While the latest Honda Accord goes for bland, the redesigned 2025 Toyota Camry rips a page out of the Prius's playbook. And that's not limited to the styling, as the midsize sedan is going hybrid-only for its ninth generation, and all-wheel drive is now available on all trims for the first time. All of this gives the Toyota a huge advantage over its few remaining competitors, as the midsize sedan market threatens to shrink itself into oblivion.




The new Camry shares its hybrid powertrain with several other new Toyota models, pairing a naturally aspirated 2.5 liter four-cylinder with a choice of two or three electric motors. Going for two motors means that power will be sent to the front wheels only, producing a total of 225 horsepower. Adding an extra motor at the back raises total outpout to 232 horsepower, an option that's available on all four trims. All 2025 Camry models will send power to the wheels through a CVT automatic transmission.




The Camry's refreshed exterior doesn't exactly mirror the huge changes going on beneath the bodywork, as the sedan's general styling mostly sticks to what it had before. Most of the adjustments are reserved for the front end, where plenty of Prius influence makes its way into the new headlights and redesigned grille. Along the side, the new Camry could easily pass for the previous model, while the rear end receives a new set of taillights and a reshaped bumper, though they don't stray far from last year's Camry either.


Luckily, the interior shakes things up a lot more, featuring a cabin layout that mimics the larger and funkier Crown. The two models share a steering wheel and have the same fabric trim piece that rises up from the center console, curving upward to span the entire passenger side of the cabin. There are also larger screens, with both the digital gauge cluster and infotainment system growing to 12.3 inches on the XLE and XSE trims. The cheaper LE and SE, meanwhile, stick to a smaller set of 8-inch displays. Standard on all trims, however, is a handy wireless charger, along with five USB ports spread throughout the cabin.



The Camry's trim lineup consists of four models for 2025, which are split into pairs that are centered on either sportiness or comfort. The LE and XLE provide the comfier experience, as the XLE comes with acoustic glass for the front-side windows, larger wheel sizes, leather seating, a heated steering wheel, keyless entry, and ambient lighting. The SE and XSE offer a sportier ride, featuring stiffer suspension tuning, black trim elements, and unique wheel designs. The XSE in particular adds dual exhaust tips, paint-colored rear diffuser, and black trim between the taillights.


Expect to see the 2025 Camry beginning to pop up on American roads sometime next year, with pricing to be announced later on. The redesigned sedan should be priced between the current lineup of gas and hybrid models, which means it could inch closer to $30,000.

2025 Toyota Camry Goes Fully Hybrid, Now Offers AWD On All Trims
