First Look: 2025 Toyota Camry

Toyota has pulled the curtain back, unveiling a completely redesigned version of its popular midsize sedan. For the first time in the Toyota Camry’s history, it will only be offered with a hybrid powertrain and all-wheel drive will be offered with the hybrid setup.

The new sedan takes on Toyota’s new family look, with thin headlights similar to those on the Prius, Crown and bZ4X. The current generation dates back to 2017, and its segment has seen monumental changes since then, with the departure of several rivals from the marketplace.

Read on to learn more about the redesigned 2025 Toyota Camry sedan.

The Basics

  • Type: Four-door midsize sedan
  • Seating Capacity: 5
  • Hybrid System: 2.5-liter four-cylinder gas engine and two electric motors
  • Drivetrain: Front- or all-wheel drive
  • Horsepower: 225 (FWD), 232 (AWD)
  • Trim Levels: LE, SE, XLE, XSE

Why Is the 2025 Toyota Camry Important

While SUVs dominate U.S. sales charts for many automakers, sedans are still a considerable part of the sales mix. Through the third quarter of 2023, Toyota sold 217,975 Camrys, nearly equaling the sales of all of its other car models combined. Over the same period, it sold 302,831 RAV4s.

By comparison, through the first nine months of 2023, there were 152,202 Honda Accords sold.

The Camry offers shoppers an alternative to an SUV, with a lower ride height and the security of a trunk.

Exterior Design

With C-shaped running lights and a wide, horizontally oriented front-end design, the new Camry will look right at home next to the Toyota Prius, bZ4X and Crown. A pair of stacked LED headlights sit just outside the accent lights.

The car’s proportions appear similar to the current model, which is not a surprise, as it rides on the same basic platform as before. Like the current model, it will be available in solid color and two-tone paint schemes with a contrasting black roof. The base LE model is fitted with 16-inch wheels. Upper trims get 18- or 19-inch rims.

Crisp trunk lines, new LED taillights and a very short trunk lid give the 2025 Camry an updated look.

What’s Under the Hood?

All 2025 Toyota Camrys will be powered by the fifth generation of the company’s hybrid drive system. They’ll employ a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and electric motors to make 225 horsepower in front-wheel-drive models and 232 horsepower in Camrys with all-wheel drive.

All-wheel-drive Camrys will feature an independent motor to power the rear wheels, so there’s no need for a cabin-space-robbing mechanical driveshaft.

The new hybrid sedan will be more powerful than the previous hybrid and produce more horsepower than the current gas-only Camry’s base engine. However, it won’t make nearly as much horsepower as the current model’s optional V6, which makes 301 horsepower. Toyota will not offer the V6 in the 2025 Camry. The company was the last to offer a V6 in a mainstream midsize sedan.

Fuel Economy

Toyota has not yet announced fuel economy numbers for the redesigned Camry. The current 2024 Toyota Camry Hybrid earns ratings as high as 51 mpg in the city and 53 mpg on the highway, though its hybrid engine and motor are not as powerful as the 2025 model’s.

Interior Design and Passenger Space

Toyota has revamped the Camry’s interior, though many touches will remind you of the current model, including a traditional shift lever in the center console. The previous generation’s sweeping accents gave way to a sharper and more formal horizontal motif.

The Camry retains its five-seat interior. Toyota hasn’t released details, but we don’t expect the new Camry’s interior room to differ significantly from the current Camry.

Base LE models are fitted with cloth upholstery, while the SE trim features SofTex synthetic leather seats. The higher-end XLE will feature leather seats with Dinamica microfiber inserts, and at the top of the line, the XSE features genuine leather seats available in black or vibrant red.

The 2025 model marks the first time a panoramic tilt and slide sunroof has been fitted as an option to a Camry hybrid.

Interior Technology

Along with a new design, the 2025 Camry’s interior gets updated standard tech features, including a 7-inch digital instrument panel on the LE and SE models. Camry XLE and XSE trims have 12.3-inch digital instrument panels.

The new Camry will be fitted with the latest Toyota infotainment system, with 8-inch touch screens on lower trims and 12.3-inch screens on higher trims. All will feature wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. A mix of five USB-A and USB-C ports will be spread throughout the cabin, and the car’s Bluetooth connectivity will be able to link to two phones simultaneously.

For Camry drivers who subscribe to the Drive Connect service, the infotainment system will respond to natural voice instructions, cued with phrases such as “Hey, Toyota.” When the system needs updates, the car can download and install them without needing to visit a dealership.

Cargo Room

Toyota has not released cargo capacity numbers for the new Camry, though we would be surprised if they vary significantly from the current Camry’s 15.1 cubic feet of trunk space.

Driver-Assistance and Safety Technology

Toyota has long been a leader in the number of advanced driver-assistance and safety technologies it includes in its vehicles. The 2025 Camry comes standard with the Toyota Safety Sense 3.0 package of technologies. It includes:

  • Automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection
  • Full-speed adaptive cruise control
  • Lane-departure warning
  • Lane-centering assist
  • Traffic-sign recognition
  • Automatic high-beam headlights
  • Blind-spot monitoring
  • Rear cross-traffic alert
  • Proactive Driving Assist, which keeps you separated from other roadway users and brakes gently as you reach corners

Upper-trim models are available with front cross-traffic alert, lane-change assist, a surround-view camera system, traffic jam assist, and front and rear parking assist with automatic braking.

When Can I Buy a 2025 Toyota Camry?

Toyota expects the redesigned Camry will arrive in dealer showrooms next spring as a 2025 model.

How Much Will the 2025 Toyota Camry Cost?

Toyota has not yet announced pricing for the 2025 Camry. The 2024 Toyota Camry starts at $26,420, and the 2024 Toyota Camry Hybrid starts at $28,855. Given the additional equipment on the new Camry, a modest price increase can be expected.

The Competition

Though the midsize car class has fewer competitors than it once did, the new Camry will still face stiff competition from its long-time archrival, the Honda Accord. The Accord was redesigned for 2023 and, like the current generation Camry, earns a spot atop our midsize car ranking.

It will also face the Kia K5 and Hyundai Sonata. Both sedans feature warranties that are far better than the Toyota offers. The Subaru Legacy comes standard with all-wheel drive, which is optional on the redesigned Camry.
