Looks/Style Ranked 1998 Toyota Camry LE V6 worse.
"I like the headlight & taillight design better comparatively and just the styling of the car is more appealing to the eye. "
Would Buy Ranked 1998 Toyota Camry LE V6 better.
"I would buy the Camry for two reasons. Reliable and dependable. Honda cars are good too but when it comes down to the moment of truth, toyota stands out on that. so I would always choose a Toyota over Honda if I ever fall into that scene again. Hondas have better engines but Toyota has better overall quality of the build. Toyotas are value for money, to me atleast!"

Value Ranked 1999 Toyota Camry better.
"Newer model but very similar car."
