Toyota unveils 2012 Camry


The seventh generation Camry features subtle design changes, more spacious interior and tweaked engines

The new Toyota Camry and Camry Hybrid will come in four model grades — the entry-level L, value-driven LE, premium XLE and sporty SE grades. The Camry Hybrid will be offered in LE and XLE grades.

Style-wise, not a lot has changed. The dimensions are the same, but you'll notice slightly sharper lines and more angular headlights. The SE variant has an aerodynamic body kit, a three-spoke steering wheel with paddle shifters, and metallic trim.

Inside, the cabin has a new dashboard, redesigned seats, Bluetooth/USB connectivity and a 6.1-inch Entune infotainment system.

Under the hood, three engines are available. The entry-level 2.5-litre four-cylinder produces 178hp (133kW), which is an increase of 9hp, and 170 lb-ft (230Nm) of torque.

The 3.5-litre V6 rewards drivers with 268hp (200kW) and 248 lb-ft (336Nm) of torque.

The hybrid has a 156hp (116kW) 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine and a 141hp (105kW) electric motor.
