2012 Toyota Camry: Get the Leather-Wrapped Wheel
March 15, 2012
The steering wheel in the Toyota Camry is one of the cabin's better features. Largely, this is because of the smart layout of its entertainment controls. It's also pretty comfortable to hold.
However, that's only when you opt for the leather-wrapped wheel. Notice how the leather nicely meets the silver plastic? Well, with the standard wheel I sampled a few months ago, the lack of leather reduces the thickness of the grips at 3 and 9. That means that silver plastic is essentially raised and tends to dig into your thumbs.
You probably would've wanted a leather-wrapped wheel anyway, but here's another reason to.
