Overall Rating


The 2021 Toyota Camry offers a total of 3 engine options to choose from - a 206 hp 2.5-liter I-4, the 301 hp naturally aspirated 3.5-liter V-6, and a 208 hp hybrid model, which we review separately. Speaking of configurations, the 2021 Toyota Camry is available in a total of 6 trims - LE, SE, SE Nightshade, XSE, XLE, and TRD (reviewed separately). No, don't go back to re-read the last line as the base L model of the 2021 Toyota Camry has been discontinued for 2021, and now the 2021 Toyota Camry LE is the cheapest model here that comes at a price of $24,970. 

The 2021 Toyota Camry brings a mild-facelift to counter its most direct rival, Honda Accord, which underwent a design refresh just last year. While this is the arch-rivalry here, the 2021 Toyota Camry also competes with other hot-sellers of the segment such as the Nissan Altima and Ford Fusion. So will the Camry be able to hold its ground via the means of all these updates? Scroll down our 2021 Toyota Camry's Review to find the answer.

2021 Toyota Camry Maintenance, Reliability and Warranty

With Toyota’s decent warranty plans, pocket-friendly maintenance, and standard advanced safety features, the Toyota Camry is one of the most reliable Sedans available in the market right now. The 2020 Camry has excellent J.D. Power’s reliability score with no official recalls. Considering this, we can expect the same with the 2021 Toyota Camry. 

Reliability and Ownership Costs

The 2020 Toyota Camry has earned for itself the second rank in the Best Midsize Car of 2020” by K.B.B. It has also scored an excellent J.D.Power reliability score of 85 out of 100 for its 2020 model, which is the highest score in the segment. Moreover, with almost comparable warranty coverage with its competitors, Toyota is the only one that offers complimentary scheduled maintenance for either two years or 25,000 miles on every new vehicle purchased. The Toyota Camry spans from basic to luxurious while offering you advanced safety, reliability, practicality, stylish looks, and an excellent driving experience.

On average, the Toyota Camry Sedan demands about $27,350. However, the price for individual vehicles differs for different states as it is affected by factors like sales tax, destination charges and individual dealership discounts. The people from the states of Alaska, Montana, Oregon, Delaware, and New Hampshire enjoy the best prices as the sales taxes are exempted from these states.

The 2020 Camry has received a perfect 5-star rating by the NHTSA. Besides, the IIHS has named Camry a “Top Safety Pick+”. With the first two years of complimentary scheduled maintenance, repairs are usually infrequent, and even after that, if required, the maintenance won't be costing you too much.

2021 Toyota Camry Buying Advice

With a power-packed engine under the hood, a sportier suspension setup, and more reliable brakes mated with luxury offered by stylish looking Sedan, the 2021 Toyota Camry XLE is the most recommended option for you. Considering the exceptionally-well performance of the 2020 XLE model, we can speculate that we won’t be receiving many recalls for the 2021 model as well.

Is buying a used Toyota Camry a good idea?

The Toyota Camry has a history of reliability & resale value due to its outstanding quality and cost-effective maintenance. The latest vehicle dependability study by J.D.Power has ranked the Toyota Camry as the most dependable vehicle over the past three years. Therefore, buying a used Toyota Camry can prove to be a really wise decision. 

The Camry has also not been officially recalled for any major issue for the 2020 model. A used Toyota Camry with low mileage and proper maintenance records won’t be bothering you with its frequent repairs. At last, being the most fuel-economical Sedan against its rivals, Camry can prove itself to be reliable even for a used car. We’d recommend you to choose a used 2017 Toyota Camry, as they provide the best value for your money.

2021 Toyota Camry Engine and Performance

7.5/10

The 2021 Toyota Camry Sedan will carry forward its same powertrain options from the 2020 Camry.

Though Ford Fusion and Nissan Altima are also equipped with the same 2.5L naturally aspirated engine just like the Toyota Camry, however, the Camry gets more grunt under the hood and outperforms the competition easily. The 2021 Honda Accord gets a 1.5L turbocharged i4 engine that is comparatively smaller but packs in more power than the Fusion or the Altima. 

2021 Toyota Camry Acceleration and Braking Performance

The 2021 Toyota Camry manages to reach 0-60 mph in just 7.6 seconds and takes 15.7 seconds for completing a quarter-mile, which might not be that impressive numbers, as compared to the rivals but suited quite well for a Sedan of this segment. However, bring in the more potent V6 engine, and the scenario completely changes. A V6 powered 2021 Toyota Camry takes 5.5 seconds to reach 60 mph from a standstill and have a top speed of up to 136 mph

2021 Toyota Camry Sedan accelerates from 0-60 mph in 7.6 sec

2021 Toyota Camry Interior

8.2/10

Inspired by its predecessor, the 2021 Toyota Camry would be perked up with a quirky Y-shaped dashboard and comfortable seats. Its commodious interiors impress you with its aura while it provides you with driver-oriented configurations. The dash gets multiple buttons for the convenience of the for better convenience. Plus, you get the feel of wood when you sit inside the car. One of the primary noticeable differences you’ll notice is the floating infotainment display which mates well with the layout of the dashboard.

The TRD models of the 2021 Toyota Camry get black-red stitched seat trims driving. These features are carried over from its 2020 model. Talking of hybrid trims, you’d get various display features mounted on the TFT MID display. Plus, there is a refreshed center console that declutters it overall.

The 2021 Toyota Camry offers the least space in its first row as compared to its competition. Ford Fusion gets the most spacious interior in the segment. The Honda Accord provides a spacious rear seat comparatively. The Camry undoubtedly makes up for the lesser space with a more modern interior.

2021 Toyota Camry infotainment system

The 2021 Toyota Camry keeps its occupants perfectly entertained throughout the ride. For the model year 2021, the technology facet of the Camry has been upgraded as it now gets a new set of 7-inch and 9-inch touchscreen units that are also shared with the new 2021 Toyota RAV4 line-up. The display is a floating unit now, which has helped in freeing up space on the dashboard and bring in a refreshing change to the layout.

You can also upgrade it to an Audio Plus package with an 800W 9-speaker JBL sound system in the higher trim levels. Since the infotainment display is a floating one, there’s a lot of free space you get on the dashboard.

2021 Toyota Camry Sedan infotainment screen

The infotainment system is paired with a smart device integration that is installed with Amazon Alexa, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto as a standard. Along with that, it offers 3 USB ports (one for media and two charging ports), SiriusXM with three months all-access trail, advanced voice recognition, Bluetooth streaming with hands-free support, and Wi-Fi with 4G compatibility.

2021 Toyota Camry Exterior

7.0/10

The Toyota Camry has been receiving compliments for its dapper look, but with the upgraded exteriors, it’s going to rock the show! The 2021 Toyota Camry shares most of the styling cues from the outgoing 2020 version. The front fascia differs for the SE, XSE, and LE, XLE. The former team gets a split layout with a sharp touch to its side vents. 

2021 Toyota Camry Sedan

The latter team gets a broad front grille ornamented with a single uncut piece that takes a broader space. The vehicle’s 17 and 18-inch wheels sprinkle an additional touch to the design. The TRD model has wonderfully black exteriors with a blacked-out mesh grille and red accents, which makes the car look sporty.

The drive is smooth and very quiet. The only thing I don? like is sluggish acceleration. I know its a Toyota and expecting a Camry to be fast is stupid but still could have been a little better, just a little better.

Expected better

Fun to drive- What does that mean? Well, it has a good amount of power, and it knows how to utilize that power. It is very responsive and fast when you push it otherwise, it? your typical Toyota.
