    Inside, we increased the volume.
    Then we decreased the volume.
    Whether you're talking about interior space or noise levels, volume has a lot to do with driving comfort. In crafting the reinvented 2012 Camry, our engineers found a variety of ingenious ways to add interior volume where it matters most, without increasing the external dimensions of the vehicle. They also reduced the volume of exterior noise entering the cabin. In these ways and more, our engineers were able to improve on what was already a remarkably comfortable vehicle. And that speaks volumes.
    "Several coworkers and I try to carpool to the office whenever possible. I've noticed that on the days when it's my turn to drive, more of them come along for the ride. Go figure. "


      Adjustable a total of eight ways, the reinvented Camry's available power driver's seat gives you plush and fully customizable comfort.

      Enhanced Space

      To help create Camry's roomy environment, we sculpted the lower door panels to allow for more lateral knee room and reshaped the headlining for greater head room. The general sense of spaciousness, too, was enhanced by opening up the outside view. We engineered pillars that were more streamlined. Upper door surfaces and the top of the instrument panel were reshaped. Even the sun visors were repositioned to further open the forward view.

      Crafted Quiet

      Employing sound-imaging instruments, extensive tests were conducted to pinpoint areas where road and engine noise was entering the cabin.Additional sound-absorbing measures were then taken in those areas to help create Camry's whisper-quiet ride.

      Ready Versatility

      To help you transport longer items, such as snow skis or that towering new floor lamp, Camry's 60/40 split fold-down rear seat drops to create a handy pass-through to the voluminous trunk.


        Camry's accommodating interior is designed to help you manage your liquid assets, providing four cup holders and six bottle holders.


          In Camry, rear-seat comfort doesn't take a back seat to front-seat comfort. To help improve rear-seat leg room, we redesigned the shape of the front seats, allowing for additional knee space.

          Nothing helps steady the ride like a few bumps.

          The bumps we're referring to are not the ones you encounter on the road surface. Those are deftly handled by Camry's tuned suspension. The bumps we're talking about are small, specially shaped projections called vortex generators that we positioned on Camry's undercarriage and at key points on the body. It may sound counterintuitive, but vortex generators help stabilize performance by dictating airflow behavior around the vehicle.


          As air flows over the surfaces of a moving vehicle, friction can cause that air to tumble over and under itself, increasing drag and creating erratic air pressure forces around the vehicle. Vortex generators alter the airflow before it becomes turbulent, creating a series of controlled spins, or vortices, and helping to equalize air pressure forces, reduce drag and improve vehicle stability.


        • To enhance Camry's overall ride quality, we optimized the shock absorber tuning to achieve a high-end dampening feel. We improved Camry's handling and stability by recalculating the rear suspension geometry.

          SE V6

        • Camry SE V6 is available with sporty 18-in. wheels and tires. To better handle this larger setup, we made the knuckle and lower arm assembly stronger and lighter.


        • Airflow under a vehicle is crucial to performance. On the reinvented Camry we added a series of broad plates that feature aerodynamic fins front and rear to help manage air turbulence beneath the vehicle, improving stability and handling.
        Ready for whatever the future brings. Including corners.
        Get behind the wheel of Camry SE and there will be no doubt that this is one forward-looking sedan. Thanks to Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i), Camry offers not just assertive power, but sensible mileage too - a good quality to have in this age of high fuel prices. Factor in SE's sport-tuned suspension, and you have an impressive blend of performance and efficiency. This winning combination clearly puts Camry ahead of the curve.
          SE V6 Power
        • Right feet rejoice. The available 3.5-liter DOHC 24-valve Dual VVT-i V6 engine produces an impressive 268 horsepower and 248 lb.-ft. of torque, while still achieving an EPA-estimated 30 highway mpg rating.1 Paired with the 6-speed automatic transmission with sequential shift and paddle shifters, this powerplant delivers a driving experience that's nothing short of exhilarating.
          Paddle Shifters
        • Let your fingers do the shifting. Camry SE's race-inspired paddle shifters deliver real hands-on performance. Not only do these paddles upshift and downshift almost twice as fast as the previous-generation Camry's, thesystem automatically matches revs during downshifting. To shift, simply pull the right paddle to upshift and the left one to downshift.
          Sport Handling
        • Improving handling dynamics typically involves suspension components. But Camry's impressive agility was also augmented by making the steering more responsive. To accomplish this, we not only increased the steeringgear ratio, but also optimized the Electric Power Steering (EPS) system for more sensitivity. Clearly, Camry turns more than just heads.
          18-in. Alloy Wheels
        • Style your ride. Standard on the Camry SE V6, these sharp 18-in. alloy wheels offer sporty performance, not to mention sporty looks.
        • Things are looking up. Camry's remarkable driving experience is made even more uplifting with an available power tilt/slide moonroof, complete with sliding sunshade.
        We took America's best-selling car and went even farther.
        Over the past 25 years, Camry has won the loyalty of millions with its unique blend of efficiency, features, value and reliability. Now, with the 2012 Camry Hybrid LE delivering an estimated 43/39/41 mpg,2 it's more than just economical, it's one of the most fuel-efficient sedans in its class. Plus, it achieves all that while producing 200 hp. Time to add even more Americans to its legion of enthusiasts - though gas station owners may be less than thrilled.


            Camry's gauges provide current fuel economy information on the fly and are specially illuminated for quick and easy reading in most light conditions.

