Two of my passions are traveling and cars. One of my favorite parts of traveling around the United States has always been getting a rental car. It gives me a chance to try out something new, without the expense of swapping vehicles every time I get the itch. Last weekend, my family and I traveled to Florida for a quick vacation. We were all excited about the beach. Selfishly, I was also excited about test-driving our rented Toyota Corolla. Miami roads offered a great landscape for our weekend test-drive, and here are a few reasons why I really enjoyed my time in our 2011 Camry rental:
Comfort: Most drivers think that the size of a vehicle determines the overall comfort. Toyota Camry drives will tell you that your car does not have to be as big as your boat to be comfortable. The Camry is a well-designed mid-size vehicle. I found that the size provided my family and me with plenty of cabin room, and a good amount of space in the trunk for our luggage. With the advances in technology and design carmakers are creating vehicles that offer drivers a comfortable place for Toyota Camry customers, and their families to relax as they cruise smoothly down the road.
Style: One thing is certain, when you start a family the sports car is quickly phased out. However, it doesnt mean that the young feeling you have on the inside cant still be reflected in the car you drive. Like the Corolla, the Camry is dependable, economical, and has a timeless look. This is one of the reasons used Toyota Corolla and Camry drivers choose the brand.
Affordability: It does not matter if you purchase a new or used certified Toyota, Camry is well equipped and well priced to fit in your budget with four options:
-The Camry LE starts at $21,650
-The Camry SE starts at $22,965
-The Camry XLE starts at $26,725
-The Camry Hybrid starts at $27,050
Just recently, the 2011 Toyota Camry was ranked as one of the top twenty most affordable midsize cars in a recent poll. In 2010, the Toyota Camry was the U.S. News Best Midsize Car for the Money Award for the second year in a row. It is also affordable when filling up at the pump. Getting twenty-two miles in the city and thirty-three miles on the highway, the Camry is solid all around.
Speed: The Camry accelerates quickly on the highway without disturbing the passengers. Merging on Floridas busy multi-lane highways proved to be a piece of cake in the 2011 model.
We had a great weekend in Florida, and after spending several days driving the 2011 Camry, I would recommend that you consider checking out the vehicle if you are in the market for a new car. If an SUV is more your style, Toyota Rav4 drivers would most likely steer you in their direction. Either way, you cant go wrong!
