DRIVEN AN AVERAGE OF ONLY 13,300 MILES PER YEAR!
Compared to newer, sportier coupes, the 2008 Toyota Camry Solara is beginning to show its age; however, the competitively priced Solara convertible remains a good value for buyers who'd rather have a roomy backseat than a retractable hardtop.
Usually, the two-door variants within a model line are flashier and sportier than their four-door counterparts. This was true of the Toyota Camry Solara coupe and convertible right after they were redesigned back in 2004. Since then, though, they've been upstaged by the Camry sedan, which grew more powerful in last year's overhaul. The injustice continues into 2008, as the Solara siblings stand pat while winds of change swirl around them. Rival import-brand manufacturers have launched better-performing, edgier-looking coupes, and relatively affordable hardtop convertibles are crowding into soft-top Solara price territory.
