2025 Toyota Camry Review Canada

Posted on

Toyota Camry Review – Toyota Camry is the brightest car star of this century. It sold more than 400,000 units in the United States last year, topped by Ford and Chevrolet pickups alone. This raises the question: why would Toyota call for a Camry Pitt to stop in the middle of the seventh-generation car’s checkered flag?

2025 Toyota Camry Review

Pat is the answer because it can. With a research and development budget claimed to be 1 million per hour, the world’s largest car company could shower its mid-sized family sedans with financial love, following CEO Akio Toyoda’s deceptive instruction to “build better cars.” There are six more reasons. Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Mazda, Nissan, and Volkswagen all offer excellent mid-size alternatives to the compelling intro camry. In August, Honda loaded its shotgun with 51,075 Accord explosions with additional inventory and generous incentives, beating Camry sales by 6,032 units.

Toyota wants to buff. . . It’s up

So just three years after the last full reorganization, Toyota has fluffed and buffed Camry enough to renew the interest of loyal customers and (hopefully) draw new recruits. The 2025 version we drove to Hawaii’s Big Island lived halfway between a typical midcycle facelift and a clean-sheet overhaul. Each exterior panel except the roof is new. Adding 22 spot welds to the cowl and around the door improves the strength of the unibody. The previous Base L models are dead, and there are more versions with an “S” in their name to celebrate Toyota’s discovery that even Camry buyers can be entertained by more robust driving dynamics. The cost-conscious interior has been upgraded with more soft surfaces, beautiful details, and contemporary electronic gear. Chassis systems — steering, brakes, suspension গ্রহণ take better modifications to better ride and feel. One area not getting attention is the Powertrain: Camry’s 2.5-liter four-cylinder, 3.5-liter V-6, and hybrid propulsion system যা which is reliable and proven, if not exciting চালিয়ে continue without change.

Two front-fascia designs draw attention to this long-neglected model. There is a five-bar treatment for models with an L named and a bee Mao for the coded S. All members of the family have fine hood creases on the side surfaces and folds of upper and lower letters. Lamp treatment বিশেষ especially the running-light slashes embellished in the lower corner of the front সী borders in the race. One bit of chickenery is a wrong quarter-window stuck in each C-pillar. Ironically, Hyundai and Toyota are moving in opposite styling. The 2025 Hyundai Gonata has some support for the bold exterior design just as the Camry molts its irritated skin.

Inside, the Camry catches up with the affordable mid-size sedan over time. The purpose is beautiful-to-touch, providing easy user access across surfaces. The top trimmed layer gets the French seam; All cars get extra soft trim, clearly labeled knobs and buttons, and a rearview camera. Get a 4.2-inch TFT screen in the cluster dial for all driver information, navigation instructions and warning messages except the base LED. The list of available safety gear now includes lane-exit warning, automatic brake assistance, a blind-spot monitor with rear traffic warning and radar-based active cruise control. While you don’t have to search for some residual shiny, stiff, black plastic (there’s something at the base of the windshield where it flashes), the new interior of the Camry is a worthy upgrade, especially in light of the slight price increase.

Older people have dominated the Camry customer base, but at least here’s a concerted effort to welcome them into the information age. The NTune multimedia system includes a 6.1- or 7.0-inch touch screen with voice recognition, Bluetooth streaming, a USB port, and an extensive list of applications. By touching the appropriate icon, you can reset the clock or sync your smartphone. The top 10-speaker, 586 watt JBL sound system is much more hip for seniors for low boomness and improved frequency balance. Nifty pieces of equipment that are optional in several models and standard in some have a nonslip surface located on the center console that uses Kiwi technology to recharge wirelessly compatible mobile devices. Take it, Honda Accord!

