Entune doesn't give you as much voice control as Sync does.
Mid-size sedans like the 2013 Toyota Camry span a wide range in price and features, and the Camry is competitive every step of the way, with all that you'd expect to see given the price, plus a few extra items in each trim.
Four trim levels are offered: value-priced CE, mainstream LE, sporty SE, and luxurious XLE. There's also a limited-availability, base L model that you're more likely to see in rental-car fleets than on the new-car lot.
Each of the models get different upholstery and trim combinations; L and LE models come with Silver trim and fabric seats; SE models get silver-grain trim and synthetic leather; XLE models come with faux-woodgrain and leather, and Hybrids come with Metallic Tech grain and in XLE Hybrid (or available on the SE) a leather-trimmed ultrasuede. For 2013, all LE and XLE grades get better color-matching on Icory seat inserts; all models with leather have updated stitching accents; and all models have updated door trim.
Hybrid shoppers have a choice of two 2013 Toyota Camry Hybrid LE models, which include dual-zone climate control, a Smart Key system, and Optitron meters, while the new Hybrid XLE comes with all the goodies that the V-6 XLE includes.
SE models also also get sport seats, 17-inch (four-cylinder) or 18-inch (V-6) alloy wheels, a special three-spoke leather-trimmed steering wheel and, perhaps most importantly, a Sport mode with downshift rev-matching for the transmission, along with steering-wheel paddle shifters.Bluetooth connectivity is included in all trims—even the base model—and the screen-based Display Audio system, with Bluetooth audio streaming, USB connectivity, and iPod connectivity, is now included even in the base Camry L. A navigation system with voice recognition is also available, as is a high-end JBL sound system, with HD Radio and satellite radio. Toyota's advanced Entune system is also available, bringing a suite of connected services, including access to Pandora streaming audio, for example.
Upper trims of the Camry, like the XLE and SE offer long lists of features, while the base models offer lots of value for the money.
