Toyota has been on a mission to reinvent its image, and the latest iteration of the iconic Camry is a testament to that effort. Say goodbye to the traditional four-door saloon and hello to a car that exudes personality and style.
The ninth generation of the Camry introduces a bold new look that blends elements from other Toyota models like the Prius and Crown. While the door skins may resemble the previous model, everything else has been revamped, from the aggressively sloping windowline to the distinctive front and rear lights.
In the United States, where the car will initially launch, drivers have the option of two different design specifications. The base model showcases its elegance, while the Sport variant adds a touch of athleticism with a lower bumper design, body-colored mesh grille, larger front openings, and the possibility of a striking two-tone paint finish.
But the real excitement lies under the hood. For the first time ever, the new Camry will be exclusively offered with a hybrid powertrain. Toyota’s fifth-generation hybrid system pairs a 2.4-liter four-cylinder petrol engine with two electric motors, delivering a powerful performance. Drivers can choose between front- and all-wheel drive, offering versatility for different road conditions.
Inside the cabin, the changes are equally impressive. A completely redesigned dashboard welcomes occupants, featuring a larger 12.3-inch central touchscreen and a digital instrument cluster. Toyota also focused on enhancing the quality of materials, with soft-touch finishes and a modern aesthetic that elevates the overall design.
While the new Camry will not make its way to the UK, Toyota enthusiasts can find solace in the stylish new Prius. Let us know in the comments if you were hoping for the Camry’s arrival on British shores.
