When you’re looking for the best sedan to drive around Birmingham, look no further than the Toyota Camry. Toyota has done it again, improving on the best-selling Camry for 13 of the past 14 years. The 2012 Camry receives a full redesign for the lineup. Almost every element of the 2012 Toyota Camry has been improved or refreshed. Anywhere the Toyota designers and engineers thought they could improve on the existing Camry, they did. It’s lighter, safer, roomier and more fuel efficient.
2012 Toyota Camry Review and Features
Overall, the Camry boasts improved features, plus an improved ride and more responsive driving characteristics. Here are a few of the features we like:
- The front “A” pillars are narrower and stronger for improved visibility.
- A lighter Camry means better performance from the standard four-cylinder engine.
- Ten standard air bags puts the 2012 Camry at the top of the safety ratings
- The Entune System provides seamless app integration
- Hands-Free Bluetooth Connectivity and an awesome sound system
The Hybrid Camry received the most attention under the hood. There’s a new 2.5-liter four cylinder with 156 hp and 156 lb-ft of torque (an increase of 9 hp and 18 lb-ft of torque), which uses cooled exhaust gas recirculation to improve fuel economy. Making it a more significant part of the model lineup, Toyota is offering the 2012 Hybrid Camry in both LE and XLE trims. It’s both better-performing and more efficient. The mileage improvement is phenomenal: 43 mpg city, 39 highway* for the LE. Toyota’s internal tests have found minimum fuel consumption rate to be better than the Prius’, and it shaves a half-second off the Camry Hybrid’s 0-to-60-mph time.
