Toyota first came up with Camry back in 1982 as a compact car and over the years the Camry has grown up to be a sedan. The Toyota Camry has been in production for 38 years and now with the launch of the 2020 Toyota Camry its sure that the car is going to stay in the market for long.

The Camry is one of the most successful cars in the industry. The major reason behind Camry's successful run is the fact that Toyota hasn't done too much experimentation with it. The Camry has always been a very basic car and it does all the basic things correctly and this is something that gives the Camry an edge over its rivals.

The Camry is not the car that you generally flaunt. Functionality and practicality is what this car is supposed to offer. Analyzing all the features offered across all the variants, the base L variant of the Camry makes more sense. It comes with all the basic essential features and comes as a great value for your money. But if you want a more powerful Camry, opt for the XLE V6 trim which will cost you 11 grand more than the base L.

2020 Toyota Camry Engine and Performance

8.0/10

The 2020 Camry comes equipped with 2 engine specifications: a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder and a 3.5-liter V6 engine. The V6 however, is just available for the XLE and XSE trims as an option with both priced at $34,450 and $35,000 respectively. The 2.5-liter engine generates 203 horsepower and 182 pound-feet of torque while the 3.5-liter V6 makes 301 horsepower and massive 267 pound-feet of torque.

The 8-speed Automatic transmission is smooth and shifts are hassle-free. Even the downshifting is pretty decent in the Camry. There’s enough credibility on the Camry’s engine that already gives it a run for its class already. The Camry does very well compared to its peers for a number of reasons and makes for a great choice.

The rivals aren’t as powerful as the Camry is. In fact, the closest rival, Honda Accord is 11 HP deficient to the Camry. It is followed by the Nissan Altima Sedan that make 188 hp.

Acceleration 

As this is the most powerful car in the segment, the acceleration is really impressive. The Camry hits the 60 MPH mark in 5.8 secs which is remarkable performance when compared to its competitors. It covers the quarter-mile distance in 14.3 secs which is much faster than any of its rivaling cars. Being a family sedan, the Camry it still manages to put great numbers in terms of acceleration.

The underpowered rivals of the Camry, the Honda Accord and the Nissan Altima lacks a lot in terms of acceleration. The Honda does 0-60 MPH in 7.6 secs. while the Altima does it in 7.7 secs.

Ride and Handling

The ride quality and handling of the Camry has improved a lot when compared to its predecessor. The engine responses are sharper and the gear shifts are more refined. Driving the Camry has become sportier and driving it is fun.

The Camry does handle really well. There isn’t much body roll and is well mannered. The steering isn’t sharp like a sports car but you do feel connected and the level of feedback from the steering wheel is good. It is a docile car and will readily follow all your commands.

 

 Toyota has indeed left no stone unturned to ensure the luxury of its upscale interiors aid on its top-of-the-class driving experience. All Camry trims have electric power steering. The Wheel itself is no short of comfort as the SE models have a beautiful looking leather-wrapped steering wheel, stitched for handling convenience.

 Braking

The Camry is equipped with the largest brakes in the segment. It gets 12 inches diameter discs up front and 11.1 inches diameter discs at the rear. Slam the brakes and the Camry will come to a halt at a distance of 123 feet from 60 MPH.

2020 Toyota Camry Fuel Economy

8.0/10

Camry offers a decent fuel economy and is among the best in class. You won’t have to worry about hitting the refill station often. The Fuel Economy for the standard 2.5 L i-4 engine gives 20 city/34 highway – 41 combined. Consequentially, the more powerful 3.5 L V-6 engine gives 21 city/30 highway – 24 combined.

2020 Toyota Camry Interior

7.8/10

The Camry has a lot of space to offer on the inside. On the front row, you have 38.3 inches of headroom, 57.7 inches of shoulder room and 42.1 inches of legroom. Jump to the back seats and you get 38 inches of headroom, 55.7 inches of shoulder room and 38 inches of legroom.

Seats are plush and offer good back and thigh support. Over the long-range run, the seats prove to be comfortable with multiple adjustments availability. The interior of Camry might look old school but it is quite practical.

Seating and Comfort

The Camry’s quality shows in its interior. The cabin is attractive and filled with quality materials. The infotainment controls are intuitive and easy to use while driving. There is plenty of room in the front and the back, and taller passengers won’t feel cramped in the rear.

 

The Camry’s interior is spacious and comfortable, with wide, accommodating front seats and a back seat that’s big enough for adults. The center stack is extremely well organized, with intuitive buttons and knobs to control the car’s infotainment and climate-control systems.

7.0/10

The 2020 Camry has received minor tweaks from last year's design. The new design has given it a striking appearance and it looks sportier. The Camry is an instant eyeball grabber and gets a good street presence. While the dimensions are small and apt for seating 5 people.

Dimension and Weight

 

While there’s no eye-catcher in the figures, the Camry does well, marginally nonetheless. It has a much better ground clearance compared to its peers, being almost the same size. The wheelbase of the Camry is an attraction, with each of the Camry trims offering different wheels with a touch of elegance.

2020 Toyota Camry Competition

2020 Toyota Camry L VS 2020 Nissan Altima 2.5S 

Both these care can opt for a mere difference of a few thousand dollars. Even after featuring a similar capacity engine, the Altima falls short in terms of power output along with the 2-speed gearbox which delivers even less fuel economy. The Altima also is a much slower car than the Camry in terms of acceleration. The only plus point in the Altima is its brakes. it comes out to be the best performer in brake distance test.

2020 Nissan Altima

2020 Toyota Camry L VS 2020 Honda Accord LX 1.5 T

The Honda Accord is just $75 cheaper than the Camry. It is 11 horses deficient to the Camry but surprisingly has marginally better acceleration figures. The Camry has better fuel economy figures than the Honda Accord. The Honda Accord and the Toyota Camry both offer an equal amount of space on the inside while the Honda Accord beats the Camry in case of cargo volume.

It is pretty much a tie in this case. Both the Accord and the Camry are equally good and offer a similar amount of tech and features. If you just need those better power and economy figures, then the Camry is the one for you. If you crave the better acceleration figures on paper and need that extra bit of luggage space then the Honda Accord is the one for you.
