Review: 2022 Toyota Camry 2.5 HEV

They say familiarity breeds contempt, but the truth is that the Toyota Camry is far too ubiquitous even for that. It’s invisible. It blends into the very concrete that paves the parking lots, especially when you get one in silver or gray. It’s the perfect automotive camouflage.

First Drive: 2022 Toyota Camry 2.5 HEV

The Camry has always been a barometer of sorts for Toyota; and each of the Camry generations’ incremental improvements over the years show that the carmaker has almost always leaned on evolution, rather than revolution when it came to their products. But recently, a new kind of thinking has taken over the typically conservative Japanese carmaker. This has resulted in the most advanced, most thoroughly thought-of Camry ever. And surprisingly? It’s technically a refresh.

2020 Honda Accord EL vs Mazda6 Skyactiv-Turbo vs Toyota Camry 2.5 V

With the launch of the 2020 Honda Accord, the Japanese executive sedan “big three” has now seen either a substantial re-fresh or a full-blown model change. Eschewing a large displacement normally-aspirated engine, the Accord has now adopted turbocharged power, following the same path laid down, at least locally, by the Mazda6. Naturally, a spec brawl beckons.

How Much Has the Toyota Camry Changed in 15 Years?

Bold and modern — these are two words that best describe the 2019 Toyota Camry. As the brand’s iconic executive sedan, the Camry has withstood the test of time in terms of delivering both luxury and performance throughout the generations. But just how much has it evolved? For this review, we had the privilege of bonding with the current 2019 model and also taking a trip down memory lane to revisit its predecessor—15 years prior, to be exact, to the year when the big-body design was the talk of the town.

So Why Did the 2019 Toyota RAV4 Get A New Engine While the 2019 Camry Did Not?

The Philippine launch of the 2019 RAV4 opened some questions, not about the RAV4 per se, but about something launched last December: the 2019 Camry. Given both of these models are riding on the Toyota New Global Architecture or TNGA platform, why did Toyota Motor Philippines decide to give its executive sedan a carryover powertrain while the compact SUV gets the new-generation one?

7 Things Toyota Motor Philippines Revealed about the Camry Buyer

The all-new 2019 Toyota Camry has been officially launched (see full specs and details here). The country’s first taste of the new Toyota New Global Architecture or TNGA, it promises to excite the large (or in our terms, executive) sedan market. That being said, it competes in a segment that’s facing irrelevance thanks to the shift towards mid-sized SUVs and crossovers. We managed to sit down with Toyota Motor Philippines’s marketing and product people to find out how they plan to turn the tide with the 8th-generation Camry.

2017 NAIAS: 2018 Toyota Camry Promises More Excitement (w/ 11 Photos)

If there’s one constant criticism leveled against the Toyota Camry is that it’s the automotive equivalent of vanilla ice cream. Though it’s been stylistically been more aggressive in the past few generations, try as Toyota has, it’s still too dull behind the wheel. Well, that’s all about to change as the Camry migrates over to the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) which is poised to inject some driving fun into Toyota’s executive sedan.

Review: 2015 Toyota Camry 3.5 Q

Photos by Ulysses Ang
Why fix if it isn’t broken? That’s more or less the theme of the 2015 Toyota Camry. It’s been the country’s best-selling executive sedan for quite some time. Theoretically, Toyota could put their feet up and call it a day, and it will still sell very well; a nod to the strong recall and reputation of this model. But Toyota’s not giving its competitors any time to catch up. It’s been given a timely nip and tuck just to keep its competitors at bay without straying far from its long-held virtues.

Airbag Recall Hits Toyota, Nissan, Mazda Vehicles; Totals 3.5-M Worldwide

The airbag recall that just hit Honda apparently has larger repercussions. A few hours after Honda announced the recall of its Civic and CR-V models, some of which were sold in the Philippines, the airbag problem seems to encompass Toyota, Nissan, and Mazda vehicles. The total number of recalled vehicles is expected to reach 3.5 million cars worldwide.

Toyota announced that it is recalling 1.7 million cars including the Corolla, Matrix, and Camry. Honda is recalling 1.1 million cars while Nissan is recalling 480,000 cars while Mazda is adding some 45,000 vehicles. All of the said vehicles sourced its airbags from Japan-based Takata Corporation. The same company was subject to a seat belt recall in 1995. Most vehicles affected by the recall were manufactured from 2001-2003.

More details soon.

Toyota Camry Named Korean Car of the Year

News Flash: the Toyota Camry has been voted by the Korea Automobile Journalist Association as the Car of the Year 2013. The medium-sized sedan earned the highest score of 78.75 points for its value on price, performance, safety and fuel efficiency. On top of that, Toyota's Lexus GS and Prius Hybrid were no. 1 in performance and green-car categories, respectively. This is the first time a foreign model has earned this title since the award was presented three years ago.

Moreover, the Camry is one of the best-selling import cars in Korea. During the same period of winning this title, Toyota’s sales in Korea soared over 200% in 2012 compared to the previous year. In the Philippines, the Camry has been the best-selling model in its segment since 2001.

Review: 2012 Toyota Camry 2.5 V

Photos by Ulysses Ang
No one’s denying that the Toyota Camry is the perfect choice for the executive. Aside from a company car friendly price tag, the Camry’s got all the toys for high levels of passenger pampering and promises one of the lowest maintenance cost in its class. If there’s one complaint that almost everyone levels at the Camry, it’s this: it lacks any sort of driver involvement. However, even that’s changed with the all-new model.
