I was looking at the new camry for 2007. if it stays this way, i may trade in the tC for it. it has a nice design, and an impressive MPG ratings for the standard and the hybrid. up to 43mpg city mileage. thats crazy. Also, for the audio people,. all the camrys will come standard with a 160-watt system and a standard cd changer. There will also be projector headlights on the new camry

I think that it looks a lot better then the current model. But, I would keep the TC. But, the option is yours.

I like the new camry.

However... are you prepared for a first year change type of car?

Also, the hybrid will pump up the cost for the car significantly.

going hybrid isnt always the most cost effective way to operate a vehicle. consider the purchase point and the relative fuel costs for your driving. if they dont offset each other, whats the point?
unless you are a tree hugger, then it makes sense from global viewpoint.

for all those children in third world countries assembling batteries with inadequate personal protective equipment, and all the toxic waste caused by the heavy metals extracted from the earth, smelted in poorly controlled conditions, and combined with a hazardous acid in a huge lump of plastic and metal. Yeah, that makes a lot of sense from a global perspective...

You don't really think batteries are cheap because they've figured out how to make them safely do you?

Is it just me, or has the camry only gotten bigger, and bigger, and BIGGER? My god. It's bigger than older versions of the avalon. Sorry, it may look nice--if you're 50, but I'll stick with my tC. That camry needs to go on a diet.

It's just you.
I understand where you're coming from, but it's amazing what talented designers can make you believe by changing the lines and angles of a vehicle. Check out the Camry's dimensions for the last 18 model years:

2007 Camry LE - 189.2" long, 71.7" wide, 57.5" high, 3,637 lbs.
2006 Camry LE - 189.2" long, 70.7" wide, 58.7" high, 3,340 lbs.
2005 Camry LE - 189.2" long, 70.7" wide, 58.7" high, 3,340 lbs.
2004 Camry LE - 189.2" long, 70.7" wide, 57.9" high, 3,296 lbs.
2003 Camry LE - 189.2" long, 70.7" wide, 57.9" high, 3,296 lbs.
2002 Camry LE - 189.2" long, 70.7" wide, 57.9" high, 3,296 lbs.
2001 Camry LE - 188.6" long, 70.1" wide, 55.1" high, 3,097 lbs.
2000 Camry LE - 188.5" long, 70.1" wide, 55.4" high, 3,175 lbs.
1999 Camry LE - 188.5" long, 70.1" wide, 55.4" high, 3,241 lbs.
1998 Camry LE - 188.5" long, 70.1" wide, 55.4" high, 3,241 lbs.
1997 Camry LE - 188.5" long, 70.1" wide, 55.4" high, 3,219 lbs.
1996 Camry LE - 187.8" long, 69.7" wide, 55.9" high, 3,219 lbs.
1995 Camry LE - 187.8" long, 69.7" wide, 54.9" high, 2,910 lbs.
1994 Camry LE - 187.8" long, 69.7" wide, 54.9" high, 3,219 lbs.
1993 Camry LE - 187.8" long, 69.7" wide, 55.1" high, 3,252 lbs.
1992 Camry LE - 187.8" long, 69.7" wide, 55.1" high, 3,053 lbs.
1991 Camry LE - 182.1" long, 67.4" wide, 54.1" high, 3,086 lbs.
1990 Camry LE - 182.1" long, 67.4" wide, 54.1" high, 2,811 lbs.

The 2007 Camry is significantly heavier than prior models, but not significantly larger. As you can see, the 2007 actually is the same length, one inch wider, and 0.8" shorter than the 2006. In fact, the Camry's dimensions remained essentially unchanged from 1997 through 2006, and even from 1992 through 1996. The last major increase in size was in the 1992 model year.

Sure, the dimensions have increased slightly since 1992, but I really don't think that 1.4" in length, 2" in width (1" before this year), and 2.4" in height is what you've been noticing; I think it's the changes in styling over the year.

Boy was that a big waste of time to prove a point I don't care about at all.
