Hybrid with leather seats and CVT transmission.
The 2007 Camry
base model CE includes standard features (US specifications)
such as halogen headlamps with an automatic on/off feature, a tilt and
telescopic steering wheel, a six-speaker 160-watt digital AM/FM/CD
audio system with an auxiliary audio jack and a 2.4L four-cylinder
engine with a five-speed manual transmission. It also comes with
16-inch wheels (steel), no less than seven airbags, a vehicle
immobilizer and four-wheel disc brakes.
The Camry LE adds to
this package an in-key remote keyless entry and eight-way-adjustable
power driver's seat. The V6 engine with dual exhausts is available as
decision to distance the sporty Camry SE from the other grades had a
significant effect upon the chassis specifications being developed for
the new Camry SE.
As was the case in previous
years, LE and XLE use basically the same chassis specs while the SE
uses springs, antiroll bars, shocks and bushings with firmer, sportier
values than those used in the other two grades.
But for 2007, there are other
differences, as well. The SE has a standard full body kit that
positions the car 0.4-inches (10mm) lower than other Camry grades. In
addition, a V-shaped brace is added to the SE's body between trunk and
cabin and stabilizing braces were added to the underbody to increase
the body's torsional rigidity. Finally, to make the SE more appealing
to buyers seeking a more dynamic driving experience, the SE delivers
performance enhanced by underbody aerodynamics borrowed from Toyota's
experience in Formula One.
Tuning the SE chassis
involved making the underbody as flat as possible to smooth the
airflow under the car, and also to increase the speed of the airflow.
Engineers also carefully adjusted the balance between front and rear
downforce for better stability at elevated speeds.
Features standard on the SE
include sporty 17-inch aluminium wheels, its own distinct black,
honeycomb-style grille, ground effects body enhancement, smoked tint
halogen headlamps, unique sport-trimmed interior in dark charcoal or
medium gray with a leather-wrapped, three-spoke steering wheel and
amber-colored optitron gauges.
The XLE's list of standard
features includes an upgraded dual-zone automatic climate controlled
system with steering-wheel controls, a premium 440-watt JBL audio
system with Bluetooth™ technology for hands-free calling, wood-style
trim, moonroof, rear reclining seats, fog lamps and 16-inch aluminium
wheels. Four-cylinder models are equipped with standard seat fabric,
while V6 models feature standard leather-trimmed seats.
