The Camry, a mainstay of Toyota's lineup for decades, is a midsize sedan/wagon with seating up to 5. With optional all-wheel drive (AWD), it can easily handle mud, snow, and sand. The Camry has technology that is now expected: Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Exceeding the average MPG (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and the carbon footprint. Having more than average horsepower for its class, the Camry packs some oomph. Toyota offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.


The 2021 Toyota Camry is average compared to all vehicles.

Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2021 Toyota Camry has a score of 80, implying a 0.042% chance of driver death (3.7% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2021 Toyota Camry has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0418% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 4.7686%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0418% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 4.7686% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2021 Toyota Camry is 13% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other sedans, hatchbacks, and wagons, the 2021 Toyota Camry is 19% less likely to result in a fatal accident.

Active safety features with Toyota's Safety Sense greatly enhance occupant safety by reducing the likelihood of a crash. The following active safety system is included even on lower trims/versions of the 2021 Toyota Camry: Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD). Some safety features are optional on the 2021 Toyota Camry--- although they add to the cost, one should consider the benefits of Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA) and Blind Spot Monitor.

Another vehicle feature may make a vehicle safer, even if not at the forefront of technological advances. Side mirror turn signals are optional on the Toyota Camry. They alert other vehicles of your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other vehicle's driver to prevent an impending accident with you.
