The Toyota Camry, the car of the year, has pleased many costumers, but can a college student get that quality? The answer is surprisingly yes.

The Toyota Camry has five different models that you can buy. There is the Camry CE, LE, SE, XLE and the Camry Hybrid. Each model comes with different features and are at different prices.

The Camry CE is the cheapest, coming in at $18,270. Despite the low price the Camry still has most of the safety features that the other models have. The CE comes with many standard features that other cars do not have as standard.

One of the exterior standard features of the Toyota Camry is the 16-inch steel wheels and full wheel covers. Another external feature is the high solar energy absorbing glass, which many cars do not have.

Interior standard features include a tilt/telescopic steering wheel with audio and climate controls. Defroster-linked CFC-free air conditioning with dust and pollen filter also comes with the Camry CE. The Camry CE also comes with two 12V auxiliary power outlets.

The most important part of a car is not the exterior or the interior. It is the safety features found in the car. The Toyota Camry won the car of the year award for the safety features it includes.

One of the many standard safety features that come with the Camry CE is the airbag system. The airbag system includes front and side airbags, but the airbag system also includes knee airbags, which is very rare.

The Camry CE also comes with a direct tire pressure monitor system. This allows us to be able to avoid dangerous flats and tie blowouts on the road.

Another important safety feature that is included in the Camry CE is the child restraint system in the rear seat. Child safety is usually left to minivans, but the Toyota Camry is one of the exceptions to the case.

The base price of the Camry CE is $18,270, however the actual price is a little higher. The Total MSRP, the suggested sale price for retailers, is $18,850. The price, however, is up to each individual retailer so the price will vary.
