The all-new Toyota Camry is here and aims to be the Camry that Australian car buyers really want to have in their driveway.

Gone (mostly) are the dull driving manners and conservative styling…you might even say the new Toyota Camry is stylish and even fun to drive.

But, have Toyota gone too far with this new-gen model and produced a car that will upset Camry traditionalists? Perhaps.


As you can see in the photos the new Camry is a good-looking vehicle with eye-catching styling particularly at the front and rear.

The new car also sits down lower on the road and the top of the doors are noticeably lower to the ground than previous models.

This also helps provide the inside of the car with a bright and airy feel.

The SL grade comes with a small boot spoiler that works well with the new looks, while the dual exhaust and 18″ alloys are the icing on the cake.

The Toyota engineers have provided a suitably roomy cabin for most mid-size car buyers in the new car.

Legroom, shoulder room and head room up front all get a pass mark, the rear is perfect for two and gets a bit squeezy if there’s a “piggy in the middle”.

Rear legroom is also adequate, without being amazing.

The seats are comfortable, though I thought the front seats could do with a slightly longer seat base for extra comfort.

Top marks to Toyota for keeping the traditional speedometer and tachometer and introducing a large digital driver info screen
