Affordable and reliable in all senses, the 2019 Toyota Camry is back with a better exterior design layout that was brought to light with the 2018 redesign and also superior driving dynamics. With a $450 hike in price from last year, the 2019 Camry gets plenty of upgrades for the year, including standard Apple CarPlay and Wi-Fi hotspot. For Sale, the midsize sedan also gets numerous exterior paint options. On the specs front, the Camry is available with a standard 2.5L inline-4 engine, and an optional 3.5L V6 that is available with the XLE and XSE trims. With decent power figures on offer, the fuel efficiency of the Camry is also pretty impressive, with the Hybrid Camry returning a massive 51 MPG in the city.

2019 Toyota Camry For Sale

The 2019 Toyota Camry starts off at a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $24,095 for the base L trim, while the top-end XSE V6 Camry is priced at $34,850. The next-in-line is the LE trim, which brings plenty of creature comforts to the lineup, with a price of $24,600. Further, for an added premium of $5000 on top of the base XLE and XSE trims, you can get both the XLE V6 and XSE V6 Camry trims respectively. The average price list of the 2019 Camry ranges from $25,005 to $34,916, based on a number of metrics. Also, the average five-year cost to own the 2019 Camry rounds up to about $26,500.

Toyota Camry Buying Advice

With adequate power on offer and the advanced set of driver-assistance features, all standard from the base trim onwards, each and every trim of the 2019 Camry is perfect in its own way. Although, with the new updated infotainment system along with an 8-inch touchscreen on offer, the Camry XLE V6 trim seems to be the best and most viable choice of all. In terms of the Older car market, the 2016 Camry, which brought to us the new SE edition is a decent choice. Further, if you're looking for a fairly newer MY, the 2018 Camry, which was fully redesigned, and also came with the introduction of new engines to the lineup, is the best older Camry out there, as you can get it for a decent price.

On the safety front, all of the trims of the 2019 Camry get Safety Connect as standard, which includes emergency and roadside assistance. Toyota also delivers on a spacious interior front, with plenty of feature updates for the year. Both XLE and XSE trims get an 8-inch infotainment unit as standard, along with a premium JBL stereo system. The indestructible Camry sedan goes up against the likes of Ford Fusion, Nissan Altima, and the Chevrolet Malibu.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

The 2019 Toyota Camry is mostly carried over unchanged after it was put through considerable changes last year. With adequate performance from sizeable engines, a capacious interior space, and also top-notch Toyota reliability, the 2019 Camry is still the go-to practical midsize sedan for a majority of buyers along with its arch-rival, the Honda Accord. For 2019 the Camry also gets Apple CarPlay, Amazon Alexa, and a 3-year Safety Connect Subscription as standard options for all trims. But as they say, nothing is perfect, Toyota has left some crevasses in their features list as well and those might reflect on your purchase decision. The 2019 Camry is standing up against the Ford Fusion, Chevrolet Malibu, and Nissan Altima.


Buying Advice

The base trim Camry would have been a great choice if it had those better alloys and power-seat adjustments. The 2019 Camry XLE trim with the optional V-6 engine would be a good buy as it gets all the creature comforts, a bigger touchscreen, better suspension, paddle shifters, and a heads-up display. Why not get the more economical 2.5L? Well, it is a great engine for daily driving but having that extra V-6 power is always better than compromising power for better fuel economy.

Features
8.0/10

The 2019 Toyota Camry comes in 5 trims levels. L, LE, SE, XLE, and XSE. The base trim comes equipped with a basic infotainment system and Apple CarPlay. All the Camry models come with Safety Sense as standard which includes features like adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, lane keep assist, etc. As you go up the trim ladder, you get upgraded wheels, leather upholstery, power-adjustable seats, and a better infotainment system. The XLE & XSE trims have an option to choose a V6 engine and only those trims get a panoramic glass roof and head-up display as standard. The XLE V6 costs $34,300 and the XSE V6 costs $34,850.

Engine and Performance
7.5/10

The 2019 Camry comes with a 2.5L Inline-4 engine on all the variants as standard which produces 203 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. The XLE and XSE Camry trims can be optioned with a 3.5L V-6 engine which produces 301 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. And both these engines are mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. You get a standard FWD setup irrespective of the engine choice, while AWD is missing here.

The base Inline 4 engine is more suited for laid-back driving as the acceleration is not really what we call quick, but it can be lived with. The V-6 on the other hand is a better alternative and performs well while still having extra horsepower left for those last-minute overtakes. The base Toyota Camry is good for a 0-60 MPH acceleration time of 7.6 seconds, while the V6-powered Camry does the same in 5.8 seconds. The Hybrid variant of the Camry comes with the base 2.5L engine coupled with an electric motor delivering a total of 208 hp. This would be an ideal choice for serious fuel-conscious buyers. The 2019 Camry is a better overall performer in the group having a better spec sheet.

