After a fairly serious refresh in 2012, the Camry enters 2013 with relatively minor changes. New standard equipment includes a display-based audio system on the L and Hybrid LE models. A blind spot monitoring system is available on the SE and the turn signals now have a lane change feature, allowing a single tap to produce three blinks of the turn signal. The only other changes include minor adjustments to the interior trim, most notably on the doors.
V6 and hybrid versions available, impressive interior space; ride quality

But recent styling updates make it even more appealing to buyers. It's strong competition in the midsize segment thanks to a reputation for quality and value per dollar.
