2010 toyota Camry Se

2010 toyota Camry Se: The Toyota Camry is the best-selling car in the U.S. Its record of dependability, security as well as efficiency has made it a favorite of cars and truck consumers searching for sensible transportation. Not is it a clear section leader, though, as various other midsize cars are testing the Camry on a number of fronts, and its strong dependability reveals indications of fading.

I drove the SE variation, which tries to defy the Camry's functional, uninteresting picture with a higher-output four-cylinder, stronger suspension and also cosmetic add-ons. Face to face, I was stunned by exactly how little it considered the SE package to truly boost the base Camry's boring behavior. In fact, I favor the SE's sporting good looks to numerous various other midsize sedans, which overall is mostly a dull segment. Although the SE gets by with its appearance, it isn't really a full package because there isn't much incentive in the fun-to-drive division.

The Camry lineup starts with the base model and offers LE, SE, XLE as well as Crossbreed trim levels.

Exactly what's Altered for 2010

The Camry has stayed a hot seller also without a couple of essential affordable attributes, which have been included for 2010: a basic digital stability system, six-speed transmission as well as optional USB input for controlling, as well as playing, iPods via the stereo. For an assessment of the USB combination, which I was not a fan of, see the video to the right. Compare the 2010 design to the 2009 variation right here. Opponents like the 2010 Hyundai Sonata, 2010 Honda Accord, 2010 Mazda6 and 2010 Chevrolet Malibu have actually incorporated one or more of those essential functions for a couple of design years.

Base designs have new front styling, consisting of a redesigned grille with chrome trim and brand-new, larger fronts lights. The 2010's nose job is an improvement from the 2009's forgettable front designing. SE versions obtain a blacked-out grille and smoked-headlight-housing therapy. The SE is better-looking than a normal Camry, thanks to improvements like a reduced front looter, much more aggressive side sills, haze lights, 17-inch five-spoke wheels and also twin tailpipes with a black reduced bumper.

2 new four-cylinder engines are available. For the first time on a Camry, they team with a six-speed transmission to assist improve fuel economy; a six-speed handbook is standard. The SE utilizes an extra effective engine than base, LE and also XLE models; it makes 179 horse power rather than 169 hp. The SE makes 21 more horse power than the 2009 SE without hurting gas mileage. In fact, gas mileage has really boosted 1 mpg in city and also freeway scores. I balanced 29 mpg throughout a 400-mile week of mainly freeway driving. That's not far from the automatic's 32 mpg freeway rating. Both four-cylinders are ranked with mileage of 22/32 mpg city/highway; the handbook is rated at 22/33 mpg.

SE, the "Flashy" Camry

The SE deserts the Camry's traditional soft, unobtrusive ride high quality with a sporting activity suspension, resulting in a flight that's remarkably tight for a Camry. It's by no means teeth-jarring, but there's absolutely a tight sensation that can postpone typical Camry purchasers. When pushed right into edges, the Camry leans and also understeers, not feeling like a confident entertainer. Special to the SE is a 179-hp version of Toyota's 2.5-liter four-cylinder. When teamed with the new six-speed transmission, this engine made the SE a peppy bundle; a 268-hp V-6 is optional. Gear changes were smooth throughout acceleration with very little engine sound also during heavy acceleration.

A sporty Camry is sort of like the requisite "bad-boy" participant of a young boy band. Regardless of just how aggressive the effort, he's still in a young boy band. Furthermore, the SE can't escape its Camry origins. Camry followers might be drawn to the SE as a sportier option, but for the differentiating lover, the 2009 Mazda6 provides a better-executed sport package.

Inside and Freight

Below's where the Camry's comfort-focused roots are an advantage to the SE: The front and back seats are incredibly comfortable. There readies back sustain with the eight-way power-adjustable seats, and also soft seat paddings made my lengthy drives workable, despite the SE's tight suspension. For a sporting activity model, the SE's pole positions don't have aggressive side reinforcing to keep you from moving about, yet carving corners isn't really the Camry's strong point, so it's not a deal-breaker.

When you go with the SE you lose the folding rear seat alternative; in its location is a facility pass-through. The folding seats as well as a half-foot of trunk space are compromised for a rear suspension brace that's meant to boost handling. With my marginal cargo-carrying needs the big trunk appropriated enough without the folding rear seat. Those with even more demanding cargo needs, specifically longer things, need to prevent the SE or XLE, which additionally doesn't consist of a folding backseat.

Attributes and Prices

For $22,165, the SE includes every one of the suspension, engine and also outside attributes-- minus the spoiler, a $200 alternative. As examined, our SE provided at $27,725, not including the $750 destination fee. Alternatives on our examination cars and truck consisted of automatic transmission, navigation system with backup camera, USB input, Bluetooth, JBL stereo, moonroof and also wise key system with push-button beginning.

A base Camry starts at $19,395, so the SE bundle is a cheap method to liven it up. A base Mazda6 personifies a sporty nature, though, and begins at $18,450.


The 2010 Camry made Excellent rankings-- the best rating-- in frontal and also side collision examinations by the Insurance Institute for Freeway Safety and security; it scored Minimal in back defense, which is why the Camry does not snatch the IIHS' Leading Safety Pick honor. The 2009 Honda Accord and also 2010 Ford Combination earn the designation.

For a complete checklist of the Camry's safety features, see below.


The Camry has shown subsiding reliability in current model years with typical total scores by Consumer Records and a brief spell below par for a specific drivetrain. Currently, there typically aren't any type of forecasts for the 2010.

Noteworthy in this section is the 2010 Ford Fusion's anticipated top dependability rating for front-wheel-drive 4- and six-cylinder models. The Honda Accord's scores are above standard for four- and also six-cylinder versions, but they're not as high as the Fusion's.

Camry on the market

Shoppers need to drive both the Camry SE and various other Camry trims to see if the sport-tuned suspension is too strong for daily commutes. There are a great deal of excellent midsize sedans available. While the 2010 Camry steps up its game, consumers currently have more solid options than ever.

In recent years, the competition has overtaken the Camry while its reliability has actually slipped a little bit, making the Camry more of an average choice compared to a class-leading midsize car.
