The 2020 Toyota Camry
The 2020 Toyota Camry provides a sporty offering in the mid-size sedan category. Sport isn't solely limited to appearance either. Standard Camry trims pack plenty of power, and the 2020 Camry provides a new offering - the Camry TRD - an additional sport trim with lots of new features. Add a spoiler and an edgy color combo, and drivers will feel ready for the track. Exterior paint options with color pairings for the body and roof help the Camry stand out on the highway, and its fuel economy makes it perfect for long-haul drives and in-town commutes. A comfortably sized interior also makes the Camry an ideal family car while standard Toyota safety features work to keep every passenger safe.
There are 12 Camry models starting with the L. Under the hood, the L, LE, XLE, SE, SE Nightshade Edition and XSE house a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The XLE V6 upgrades, obviously, to a 3.5L V6 with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Hybrid models - the Hybrid LE, SE and XLE - operate with a 2.5L 4-cylinder ECVT Hybrid engine. In the all-new TRD, or Toyota Racing Development Camry, a 3.5 Liter V6 engine with 301 horsepower is offered. Fuel economy maxes out in the Hybrid LE with an estimated 51/53 mpg in city/highway. The L model gets an estimated 29/41 mpg while the TRD sacrifices mileage for sport at an estimated 21/31 mpg in city/highway driving.
In the different trims available, the Camry offers a variety of unique features for a mid-size sedan. For example, the XLE features dual-zone climate control with backseat vents. All models feature access to Apple CarPlay and new in 2020 is Android Auto and Amazon Alexa compatibility. The multi-information display ranges in size from 4.2 inches to 7 inches depending on the model. Fabric seats are standard in the L trim while leather is added in the XLE and XSE packages. The rear seat folds down along a 60/40 split, and a center armrest with cupholders is offered in the premium trims. Premium trims also receive access to three USB ports compared to one in the L model.
No version of the Toyota Camry skimps on safety with many features available across all models. Ten airbags are standard while driver and front passenger seats are designed to lessen whiplash injuries in a crash or emergency braking situation. The vehicle monitors tire pressure and sends direct pressure readouts on the XLE and TRD models. Standard Toyota Safety Sense features across all trims includes a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, lane departure warnings with steering assist, automatic high beam control and dynamic radar cruise control. The Camry has a five star overall crash test rating from the NHTSA with five stars on front driver side and passenger side crash tests.
Prices for the 2020 Camry vary greatly based on the trim chosen. Trim L starts at $24,295 with the LE version moving only a bit higher at $24,840.
