2012 Toyota Camry SE
To fuel your love of cars,
visit the Autos section.
If you like Camrys, you ought to really love the SE V6.
This is Toyota’s performance Camry…and in addition to the 268 HP V6, the SE gives you 18” alloys, a sport-tuned suspension, quicker ratio steering, paddle shifters, and a sport-tuned suspension.
They all combine to make the SE a rather rapid and well-controlled ride…with the 3.5 liter six capable of some serious acceleration.
And with the optional $1,050 leather package, you’ll be riding in heated ultra-suede sport seats with leather door trim…giving the SE the looks to go with it’s name.
Projector-beam halogen headlights, fog lights, a color-keyed rear spoiler, heated folding mirrors, a leather-trimmed tilt / telescoping steering wheel, a 6.1” touch-screen, all the expected connectivity including hands-free phone with voice recognition and a 10-speaker JBL sound system round-out the package.
Our SE included a $915 moonroof and a $895 convenience package which included a backup cam, an auto-diming mirror, anti-theft system and more….bringing it’s window sticker to $31,135…which is actually within a few dollars of the average transaction price of a new vehicle these days.
Those 268 horses flow through a 6-speed automatic…generating EPA mileage figures of 21 city and 30 highway. We averaged around 25 mpg in our daily commute…burning regular gas.
Again, if you like your Camrys with a little attitude, the SE would be your ride.
