It's stylish, well-built, and has a proven track-record for durability and safety. My long-time mechanic recommended this make and model.
Spacious, drives well, very comfortable and looks good
Camry offers all the advantages of a luxury vehicle without the luxury price. Am in sales and this vehicle gives the right message to my clients: easy to work with, successful sales person but not going to take advantage of me to afford that expensive car payment.
The 2012 Toyota Camry is classified as a mid-size car that offers fantastic fuel economy and a smooth ride, coupled with the model's well-known reliability. Completely redesigned for this model year, the Camry's interior features high-quality improvements such as front and rear seats that are spacious enough to seat five tall adults in comfort. A soft-touch dashboard and the optional Entune multimedia system, which syncs the control of apps with a smartphone, offers welcome touches of luxury and connectivity. The 2012 Camry also includes standard features such as a USB port, six-speaker audio system, 15.4 cubic feet of trunk space, Bluetooth phone connectivity, and a six-speed automatic transmission with manual mode.
Manufactured since 1982 by Japanese car-maker Toyota, the Camry nameplate has undergone significant changes through the years. The 2012 Toyota Camry is a reflection of the vehicle's continual shift from a compact car during its early years to a mid-size offering that has made it popular with so many American families. As part of the seventh generation of Camrys, the XV50 model made its debut at the 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race in August 2011.
Designed as a family car with an emphasis on comfort, the 2012 Toyota Camry also offers a surprisingly peppy performance. The Toyota Star Safe System offers an extensive array of features including ten airbags for side, front, rear, knee, and curtain protection; traction control; Smart Stop technology; vehicle stability control; crumple zones in the front and rear; and front seats that are designed to reduce the likelihood of whiplash. Its four-wheel anti-lock brake system (ABS) is outfitted with electronic brake-force distribution.
For 13 out of the past 14 years, the Toyota Camry has been America's top selling passenger car. Based on multiple crucial factors, including cost to own and performance, JD Power and Associates provided the 2012 Toyota Camry with a score of 8.7 out of 10. US News & World Report ranked the vehicle as number four in affordable midsize cars during the 2012 model year.
As a mid-sized car, the 2012 Toyota Camry is designed to be a family sedan rather than a high-performance machine. While the vehicle's performance mirrors this goal, it still provides a decent performance that is ideal for commuting and traveling.
The 2012 Toyota Camry is available as either a 2.5-liter four-cylinder capable of producing 178 horsepower or a 3.5-liter V6 with 268 horsepower. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the four-cylinder Toyota Camry gets 25 miles to the gallon during city driving and 35 on the highway. This makes the vehicle the most fuel-efficient gasoline non-hybrid car in its class. The Camry's V6 engine gets 21 miles to the gallon in the city and 30 during highway driving. While the four-cylinder Camry offers respectable power, the six-cylinder version zooms from zero to 60 MPH in 7.8 seconds.
The redesign that the Toyota Camry underwent in 2012 elevated its comfort and style. Some of the features that come standard on the SE model include:
