Inside the model, more space is spared for rear legroom, a newly designed touchscreen electronics interface as well as more hi-tech devices are installed to assist its driver.
To ensure the handling dynamics, Toyota has also shown arduous efforts to improve suspension system. However, the numb steering, then somehow disconnected feel is witnesses while driving a Camry Muscle 2012.
Another source of critics come from the US car news which synthesizes comments from experienced car drivers. All interviewed reviewers confirm the Muscle’s fuel economy and respectable ability of acceleration either on streets or on highways. Though V6 engine seems to be more powerful, the 4-cylinder one is more favoured by general customers. Especially, these automobiles indicate an excellent EPA-estimated record of 25/35 mpg city/highway.

- Username: Tony
This car is an affordable and reliable means to get from point A to point B. I've had the car for 2 years and I've put 40,000 miles on (currently at 130,000 mile)…Outside of regular maintenance I have only had one very minor repair to do- it was a valve in the vacuum system. At 130,000 the car feels confident and solid, starts well every time, acceleration is adequate although nothing to brag about. During the summer months I average about 29mpg- mainly highway millage…. I'm confident putting my newborn in the car, insurance is low, and I'll definitely buy again. I've had just about every brand - now I stick with Toyota.

Stylish car with the silver color. Quite comfortable for a car, and this is from driving a Lexus SUV for 14 years. Handles like a dream. Very quick acceleration with the 6cyl.
