2012 Toyota Camry: Somewhere for Everything

April 09, 2012

I love it when cars offer places for all my stuff between the front seats, facilitating grab and go. Yes, even though I carry a big purse, I still need a spot for my garage key card, iPhone, the occasional smoothie and, in our 2012 Toyota Camry's case, the key fob. And the Camry has all that, including a felt-lined change drawer and the storage areas in the door. So even when you have a passenger, you don't have to get creative with where you put your paraphernalia.

1) Front of the gearshifter: perfect for smartphones (it's where the USB/aux jacks are located), keys, wallets, and stuff that you'd otherwise put in a cupholder if both weren't already taken.

2) Cupholders

3) Shallow dish with door for keycards, change, keys.

4) Huge center console

It's something car owners adapt to with regard to their own cars. You don't have a change drawer or a bonus storage area forward of your gearshifter? No big deal. But if you jump in a bunch of different cars like we editors do, you learn to appreciate extra storage when it's offered.
