The new Camry had a sportier look, but some of the biggest changes were inside the car, where anti-lock brakes and air bags were now standard. The starting price of a 1997 Camry was $16,818, thanks to a new stripped-down trim level with manual windows and no air-conditioning. The Camry beat the Accord and Taurus to become the best-selling sedan in the U.S. in 1997, with 397,156 vehicles moving off American showroom floors.
