Although the new generation of this popular mid-size sedan came less than a year ago, it looks like we could easily see some changes already on the 2020 Toyota Camry. This model has always been among class leaders and the new version just confirmed its status even more. Thanks to the new architecture, it offers far better driving dynamics, which was probably the biggest weakness of the previous generation. Of course, there is a new styling, as well as new interior with even more standard features. The engine lineup has been updated and now includes a highly-efficient hybrid version as well.
The current model might seem very fresh to some but if we consider Camry’s usual production cycle, it won’t be any surprise to see it refreshed already for the third year of production. Of course, this update won’t bring any significant novelty in terms of styling but 2020 Toyota Camry could come with a bunch of subtle changes. Most of these novelties would come at the front, where we could see some tweaks to the lighting group, updated grille and slightly reshaped bumper. Rest of the car will probably continue in the same way, though we could expect things like new exterior colors, rims design, and similar things.
The 2020 Toyota Camry should continue with the same interior design. We don’t expect bigger changes on this roomy cabin, which is also full of standard equipment. In terms of legroom, this model stands somewhere in the middle, compared to other mid-size sedans. It definitely can accommodate taller passengers, but if look for a generous rear bench, check models like Mazda6 or Chevy Malibu. In terms of standard features, this model seems to be on par with its toughest rival, the 2020 Accord. Compared to Honda’s sedan, it lacks in terms of smartphone integration and that is one of the possible novelties for the 2020 Camry.
When it comes to the powertrain, there are two gasoline units in the offer. The first one is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder unit, which is good for 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. If you prefer more power, there is a well-known 3.5-liter V6 unit. You can count on more than 300 horses. Besides gasoline units, 2020 Toyota Camry will also come with a hybrid powertrain. This system combines the same four-cylinder engine with an electric motor and delivers a total output of 208 horses. For comparison, the Accord Hybrid has 4 horses more, while the Camry is better in terms of fuel economy. Thanks to a new architecture, the new-generation Camry has significantly improved driving dynamics. We can say it is finally on par with its closest rival in this aspect. However, it costs $3,000 more, so we would say that Accord still seems like a better deal.
2020 Toyota Camry Release date and Price
Despite the potential update, we don’t expect any earlier arrival. So, the new 2020 Toyota Camry should hit the market in late 2019. Base models should go around $23,500, while a hybrid version is close to $30,000.
