May be best Camry yet!!
By piratemorgan on


2012 Toyota Camry SE 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


I say "may" because Toyota has just a little work left to do with this generation. Comparing to a previously owned 2010 Camry SE 4-cylinder---
Exterior: The new bodywork is stylish (didn't reinvent the wheel here), love the new front fascia (SE only, not fond of LE or XLE front fascia)
Interior: vastly improved
Performance: better downshifts, car allowed to coast now, still has mpg saving abrupt upshifts dealt with by mashing down gas pedal a little more. Nothing like having a tranny bog down a fine tuned 4-cyl.

Best Features

Improved ride without sacrificing handling, Much improved interior, Improved rear leg room at no cost to front passengers, Improved front knee room, Touchscreen radio and Bluetooth Phone standard, Heated side mirrors standard, But past standard features removed (ALL auto up / down windows, dual exhaust, door sill chrome accents, power driver seat). Loosened up seat belt pre-tensioners, no more collar bone soreness!!!

Worst Features

More HP from 4-cyl without "turboizing", Get Convenience Pkg. without having to get Entune / Navi , Better under hood cladding / covers... nothing like the first thing you see is an exhaust manifold with huge honkin' welds staring at you. Almost thought there was a "cover" missing. Give back past standard features. Revert back to plastic rear deck cover, current carpeted one catches bugs and hair.

The bodywork is aredymamic which looks plain but functions like a slick wedge-it why it's so quiet, get's compact mpg and handles so well!