The 2019 Camry is surprisingly better at handling than the previous years' car. It is now very much agile for its size. The suspension setup provides excellent ride quality on bumpy roads. The tires beg for grip sometimes as you can hear them screeching if cornered aggressively. Bigger and sportier tires could solve this problem to an extent. The steering feel is direct and balanced, much better than last year. The 8-speed automatic is smooth to shift but struggles at low speeds. Brakes on the 2019 Camry consist of 12-inch rotors at the front & 11.1 inches at the rear.

Fuel Economy
8.0/10

Fuel efficiency would be the foremost reason for buying a Toyota Camry. The base 2.5L engine provides the best-in-class city and highway mileage of 28 and 39 miles to the gallon respectively. The Camry Hybrid powertrain returns a staggering 51 MPG in the city and 53 MPG on the highway. Camry however lacks a little on the fuel tank capacity having the smallest one in the segment at 14.5 gallons. Still, it has a better overall range than the competition.

The Chevrolet Malibu manages to return great city fuel economy and it isn’t far in terms of highway economy compared to the Camry. What Malibu lacks in the fuel economy department, it balances out with the overall fuel capacity. Ford Fusion and Nissan Altima both have the biggest fuel tanks of the lot which puts the combined driving range of the Altima over 600 miles.

Interior
8.5/10

The interior of the 2019 Camry is filled with soft-touch materials. The doors and dashboard are covered in a mix of hard plastic and soft-touch materials for the hand rests. The dashboard design of the 2019 Toyota Camry is futuristic. The infotainment system is situated in a Y-shaped design cutout and has a glossy finish and all the controls are present in this little area. The seats are cloth upholstered on the base trim and are only manually adjustable. The upgraded leather seats get power adjustments and have minimal bolstering to support the driver and passenger.

Headroom and legroom on the first row are plenty but the seats are situated low to the floor making your knees bend quite a lot. Second-row seats are flat for the most part but on such cars, practicality makes more sense than individual comfort. The interior storage spaces on the Camry are your usual ones like a center storage space for the smartphone along with charging. Cup holders for every passenger and sleeve pockets behind the seats. The door bins are not really practical, just there for the sake of being there.

The standard cargo-carrying capacity of 14.1 cu. ft with the 2019 Camry is average in this class but seats can be folded to create more space. The seat folding mechanism is flawed on the Camry as the passthrough gap is narrow and the seats don’t fold flush with the cargo bed; there is a significant step over. So, the actual usable space is very limited after the folding of seats also.

The 2019 Camry comes with 2 display options, a 7.0-inch touchscreen and an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay as standard. Android Auto will be added later on. The touchscreen works well and is responsive but the glossy finish sometimes makes it difficult to see in bright conditions. The base sound system is good enough and an optional JBL sound system which is rather great is available on higher trims.

Exterior
7.0/10

The 2019 Toyota Camry certainly looks striking. The front end of the car is the star here with that big grille and a slim headlight setup. The hood has quite a lot of body lines but they lead to nowhere; it’s the only overdone part of this car. When you don’t actually have much power under the hood, show it on the hood, that’s the idea maybe. The rear fascia is also pleasing to the eye. Overall it’s a clean design. The elongated tail light setup and CAMRY badging in the middle do look nice. On the higher trims, the bumper has a body-colored air diffuser and twin port quad-tip exhaust tips.

Overall, the 2019 Camry has an elegant exterior design for the Base trims and the higher trims get sportier treatments, pleasing everyone. A good ride height gives the driver a good view of the road ahead but the 2019 Camry has a relatively low height. The low height might improve aerodynamics but will hinder all-around visibility. Ford Fusion has the widest stance in the segment, making it look staunch, more muscular, and aggressive.

2019 Toyota Camry vs 2019 Ford Fusion

The Toyota Camry is one of the most popular sedans worldwide because of its reliability and comfortable driving experience. And for 2019 the driving dynamics have certainly improved. The Ford Fusion has a weak base engine; along with fuel economy being disastrous. But the Fusion still looks great and if you can get the 2.0L turbo engine it closes the performance gap by a lot.

2019 Toyota Camry vs 2019 Nissan Altima

The Nissan Altima is a well-equipped sedan even in its base trims. The design of this car leans towards elegance. The set of standard safety features and infotainment features is better than the Camry. The seats on the Nissan are better with a lot more bolstering as standard. The Nissan Altima is a well-weighted contender for the Camry, even better than in some aspects.

Final Verdict

The Toyota Camry has been a great sedan since its introduction and over the years it has improved a lot. The dull feeling steering wheel is now gone and the car feels better to drive. The design language has improved especially in the XLE and XSE trims. Fuel economy is the point of focus for the buyers in this segment and the Camry impresses everyone and bests its rivals. The infotainment system is a bit lackluster but one can’t deny the whole package, and the value it brings to the table just for a small thing. The 2019 Toyota Camry is a true family sedan that is better than ever before.
