Exterior Design and Features

First impressions count, right? Well, the Camry doesn’t disappoint. While it may not have the flashiest launch, it’s steady and smooth.

Powered by a 2.5 L 4-cylinder engine and two electric motors, it delivers a combined 225 horsepower and 163 lb-ft of torque. Sure, it’s not the most powerful out there, but it gets the job done.

One thing that caught our attention is how quiet and refined the Camry is. Toyota has clearly put in the effort to dampen any engine noise, making for a serene driving experience. Plus, the exterior got a refresh with new headlights, tail lights, and grille. It’s a fresh take on an already iconic design.


Speaking of design, let’s talk about those wheels. Toyota has seriously upped their game in this department. The Camry offers different wheel options depending on the trim, and they all look fantastic. We’re especially digging the two-tone color scheme with a black roof – it’s a modern twist on a classic look.

One standout feature is the variety of wheel options available, ranging from 17-inch alloys to 19-inch black-painted wheels, depending on the trim level.

LE17-inch alloy wheels
XLE18-inch alloy wheels
XSE19-inch black-painted wheels
TRD19-inch matte black alloy wheels

Interior Comfort and Technology

Inside the 2025 Camry, you’ll find a leather-wrapped steering wheel with all the controls you need at your fingertips. We appreciate the inclusion of a physical volume knob – no more fiddling with touch-sensitive controls. And while the climate controls being on the left side took some getting used to, it’s a small price to pay for the overall comfort of the cabin.

One gripe we have is the absence of a sunglass holder. It’s a minor inconvenience, but worth mentioning nonetheless.

On the bright side, the interior materials feel high-quality, and the available red leather upholstery adds a touch of sportiness.

While the climate controls are conveniently located, some may find the placement on the left side of the center console takes some getting used to. Additionally, the absence of a sunglass holder is a minor inconvenience, but one worth noting.

When it comes to driving, the Camry delivers a balanced experience. The addition of a sport mode livens things up a bit, but don’t expect it to transform into a sports car. It’s a family sedan through and through – comfortable, reliable, and efficient.

Under the hood, the 2025 Camry is powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine paired with two electric motors, delivering a combined output of 225 horsepower and 163 lb-ft of torque.