New (-ish) camera operation

Thanks to more rigid unibody and more than 30 percent undercarpet sound dedaning, even the base camry is a smooth, quiet runner. All front bucket seats have side slip resistant backrests and grippy coverings. The rear life is admirablely free from the noise of tires and wind, and the three adults in the back seat are comfortably accommodated. Barrels split and even fold over hybrids to extend the trunk of the house. All powertrains behave politely and reasonably well although there is a lack of verve. Avoid the 178-hp four-cylinder if passing other cars is on your agenda, as it tends to keep you hanging in the oncoming traffic lane much longer. The drone that plagued the Toyota Prius is pleasantly silent on all three Camry hybrid trim levels.

Despite the slightly wider wheel track, a half-inch gain in base wheel width, and a stiff base-level front spring, there is no noticeable gain in handling for reporting. The humble suspension retune was originally intended to improve the quality of rides on bumps that are never hard to find around the Toyota Ann Arbor, Michigan, technology center. All Camries travel on all-season radials that prioritize good wet and snow grip over low rolling resistance, high mileage, and dry-pavement traction. The XSE package, which includes 18-inch wheels and tires, is as good as it gets. Here, the steering effort goes up a bit off-center, although more effort is made and the road feel is sadly missing. While it’s reasonable to have 16 and 17 inch wheels and more grip than body control, the front tires ‘slow down!’ When you cheer on a winding road. The brakes have been improved with a new two-stage booster, but it is more calibrated for pedal travel than we prefer for optimal modulation.

Hybrid customers can tap into the new more robust camera exterior design by selecting the SEO version. Although they are limited to 17-inch rolling stock, at least they benefit from better front-to-rear balance due to the weight of the 1.6-kilowatt battery pack marked on the trunk. For many Camry types, the Hybrid is the smart choice for its combined mileage score (41 mpg in LE, 40 in SE and XLE) and the acceleration that beats the 2.5-liter four-cylinder.

Toyota has given a lot of goodwill injections to its most mainstream models. The new Camry should hold well for a few more years against a mid-sized competitive crunch, not to mention relentless crossover attacks. It is encouraging that the XSE V-7 version of the T-sports sedan. Whenever loyal customers see and feel this new model, it is possible that they will find the wavelength of the car enthusiast and look for or demand more serious driving machines as Toyota moves on to the next full camry redesign.

The generational life cycle of Toyota cars and trucks is usually very consistent. Every five or six years, the company usually launches a new version of a given car and leaves it alone until the next redesign, in addition to some light updates of a new headlight design on a chrome strip here and there. The 2025 Toyota Camry represents a significant departure from the norm, however, as Toyota has completely overhauled it just three years after a complete restructuring. Whatever the reason for the change – a good guess would be that Toyota feels the need to have a more competitive Camry this year – the end result is certainly good news if you shop for a 2025 Midsize family sedan.

The changes to the camry are obvious from the outside, where everything except the roof has been re-styled. The Grill T is an indicator of bigger, more prominent and valuable Toyota Avalon and its Lexus corporate cousins. In profile, the Camry has been more sculptural and less slablike, and the rear styling of the car has been smoothed. Overall, we think the Camry looks more refined, premium and bigger. Inside, the overall design of the Camry and the generous passenger space remain unchanged, but Toyota has improved the quality of the plastic – especially the center console – while most door panels are now covered with padded simulated leather or suede (depending on the trim level). Buttons and knobs for climate control are bigger and less like toys than before and as a result, not only are they easier to use but also make a superior look and feel colorful. Also, each camera now gets a classier gauge and a user-friendly NTune touchscreen interface.

The four-cylinder and V6 engines remain unchanged, but Toyota Camry’s body structure and suspension tuning have improved significantly. The result is a more button-down, confident driving experience that Toyota is telling its customers. This latest Camry still won’t be what we call a sporty family sedan like a Mazda 6 or Ford Fusion, but it’s better to be more responsive and generally drive.

