2022 Toyota Camry
The definition of dependable, from its ability to combine sharp style, exceptional comfort, top safety, sporty performance, and the newest technology, the Toyota Camry has been a standout in the family sedan segment for over 40 years. The 2022 Toyota Camry is no different, a year removed from an all-new look and improvements across the board. Read on to learn more about the latest version of the Camry, with Hamilton’s home for all things automotive: Red Hill Toyota!
A fresh new look last year gives admirers of the 2022 Toyota Camry plenty to be happy about, from the subdued style of the LE and XLE trims to the athletic air around the SE and XSE models. The former offer a redesigned front fascia with smart lines balancing between sporty and refined, while the latter come complete with a honeycomb-style grille and side vent inserts that drip with motorsport inspiration. The speediest of them all, the XSE adds an integrated spoiler, 19-inch alloy wheels, and an available panoramic glass roof for a look that leans more sports car than family sedan.
Form meets function thanks to the low centre of gravity found on the 2022 Camry, with a wide stance giving way to flared fenders both offering aesthetic appeal alongside astounding aerodynamics. The limited 2022 Toyota Camry Nightshade Edition amps up the style even further, with 18-inch black alloy wheels, black handles, gloss black window trim, and even more dark detailing found across the body of this upgraded SE trim. If that weren’t enough, the limited Toyota Camry TRD gets the Toyota Racing Development treatment, including 19-inch matt black TRD-branded alloy wheels, a TRD body kit, as well as a TRD cat-back dual exhaust system catching the light thanks to its polished stainless steel tips.

A driver-centric cockpit provides easy access to the 2022 Toyota Camry and all of its incredibly intuitive controls, while that same front seat offers standard heating on the SE trim and up. Upgrade that even further to enjoy an 8-way power adjustable seat and steering wheel, while the XSE and XLE add SofTex leather seating into the mix. Everything from Bluetooth to driver safety features are available at your fingertips thanks to the well-designed steering wheel buttons, while a quick reach forward with your right hand provides access to a 9-inch touchscreen display. Regardless of which trim you choose, the 2022 Camry offers an abundance of space both up front and in the rear, along with a generous cargo capacity to help you execute your everyday errands with ease.

While it is, at its heart, a family friendly sedan, the 2022 Toyota Camry offers no shortage of performance thrills thanks to its two different engines. First off, the base 2.5-litre 4-cylinder provides over 200 horsepower while adding exceptional fuel economy numbers, whether you find it in the LE, XLE, SE, or the upgraded XSE trim. For the XLE and XSE, a larger and more powerful 3.5-litre V6 packs a major punch with over 300 horses at your disposal—all while still offering the sort of smart and fuel efficient performance you expect from a Toyota. Regardless of which engine or model you choose, your every drive will be smooth and in control thanks to the 8-speed Direct Shift automatic transmission, providing dynamic shifting prowess along with wheel-mounted paddle shifters on both the SE and XSE trims.
A finely-tuned machine, whether you opt for the base LE or the Camry TRD, this Toyota offers incredible control thanks to its low centre of gravity while all-wheel drive versions benefit from the advanced Dynamic Torque Control AWD system that automatically shifts power to the necessary wheels when it detects any loss of traction. And that says nothing of the incredibly smart and efficient 2022 Toyota Camry Hybrid, and its fuel efficient drive.

Safety & Technology
Smart and well equipped, the 2022 Toyota Camry continues the proud Toyota tradition of featuring the latest technology for both safety and infotainment. It all starts with the standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility that comes with Toyota’s Connected Services, along with access to a smartphone app, Navigation with Destination Assist, roadside assistance, and a range of other great functionality. The “floating” multimedia display, available with a 9-inch touchscreen, allows you to focus on the road while making quick adjustments, while the available 10-inch head-up display found on the XLE and XSE trims ensures you’ll never have to take your eyes off the road ahead again!
Of course, even if you don’t opt for the head-up display, the 2022 Camry provides more than its fair share of advanced safety features, all thanks to the most advanced grouping of active safety features found in a Toyota yet: Toyota Safety Sense 2.5+ (TSS 2.5+). From Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection & Bicycle Detection, to Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Lane Tracing Assist, and more, the 2022 Toyota Camry has every angle covered. Speaking of angles, the available Curve Speed Management system can slow your vehicle down around corners if it senses you’re losing traction, while the cherry on top is the available Bird’s Eye View Camera offering a full 360-degree view around the vehicle while you’re parking.
Toyota Camry Model Changes
The extensive redesign of the 2021 Toyota Camry covered all the bases, inside and out, making the changes to the 2022 version more minimal tweaks than anything else. The addition of Toyota Safety Sense 2.5+ last year leaves nothing wanting in the safety department, while the extensive interior redesign and front fascia are still as fresh as they were in 2021. Despite offering few changes, the 2022 Camry does boast dual-zone automatic climate control across the model lineup, alongside illuminated mirrors, new paint options, and an all-new set of selectable driving modes.
