Which Model Year of the Toyota Camry Is Best?

The 2011 Toyota Camry was the final model of a generation that began with the 2007 Camry. There are few differences between the 2007 model and the 2008 and 2009 Camry. For 2010, Toyota replaced the five-speed manual and automatic transmissions with six-speed versions. Camry base and LE trims gained an available audio system, and electronic stability control became standard. The 2010 Camry also received an exterior styling refresh, and it gained a stronger and more fuel-efficient base engine. There were no major changes for 2011, so we recommend opting for the less expensive and relatively similar 2010 Camry.