This also applies to the popular SEO trim, which not only further dials the driving engagement factor but also makes more aggressive styling quests and pride. For 2025, though, it was joined by an XSE trimming that for the first time allowed customers to pair SE’s visual and suspension enhancements with the greater comfort and convenience features of the more luxurious XLE. It offers a larger amount of customer choice and creates two distinct flavors of the Camry that set it apart in the family sedan category.

Really, standing out is something that Camry hasn’t done in a very long time. If anything, the earlier internal quality and forgettable driving experience distinguishes it in a negative way from top-rated family sedans like the Ford Fusion, Honda Accord, Mazda 6 and Nissan Ultima. The 2025 Toyota Camry, however, corrects a lot of its previous shortcomings, adding a little more Verve and, although we won’t go so far as to declare it a class leader, it puts it squarely in the best-in-class pack.

2025 Toyota Camry Performance and MPG

Every 2025 Toyota Camry Trim comes standard with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 178 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque. Front-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission standard.

In the Edmunds test, a Camry LE with that powertrain travels from zero to 60 miles per hour in 8.3 seconds. The EPA-estimated fuel economy combines 28 mpg (25 cities / 35 highways), which is at least 2 mpg less than its main competitors.

The Camry XSE and XLE can be equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 that produces 268 hp and 248 pound-feet of torque. It has front-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic. A Camry XLE V7 sprints from zero to 60 miles per hour in 8.2 seconds, making it one of the fastest cars in the class. Its EPA-estimated fuel economy is equivalent to the competitors of the 25 MPG combined (21/31).

2025 Toyota Camry Security

Every 2025 Toyota Camry comes standard with antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, front and rear airbags, front and rear screen airbags, front knee airbags and a rearview camera.

Options on the XSE and XLE include a blind-spot warning system paired with a rear cross traffic alert system. The Advanced Technology package adds a lane-exit warning system and a pre-collision system that uses adaptive cruise control sensors to predict an accident, alert the driver and brake if an accident needs to be prevented or mitigated. Optional in XLE is Safety Connect, which adds automatic collision notifications, an emergency help button and a stolen-vehicle locator.

In the official crash test, the Camry received five out of five stars for overall crash protection, four stars for frontal-impact protection and five stars for side-effect protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has given Camry the best possible rating of “good” in its medium-overlap and small-overlap frontal-offset impact tests. The Camry scored a “good” score on the side-effects, roof-strength and head restraint / seatbelt (whiplash protection) tests.

2025 Toyota Camry Driving

With improvements in its body structure, suspension and steering, every 2025 Toyota Camry driver input is more responsive than the previous version and more composing during turn turns. This is especially true for SE and XSE trims, which dial up the driver’s busyness. That’s right, they don’t reach the same level of sharpness given by sportier competitors as the Mazda 6. But that’s pretty okay because these popular trim levels just look like a modern family sedan when you’re behind the wheel, don’t feel like a would-be sports sedan or, at the other end of the spectrum, a big rolling couch.

Both base 2.5-liter four-cylinder and optional 3.5-liter V6 engines provide satisfactory acceleration in a smooth fashion. The transmission downshift is admirably responsive, noting that some competitors are lazy in this regard for the automatic transmission fuel economy.

2025 Toyota Camry Internal

Blessed with one of the most comfortable and spacious cabins in the 2025 Toyota Camry Midsize Family Sedan section. Even taller adults will find plenty of space above their heads and in front of their knees, while a back-facing baby seat will easily fit behind. Although fixed rear headrests facing the front make it difficult to secure the baby seat properly. Space in the trunk, 15.4 cubic feet, is average for a midsize sedan.

In terms of controls, the buttons on the center stack are large, funky, and glove-friendly at a glance, without being too big or ugly. This is especially true of sensitively designed climate control. Each camera gets a standard 6.1-inch NTune touchscreen interface, which controls the audio system, available smartphone-enabled apps and optional navigation system. We would consider very few of these modern interfaces to be truly user-friendly, but NTune is one of the better and simpler interfaces available
