Considering a 2007 Camry XLE. Have not driven it yet, but would like to know from someone the differences bet. the SE and the XLE, particularly regarding comfort and ride. Never owned a Toyota, and right now we have two Honda Accords. One, a quasi museum piece 1986, and the baby a 1993. Very happy with both, but the 86 is having some transmission problem. Thinking of Camry for the more comfortable ride. Any input? Thanks.

I'm not stressing, just giving the facts instead of guesses, suppositions and opinions.

blindmantoo... i have charcoal leather as well, would have prefered cloth. The black looks fine with the SE grille. i wasn't a huge fan of the SE grille to begin with, so i think the black color of the exterior makes the grille look even more inconspicuous, which for me is a good thing.
bigd58... my msrp was for a V6 SE, correct. in Missouri.

I never told you to not stress. I was simply telling actual car-buyers that 1 dB is nothing to cancel an order due to a more noisy interior, or whatever it be... 5 horsepower... 2 lb-ft of T... .2 seconds faster acceleration... you get the idea. Noticeable? Arguably yes and no. Meaningful?.......

Thanks for the info. You are the proud owner of virtually the exact type of Camry I hope to purchase this summer! Please update on your driving impressions from time to time, thanks again.

I just picked up a 2007 Camry XLE last week, and I must say, it was quite the upgrade from my 2004 Camry LE. I'm really enjoying it. Neither me nor my wife really like leather, so we opted for cloth. The suspension is AWESOME. The ride is quite smooth compared to my other vehicle, and I find the seats a tad more comfortable. Going to be great on those long trips across the state!
#2653 of 5338 I like the LE Camry better

I prefer the SE Camry, but I don't like the blacked out grill. So if I decide to buy a Camry it's probably going to be the LE model.
I still hope that Toyota puts more effort in the quality of the fit and finish on these cars. I am hoping that the one that I purchase if I do get one will be a Japanese made LE model with the 5 speed manual.

Just went from a 2000 Accord to 2007 Camry XLE. Was planning on another Accord but decided to drive the Camry first. No comparison in ride quality. It really depends on whether you like to feel like you are in a car or a living room. For some feeling the road is preferable. For me, with a long commute, the living room with great surround sound won out. Will say the visibility is not as good in the Camry. Only had the car a few days, but so far I love it. Expect the same reliability from the Camry I have had with the Accord (130,000 miles and no unscheduled maintenance).

Seems like several of us are thinking the same thing. Black SE V6 with Charcoal leather.....NICE!
Black SEs should minimize 'the grille'
