2015 Toyota Camry Gets Thumbs Up from Consumer Reports


Read more

The Toyota Camry received a significant makeover for the 2015 model year and the folks from Consumer Reports were among the first to have a contact with the revised lineup of America’s best-selling car.

CR's Tom Mutchler says the aesthetic makeover of the Toyota Camry makes it sportier and sleeker, which means a lot for a sedan that has never been exciting in terms of styling – on the contrary. Still, the changes aren’t radical and will likely boost the Camry’s appeal among most types of buyers.

A slightly refined interior with added standard features and two new grades complete the changes, as the Camry continues to be offered with the same engine lineup as before: a 178hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder, a 268hp 3.5-liter V6 and a 200hp four-cylinder hybrid.

Move past the break to find out which one is the right choice for the Camry from the review.
