|2020 Toyota Camry Seat Room and Comfort: Cons|
|The rear seat is similarly meh. Passengers back there will encounter a decent amount of legroom (much more than in the Mazda6), but (unless they have very short legs) insufficient thigh support and (if they're of above-average height) the headliner. This last is the price of the current Camry's racier roof line. Perhaps they figure people who require a roomy rear seat will buy a crossover. To be fair, many manufacturers have been sacrificing rear seat headroom for a more stylish roof line, as this seems the best way for sedans to retain appeal in a market hot for crossovers. see full Toyota Camry review|

|2020 Toyota Camry Powertrain: Pros|
|2021||With a relatively peaky naturally aspirated 301-horsepower V6 (the same as in other V6 Camrys) rather than a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the Toyota Camry TRD is not the quickest car in the class. But for the great majority of drivers a 0-60 time around six seconds should be plenty quick. Twenty years ago only the quickest sedans were this quick, and they were powered by V8s. With the limitation imposed by front-wheel-drive, the Camry TRD's acceleration is traction-limited even without the midrange grunt of a turbocharged engine. Cracking the throttle wide open below 30 mph will dramatically shorten the lives of the front tires. A limited-slip differential like those employed in high-performance Civics (but not any Accord) would help. But the above isn't why I've put "powertrain performance" in the "why to buy" section. Test track times aren't everything. A well-tuned V6 sounds and feels better that a boosted four. And if you want a well-tuned V6 in this class, the Camry has become your only option. For another $10k you can get a Nissan Maxima, but I prefer the sound and feel of the Toyota engine even before considering the transmission each is paired with. Consider transmissions, and the contest between the V6 sedans isn't even close. The Maxima has a CVT, which though better-behaved than the average CVT can still do some unnatural feeling and sounding things with engine speed. The Camry TRD has an eight-speed automatic tramsmission which shifts very smoothly and generally doesn't call attention to itself (though the more open TRD exhaust makes shifts evident), but which could be more responsive in aggressive driving. On curvy roads I often used the paddles to manually shift. They worked well. see full Toyota Camry review|
