The Toyota Camry is all-new for the 2018 model year and offers a litany of new features along with a newfound focus on style and, to a degree, performance. Given this, we think it's a great purchase for buyers looking for a modern, attractive midsize sedan, and we love it for its standard active safety features and bold, new styling. Base-level Camrys start at $23,645 and reach just over $38,000 in fully loaded V6 XSE configuration. Below, we outline what we think buyers should look for in a Camry at the $35,000 mark.

Year

With $35,000 to spend, this one is a no-brainer -- opt for a brand-new 2018 or 2019 Camry. With this budget, buyers will have a few different trim levels to choose from that each come with great features.

Powertrain

The 2018 Camry is offered with three different powertrains, all of which are mated to an efficient 8-speed automatic transmission. The base-level engine is a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder making 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque, good for 32 miles per gallon overall in combined city and highway driving. If you're looking for more power, the Camry V6 is an option that still allows buyers to stay under the $35,000 mark. The V6 makes 301 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque and reaches 60 miles per hour in a scant 5.8 seconds. This extra power comes at the expense of fuel economy, though, as the Camry V6 earns 26 mpg combined. Buyers wanting optimal efficiency can look to the Camry Hybrid, which earns up to 52 mpg combined and is available in a number of trim levels.

For $35,000, buyers should opt for either the V6 or a fully-loaded hybrid model.

Trim Level

At the $35,000 mark, buyers are looking at an upper-trim-level Camry of the XLE or XSE variety. XSE models offer more aggressive exterior styling, large 19-inch wheels, paddle shifters, a transmission with sport and eco modes, an 8.0-in infotainment screen and a large panoramic sunroof. Also available on the XSE is an adrenaline-inducing red leather interior and a contrasting black roof.

XLE models shift the focus away from sportiness and focus instead on luxury, offering 18-in wheels and a less aggressive body kit, but they are still available with most of the features offered on the XSE.

Conclusions

A brand-new 2018 or 2019 model is the right choice for buyers looking for a Toyota Camry at the $35,000 price point. For $35,000, buyers can reap the added benefits of the Camry's available V6 engine coupled with the sporty XSE V6 trim level, the subdued XLE V6 or a fully-loaded XLE hybrid model, which offers considerable savings in the area of fuel economy, along with comforts like leather seats, a head-up display and a 360-degree bird's eye camera.
