2013 toyota Camry Se V6

In the majority of kinds, the Camry is a silent, smooth-riding sedan with few thrills or problems, but the 2013 SE with an uplevel V-6 showed only the Camry's problems - 2013 Toyota Camry Se V6.

The Camry was completely upgraded for the 2012 model year and continues to be relatively unmodified for 2013. You can read an evaluation of the 2012 four-cylinder and other trim levels here.


2013 Toyota Camry Se V6


Performance

At the heart of the sport-tuned SE is a 268-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine that supplies power extremely efficiently as well as fairly silently with a six-speed automatic transmission. Charging up highway on-ramps and passing at broadband are non-events with this much power at hand. However, in a fashion just like what we experienced in the 178-hp four-cylinder, the front tires can break loose under hard acceleration consequently maneuvers.

The two biggest differences between the Camry four-cylinders we've tested in the past and this SE are the evident gas mileage penalty as well as the unusual sacrifice in flight high quality.

The four-cylinder Camry is ranked 25/35/28 mpg city/highway/combined. That's behind the redesigned 2013 Honda Accord's 27/36/30 mpg, while both hang back the likewise just recently redesigned 2013 Nissan Altima's 27/38/31 mpg.

Moving up to the V-6 choice in any of these three influences gas mileage considerably, with the Camry going down to 21/31/25 mpg. The V-6 Accord is ranked 21/34/25, and the Altima is 22/31/25 mpg.

Subjectively, our editors have always found the Camry to use a silent and also comfy trip that ought to attract travelers as well as road-trippers alike. In our $26,000 Midsize Car Challenge (see the outcomes), courts scored the car well for its trip across the board, while various other competitors had inconsistent outcomes.

The SE model aims to deliver a stylish driving experience that is absolutely not present in various other Camry versions we have actually checked. The handling as well as steering are a little sharper right here, yet there was still that tire-slip problem. Likewise, a great deal of flight convenience is given up in the name of sportiness-- a sacrifice I don't think Camry buyers will wish to make.

Over highway growth joints, the SE's suspension supplied obvious jolts that ended up being an extreme aggravation on my commute. The 18-inch alloy wheels really did not assist matters. They're standard on the SE V-6, while 17s are basic on both the four-cylinder SE and also the XLE V-6.

Inside

As the competition heats up, Toyota finds itself encountering not simply Honda as well as Nissan, but also considerable entries from Hyundai, Kia, Ford and also Mazda. All generate outstanding midsize sedans, particularly in regards to their insides.

Some, like the Altima and also Hyundai Sonata, supply a similar degree of convenience as the Camry, while the brand-new Accord, Ford Blend as well as Mazda6 supply upscale insides that the Camry could not take on.

The previous-generation Camry's interior held up over time as one of the classiest in the segment, but the upgraded model appeared affordable to a number of us at the outset. That's not a good sign in an ambience where Honda needed to overhaul its last Civic a year after a total redesign thanks to comparable belief.

The problem does not come from the controls or design, however primarily the use of varied appearances along the dash, doors, armrests and also various other areas that are frequently touched by owners as well as gazed after by all.

They feel rather squishy to the touch and look excessive like plastic to the eye. Even some sewing techniques that attempt to be upscale fail here. My better half, after entering our $32,090 Camry examination car (with alternatives and destination), asked if she remained in the Corolla, the Toyota compact car that starts at fifty percent that cost.

The Camry still provides a large cabin that fits for the driver as well as passengers. Both guest and also trunk quantity-- 102.7 cubic feet and also 15.4 cubic feet, specifically-- remain in line with the rest of the class.

Security

The Camry is geared up with a basic collection of air bags as well as is a Leading Safety Choose by the Insurance Coverage Institute for Highway Security. It likewise earned a first-class general security ranking from the National Freeway Website Traffic Safety And Security Administration.

In a current Car Seat Check by Cars.com's licensed installers, the Camry scored well for fitting all kinds of child-safety seats in numerous placements, as well as for convenience of installment. You could discover all the safety-related features here.

Camry in the marketplace

As a four-cylinder with lots of convenience and also room, the Camry is still a cars and truck to advise. There are just extra rivals today that also require a close look, regardless of what type of ride a shopper desires in a midsize sedan.

In its most performance-oriented version, nevertheless, the Camry is no more true to exactly what has actually made it such a popular car and yet fails to deliver all right on the pledge of delights.
