Toyota Camry 2008 interior features

The first thing that attracts anyone to the Camry is its space. The Toyota Camry 2008 doesn't falter in this aspect. It has abundant legroom, hip room, and head and shoulder room. The trunk is also a spectacular 15 cubic feet in volume which won't disappoint those who love traveling. 

The CE trim comes equipped with rear seat folding ability, power accessories maximized to the fullest, cruise control, tilt and telescoping steering wheel, aux jack, a 6 speaker sound system, good air conditioning, and 16-inch steel wheels.

Next, the LE, the most popular of all the trims, has an 8-way power driver seat and keyless entry to add to the standard features listed in the base trim.

On the other hand, the two highest trims, the XLE and SE, have 17-inch alloy wheels, finer suspensions, and reclining seats. These make them stand out. So if you aren't obsessed with gadgets, the LE trim level has got all you need. In fact, since the higher trims don't have rear seat foldability, this validates our recommendations.

Toyota Camry 2008 engine & fuel economy

You have the option of going for a 2.4 liter 4 cylinder engine that puts out 158 horsepower and 161 ib-feet of torque or the 3.5-liter powerful V6 engine with twice the horsepower and the torque in the 4 cylinder engine. But you know that with great power comes great responsibility. Thus, the V6 will tend to consume a lot more fuel than the 4 cylinder engine.

The 2.4-liter 4 cylinder engine records a 31 mpg rating on the highway and 21 mpg in the city while the 3.5 liter V6 manages a 28 mpg rating on the highway and 19 mpg in the city. So weigh your pocket and figure if you can go with speed and spend more money on fuel, or save fuel and manage the speed.
