CARS.COM — The perennially best-selling Toyota Camry returns for the 2016 model year virtually unchanged from the previous year’s redesign. So if you got hooked on the five-passenger midsize sedan’s bass-mouthed maw in 2015, it’s likely you’ll be reeled in once again. In our Car Seat Check, buried Latch anchors complicated access when installing our convertible seat, which also was the case in the model-year 2015 Camry’s Car Seat Check.
How many car seats fit in the second row? Two
What We Like
- Our infant safety seat’s thin, hooklike connectors worked better with the Latch anchors than the convertible’s chunky connectors.
- There are three top tether anchors on the rear shelf and it was easy to connect our forward-facing convertible’s tether strap.
- Our 5-foot-6 tester had enough legroom with the convertible seat in the rear-facing position.
- The stable seat belt buckle stalks will make it easier for kids to buckle up independently.
What We Don’t Like
- We had to move the front-passenger seat forward to make room for the infant seat; tester’s knees were nearly grazing the glove compartment.
- The aforementioned Latch-anchor issue made installing our convertible, with its thicker connectors, a bit of a challenge. The sedan’s buried Latch anchors complicated access.
- The fixed head restraint pushed the booster’s seatback slightly off the seat.
