyless entry, integrated fog lamps, high solar-energy-absorbing glass, and an AM/FM stereo system with an in-dash six-disc CD changer are just some of the Camry Solara's standard features, while options include Bluetooth and a voice-activated navigation system.

The Camry Solara borrows its underpinnings and basic design from the standard Camry sedan, but adds a sleeker roofline, a tighter suspension, and a more responsive steering system. Drivers can choose from SE, Sport, and SLE trim versions, as well as coupe and convertible models. The convertible features a power-retractable fabric top with a glass rear window.

Power for the 2008 Camry Solara comes in the form of a 157-horsepower, 2.4-liter VVT-i four-cylinder engine or a 210-horsepower, 3.3-liter VVT-i V6. Both engines link to either a five-speed manual overdrive transmission or a five-speed automatic.
