2019 Toyota Camry Overview

The Toyota Camry, a midsize sedan that traditionally sells in huge numbers, started to slip in the face of increased competition from crossovers and SUVs. That’s why the 2018 Camry is barely recognizable–even though it features the same emphasis on reliability, safety, and affordability as before. The 2019 Camry carries over unchanged from its bold 2018 redesign.

The Camry delivers an eye-catching, sophisticated design. For example, look at the subtle flare of the wheel arches. For a more aggressive look, check out the XSE trim, which gets touches such as quad exhaust tips and a different front end.

The Camry comes equipped with a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine rated for 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. In the XSE trim level, this engine gets a bump to 206 hp and 186 lb-ft. The XSE and XLE trims are available with a 3.5-liter V6 that makes 301 hp and 267 lb-ft. All Camry models come with an 8-speed automatic transmission with a manual shift mode and front-wheel drive (FWD). EPA estimates are competitive for the class. With the base engine, expect 29 mpg city, 41 highway, and 34 combined. The optional V6 engine is rated for 22 city, 33 highway, 26 combined.

The cabin design is more upscale than you might expect, and there are plenty of features, even in the base L trim. With six trim levels and plenty of option packages, customizing a Camry can get confusing quickly. Every Camry includes remote keyless entry, and push-button start is available on the LE trim and up. Cloth seats come standard in L and LE trims, the SE trim gets synthetic leather, and XLE and XSE get heated leather. Every trim level but L offers either a moonroof or a panoramic glass moonroof. Wireless device charging is available or included on all but the L trim.

Every Camry features the Toyota Entune infotainment system with a 7- or 8-inch touchscreen. The base system includes six speakers and supports AM/FM radio, Bluetooth, Siri Eyes Free, Amazon Alexa, and Apple CarPlay. Available upgrades on all but the base L trim include HD Radio, SiriusXM satellite radio, and a Wi-Fi hot spot. A 9-speaker audio system and navigation are available with XLE and XSE trims.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) awards the 2019 Camry a 5-star overall rating. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) hasn’t yet evaluated the 2019 Camry. The 2018 model earned the coveted Top Safety Pick+ designation. Every Camry features a reversing camera and the Toyota Safety Sense P package, which includes forward-collision avoidance, lane-departure warning, and adaptive cruise control. Options include a blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, a 360-degree camera, and a 10-inch head-up display (HUD).

The Camry is a great choice for a midsize sedan despite its unfamiliar look. Owners of older Camry models can rest assured that Toyota still has the Camry’s priorities in order.
