In our quest for car technology, we've seen Hyundai's meteoric rise, Ford's innovative cabin features, and Mercedes-Benz's amazing driver assistance features. Then there's America's best-selling car, the Toyota Camry. Far from the cutting edge, the Camry has done well over the last decade based on its reputation for reliability and relatively low price. But as the competition heats up, those factors may not be enough to keep it on top.

In our review car, we found a Bluetooth phone system with limited features and iPod integration that worked poorly. The most cutting-edge feature was Bluetooth audio streaming. While the Camry is still a comfortable and very drivable car, looking at the features and value of a Hyundai Sonata or Ford Fusion, it's difficult to see how Toyota will keep up.
