               Overview

Thanks to its smooth ride, snappy, exciting engine options, and composed handling attributes, the 2024 Toyota Camry is an excellent car to drive. Fast shifts are also initiated by the improved transmission. Of all the Toyota household name cars, the Camry may be the most identifiable. Popular midsize sedan, the 2024 Toyota Camry, comes with both conventional gas and hybrid engine options. The Camry is renowned for its roomy cabin, which accommodates passengers in both rows and has a sizable trunk.

The current generation of Camry will not be produced after this year. The 2025 model year is anticipated to have a complete overhaul. It makes reasonable that some customers could be tempted to wait. However, in comparison to the Honda Accord and Hyundai Sonata, this 2024 Camry is still a good choice for a midsize sedan.

Engine Performance

Although the base four-cylinder engine has a smooth eight-speed automatic transmission, its acceleration figures are underwhelming. An even less potent version of that engine is combined with a battery and two electric motors in the hybrid trims, making the resulting car no more thrilling to drive than the standard powerplant.

Engine

For the majority of driving conditions, the standard engine of the Camry has sufficient vigor. From a standstill, acceleration is mediocre, but the four-cylinder engine rarely feels underpowered. There isn’t much to complain about other than the powertrain’s tendency to drone at high speeds or when you apply a lot of pressure to the pedal. On the highway, the optional V6 offers significantly more acceleration off the line and facilitates faster overtaking and merging. The eight-speed automatic transmission in the Camry offers quick and seamless shifts, regardless of the engine you choose.

2024 Camry MPG

In the EPA tests, the entire Camry family fared incredibly well, and in our actual highway testing, a four-cylinder model excelled. The four-cylinder LE and SE models are the most fuel-efficient non-hybrid Camry variants, with EPA estimations of 28 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the interstate; the base LE hybrid had ratings of 51 mpg in the city and 53 mpg on the highway. However, the higher trims of the hybrid forgo some efficiency in favor of luxury; V-6-powered vehicles were rated at up to 33 mpg on the highway and 22 mpg in the city.

In highway test, a four-cylinder Camry SE achieved 45 mpg, surpassing its own EPA rating by 6 mpg and becoming the most fuel-efficient nonhybrid vehicle we have ever evaluated. In our tests, it even outperformed the Camry XLE hybrid by 1 mpg.

Interior Comfort and Space

Regardless of the trim level, the Toyota Camry’s centerconsole and instrument panel have the same basic layout, which is good if you enjoy its many buttons and slightly curved lines. Nevertheless, there is a startling difference in the quality of the cabin materials between the base SE and the top-tier XSE Hybrid, even for a car with nine trim levels that are only $8,000 apart.

Trunk

The Camry is suitable for a variety of drivers, even on lengthy journeys, thanks to its roomy, comfy seats and smooth ride. When you combine that with a strong, user-friendly climate control system that can efficiently chill the cabin even in temperatures in the triple digits the Camry offers a comfortable ride for all passengers.

The Camry’s greatest shortcoming in this regard is how much outside noise it lets in. When you accelerate, there will be a significant engine buzz, and at freeway speeds, you will noticeably hear wind and road noise.

Interior Technology and Infotainment

With its big, obvious gauges and straightforward, well labeledbuttons, the user interface is not confusing. Even drivers who are not tech-savvy will find them to be rather intuitive. The passenger may need to extend a little to reach the radio volume and tuning knobs, but they are compact and easy for the driver to reach.

Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa are among the smartphone connection options available for the Camry. The infotainment touchscreens, which are available in both 7-inch and 9-inch sizes, are both simple to read and use. Higher trims come with the option of built-in navigation if desired. All passengers on the trip should have enough of energy thanks to the three USB ports and the possibility to add a wireless charger.

Every Camry has Toyota Safety Sense 2.5+ installed. The excellent array of standard driver assistance functions includes lane keeping aid, automated emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control.
