Toyota Camry 2011 is one of the luxury sedan that has been quite famous but due to the increase in competition in recent times, the company has been forced to bring in a few changes in the car. The Company is coming with a new model with some minor changes in this year 2011. The 2011 model is introduced with two different sizes of engine and is front wheel driven. Inside too, the design remains a little understated and conservative yet upscale—although somewhat drab materials let the execution down.
With those two engines and seven different models in all, ranging from the base (and quite stark) CE model to the sporty SE and luxurious XLE, the Toyota Camry 2011 can satisfy almost any mid-size sedan shopper’s need. A 268-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 remains available. Otherwise, the 2.5-liter four-cylinder makes 169 hp in most models but 179 in the Camry SE. Four-cylinder Camry models come with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, while the V-6 comes only with the automatic. The four-cylinder engine has plenty of power for most types of driving, but the V-6 is the choice for those who often travel with a full load or need strong high-speed passing ability. With either engine, the six-speed automatic is quick to react yet smooth-shifting. The auto also features a manual-shift mode, but with the Camry’s relaxed driving feel you might as well leave it in Drive.
A Camry Hybrid model is also offered; it combines a 147-hp, 2.4-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine with an electronically controlled planetary-gear transmission setup and Hybrid Synergy Drive (with an electric motor system) to altogether make 187 hp. Considering the extra weight of the Camry, it delivers performance that’s about on par with the four-cylinder Camry models, but with even better fuel economy.
The 2011 Toyota Camry has a very roomy interior, with plenty of legroom in back for most adults and enough space for five. Front seats are wide and soft but lack much support, while rear seats are extremely comfortable and have larger proportions than those in some other mid-size cars; adults will feel comfortable enough for road trips back there.
Toyota Camry 2011 has an aerodynamic styling. However it is more popular because of exciting features rather than its appearance. This 2011 model also includes exterior features like projector beam headlights, steel wheels of 16 inches, LED taillights and solar energy absorbent glass. Fog lamps, heated side mirrors, power moonroof and upgraded wheels are some of the optional features.
The interior features of Toyota Camry 2011 may vary according to chosen trim level. The base model of the car includes features like cruise control, air conditioning along with an air filter, cloth seats, a CD player along with mp3, compatibility for XM radio, power accessories and secondary audio jack. Remote keyless entry, Bluetooth, upgraded stereo, climate control for dual zone and DVD navigation are some of the upgraded trims and optional features.
The 2011 Toyota Camry is very spacious. It has enough headroom to comfort the tall people and the seats are comfortable too. The back portion provides enough space to seat three people with plenty of space for legs. The car has provisions to place the small items as well as 15 cubic feet of space behind to place the luggage and other cargo.
Available in two different engine sizes, Toyota camry 2011 offers a firm ride and provide enough power to handle easily in any kind of driving situation. The 2.5 liter engine offers six-speed manual as well as automatic transmission whereas the 3.5 liter engine offers only six-speed automatic transmission.
The Toyota Camry 2011 is reliable and has a low ownership cost. It is one of the most fuel efficient cars in its category. Though there are other non-hybrid cars which are cheaper but not as much popular as the Toyota Camry. When it comes to competition the 2011 Honda Accord and 2011 Ford Fusion are strong competitor.
