The 2016 Toyota Camry comes in four main trim levels, plus a new model. The core trim levels are LE, SE, XLE, and XSE, and for 2016 Toyota adds a sport-oriented Special Edition model that fits between the SE and XSE. These trims essentially consolidate the Camry’s equipment to a conventional lineup (LE and XLE) and a sporty lineup (SE, Special Edition, and XSE). The XE, SE, and Special Edition are offered only with the 2.5-liter inline-4, while the XSE and XLE come with the 2.5 or the 3.5-liter V-6.
The Camry's feature set is in step with that of its rivals.
Standard equipment in the 2016 Camry LE includes 16-inch steel wheels, power heated side mirrors, intermittent wipers, a power driver's seat, air conditioning, cruise control, a tilt/telescopic steering wheel, power windows and locks, keyless entry, and a rearview camera. Buyers also get the Entune 6.1-inch touchscreen audio and infotainment system with a CD player, auxiliary audio input, USB port, voice recognition, Bluetooth hands-free calling and audio streaming, and six speakers.
SE models add to the LE equipment with 17-inch graphite-finish alloys, a sport suspension, projector-beam headlamps, black trim bezels, a color-keyed rear spoiler, chrome-tipped exhaust, smoked-chrome upper-grille and rear garnish trim, and a sport mesh front grille. Inside, they get SofTex faux leather upholstery, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, and brighter Optitron gauges.
The Special Edition adds to the SE equipment a sunroof, keyless ignition, Qi wireless cellphone charging, Entune Audio Plus with Connected Navigation Scout GPS Link app, and blue interior accents including contrast stitching, gauge cluster and trim, and exclusive floor mats.
The XSE model adds luxury equipment to the SE with sport Ultrasuede seats, dual-zone climate control, LED low and high-beam headlights, LED running lamps, and 18-inch machined alloy wheels. When equipped with the V-6, the XSE also gets a universal garage-door opener, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, vanity mirrors, reading lights, a sunroof, an acoustic windshield, and dual chrome-tipped exhaust outlets.
Top XLE models retain a feature list that some might say belongs to a luxury car, as they add keyless ignition, leather seats with power lumbar support, a power front passenger seat, and 17-inch Super Chrome alloys. XSE and XLE models with the 4-cylinder engine get the Entune Audio Plus system that brings Sirius satellite radio, HD radio, HD traffic and weather services, and the new smartphone navigation integration.
XSE V-6 and XLE models also add Qi wireless charging. XSE and XLE models with the V-6 get an Entune Premium Audio system with audio playback capability, HD predictive traffic, doppler map overlay, and the Entune App Suite, which lets you run Bing search, Pandora, Yelp, and others on the touchscreen using your smartphone's connection.
Equipment for 2016 Toyota Camry Hybrid models roughly parallels that of 4-cylinder Camrys of the same trim level, though the Hybrid is only offered in LE, SE, and XLE trim levels.
