TORRANCE, California — The 2013 Toyota Camry and Camry Hybrid get some modest tweaks, including new soft-touch cabin material on LE and SE grades and an audio display screen now standard on base models. Toyota announced the upgrades this week.

The optional blind spot monitor now gets a rear cross-traffic alert, which aids the driver when backing the car out of a driveway or parking slot.

Toyota said the new soft-touch material is used on the front door panels on the Camry Hybrid LE, as well as on the gasoline Camry LE and SE grades. It replaces harder plastic material used in the 2012 models.

On LE grade models, including the Camry Hybrid, interior armrests now match the interior color, replacing black. On models equipped with leather seating, the door panels feature new stitching accents.

The 6.1-inch audio display screen becomes standard for the Camry L grade and Camry Hybrid LE. On the Hybrid, the screen displays the energy monitor and fuel consumption data.

The Camry was redesigned for the 2012 model year.

The base 2013 Toyota Camry starts at $23,030, including a $795 destination charge. The base 2013 Toyota Camry Hybrid starts at $26,935, including shipping.

The Camry targets the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu, Ford Fusion, Honda Accord and Hyundai Sonata, among others.

Edmunds says: The 2013 Toyota Camry is largely carryover, but there is some effort being made to move away from the use of plastic in the cabin.
