For 2011, changes to the Toyota Camry are mainly in trim. The LE V6 adds Bluetooth, a USB port and XM satellite radio, while the SE V6 gains leather seats and a pushbutton start. The Hybrid’s Moonroof Package, which adds a power sunroof, dual illuminated vanity mirrors and rear reading lamps, now also adds fog lamps. The four-cylinder SE, which came with a six-speed manual transmission for 2010, now uses a six-speed automatic transmission only.

The Camry comes with three engine choices. In the conventional models, there is a 2.5-litre four-cylinder or 3.5-litre V6, both with a six-speed automatic transmission. The Hybrid uses a 2.4-litre four-cylinder with CVT and Hybrid Synergy Drive system; it’s a full hybrid and capable of running on its battery alone.
