Cars.com's Dave Thomas takes a look at the 2011 Toyota Camry. It competes with the Hyundai Sonata and Honda Accord.
<v Narrator>Cars.com Auto Review. Hi, I'm Dave Thomas with Cars.com, and this is a 2011 Toyota Camry. One of the best selling cars for years. Now it's still a really comfortable commuter, but some chinks in the armor are starting to show.
When it comes to performance the Camry's definitely not a sports sedan. Its breaking is really soft and it doesn't handle very well either. What you're really getting is a comfortable car, and if you get the V6 option, it's one of the smoothest out there and it comes standard with a six speed automatic. The Camry's comfort definitely translates inside as well. You have these wide comfortable seats up front, which are great for long commutes. The styling is very simple too, so even though this car hasn't been radically resigned since 2006, it doesn't feel outdated. A spacious comfortable back seat has always been one of the more appealing parts of the Camry. As you can see here, I have plenty of room. However, the rest of the segment is caught up in backseat space, mainly the Hyundai Sonata, which in a shoot out that we conducted at Cars.com, beat the Camry and the Accord. At 40 and a half cubic feet you could fit plenty of golf clubs in the trunk of the Camry, however the Sonata's is two cubic feet bigger, and that's one of the problems. While the camera is still a good car, the competition is even better, but for right now, the Camry is actually more expensive. <v Narrator>For more car related news, go to cars.com or our blog KickingTires.net.
