The Car Enthusiasts Love To Hate logo 7/28/2015 Snapptastic

Look, I'm not going to pretend that the I4 XSE Camry is an enthusiast car or that it's going to blow you away while driving it. But for all intents and purposes, this is a damn good car that allows ample opportunity for fun, spirited driving on your daily drives. If you want more power, get the 3.5L V6, but be prepared for some torque steer with that configuration. I believe the I4 gives the driver ample power for daily driving and back road fun. The handling is superb for a mid-size sedan and I'd only rate the Mazda 6 better than the XSE Camry in this regard. There is some body roll but nothing out of the ordinary for a car in this segment. But the car stays poised when you push it and it comes with the ability to use rev-matching downshifts when you're in sport mode.Oh and don't forget Toyota reliability. I owned a 1998 3.5L LE V6 Camry that ran for 225,000 miles with NO major maintenance or repairs. It ran smooth as butter on the day I sold it. Now I own a Lexus and this new Camry and I couldn't be happier with the reliability. Overall, if you want a car that will allow you to have a little more fun than other midsize sedans without sacrificing comfort, reliability, and quality, then I highly recommend the I4 XSE Camry. I give it an overall rating of 4.4/5.0

Average Rating : 4
