The midsize sedan battle just got a little more heated with the introduction of the 2017 Toyota Camry, which we'll compare with the 2017 Ford Fusion and the 2017 Honda Accord Sedan. For starters, when you're shopping for a midsize sedan you want a car that saves you money on gas and makes you feel better about supporting the economy when you purchase it. On both counts, the 2017 Toyota Camry is superior to the 2017 Ford Fusion and the 2017 Honda Accord, as it gets the best fuel economy with 24 mpg city, 33 mpg highway and finished #1 in Cars.com's "2016 American-Made Index," as the 2016 Camry was first with 75 percent of its parts purchased and constructed in the U.S.
Besides the win for being the most "American-Made Car" for 2016, the Camry's second straight year doing so, it carries the same price tag in 2017 models as it did in 2016, even with additions for the new model year like making the Entune Audio Plus with Connected Navigation standard for XLE and XSE trim levels and making the Blue Streak Metallic color available for the SE and XSE trims. On the other hand, the 2017 Accord's prices rose from 2016, and some of the available trims for the 2017 Fusion rose in price from 2016. Since the 2017 Camry's pricing is staying the same as it was for 2016, you get more tech at the same cost. Like available voice-command navigation and a 10-speaker JBL GreenEdge audio system.

The Toyota Camry has long been known for providing the maximum value and amenities for drivers, but upgrades for 2017 take the sedan to greater heights. Another tech upgrade for two model trims (XLE, XSE) also includes adding Qi Wireless Smartphone Charging.
Another edge the 2017 Camry has over the 2017 Accord and the 2017 Fusion is it has the best blend of performance and interior room. The 2017 Camry tops out at 268 HP in top-line models, which bests the Fusion's standard models, while the 2017 Camry also has 102.7 cubic feet for passengers, which is a smidge less than the Fusion but easily tops the Accord's top-line trims.
When you combine the features of the 2017 Toyota Camry – its superior fuel economy, its tech upgrades for no increase in price, and the power at its disposal, you have the sedan that has been the best-selling in the U.S. for 14 years in a row – and that's because people like yourself recognize quality when they drive it.
