Toyota officially unveiled the 2012 Camry.
The 2012 Camry is still pretty conservative looking (especially compared to the extroverted styling of the Hyundai Sonata, for example), but its new sheetmetal is understatedly handsome. And while the 2012 Camry's exterior dimensions are basically the same as the 2011's, incremental tweaks inside have actually increased overall interior volume by two cubic feet. It's not just roomier, either. Subtle changes like reshaping the pillars help deliver very good outward visibility, too.
The new 2.5-litre four-cylinder ‘Toyota Direct Ignition’ petrol engine that Toyota say is both more powerful and more fuel-efficient, but details of its output won’t be released to the press until nearer to the launch date in November. However, we suspect that the US version, which develops 133kW and 230Nm, will be similar, if not identical to what we can expect for Australian-built versions.
The 2012 Camry's single biggest improvement is its interior. Rather than an exercise in computer-aided ergonomics, the cabin's styling looks as though it was created by a human -- a stylist, even -- able to convince the bean counters to splurge a little. There's an unnecessary, but hugely welcome, band of contrasting thread stitched into the Camry's attractive, horizontally themed upper dash. The center stack pours down over the middle of the dashboard, riding atop the rest of the soft-touch material. It feels several classes richer than the last Camry's cabin, and the elegant styling sacrifices nothing in terms of usability.
