The 2016 Toyota Camry is packed with innovative features – but did you know trim level determines everything from the engine to the infotainment? Fortunately, there are a number of options for every Camry and every trim level:
Five trim levels and eleven colors are available for the 2016 Camry. The lower trim levels offer attractive packages with plenty of dash tech and modern amenities. Picking one of the top trim levels, however, is the only way to get the available cutting-edge safety features or the V-6 engine.
The LE base model has an eight-way power-adjusting driver’s seat. Both front seats are sports chairs with side bolsters. The backs of these seats are sculpted, adding knee room for back seat riders. The shaped headliner ensures better headroom for both rows. The rear seats can split-fold to expand the trunk. The cloth upholstery is complemented by woodgrain accents. Performance features include a 175-horsepower engine with good fuel economy. Entune is standard, including:
- rearview camera
- 1-inch Entune touchscreen
- Siri Eyes Free
- Bluetooth streaming audio
- USB input
For a sportier ride, the SE adds a specially-tuned suspension. Key elements have been restyled to give the Camry a more athletic appearance. Interior enhancements include a synthetic leather upholstery and a 4.2-inch color information display. The Entune Audio Plus package adds:
- 7-inch touchscreen upgrade
- satellite capability
- HD radio
With its blue interior trim, smoked headlights, and special exterior trim, no other Camry comes close to the unique style of the Special Edition. Shoppers will appreciate the car’s longer list of standard features, such as larger wheels, push button start, hands-free trunk, Qi wireless charger, a sunroof, and Entune plus entertainment features. Many of these features are available on the SE, XSE and the XLE as standalone options or packages.
The sporty XSE has unique 18-inch wheels and LED running lights. Leather and synthetic suede dress the interior. The available red-stitch accent adds to the look of this racy ride. For couples, this edition is a good choice because the front seat passenger gains a power chair. Also, the automatic climate control expands to a dual system. Both front seating positions enjoy power-heat.
This edition drops the sportier suspension and adds a more comfort-oriented one. It would be a good fit for a family with toddlers in the back seat. This edition also drops the XSE’s sporty elements, going for a more classic style. The interior is dressed in full leather upholstery.
If fuel economy isn’t your main priority, the XSE and XLE trim levels offer a V-6 that kicks out 268 horsepower. The V-6 editions gain a noise-reducing windshield, push button start, trunk opener, the Qi charger, and an upgraded Entune system. With either V-6 edition, shoppers can add safety tech:
- blind spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert
- lane alert
- pre-collision warning
- automatic braking
- automatic headlight control
From a value-rich base edition to a near-luxury choice, many shoppers will find a trim to satisfy them in the Camry line-up.
