Toyota's top-selling front-drive mid-size sedan continues to offer good value and solid overall performance and long-term reliability, with a choice of a four- or six-cylinder engine and a wide range of available features across the line. A fuel-efficient 157-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine powers the base model, which provides the choice of either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission. The LE and XLE trim levels receive a stronger 210-horsepower 3.0-liter V-6, while the SE version offers a 225-horsepower 3.3-liter V-6 powerplant; both V-6s come with a smooth-shifting five-speed automatic gearbox. Standard equipment includes a cassette/CD stereo, air conditioning, power accessories, a tilt steering wheel, cruise control and keyless entry. Options include anti-lock brakes, brake assist, Vehicle Stability Control, front-side and side-curtain airbags, power adjustable pedals, and a satellite navigation system.