            LEADING "GREEN"

            For more than a decade, Toyota has been a world leader in the development of eco-sensitive technology with our advanced Hybrid Synergy Drive® system. And with each passing year, this tried and tested system continues to get more efficient, more powerful, more reliable and more popular.

              ENERGY MONITOR

              The Multi-Information Display helps keep you continually apprised of the Hybrid Synergy Drive® energy flow and its efficient management.

            Higher blue-sky thinking.

            High gas mileage and low emissions are not the only measures of how far our hybrids have come. Camry's re engineered Hybrid engine also delivers an astonishing 200 horsepower. In fact, Camry Hybrid boasts a 0-60 time of a mere 7.6 seconds.1 What's more, this performance is accomplished while producing less vibration and noise, further enhancing the refined driving experience for which this legendary sedan is known.


            Camry's new hybrid engine features a variety of modifications designed to enhance performance and fuel economy. For starters, the engine employs the Atkinson Cycle, which optimizes the durations of the engine's four strokes to help maximize fuel efficiency. The expansion ratio was increased as well, further boosting gas mileage. A long-port plastic intake manifold, together with a long-branch exhaust manifold, also enhances performance, saves weight and reduces engine noise. The gear-driven balance shaft was even coated with a low-friction resin for low vibration and additional efficiency.


            • By reengineering various vehicle components and employing state-of-the-art materials, we reduced Camry's overall curb weight by 200 lb.

              BELTLESS ENGINE

            • Camry's reinvented hybrid engine is entirely beltless. This design not only offers remarkable reliability, but alsosaves weight, reduces friction and improves fuel economy.


            • An electric water pump doesn't employ a v-belt. This design not only improves efficiency, but also shortens engine warm-up time, helping to reduce emissions.


            • We engineered a way to move the battery forward, opening up more room in the trunk and ensuring that we didn't take up otherwise usable space.
              "The 2012 Camry is a "new era" sedan that stands to redefine the very image of the number one standard mid-size sedan."
            • Yukihiro Okane, Chief Engineer, Product Planning Toyota Development


            • The use of more advanced tires allows tire air pressure to be increased, thereby reducing rolling resistance and furtherimproving efficiency.

            We took a hard look at blind spots.

          • Knowing what's around your vehicle is key to confident driving. That's why the 2012 Camry offers innovative features like the available Blind Spot Monitor (BSM)1, 2 and backup camera.3, 4 By helping to reveal hard-to-see areas, Camry helps keep potentially dangerous situations from escaping your notice. In short, Camry helps keep things that are out of sight from being out of mind.

              Even with properly adjusted side mirrors, adjacent vehicles may enter "blind spots," areas that are outside of the driver's view. Camry's Blind Spot Monitor BSM) uses radar to scan these blind spots for moving motor vehicles.


                Located on both sides of Camry, the monitors identify moving vehicles in its blind spots. If the system detects a vehicle in the area, it illuminates a warning indicator on the appropriate side mirror.
                Via Toyota's 24/7 call center, available Safety Connect® offers subscribers helpful features such as Emergency Assistance, Stolen Vehicle Locator, Roadside Assistance and Automatic Collision Notification. Safety Connect® also offers the reliability of embedded cellular and GPS technology.


                  Smart Key offers you a note of enhanced luxury. When you approach Camry with the Smart Key fob in your pocket or purse, the interior illuminates automatically; the doors unlock when you touch either front door handle; the trunk opens with the touch of its handle; and the engine starts with the push of a button.


                  When backing up, the area behind Camry that's visible to the camera is displayed on the touch-screen of the audio system's display.

                Safety to the power of ten standard airbags.

                As somebody once said, there is safety in numbers. That's why every 2012 Camry comes with a comprehensive airbag system that offers an impressive ten airbags. The system includes both driver and front passenger airbags, front and rear side curtain airbags, front and rear seat-mounted side airbags, and both driver and front passenger knee airbags - all standard equipment.

                Star Safety System™

                Toyota's Star Safety System™ is an advanced suite of six safety features offered as standard equipment on every Camry. The system includes Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control (VSC),2 Traction Control (TRAC), Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA)3 and Smart Stop Technology (SST).4 Classified as "active" safety features, they're designed to work proactively in certain situations to help prevent accidents from occurring in the first place.

                  SMART STOP TECHNOLOGY (SST)

                • Smart Stop Technology provides you with additional peace of mind. Under certain conditions, when both the brake and the accelerator pedals are pressed at the same time, SST is designed to automatically reduce engine power and help bring the vehicle to a stop.

                  CRUMPLE ZONES

                • An important element of occupant protection, crumple zones are structurally engineered to absorb and dissipate energy in the event of a collision by a process known as controlled deformation.


                • Camry's front seats are engineered to yield in a controlled fashion in certain low-speed, rear-endcollisions, helping to reduce the risk of neck injuries.

                  LATCH SYSTEM

                • The Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren system provides an added measure of safety for the smaller members of your family. LATCH includes low-mounted anchors & tether anchors on each outboard rear seat.

                  TIRE PRESSURE MONITOR

                • Proper tire pressure is always important for safe driving. TPMS evaluates the pressure of the tires and issues a warning if the pressure becomes critically low.

                  3-POINT SEATBELTS

                • Camry provides 3-point seatbelts with pretensioners for front seating positions, while the front seats are equipped with the added safety of 2-step force limiters.
