2010 toyota Camry Se

2010 Toyota Camry Se: The Toyota Camry is the very successful sedan in the United States Its performance history of reliability, safety and security as well as performance has actually made it a fave of cars and truck consumers searching for useful transportation. Not is it a clear section leader, however, as other midsize cars are challenging the Camry on a number of fronts, and also its solid integrity reveals indications of fading.

I drove the SE variation, which attempts to defy the Camry's useful, unexciting image with a higher-output four-cylinder, firmer suspension as well as cosmetic attachments. In person, I was amazed by just how little it considered the SE bundle to actually improve the base Camry's plain behavior. Actually, I prefer the SE's showing off great want to several various other midsize sedans, which in its entirety is mainly a boring segment. Although the SE manages with its appearance, it isn't a total package because there isn't really much reward in the fun-to-drive division.

The Camry lineup begins with the base version as well as provides LE, SE, XLE and Crossbreed trim degrees.

Exactly what's Changed for 2010

The Camry has remained a best-seller also without a few crucial competitive functions, which have been added for 2010: a conventional electronic stability system, six-speed transmission and also optional USB input for regulating, in addition to having fun, iPods through the stereo. For an analysis of the USB integration, which I was not a follower of, see the video clip to the right. Contrast the 2010 model to the 2009 variation here. Rivals like the 2010 Hyundai Sonata, 2010 Honda Accord, 2010 Mazda6 and 2010 Chevrolet Malibu have included one or more of those essential features for a couple of model years.

Base designs have new front styling, including a redesigned grille with chrome trim and new, bigger fronts lights. The 2010's rhinoplasty is a renovation from the 2009's featureless front designing. SE versions get a blacked-out grille and also smoked-headlight-housing therapy. The SE is better-looking compared to a normal Camry, thanks to improvements like a lower front looter, much more hostile side sills, haze lights, 17-inch five-spoke wheels as well as twin tailpipes with a black lower bumper.

Two new four-cylinder engines are available. For the first time on a Camry, they team with a six-speed transmission to help enhance gas economy; a six-speed handbook is typical. The SE uses an extra powerful engine compared to base, LE as well as XLE models; it makes 179 horse power rather than 169 hp. The SE makes 21 even more horse power compared to the 2009 SE without hurting gas mileage. Actually, gas mileage has in fact improved 1 mpg in city and also freeway scores. I averaged 29 mpg throughout a 400-mile week of mainly freeway driving. That's not far from the automated's 32 mpg freeway rating. Both four-cylinders are ranked with gas mileage of 22/32 mpg city/highway; the guidebook is ranked at 22/33 mpg.

SE, the "Stylish" Camry

The SE deserts the Camry's typical soft, unobtrusive flight top quality with a sport suspension, causing a ride that's surprisingly stiff for a Camry. It's never teeth-jarring, but there's absolutely a tight feeling that could postpone typical Camry buyers. When pressed into corners, the Camry leans as well as understeers, not feeling like a positive entertainer. Distinct to the SE is a 179-hp variation of Toyota's 2.5-liter four-cylinder. When teamed with the brand-new six-speed transmission, this engine made the SE a peppy bundle; a 268-hp V-6 is optional. Gear modifications were smooth during velocity with minimal engine sound even throughout heavy velocity.

A sporty Camry is sort of like the requisite "bad-boy" participant of a kid band. No matter how aggressive the effort, he's still in a young boy band. Also, the SE can't escape its Camry roots. Camry loyalists may be attracted to the SE as a sportier alternative, but also for the discriminating lover, the 2009 Mazda6 provides a better-executed sporting activity plan.

Inside and also Freight

Here's where the Camry's comfort-focused roots are a benefit to the SE: The front and rear seats are extremely comfortable. There excels back sustain with the eight-way power-adjustable seats, and also soft seat cushions made my long drives doable, despite having the SE's tight suspension. For a sporting activity design, the SE's front seats do not have aggressive side reinforcing to maintain you from moving about, but carving edges isn't the Camry's strong suit, so it's not a deal-breaker.

When you opt for the SE you lose the folding backseat alternative; in its place is a center pass-through. The folding seats and a half-foot of trunk room are sacrificed for a rear suspension support that's planned to boost handling. With my marginal cargo-carrying requirements the huge trunk appropriated sufficient without the folding backseat. Those with more demanding freight needs, specifically longer things, should prevent the SE or XLE, which likewise doesn't consist of a folding backseat.

Functions and Pricing

For $22,165, the SE consists of all of the suspension, engine as well as exterior features-- minus the looter, a $200 choice. As evaluated, our SE listed at $27,725, not consisting of the $750 destination charge. Choices on our examination cars and truck included transmission, navigating system with backup cam, USB input, Bluetooth, JBL stereo, moonroof as well as wise vital system with push-button begin.

A base Camry begins at $19,395, so the SE plan is an inexpensive method to cheer it up. A base Mazda6 symbolizes a stylish nature, however, as well as starts at $18,450.


The 2010 Camry made Great scores-- the very best rating-- in frontal and side accident tests by the Insurance policy Institute for Highway Safety and security; it scored Limited in rear defense, which is why the Camry does not snatch the IIHS' Top Security Select honor. The 2009 Honda Accord and also 2010 Ford Fusion earn the classification.

For a complete list of the Camry's safety and security attributes, see right here.


The Camry has revealed winding down dependability in recent design years with average overall scores by Customer Reports and also a short spell below average for a particular drivetrain. Presently, there typically aren't any type of predictions for the 2010.

Noteworthy in this segment is the 2010 Ford Blend's forecasted top dependability ranking for front-wheel-drive 4- and also six-cylinder versions. The Honda Accord's scores are above standard for four- and also six-cylinder designs, but they're not as high as the Blend's.

Camry out there

Customers should drive both the Camry SE and other Camry trims to see if the sport-tuned suspension is also strong for daily commutes. There are a lot of great midsize cars out there. While the 2010 Camry steps up its game, customers currently have a lot more solid choices compared to ever before.

In recent times, the competition has overtaken the Camry while its dependability has slid a little bit, making the Camry more of an average option compared to a class-leading midsize car.
