The 2019 Toyota Camry is a striking-looking family sedan in a narrowing, but still extremely competitive segment. The car is an excellent all-around vehicle that is near the top of the segment with a comfortable ride, spacious cabin and excellent engines, including one of the only V6 engines available in the class and a hybrid model that boasts superior fuel economy without any significant drawbacks. It's also more responsive to drive than past Camry generations, meaning those seeking a more dynamic driving experience should no longer write it off. What's new for 2019? Since the Camry was completely redesigned for 2018, the 2019 model is largely unchanged. A new color, Supersonic Red, has been added, while Blue Crush Metallic is no longer offered. Apple CarPlay is also now standard on all models. The XSE and XLE four-cylinder models now get the larger eight-inch touchscreen and a three-month trial of Sirius XM satellite radio. On the XSE and XLE V6 models, the Driver Assist Package adds a clearance sensor and rear automatic emergency braking. %Slideshow-1031769% What's the interior and in-car technology like? The Camry's interior is one of the more striking and stylish in the segment with swoops and curves all around. With XSE's red leather, the interior is particularly bold and sporty. Despite the wild looks, the controls are all fairly straightforward with plenty of physical buttons and knobs for key infotainment and climate functions. Unfortunately, the infotainment system is a mixed bag. It's responsive enough, but the menus are clunky and not particularly attractive. Apple CarPlay is now standard on 2019 Camrys, which simplifies things for Apple users, but Android Auto is not available at all. How big is it? Most midsize sedans are about the same size on the outside, but that doesn't necessarily translate to the interior. Front seat room is smaller than some of its competitors such as the Nissan Altima and Hyundai Sonata (headroom is particular may be tight), but it makes up for that with rear seat space. With 38 inches of legroom, the Toyota Camry offers more space for rear passengers to stretch than most sedans. The Camry's 15.1 cubic feet of cargo space is fairly mid-pack. It's also worth noting that the Camry Hybrid has the same trunk space as the regular version, which was not the case in prior models. This is the result of the battery pack moving beneath the back seat. What's the performance and fuel economy? The 2019 Toyota Camry is available with two conventional gas-powered engines, and one hybrid powertrain. The standard engine is a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter inline-4 that makes 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque in L, LE, SE and XLE trims. Choosing the sportier XSE trim boosts power and torque to 206 hp and 186 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the front wheels. The L trim gets the best fuel economy with 29 mpg in the city, 41 on the highway and …
