In general, reviews read by TheCarConnection.com complimented the number and quality of features available in the 2008 Toyota Camry Solara.
The Toyota 2008 Solara coupe and convertible are offered in three trims: SE, Sport, and SLE. Four-cylinder engines may be paired with a five-speed manual or automatic. Convertibles are available only with the six-cylinder automatic.
According to Edmunds, the base-level Toyota Camry Solara in SE trim "comes with 16-inch alloy wheels, A/C, full power accessories, cruise control and a six-speaker stereo with in-dash CD player and auxiliary audio jack." Those choosing the Sport trim will get "firmer suspension tuning, 17-inch wheels, an exterior body kit, xenon HID headlights, a charcoal interior color scheme with unique trim and gauges, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob."
The 2008 Toyota Camry Solara SLE "drops the Sport's extra body cladding and reverts to the SE's softer suspension, while adding a moonroof (coupe only), automatic climate control, wood-grain interior trim, power driver seat, an upgraded JBL audio system and Bluetooth connectivity." Finally, the Toyota Camry Solara SLE V-6 adds "leather and heated front seats," reports Edmunds. Xenon headlights are optional on the SLE, and only the SLE is available with a navigation system.
Kelley Blue Book notes that additional standard features on the Toyota Camry Solara SE include an overhead console (coupe), rear defroster, illuminated remote keyless entry, fog lights, dual power mirrors, power lumbar support for the driver, and trip computer. At the time of this writing, Kelley Blue Book notes incorrectly that a four-speed auto transmission is optional. The automatic transmission is now a five-speed. Cars.com reports "all trim levels have all-disc brakes." ConsumerGuide recommends shorter buyers opt for the power seat, which is standard on the SLE and optional otherwise.
If you want a convertible Toyota, 2008 will be the last opportunity to purchase a new Camry Solara.
