Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Cars.com's Joe Bruzek takes a look at the 2010 Toyota Camry's iPod integration.

Vehicle Overview
Now in its fourth model year, the current Toyota Camry received a number of mechanical and styling tweaks as part of a mid-cycle update. Chief among them is a larger four-cylinder drivetrain, more standard safety features and updated styling with more differentiation for the Camry Hybrid.

Trim levels include the base model as well as the LE, sport-tuned SE and upscale XLE. The Camry Hybrid is covered separately in Cars.com's Research section.

Camry competitors include the Honda Accord, Nissan Altima and Chevrolet Malibu.


Exterior
Exterior changes are hardly radical, as the car's face looks essentially the same, albeit with shapelier crossbars on the grille and a more defined air dam across the bumper. In back, the white taillight strips have been moved a few inches down.

Base and LE models have steel wheels with plastic covers, while the XLE gets 16-inch alloy wheels. The Camry SE has 17-inch wheels, a mesh-like grille and additional lower body cladding.


Interior
The cabin carries over largely untouched. A new optional stereo has USB compatibility for enhanced integration with iPods and other MP3 players. Express up/down operation for all windows, a feature typically reserved for premium cars, is now standard. Uplevel features on well-optioned models include leather upholstery, heated power seats, dual-zone automatic climate control and a navigation system.

Under the Hood
A new 2.5-liter four-cylinder is standard; it makes 169 horsepower in the base, LE and ...

Uplevel features on well-optioned models include leather upholstery, heated power seats, dual-zone automatic climate control and a navigation system.

Under the Hood
A new 2.5-liter four-cylinder is standard; it makes 169 horsepower in the base, LE and XLE; in the SE it's tuned for 179 hp. Last year's 2.4-liter four-cylinder made 158 hp regardless of trim. The new engine uses a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, combinations that yield gas mileage improvements of 1 to 2 mpg. A 268-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 and six-speed automatic are optional; its mileage remains the same.

Safety
Standard safety features include four-wheel-disc antilock brakes, side curtain airbags, side-impact airbags for the front seats, dual front airbags and a driver's knee airbag. Traction control and an electronic stability system — previously optional — are also standard.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
