A bold leader in mid-sized sedans for over 37 years, the Toyota Camry has been refreshed for 2021 in its most diverse model lineup to date, with 20 different variants, each with a touch of luxury and advanced safety across the board.

A refreshed look on the LE and XLE grades differentiates their more comfortable design from the sportier SE and XSE 2021 models. LE and XLE trims now sport brighter colours, defining the lower intake. A new 17-inch alloy wheel design debuts on the LE, while the XLE features a redesigned 18-inch alloy wheel. And on the SE and XSE models, a lower grille of honeycomb mesh replaces the previous diamond shape and the addition of new side vents to accentuate the sportier grades.

A new 2021 Blueprint colour replaces the previous Blue Streak Metallic, while the Camry TRD features an exclusive Ice Edge exterior colour, with a two-tone Midnight Black roof. As for the XSE’s two-toned roof, Toyota offers only Wind Chill Pearl or Silver Metallic with the Midnight Black Metallic roof combination.

Taking a look inside the refreshed Camry, the addition of a seven or nine-inch central touch screen display is new for 2021. Combining audio selection with smart navigation and smartphone-like touch screen icons ensures easy accessibility and operation. The system features Android Audio and Apple CarPlay compatibility, hands-free connectivity, AM/FM radio and advanced voice recognition.

Changes to the interior cabin combine sophistication with functionality, from the expansive outward-facing dash design, accented by a dark wood inlay or patterned metal depending on model grade. XSE V6 or XLE V6 models feature ten-inch coloured heads up display projecting speed turn-by-turn navigation directions and other vital information on the lower portion of the windscreen.

Building on the Camry’s legacy of long-distance seating comfort comes the ratcheted seat design for 2021, with elegant stitching of front and rear seating and ventilated front seats available on XLE V6 and XSE V6 models. Depending on exterior colour choice, interior colour choices range from Ash, Black or Macadamia, while sporty XSE models offer an additional option of Cockpit Red.

Numerous safety features have been implemented in the 2021 Camry, including Toyota’s next evolutionary step towards safety, the Toyota Safety Sense 2.5+ (TSS 2.5+), with featured upgrades to pre-collision and pedestrian detection, from cyclist detention from the car in front, to pedestrian detection in low-light conditions. Intersection detection support has also been added as well as a Full-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) assisting in overtaking slower vehicles smoothly and safely.

The TSS 2.5+ system also features a Blind Spot Monitor used in detecting vehicles positioned in adjacent lanes, a lane departure alert when the vehicles sense departure from a lane without first signaling, and Lane Tracing Assist to centre the vehicle in detected lane markers. An automatic high beam assist is also included within the TSS 2.5+.
