Performance on Dry Pavement
The Camry AWD weighs about 165 pounds more than the equivalent front-wheel-drive variant; however, most consumers won’t notice the added heft. In fact, when driving the Camry on paved roads around the city and on the highway, there was no discernable difference in performance between the front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive versions. The AWD is available when needed, and it does not hinder the drive in any way when not engaged. That said, fuel economy does take a hit — the AWD Camry LE and SE are rated at 25 mpg city / 34 mpg hwy / 29 mpg combined. This is about 3 mpg less than the FWD equivalent.
