2019 Toyota Camry Review and Comparison in Colorado Springs, CO

The 2019 Toyota Camry Sheds the Last of Its Spartan Heritage

35 years ago, Toyota replaced the moderately popular Toyota Corona with the new Toyota Camry, a front-wheel-drive compact sedan. It was a small, affordable, and efficient car, but it still brought us everything Americans love about their cars--great features, fun-to-drive performance, bold sedan styling, and of course, bulletproof reliability and long-lasting durability.

It was an instant hit. That's why there are Toyota Camry sedans just about everywhere--many with 250,000+ miles on the clock and still going strong.

Now 2019 brings us an even more refined Camry experience. It's completely grown out of its compact economy roots, but it still brings us that famous durability, reliability, efficiency, and feature-rich interior that made it such a smash hit to start with.

The 2019 Toyota Camry's Dramatic New Look

The new 2019 Toyota Camry really changed things up with its new styling. The sharp new styling is a welcome surprise--the new 2019 Toyota Camry sports chrome accents, sharp lines, an imposing new grille, dual exhaust with twin chrome pipes, and vivid colors. It's a well-balanced, reliable, and practical sedan, sure--but it really looks like it could tear down the track alongside a Toyota 86 coupe. Its new look and feel breed confidence, resulting in an efficient family sedan you don't need to make any excuses for.

The Safety Standards Everyone Should Have

Driver-assist technology has made huge strides in recent years, and it's now available on a wide range of models from most automakers--but too few are making these systems standard equipment.

Toyota is changing all that, making Toyota Safety Sense™ P standard on every 2019 Toyota Camry. The Toyota Safety Sense P package includes Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, and Automatic High Beams.

Additional available safety systems include Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Bird's-Eye View Camera System with Perimeter Scan, head-up display, and Intelligent Clearance Sonar with Rear Cross-Traffic Braking. We're hoping to see these features become standard in the near future as well.

A Pleasantly Surprising Interior

When you're in the cabin of a 2019 Toyota Camry, you get the same feeling you get after discovering that the twenty-dollar bill in your wallet is actually two twenties stuck together. You're welcomed by a soft, high-quality interior, some truly classy leather, dual-zone auto temperature control, a panoramic power moonroof, and comfortable seats. It feels natural and well-thought out. The top-level 2019 Toyota Camry XLE and 2019 Toyota Camry XSE could easily pass for Lexus if it weren't for the Toyota badging.

The 2019 Toyota Camry Infotainment System Finally Has Apple CarPlay

Apple CarPlay is included in the new 2019 Toyota Camry Entune infotainment system. It's a feature that was notably absent from the otherwise excellent multimedia system, and we're glad it's finally here. An eight-inch touchscreen display, full App Suite, Dynamic Navigation, and Bird's-Eye View camera monitor options round out the system.

The 2019 Toyota Camry is a Solid Performer

Many cars, especially sedans, have sporty new looks to cover up their blah performance. The 2019 Toyota Camry is not one of those cars.The new Toyota Camry platform brings us tighter performance, better handling, and more power. You can take your pick from several powertrains based on whether you're looking for top efficiency, higher performance, or a hybrid electric motor.

The 2.5-liter four-cylinder will get you over 200 horsepower and up to 186 pound-feet of torque, yet it still earns you an impressive 41 MPG highway on the 2019 Toyota Camry L. For those looking for a little extra punch, the optional 3.5-liter V6 has over 300 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque. The 2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid also gets a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, boosted by 118 horsepower and 149 pound-feet of torque from an electric motor. The 2019 Toyota Camry's auto transmission options are smooth and responsive, giving you an enjoyable driving performance without any slushy shifting or hesitation.

What's the Final Verdict on the 2019 Toyota Camry?

As before, the 2019 Toyota Camry is a reliable, comfortable, well-equipped, efficient, and affordable sedan. It's a practical choice, and it always has been--but with the new styling, upgraded comfort features, standard safety tech, and improved engine options, the 2019 Toyota Camry has truly grown into a well-balanced sedan that's fun to drive. We think it's a car you'll enjoy, and judging by legendary Toyota Camry reliability of years past, we think it's a car your kids (or grandkids) will enjoy too.
