With the recent unveiling of the 2025 Toyota Camry, Toyota gave us a preview of what to expect from the ninth iteration of the best-selling sedan in America. The Camry no longer comes with a V6 option; it is exclusively hybrid. A completely new interior, a reworked suspension system, and updated styling are also included. This is a detailed summary of all the changes.
Despite the updated design, Toyota assured Motor1 that the Camry is still based on the same TNGA-K platform. As such, rather than being a completely new car, we would consider this a significant update. This is especially clear when comparing the side profiles, which have almost the same appearance. However, other than that, the designers did a good job of setting the two cars apart, such as with the redesigned front fascia. It puts it more in line with other vehicles in the range, such as the Crown and the Prius, by utilizing Toyota’s recognizable “hammerhead” form and thin daytime running lights. Additionally, Toyota updated the option sheet with two new colour possibilities.
The last generation Camry’s three powertrains have been replaced by a new four-cylinder hybrid system. Under the engine, you’ll discover a 2.5-liter naturally aspirated inline-four paired to two electric motors and a lithium-ion battery pack. Toyota says the system can make 225 hp combined, or 232 hp when optioned with all-wheel drive.
While buyers won’t have a choice of engine, they will have a choice of ride setup. Toyota says it’s heavily revised the suspension for “enhanced responsiveness and agile handling.” There are new shocks and specific sport-tuned setups for available sportier trims, allowing for even more stability and handling prowess.
The 2025 Toyota Camry’s interior is where you’ll find the biggest changes. The dashboard and center console have been fully revamped, with a standard seven-inch digital gauge cluster for LE and SE models and a bigger 12.3-inch cluster for XLE and XSE trims. There’s a standard eight-inch touchscreen for the infotainment, with a bigger 12.3-inch screen available. Things like wireless Apple CarPlay, wireless Android Auto, and wireless phone charging come standard.
There are a healthy amount of options too, like an available 10-inch head-up display, a JBL sound system, in-car WiFi, and a digital key feature that allows you to use your smartphone to unlock and start the vehicle. Higher trims like the XLE and XSE get front-side laminated glass to cut down on wind and vibration noise.
Many new safety features, such as Toyota’s Safety Sense 3.0, are standard on the 2025 Toyota Camry. The features include automatic high beams, lane departure alert with steering assistance, lane tracing assistance, road sign assistance, pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, full-speed dynamic radar cruise control, and proactive driving assist, which employs the camera and radar to “provide gentle braking and/or steering to support driving tasks such as distance control between your vehicle and a preceding vehicle, pedestrian, or bicyclist.”
The Camry also has standard features including rear cross-traffic alerts and blind-spot monitoring. If you choose the Premium Plus package on the XLE or XSE trim level, you will receive a panoramic view monitor, lane change assistance, front and rear parking assistance, and traffic jam assistance automatic braking.
So, while the 2025 Camry isn’t exactly “all new,” it’s quite an extensive refresh.
