Walkaround

With its great lines, rounded sides, and also smooth surface, it was difficult to keep our hands off the Camry LE Wagon's smooth body. The hood was slightly increased with a delicate curve. Straight beneath was a metal sheet to protect the bottom from jumping rocks. The sides of the LE Wagon were exceptionally tidy in design-from the subtle plastic strip that highlighted its platinum sheen to the recessed door takes care of.

The hood was simple to open up with a flip of a lever, and the oil dipstick and also tank were within very easy reach.

In the rear, two windshield wipers recommended a severity concerning exposure. Actually, that can see out the back of a one-rear-wiper window in inadequate conditions? The taillights covered somewhat around the back corners, including in our impact that whatever regarding this wagon meshed flawlessly.

Overall, there wasn't a lot of decoration aside from the chrome Toyota emblem and also name. However we think the straightforward, sophisticated designing of this wagon will still turn a few heads.

Interior Qualities

Our 6-foot test driver slid easily into the Camry LE Wagon when the steering wheel was elevated. When in the cockpit, he located a comfy seat that provided great exposure and an unusual feeling of spaciousness for a midsize automobile.

Generally, the dash looked well syntheticed. Controls weren't obstructed into comers or hidden out of view. The only attribute we did have an issue finding was the hood release. After seeking advice from the owner's guidebook, we ultimately found it under the emergency brake.

The motorist's seat could be changed front to back with a lever, as well as there were handles to adjust the reduced torso assistance. The driver's seat reclined further than many wagons we evaluated. It also kicked back a bit as well as offered lots of clearance.

The rear seat was comfortable sufficient for three people and also, with 34.7-inches of legroom, a tag individual would not need to worry about really feeling cramped. The 60/40 seat transition was conveniently completed with a touch of a button, leaving lots of room for long, large freight.

There were a number of well-balanced security functions, such as hefty, velour-covered support messages, childproof back door locks as well as backseat three-point safety belt.

The rear hatch was quite broad, and also rear storage could suit 40 cubic feet of freight. Our prized possessions were hidden by a retracting floor covering.

Driving Impressions

Our Camry LE Wagon started up as quietly as a sewing maker and stayed rattle-free throughout our drive. On the freeway, it accelerated swiftly as well as efficiently to 70 miles per hour with a vivacious, throaty audio. As soon as up to speed, the our examination wagon was comfortable and managed responsively when combining right into website traffic. The cruise-control switches got on the guiding wheel itself, so we really did not need to bother with quickly finding a bar to activate this attribute.

The LE Wagon offered a sporty, high-performance drive compared with the hefty handling of other wagons. Changing in and out of gear was straightforward, and also the lever was ergonomically designed to really feel good in our driver's hand. (Bear in mind that the LE Wagon won't change right into drive unless the brake gets on.).

Control was never ever an issue, whether we were driving on ice or packed snow, or when we tried a 360-degree turn at 45 miles per hour. We were also able to swing a U-turn on a normal-width side road. Braking on an icy road from 20 miles per hour, we found the ABDOMINAL worked as advertised however made a loud grating noise.

When increasing a high hillside or drawing a lots, we unclothed overdrive, floored it as well as promptly reached 45 mph at 6,000 rpms.

When it comes to the trip, the high-tech suspension really did not prevent us from really feeling bumps and abnormalities in the road, but after a few days of travelling we possibly would not have actually noticed the small jumping.

One crucial standout: We discovered that our LE Wagon was so easy to park, it practically seemed to assist in the initiative.

Recap

Bearing in mind Toyota's track record for amazing fit-and-finish, the LE Wagon really did not dissatisfy us.

Nor could its flair for providing all-around comfort be overstated. The Camry's roominess, particularly, is just one of the auto's most pleasant features, which is shocking when you think about the tight wheelbase (103.1 inches). Yet lots of legroom is a magnificent benefit on this vehicle that has touched all the bases.

However, excitement about this wagon's general plan could be solidified a little bit by its large price tag. Nevertheless, a few more dollars would certainly obtain you an also roomier minivan-but what you could get in space you 'd probably lose in styling as well as performance.

For those who feel that a wagon is a throwback to the old watercraft your mother schlepped you around in, there is n o resemblance.
