Toyota is reinventing its signature mid-size sedan with a fresh array of updates, spanning across design, tech and performance. The 2025 Camry is the Japanese carmaker’s answer to all those on the hunt for a fuel-efficient family sedan with a comforting cabin and a decent bit of sportiness.

Toyota states that prices should start around $28,400 (approximately 23.7 lakh) for the base model till around $36,125 (approximately 30.1 lakh) for the top variant. The new Camry is offered in four different trims, the LE, SE, XLE, and XSE. Being the sportier variants of the bunch, the SE and the XSE offer sport-tuned suspension which is a firmer setup compared to the other variants.

Toyota has stated that these trims will feature new shock absorbers which offer greater stability and handling when compared to the other variants. The car comes with a reworked front-end design that gives it a meaner look. The SE and XSE bring a more aggressive look to the lineup with sport-mesh front grilles, side rockers, dual-tip exhausts, and blacked out vertical air vents that make the face of the cars look more chiselled. The XSE turns the mean look a notch higher with its front bumper cannards and unique rear diffuser.

The 2025 Camry goes all-hybrid

One of the key decisions with this model was shortening the scope of its powertrain options down to just two hybrid variants. While the previous generation had a 3.5-litre V6, which did not reach Indian shores, the upcoming 2025 Camry will have two engine options for the two different drivetrains offered. The car comes standard with a 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine.

Regardless of the specific trim, customers can opt between a front-wheel-drive (FWD) variant with the engine coupled with two electric motors or an all-wheel-drive (AWD) variant with a third motor driving the rear axle. The FWD powertrain gives a combined output of 225 bhp while the AWD variant provides the max power of 232 bhp with on-demand torque distribution between the front and rear. While there are no official figures, Toyota estimates that the Camry should provide around 51 mpg (21.6 kmpl) for the LE variant.

The 2025 Toyota Camry features upgrades to its interior and infotainment along with a healthy offering of safety features. While cloth and synthetic upholstery comes in as standard, the SE and XSE models feature leather upholstery along with heated seats and steering wheel.

The Camry LE gets an eight inch infotainment screen and the SE has the option of a larger 12.3 inch unit which is standard in the other two variants. The same goes for the digital gauge cluster where only the top two trims get the bigger display.

The Camry further features standard driver aids such as emergency braking with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, lane assist. Toyota has also packed in a Proactive Driving Assist which gently presses the brakes for the driver. The 2025 Toyota Camry is India-bound and is expected to reach dealerships towards the end of Spring.
