The World's most loved sedan is back, with a better design and superior driving dynamics. The Toyota Camry was an indestructible sedan but the Taxi like vibes it had on the previous iterations killed the fun of owning one. The 2019 Camry is just better in every way. Having several engine options and with an available Hybrid variant, Toyota doesn’t want to let go even the slightest of the clientele.

affordable midsize car with an outdated infotainment

Pros - Spacious backseat, comfortable ride, good reliability and great outward visibility

Cons - Outdated infotainment system and middling fuel economy.

reliable and spacious midsize sedan It's been almost two years now since I've been driving my Toyota Camry. The vehicle is really quiet and smooth. I like the SE suspension since it is a little firmer. Although the sedan's dashboard controls and entertainment system are simple to use, it lacks Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and the visuals on the display screen are outdated. It has plush seats, high-quality materials, and lots of legroom for people in the rear. Although for a 4 cylinder engine the fuel economy should have been better, the brakes are strong, the handling is assured, and the overall drivability is excellent. I purchased a 2017 Toyota Camry. Best deal anywhere!! People here are gr...

conservative looking midsize sedan

Pros - Elegant yet straightforward instrument panel, comfortable and spacious backseat, good on gas along with good safety scores.

Cons - Front seats lack side support, numb steering and mushy handling.

comfortable and valuable sedan with mushy handling I recently exchanged a 2008 Toyota Corolla S for a 2012 Toyota Camry XLE. I wasn't seeking a Camry; instead, I was looking for another Corolla S. There were no Corolla S available when I arrived at the dealership. So I took a peek at the row of Camrys and was astounded to learn about the vehicle's good safety scores and estimated fuel economy. Needed a daily commuting economical vehicle so I took up with it. The six-cylinder engine gets approximately 29 mpg on highways and 21mpg on urban roads, despite its efficiency, the Camry's engine provides quick acceleration when I am in need of it. Although the steering feels somewhat lifeless and it isn't quit...

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.

Which Trim should you buy?

The base trim Camry would have been a great choice if it had those better alloys and powered seat adjustments. The 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 drives but having that extra V-6 power is always better than compromising power for better fuel economy.

2019 Toyota Camry Engine and Performance

7.5/10

You are not coming out of the dealership without buying the Camry, because there is an engine option for everyone. The 2019 Camry comes with a 2.5L, Inline-4 engine on all the variants as standard which produces 203 hp & 184 lb-ft of torque. The XLE & XSE trim can be optioned with a 3.5L V-6 engine which produces 301 hp & 267 lb-ft of torque. And both these engines are mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. You get standard FWD config irrespective of the engine choice; 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 Hybrid variant of the Camry comes with the base 2.5L engine coupled with an electric motor delivering a total of 208 hp & 163 lb-ft torque. 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. Chevrolet Malibu should have used a 2.5L engine like everyone else as it suffers quite a lot on the horsepower front. It is not the most fuel-efficient of the lot as well. But it is still quicker than most rivals covering the 0-60MPH in 7.8 seconds while Camry covers the same in 7.6 seconds. However, Malibu quickly loses steam in the quarter-mile run.

How well does the 2019 Toyota Camry handle?

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. Press the pedal lightly and the car will hesitate a little to move, press the pedal hard and it quickly responds. Finding the smooth takeoff is difficult. Apart from this, the overall refinement is as expected from a Toyota.

2019 Toyota Camry Braking Performance

Brakes on the 2019 Camry consist of 12-inch rotors at the front & 11.1 inches at the rear. Camry also weighs less than the rivals. The brake pedal feels light and is easy to actuate. In the hybrid variants where regenerative braking is at work, at low speeds the brakes are very sensitive and stop the car too aggressively. Habituating to the bite point takes some time.

With similarly sized brakes and curb weights, this segment has almost similar braking performance but the Nissan Altima stays ahead of a little in this department of stopping from 60-0MPH in just 116 feet. Chevy Malibu & Ford Fusion have similar braking performance stopping from 60-0MPH in 122 feet. But we feel that the Malibu should have performed better by at least a few feet as it weighs much lesser than the Ford counterpart.

2019 Toyota Camry Fuel Economy

6.0/10

This probably would be the foremost reason for buying a Camry. The base 2.5L engine provides the best-in-class city and highway mileage. The 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 has managed a great city economy and it isn’t far in terms of highway economy compared to the Camry. What Malibu lacks in the economy 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.

2019 Toyota Camry Interior

8.2/10

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 on 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. Overall, the dashboard and switch layout doesn’t reveal the price point of this car. 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 is 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 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. Standout interior features in the 2019 Toyota Camry include:

  • Dual-zone climate control
  • Synthetic leather upholstery
  • Genuine leather upholstery
  • Power-adjustable front seats
  • Heated front seats
  • 60/40-split-folding rear seats
  • Moonroof or a panoramic glass roof

What’s there to keep you entertained?

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. Not to forget the fingerprints it attracts. The base sound system is good enough and an optional JBL sound system which is rather great is available on higher trims. Standout infotainment features in the 2019 Toyota Camry include:

  • 7.0 inch / 8.0-inch touchscreen
  • SiriusXM
  • Bluetooth
  • Siri Eyes-free
  • Apple CarPlay
  • JBL premium audio

2019 Toyota Camry Exterior

7.0/10

The 2019 Toyota Camry 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 on 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 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 Camry has 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. Standout exterior features in the 2019 Toyota Camry include:

  • Decklid spoiler (XLE, XSE)
  • 16-inch steel wheels
  • Galvanized Steel/Aluminum Panels
  • Twin-port quad-tip exhaust (XLE, XSE)

  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Forward pre-collision warning
  • Pedestrian detection
  • Lane departure warning
  • Lane keep assist

2019 Toyota Camry Competition

7.0/10

2019 Toyota Camry vs 2019 Ford Fusion

The Camry is one of the most popular sedans worldwide because of its reliability and comfortable driving experience. And for 2019 the driving dynamics are much improved. The Ford Fusion has a weak base engine; fuel economy is 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. Altima is a well-weighted contender for the Camry, even better than in some aspects.

2019 Toyota Camry vs 2019 Chevrolet Malibu

The Chevrolet Malibu is the best-looking sedan in the group today. Looks like something out of a Transformer’s movie. The only downside of the Malibu would be that tiny 1.5L, Turbo base engine. Just skip this one and get the 2.0L variant. The interior of this car is miles apart from what it looks like on the outside, maybe designed by some older folks. The interior factor alone makes us think twice before recommending it to anyone. 

2019 Toyota Camry 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 is 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 can’t deny the whole package just for a small thing. The 2019 Toyota Camry is a true family sedan that is better than ever before.
