What’s New for 2012

The 2012 Camry is fully redesigned.

The 2012 Toyota Camry has improved in almost every which is excellent news the previous model was disappointing in regards. On the whole, this may like the same package, but been massaged and redesigned to it up to the standards of usability, safety and construction set by the competition, and then and restyled to be a little more But as before, durability and reliability are the key attributes meant to set the 2012 Camry apart from its

You’ll notice that the new offers improved versions of year’s engines: a 178-horsepower four-cylinder and a 268-hp 3.5-liter V6. engines feature a six-speed transmission to deliver better economy. The four-cylinder returns an 35 highway mpg, while the V6 30 mpg on the highway. And yet, despite thriftiness, the Camry’s engines are eager to deliver swift when you need it. There’s a Camry Hybrid, covered in a review.

Within the cabin, the front have been redesigned to be supportive and repositioned to afford rear legroom. However, the difference inside can be seen in and quality. The old Camry suffered subpar interior materials and a uninspired design. The new Camry this downward trend, in the SE and XLE trims, with dramatically build quality and a pleasing of thoughtfully chosen trim textures and materials. Meanwhile, a well-designed touchscreen electronics and several high-tech features set it apart from the pack.

has also set out to address a long-running about the Camry being to drive. Suspension improvements been made to enliven the handling dynamics and make the more composed. It’s not effective — numb and a general disconnected feel the Camry a less desirable car to than most rivals. The to this is the SE, which isn’t so a sport model, but rather the one manages to bring the Camry’s dynamics up to par for the class.

In total, the Toyota Camry is again one of the more appealing family sedans. Still, class is better than and we suggest checking out the competition before settling on a Camry. The Accord and Mazda 6 continue to set the for those who want their car to responsive, while the Hyundai offers more style, refinement and stellar value. the new Volkswagen Passat is bigger and than ever while maintaining its European flavor. The may have corrected many of its faults, but its improved competition choosing one still isn’t the it once was.

Every 2012 Camry features front-wheel and a six-speed automatic transmission, but are two engine choices. Base are powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder produces 178 hp and 170 pound-feet of torque. In performance testing, this brought the Camry from to 60 mph in 8.1 seconds, which makes it one of the four-cylinder midsize sedans. fuel economy is 25 mpg city/35 and 28 combined, which puts the among the class leaders.

Interior Design and Special

The revised interior for the 2012 feels slightly roomier. front pillars increase and narrower door panels up elbow room. Door controls also move allowing knees to move freely. The redesigned front are not only more comfortable and but their thinner backs in more rear seat This, in addition to a nicely seatback angle, helps the match the Honda Accord for the comfortable backseat in the class.

But the notable improvement has been interior design and materials. The mismatch of poorly fitted plastic has been replaced better construction and a more array of textures, trim and decorative stitching. The SE trim in has a certain hip vibe that the hasn’t possessed in, well, ever.

The Camry’s new upgraded system also includes a suite of smartphone-connected services includes features like the search engine, Pandora radio, real-time traffic, and stock information, and the ability to movie tickets or a table at a on the go. (Entune is optional with the Audio package). We’re fond of the Camry’s new touchscreen and accompanying steering wheel which makes operating myriad radio and media choices a snap.

Driving Impressions

In terms of both four-cylinder and V6 engines are similar to last year’s The 2012 Toyota Camry’s new steering (once limited to the feels pretty decent in the V6 and SE But non-SE four-cylinder versions, use an electric-assist steering system a different supplier, feel and somewhat lifeless. On the bright this new Camry feels alert, with a more suspension that feels floaty and disconnected. Still, we recommend the SE. It’s not exactly we’d call sporty, but its do feel more in line the handling and responsiveness of its best
