The 2015 Toyota Camry is a midsize family sedan, and one of the most popular cars in America. It competes against the Chevrolet Malibu, Chrysler 200, Ford Fusion, Honda Accord, Hyundai Sonata, Kia Optima, Mazda 6, Subaru Legacy, and Volkswagen Passat.

Models and Features
Toyota offers the 2015 Camry with a choice of either a 4- or 6-cylinder engine, or a gas-electric hybrid powertrain. Vehicles equipped with the 4-cylinder engine are available in LE, SE, XSE, and XLE trim levels. Those with the V-6 engine have XSE or XLE trim. Hybrids feature LE, SE, or XLE trim.

Choose the XLE over the LE and the Camry comes equipped with leather seats, heated front seats, a more sophisticated infotainment system, upgraded trim and instrumentation, bigger 17-in. aluminum wheels, and more. Toyota offers a larger number of options for this trim level, too, including a navigation system, adaptive cruise control system with pre-collision system technology, and the company's Safety Connect services with automatic collision notification and emergency assistance response.

Select the Camry SE over the Camry LE and the car comes with a more aggressive appearance, sport-tuned suspension, transmission paddle shifters with downshift rev-matching, and 17-in. aluminum wheels. This version also gets upgraded Optitron gauges, sport-bolstered front seats, and special detailing inside and out.

The Camry XSE is new for 2015, Toyota's bid to attract more enthusiastic drivers to its mainstream family car. The suspension is even stiffer than the SE trim level, the steering is revised to deliver more satisfying heft, and the XSE gets a set of 18-in. wheels and tires. Leather seats with Ultrasuede inserts are standard for the Camry XSE, along with heated front seats and a feature-rich touch-screen infotainment system.

In terms of equipment, the Camry Hybrid models don't exactly align with the regular Camry lineup, but are generally outfitted in similar fashion.

Under the Hood
Although Toyota redesigned or re-engineered more than 2,000 of the Camry's bits and pieces for 2015, it didn't touch the engines. That means the standard 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine still makes 178 horsepower while the available 3.5-liter V-6 is cranking out 268 horsepower.

Camry Hybrid models continue with the same setup as last year, combining an Atkinson-cycle, 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine with an electric assist motor and a nickel-metal hydride battery pack that's recharged through a regenerative braking system. A continuously variable transmission provides EV, Eco, and Normal driving modes, with the EV model supplying pure electric operation for short distances at speeds up to 25 mph, according to Toyota.

As was true last year, Toyota supplies free scheduled maintenance for all 2015 Camry models, lasting for the first 2 years or 25,000 miles of driving.

Fuel Economy
According to Toyota, a 2015 Camry equipped with the 4-cylinder engine should return 25 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway. Choose the V-6 engine and those figures drop to 21 mpg city/31 mpg highway, while the Camry Hybrid gets up to 43 mpg city/39 mpg highway.

Safety and Technology
New safety features for the 2015 Camry include a lane-departure warning system, automatic high-beam headlights, and an adaptive cruise control system with pre-collision system technology. As was true last year, the Camry is equipped with 10 standard air bags and is available with a blind-spot information system, rear cross-traffic alert system, and Toyota's Safety Connect technology, which summons help with the push of a button or if the car's air bags deploy.

The 2015 Camry is also offered with the latest versions of Toyota's Entune family of infotainment systems. Standard equipment includes a 6.1-in. touch-screen display, Bluetooth connectivity, and a USB port. Upgrades include satellite radio, HD Radio, iTunes tagging capability, and subscription-free App Suite technology offering access to the Bing search engine, Internet radio, and more.

Higher-end Entune systems feature a 7-in. touch screen and can be fitted with a hard-drive navigation system and a premium audio system.
