      I am sorry if I came off too crass.
      Sorry we can't all drive over the top diesel manual Lincoln sports car restos

      I feel like this has all happened before.

      That was Ralph Nader, and those snappers can be mean!
      I kept a couple baby snappers for a while. They are cute when young!

      95% of that car looks great, but the lower front grille kills it. WTF were they thinking? The wheels are a little busy as well.

      i'm as much a car guy as the average CL'er, I think....but there's just something about the camry....maybe i'm crazy...but it's got a great back seat*I've got 14 yr old twins)....yet it's got a reasonable exterior footprint...easy to park and place on the road...it's very quiet with a great ride...yet it still has a tiny bit of response to steering and isn't floaty....

      I just like it a lot....and that's the current one...the new one looks even better....

      and so many jokes here about dents...and beige.....and appliance-like....but for not a lot of money, I think it's an extremely agreeably, even slightly luxurious(I admit I have plain taste, though) car...

      That's just one of the front ends. They have at least three front end treatments, iirc.

      That's an Impala, and it looks like a bloated rental car.

      That's because it is a bloated rental car. Does anyone on here actually know a private owner of a current gen Impala?

      TBH, I've had quite a few Impala rentals, including some LTZs and Premieres lately and they aren't bad at all.

      Of course, I could be wrong. Make a case for why, if you like.

      Other than the ugly new Prius; most 2017+ mode cars are really hitting the mark. Consumers have some impressive choices. If I had to buy a medium size sedan it would be down to test drive between the Camary and Accord hybrid. I might go look at the Chevy but I doubt it matches the Honda or Toyota for total quality and value.

      In defense of the Camry.

      My ~30 year-old-father-of-three neighbor bought a two year old 4cyl Camry recently. I was talking to him about it, asking what engine he got, etc.. (the usual TCL type questions), and in the end, I told him that it was a good choice. It fit his needs perfectly. I'm sure he didn't care about my input, but he was curious what my take on it was, since I'm the neighborhood car guy.

      During this conversation, he was surprised that I didn't have anything negative to say. One of the younger guys (car guy) at his work is giving him siht for buying a Camry and wouldn't shut up about it. I wondered at that moment if work car guy was a member here, because the reaction sounded sooooo similar.

      I told neighbor that the next time gar guy brings it up, ask him to suggest something for a guy who: Doesn't give a siht about cars and needs an two year old, inexpensive, reliable, efficient, mid-sized four door sedan.

      Car guy was defeated, as he could only suggest "Camry" and "Accord" once he realized that there is no heart or passion in his decision.

      Camry is good car. Is boring car, but is good car. Not everyone cares about car.

      I love the new Impala's styling, and the new Malibu has grown on me too.

      31k base msrp.

      Base Camary will have a lower cost and a more durable NA Atkins cycle engine. Plus it should return near 40mpg.

      You would need to compare the 2.0t Malibu with a V6 Camary.

      I drove a "Crayola" for a few years, and just as @McMike stated above...it fit the needs at the time.

      100% this.

      There was a time where I would have scoffed at the very thought of recommending a Camcord. As you get older you embrace the concept of "right tool for the right job."

      I nudged my brother-in-law into a CPO Camry last year, despite him grilling me about Passats. He's a great guy that simply doesn't care one iota more than he has to about maintenance, performance, luxury, gizmos, etc.. It's perfect for him.
