Exterior

Toyota asserts that the current-generation Camry has crisper, bolder, more upscale designing than its precursor although its appearance has actually not altered substantially. With a 107.1-inch wheelbase and determining 189.2 inches long on the whole, the Camry has to do with the same dimension as the Honda Accord; however the Accord has been revamped for the 2003 model year. The sporty SE sedan features fog lights, a rear spoiler and also a black grille with chrome trim.

The Accord comes as a sports car and also a sedan, yet the Camry is offered in four-door form only. Toyota's Camry Solara sports car and also convertible have different styling compared to the regular Camry and also are treated as different models.

Interior

Interior room in the Camry is enough for 4 grownups and also acceptable for five, and also the driver's seat has enough fore/aft traveling to suit high as well as brief people. Common 60/40-split back seatbacks supplement the tons volume of the trunk, which holds 16.7 cubic feet of freight.

Extra equipment on the XLE model consists of power front seats, warmed mirrors, automatic environment control, an engine immobilizer/alarm, keyless access and a rear sunshade. The sportier SE sedan obtains special sport textile upholstery, brushed chrome inside trim, a leather-wrapped gearshift bar as well as sport assesses.

Under the Hood

Toyota's 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine generates 157 horsepower as well as groups with either a four-speed-automatic or five-speed-manual transmission. The 192-hp, 3.0-liter V-6 power plant includes the automated transmission just.

Security

Side-impact air bags for the pole positions and also curtain-type air bags are typical in the XLE. The front air bags release in three stages, which depends upon collision conditions. Antilock brakes are conventional on the XLE as well as on V-6-equipped models, as well as they are readily available as an alternative on the four-cylinder LE as well as SE sedans.

Driving Impressions

If the Camry has actually been slammed for anything in the past, it's been bland designing. Most Camry consumers aren't looking for showy appearances yet instead Toyota's reputation for integrity, premium quality and also superb resale worth in its versions.

All the desirable Camry features are right here; if anything, they are better compared to ever. Proprietors still get a happily comfy ride, enough interior room, blissful quietness and fairly energised efficiency. Velocity reaches well past the appropriate mark with the four-cylinder engine, which is nearly as quiet as the V-6.

Only a little charge in flight comfort appears in the stylish SE, which guarantees a little tauter handling than various other Camry versions; but the distinctions are less than dramatic. A manual-transmission Camry performs admirably, and also its lever clicks crisply with the equipments without a care.
