The Toyota Camry update shows improvements in style and stability, but the biggest move forward is in the cabin tech. Toyota includes its new Entune system, along with improved navigation, audio system, and voice commands.
The Camry has been a bread-and-butter car for Toyota, selling very well, so the 2012 update is not changed radically from the previous generation. In fact, Toyota keeps the same engines, but adds new cabin tech and some design flair.
The previous-generation Camry had a bump on the front, topped by its badge. That bump has been deemphasized for 2012, and more aggressive-looking intakes sit below the bumper. Toyota also made the A pillars thinner for better visibility.
CNET's review car came with Toyota's 3.5-liter V-6, which makes 268 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque. Most people will probably want to go with the available 2.5-liter four-cylinder, which gets better fuel economy. Although we find the new Camry Hybrid is a perfect mix of power and stellar fuel economy.
